My Generation

My reaction to an article in CM Life on Millennials.

Whit Alleys Dziurka

This comic is my reaction an article in CM Life, the student paper of Central Michigan University concerning the ageism that Millennials, and previous generations' youth culture, face in the wake of change. We are spoken of dismissively and with tones of pity, instead of the hope we need.

Nothing happening in youth culture is new, people are going to test boundaries and have fun.

We, as a culture, should recognize and harness this, instead of reprimand and shame it.
