Generation Y

This is an e-mail that was forwarded from one of my dad's friends, and I got a good laugh out of it!

Hmm, I've always wondered this myself... now I know.

    I was born in 1990, do I really have to be categorized with these douchey 1995+ kids that listen to miley cyrus and justin beiber??

    I agree I was born in 1991 and I hate the fact that we have to be put with the douche bag kids of today :'(

    Im lucky to be part of Gen X - I still believe that we had the best music - no matter what genre.

    1990. Still feel like I should have been born in the 50's. I would have been such a good hippie.

    You can't really name a Generation while they are babies. You also cannot categorize a 30 year gap as being in the same generation, especially since most of my friends and their children would both be considered Generation Y.
