She says my generation just doesn’t fight enough.
Like their’s did. The Seventies. Oh, the Seventies.
We’ve turned inward, got depressed, sit around doing
She says we’re distracted, unfocused, sad and thinking about fringe things,
Like trans rights. At a time like this.
I say so the democratic principles you fought for are only relevant so long as they apply to your own self-interest.
I call her an entitled boomer.
No she says look at China look at Russia, there are more important things. I say Putin hates trans rights, thinks they symbolise the decadence of the West. Saying stuff like that you’re just playing into his narrative.
She gives me that look I always get “just because you’re good at arguing, doesn’t mean you’re right!”
But I am right. I’m almost always right.
Our generation don’t fight enough, like there’s did. And yet, I’m always the one who’s too combative.
Grounded for defending myself in playground fights boys started.
My brother hit a boy for saying he liked John Major. They overlooked that.
Our generation don’t fight enough. Like there’s did.Turned inwards, stopped caring about the world.
Not true not true not true. BOOMER.
Look at my instagram feed. All this shit about not reading newspapers and making peace with the world. Spiritual mumbo-jumbo about letting go and thinking only good things. “Stop resisting what is” and all that crap.
The bottom line is I love her.
