Davis Hunter English 102 February 8, 1999 Generation X The generation I am apart of is called Generation X and we are known as a sex crazed and drug-happy one, (that is what the generation ahead of us said. ) I believe if that there ever was a generation as such it was the baby boomers; ever hear of Woodstock They want to stereotype us and ignore to what we have to say.

    Generation X Generation X, a generation without its own identity. A generation of people who have total disregard for rules and laws. A bunch of drug users and drinkers. A generation without morals or religion. Misfits with no respect for their parents and elders. Selfish and cold-hearted individualists. These are only some of the things I have heard about Generation X. Many of them I find appalling to have to listen to because I know none of these things to be true. These are nothing but stere...

    Generation X Question: Popular culture has dubbed you and your contemporaries Generation X. Respond to this label and describe any feelings brought about by this. My main objective in writing this essay was to articulate my feelings on a topic which should matter to those of us who don't want to be percieved in such a general manner. At the same time I tried to draw comparisons to misunderstood generations of the past. I drew the analogy about algebra because it provides a strong backbone for an...

    I believe that Generation X exists, however, I do not think that everyone in this generation fits the description peddled by the media. The media feels the need to hang labels on each generation and give them each their own characteristics, but I fail to see the reasoning in all the name calling and insults. The media builds the hype about Generation X, therefore making typical stereotypes seem overwhelmingly to the generation. So, when I am asked the question, "Does Generation X really exist or...

    People think that generation X today does nothing but complains about everything and it is so apathetic. Consequently, we can realize that it is a generation that is completely different from the prior generation. Karl Zinsmeister, the writer of The Humble Generation, states that some people believe that X ers are materialistic, inconsiderate and unprogressive. The author also states that liberals accuse them of lacking exemplars. Generation X possesses different major characteristics which are ...

    My Generation To every upside there is a downside. The downside to my generation has a huge impact on my generation. It used to be students bringing books to school, now a days its a different story. Some students are carrying guns and knives in their book bags to school fearing that someone might start a fight with them. In some neighborhoods its not even safe for kids to play outside without getting caught in a crossfire. Another big downside to my generation in my opinion, is racism. Racism ...
  • Dissolution Of The Theory Of Spontaneous Generation
    692 words
    Spontaneous generation is the belief that some life forms are created from non-living things. It was an accepted theory to explain the creation of living things since the times of the ancient Romans to the early nineteenth century, when people began to become more skeptical of this idea. By the 20 th century, spontaneous generation was known to be an incorrect theory. The reason it was known to be incorrect, primarily, was because of four scientists: Francesco Redi, John Needham, Lazzaro Spallan...

    Did you know that you are considered part of the first generation symbolizing the decline of the nation? Generations are labeled all the time by historians, novelists and journalist in an attempt to capture the spirit or essence of an era. But the term Generation X carries all the negativity of propaganda and stereotype. The term Generation X has become a derisive media batch phrase, a snide put-down for those 80 million people who, like me, were born between 1961 and 1981. They are the children...

A few of my own are, what the term hip hop generation defines, what are the misconceptions of this generation, and what does the future of this generation hold? When you take a look at society from one generation to the next each era has there own significance. It's like a fad almost, something that you do for one period of time may fade out and then the next ...

    My Generation Every group receives a name, whether it is a club or organization, plants, animals or people. No matter what it is, it will receive a label so that it can be referred to easily. For instance, those born between the years 1977 and 1997 were given the title of the "Digital Generation." This label was attained because of the widespread technology that is available to them from birth. The "Digital Generation" is not only about the Internet and technology, but is also about high values,...

    "Your generation is nothing but a bunch of computer addicted slackers. You kids don't care about anything." These phrases and others can be overheard coming from the mouths of baby boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, and other Generation Y predecessors ("What happened" 1). For years now, Generation Y, those born between 1977 and now, have been viewed negatively (Alch 1). Though the origins of the "slacker" title are uncertain, the term has certainly stuck. It could be considered a fitting...

    Often we hear of the generation gap — that huge expanse between parent and child. Perhaps it is an acquaintance gap. Young people and adults do not know each other. The inability to communicate often enters the picture. Sometimes it is because neither knows what the other is interested in. They live under the same roof, but they rarely see one another, especially after the teenage years come along. The father goes off to work before the children are awake. Mother may go back to bed after ...
