More defeatist crap. I am proud to be Gen X and wouldn’t have it any other way. If I hadn’t grown up in the 1970s I would be a lot less of a person IMHO. It was a rich, confusing, creative, and turbulent decade and I loved the hell out of it. Thank God I played outside. Thank God we didn’t have cell phones when I was a kid. So many things I would give anything to get back. No that doesn’t mean I want to return to conditions for people of color, women, gay people, etc. But there was a baby in that bathwater — in fact I was one of the babies in bathwater, lol. Not ashamed at all.
