There's a certain sarcasm and negativity that comes from many characterized as Generation X. On it's best days it's a sarcasm and a negativity born of describing and targeting a problem or at least discouraging negative behavior by aiming countervailing negativity towards it's source.

I'm starting to think that younger generations are seeing that GenX style sarcasm and negativity the same way GenX viewed the Boomer and Greatest Generation's soft bigotry and racism.

"You just can't say that." and the like are being used in similar ways.

Call it Political Correctness or whatever you like, but like generations before, there are some tone shifts going on. And the shift gets stronger every year.

I wonder what the Millennials and GenZ will be told "they can't say" in another 10 or 15 years?

Marketers love the word millennials, they ain't giving that up, just because the people it originally applied to will be 40 in 5 years.
