Maybe I'm just getting old, but I find it disturbing when "boomer" is used as in insult or as a mockery. Is it so in your language too?

I don't think I've ever seen someone go against this kind of discriminatory language though so maybe it's just that I hang out with the wrong people =D

@arteteco I dont get offended by it so much as I immediately know its a person who isnt likely to add much value to most conversations.

@freemo well, I don't get offended neither, also because I'm not a boomer, but if I was called "old!" just because I fail to do something or because of a way I speak or act, that would make me feel quite bad

@arteteco Fair, though people with little value often say things that might be hurtful just to get attention since people rarely want to pay them attention due to their lack of value in the first place.

Its like the conspiracy theorists, the more you ignore them because what they say is in no way productive or helpful the louder and more offensive they get in the hopes someone will finally engage with them.
