Baby boomers (also known as boomers) are the demographic cohort following the Silent Generation and preceding Generation X. There are varying timelines defining the start and the end of this cohort; demographers and researchers typically use birth years starting from the early- to mid-1940s and ending anywhere from 1960 to 1964.
They grew up with basically everything handed to them, but as they grew older, attributed most of their success to themselves.
Boomers & Incels
Boomers tend to be very problematic for incels. Some Incels even argue that boomers have a part in creating inceldom due to poor parental education. Boomers tend to believe that every conflict or issue can be solved with hard work, a 'firm handshake', and a smile. And you can neutralize or solve any bad situation by simply being nice and and expressing yourself. Another belief that boomers hold is that being a gentleman and being nice will automatically attract women in modern dating spheres. Incels take responsibility in educating future generations with the Blackpill and the Redpill, something that the boomer generation failed to do. Boomers as a whole strongly accept materialism and strongly reject determinism. A lot of people in the Manosphere also blame baby boomers for wealth hoarding.
Being raised by the silent generation, boomers had the opportunity to meet women through warm approaches encouraged by their parents or community who understood the need for society to have a role in pair-bonding. Boomers are known to be neoliberals in old age and reject any meaningful societal involvement in personal affairs, including helping their children pairbond with women. They expect their children to do cold approaches and were the generation that elevated the first real PUAs into the mainstream in the 90s and early 2000s.
Wealth and Real Estate Hoarding
Boomers own 75%+ of the real estate market, often renting real estate out at ridiculously high prices. Baby boomers, along with their parents the silent generation, own 80% of American household wealth. This means everyone below age 53 in American only owns 20% of all the wealth in America and only a quarter of the real estate market. They are also not expected to leave any of it for their children, which is horrifying and will leave millenials in extreme poverty unless Boomers blow up the world with nuclear bombs in a fit of existential dread. Boomers blame millenials for not having enough money, but are in control of the issuance of new dollars, and they also have all of the money. So they are quite literally not giving millenials money and then blaming them for it. This generation is also responsible for the general government budget tightening in the 80s onward, which is also insane and will guarantee rampant millennial poverty unless millenial's learn from their parents mistakes (unlikely).
Hedonism & Notions of Success
Boomers educated the previous generations to think of themselves as special, and opportunity is only granted through 'hard work'. They often endorse their sons, and grandsons to move into the 'big city' and 'make it big', instead of keeping them humble. They perceive success in terms of material wealth, those who have the biggest house and the fastest cars 'wins'.
Patronizing Young People
Boomers are known to patronize younger people for being lazy and irresponsible. However, most boomers are overweight, in-debt, or simply dumb. They always use the excuse of well its just because im older now,but back in my day.. which is a none-argument. you can't really fact-check the "back in my day arguments".
The Silver Haired Fox Fallacy
An incel youtuber named Hell by the Dashboard Light said that men don't age like fine wine. While being in your twenties and thirties may be more attractive to women than being in your teens, nonetheless, men become milkmired and 'hit the wall' of an acceptable age for casual dating earlier than woman. Boomers often say that very old age is attractive in itself, which is something Hell argues to be a lie in his video series. The vast majority of Oldcels are sexually invisible to women according to hell.
There have been 4 American boomer presidencies: Clinton, W. Bush, Obama, and Trump. Key events which happened partly due to presidential action/inaction include:
- expansion of mandatory life sentencing, and universally more punitive prison sentencing laws (1994)
- workfare (1996)
- global war on terrorism (2001-now)
- warrantless surveillance of phone calls and emails (2001),
- indefinite detention without charge or trial (2001)
- global financial crisis (2008-now)
- sex recession (2008-now)
- warrantless surveillance of American internet searches, and the content of all international communication(2012)
Boomers are generally terrible at defending themselves too
