Every generation has its positives and negatives and each generation is flawed one way or another. This includes Gen Z. I'm a Gen Z myself as I was born in 2004.
I mean, first of all, we ate tide pods and other unedible things but we have grown so let's leave that in the past.
But in recent times I saw that Gen Z is making fun of people who wear a side part in their hair. I understand that's some people see this as a 'millennial' thing but we can't be preaching "Wear what you want" or "Do what you want" and pull stuff like that.
As a Gen Z, I feel embarrassed because I thought we knew better. And yes things go out of trend but that doesn't mean we have to belittle people for still doing things. It's non of our business how someone wears their hair.
We preach self-love and acceptance so just imagine this scenario a gen z is wearing a side part and loves their hair like that and goes on to tik tok to see other gen z's making fun of side parts, that person will then feel like they can't wear or else they won't 'fit in'. Is this what we really want. If you don't like it don't do it. This is a, you do you thing.
Another thing that I as a Gen Z don't understand is why do we bully millennials so much, I must say some jokes are funny but sometimes we tend to be hypocritical. For example Harry Potter, Gen Z went from laughing at millennials for their love for it to making endless tik toks and trying to shift realities.
In a nutshell, we tend to be hypocritical and not practising what we preach. There are probably more examples of this but these are the two I can remember from the top of my head. I think we should spend more time practising what we preach. At the end of the day, we are not the only generation out there and I'm fed up with our generations name being pulled through the mud because we pull stuff that doesn't really matter in the long run.
