    What is generation Z and when did that become a thing? I thought people were still millennials, this despite that being nebulous as you like and none really self identified as it.

    Equally citation very much needed as "everywhere I look" is fairly meaningless here. I can't say I have seen a call from what I presume are the younger members of society to remove the whole marriage thing, rights afforded to people or otherwise make life harder or act violently. Live and let live seems fairly endemic from where I sit. We now then have opposing notions of reality, in my case I have to imagine the push back from such things would be massive and it would have crossed my path (having a good giggle at the batshit insane notions from some sets is a hobby of mine).

    Some have speculated the reactionary approach to so much idiocy (commonly seen done in the name of "equality"/"diversity") will be a swing back towards whatever the opposite of that is but that is for the future. The closest I have seen is some in the equality/diversity camps have booted out gay males when it is convenient to them (in the points scoring game that is "oppression" then being a gay male, even better if they are white, does not score half as highly it would seem).

    Anyway, those examples aren't demeaning to gay people. You said it yourself, they're jokes. Everyone knows they're jokes and everyone knows they don't have any meaning behind them. Even gay people know they're jokes. I don't find it funny to just throw the word around like that myself, it's just meaningless sentences that have no point to them, that doesn't mean it's offensive though, it just means it's a bad joke.

    Heh, I did have a line there about such jokes but deleted it (it does happen occasionally in things I write) as I thought it too silly. Guess I was wrong.

    Anyway is it demeaning to gay people? Such things have been an insult since before I started school. In many ways much like gay is seldom taken to be a synonym for happy any more it seems gay has become a generic insult amount those of a certain age.

    I wanna know why gays as a collective whole have become such a toxic, hostile community lately. I have gay friends, bi friends, trans friends, and many of them have been disttancing themselves from the "LGBT+ community" because of the toxicity. I just don't understand what's going down recently.

    Don't generalize... Some people dislike gay people and that's their decision. But that doesn't mean that the whole entire gen Z is intolerant. Also, there really isn't a general consensus of birthdates/years for these "gen" titles.

    Dunno where ya live, but here (france), it's quite the opposite... the younger, the more gay tolerant.

    So it's actually not Gen Z, people born in 1994 to 2014 are actually part of the "iGen."
    Also it seems more like Millennials and iGen are are more LGBT+ friendly than any previous generation before. There is a loud anti-LGBT group, but they are actually a lot smaller than previous generation, they are just louder because they have the power of internet.

    People calling things "gay" is new? That's a 90s thing. Everything in the 90s was either EXTREME or GAY or RETARDED.

    People calling things "gay" is rather irritating.

    Generation Z is the gen after millennials I am basing it off of I video I saw from the infographics show. Perhaps it more a thing on my end. some people really sound serious when they say these things. Why can't people just be real with other people? I only crack jokes with sarcasm in my voice. these people sound pretty deadass when they say it. I guess its just a part of life.
