Whoopi Goldberg Rips “OK Boomer” Discourse in Fiery Monologue: “We Never Went to Sleep!”

Whoopi Goldberg has no time for the “OK boomer” discourse. On Tuesday morning, The View‘s longtime moderator gave a passionate speech in defense of her generation, which she believes is being unfairly attacked by millennials and Generation Z teens. Goldberg insisted that baby boomers “spent a lot of time trying to get this right,” and she cited cleaning up Los Angeles as an example of her generation’s commitment to paying it forward. “People keep saying, ‘Oh, y’all are not woke,'” said Goldberg. “We never went to sleep!”

touchy, touchy

My generation's been their laughing stock for years upon years, so my advice is to grow a pair.

Funny, I just read an article today about Xennials; a sub generation apparently different enough to have it’s own denomination. They’re the people with « analog childhood and digital adulthood ».

I think the whole thing (generations generalization) is a bit silly.

When I complain about boomer c*nts, it’s specific stereotype.

Pretty much like Zappa describing a hippie

Some people would put me in the Xennial category, but I find I don't identify as much with it as a lot of others my age might. My family got all technology kind of later than a lot of our friends, mostly because we lived in a place where the services just didn't reach out that far until later (thinking of both cable TV and any kind of internet service beyond dial-up).

And yes, Boomer is a state of mind. There are some people who don't fit the age profile, but TOTALLY fit the stereotype. And there are some who may be in that age group, but not really fit the stereotype.

Technically I’m a boomer(1964) but I identify much more with GenX.

That describes me exactly, tbh. Got the internet at home at age 13.

Good thing they bleeped out the word masterbation. Otherwise, everybody would be doing it.

I've also heard Xennials called "The Oregon Trail [micro]Generation." Which...the only reason that's true for me is that we had computers in my elementary school. But it does sort of sum up the age range we're talking about.

Definitely.

I had seen the term “Xennial” but I just assumed it was a boomer insult and ignored it, but it pretty much describes my experiences growing up.

I think I identify more with millennials than gen X just in terms of my life’s trajectory, though.

As far as Whoopi is concerned, she can suck it. Boomer is a state of mind, which, given her response, seems to apply at least a little bit to her.

I had internet during my childhood. (Nothing like what it is today) and I identify more with millennials, but my husband is just a few months older than me and is extremely denying the millennial thing and has been saying he’s a xennial.

I actually never had the internet at home, growing up. Definitely not a Xennial though.

I, too, did not have the internet at home growing up.

We got the internet when I was 14/15, so I'm probably xennial
But I rarely feel like I fit in with any generation

I was pretty retard compared to my friends who had computers since the release of the TRS-80.

Plus I got a Mac Performa, not Apple proudest moment.

i think we've had computers in the house since day one. i remember sitting in my dad's office with my brother and my dad would show us what he was doing on the PC. this was in the early 90s.

personally i don't wholly identify with one age group. each has their benefits.
