      It's more of the fact that "ok boomer" is being used as an escapist tactic instead of acknowledging irrational and illogical mindset and behaviorism within the modern generation. That's what boomers are upset about.

      People should be able to say the truth. What should not be accepted is imprisoning People who can say what their truth is and prove it. I want to know why are all these Men who keep the violence going still being able to go from one Woman or Man, and keep sleeping around with them. If a Woman does it once. She is the cause of every Man who was killed for having an affair. Not that I have ever caused such nonsense. America get a clue. The only ones allowing to keep assembling are the ones getting innocent People killed. We are being prevented from socializing for not being so destructive. I am not upset to NOT associate with the weakest Women and Men in this mess. I am upset that I have to be around them. I am ready to gather around People like myself who can care less. I don't have time to be imprisoned for weak Characters. President Trump needs to address who is who and stop violators from coming to my home. OR do not allow the four Government Agencies to call me crazy when I do something about it. Like unlawfully hold my compensation overdue.

      There has to be a ton of systematic oppression and extreme ageism for it to be the same thing.

      OK, I'm a 'Boomer', so what. I have all I need, a house, a car, no debts, money in the bank, and I'm retired so I don't need a job. You all can blame us for what you now have to live with but I'm probably going to die soon and wiln't care any more. If you don't like the world we left you with, well then too bad, I don't give a shit. It's yours now, live with it or not. Blaming me for what you have (or don't) is not of my concern, and shitting on me wiln't make your life any better. And just so you know I didn't bring any kids into this world as I saw how crappy the world was turning into. If you have anyone to blame it is YOUR parents, not me. If you don't like the world you live in - then fix it for yourselves. I didn't make this mess, look to the wealthy raping the world economy, political and religious corruption and propaganda for the guilty. We've become the target for what is wrong, but we are not to blame as a generation. Deal with it. 11-18-2019.

      There's nothing wrong with the phrase except that it's irritating. and I'm not a boomer, although I wish I was. bering part of the Australian National basketball team would be pretty amazing.

      As a GenX’er when someone says “Ok Boomer” to a GenXer, I think to myself, “Oh, isn’t that cute?”

      Think about this. He wrote out the full word Boomer while he just wrote the shortened phrase the n-word. I think that if Boomer was as offensive as the n word, why didn’t he just type the full version of the n word. it’s obviously more offensive if your to afraid to spell it or say it. Thank you for coming to my ted talk :)

    23. Avalautte

      Meanwhile in a parallel universe where “OK Boomer” is not offensive. It’s a compliment.

    24. The Late Night Documentary Channel

      Since saying "Okay "is a racist phrase liberals are exposing themselves as racists when they say "Okay boomer ".

      I'm young but young people should open their eyes and realize this: Your precious cell phone, Internet, and apps exist, and hell, YOU exist at all because of the boomers. The Greatest Generation had been through WW1, WW2, the Great Depression and if they hadn't done what they had done, none of us would be here so I suggest you open your eyes and choose your battles. It was the Boomers and prior that led a society where you could leave your doors and windows unlocked, not worry about your kid being taken by someone or wandering 50 feet away from you in the store, and had made the greatest advances in technology mankind has ever seen. I fear the day the power grid goes down for 5 days, people are so spoiled and can't even handle being without their phone for a couple hours. Most 30 year old men can't even change a tire, we have become a nation of wimps. Now crime and everybody being so touchy about everything. Remember these other countries like Russia and China are disciplined, and most of their regular citizens know how to rough it when they need to. We are in for some bad times if we don't start toughening up.

      1. Vegoid :D

        David C We aren’t talking about the G.I. Generation. It’s the Baby Boomers specifically, don’t bring them into this. We acknowledge the achievements of previous generations, but we don’t appreciate the hypocritical bullshit they try to tell us sometimes.

      I see alot of joke comments saying how old people say "oh we're not so sensitive" etc and then get offended when someone calles them a boomer. I don't think it's cuz they're sensitive about it, it's just how use millennials use it sometimes. Like when an elderly person speaks their opinion on a serious topic, and a young person thinks that's an opinion that shouldn't be thought in today's society. So they say "OK boomer". Its probably the fact we're judging them for their opinion on something they find serious. Like I'm sure if a young person had the same opinion as the elderly folk then they wouldn't be called boomer but instead called a bigot or a homophobe. And I've seen some, to be fair quite sad, millennials who have been offended when their friend jokingly calls them a boomer. It shouldn't offend people if it's apparently a "joke", which is why I think some elderly people find it disrespectful to be called that.

      A lot of the younger Millennials and Gen Z are actually calling Gen Xers "Boomers". Yes I know you guys are talking about "the Boomer mindset", not the actual age, but most of the people they seem to making fun of are 40 year olds. 40 year olds are Gen X. Baby Boomers are 60 and 70 year olds.

      As a Gen X I find this very funny. Narcissistic boomers have destroyed the western world, selling out to China etc etc.
