But that doesn't answer my question as to whether there is something wrong with respecting your elders, in general.
Also, yeah, I did look up what I said that prompted "ok boomer"
Yes context is needed tsar, because (ironically) it was in a thread started by you, where some people blew up at you because you used the word "holocaust" in a completely ironically way.
The "Ok boomer" was used towards me because I was, in part of my response, agreeing with and standing up for you, and that I also pointed out someother "come to jesus" stuff. Like why what sauce for the goose doesn't seem to be sauce for the gander when it comes to bad things happening to everyone, regardless of age or life situation.
So context is everything. When said to me in this case, it wasn't used ironically, it was used, among other things, to dismiss the very same exact life experience that poster had.
I said nothing about wisdom. There are people of every age that are dumber than a box of rocks. You can still respect them.
Something I know is not wise is, as every generation has done, come up with the idea that those older than them are mindlessly stupid, and should step the **** aside.
As I said in my last post, Nothing New Under the Sun.
Personally, I think the whole boomer, millenial, genXYZ alpahbet thing, is stupid as ****.
It does nothing but keep people from communicating with each other. It throws up and immediate barrier of "us against them"
