Let’s be honest; everyone has had that chat with their parents explaining why they can’t say certain things anymore… However, that doesn’t mean that they will stop. We have all had the experience of telling someone from an older generation that their opinions are outdated and not relevant for the time in which we’re living. Sure, not all of their opinions are ridiculous, but boomers are some of the most stubborn people around. When you tell them to change their ways, they’ll tell you that you don’t see reality correctly. In order to prove our point, we have compiled a list of different old-fashioned opinions held by boomers that just don’t make sense anymore. And we hate to say it, but times have changed, Karen…
#1: Straws Only
There is no denying that women have always been expected to behave differently than men in society, whether it had to do with work, pleasure, or even dressing in the morning. But people are starting to realize that a lot of these behavioral differences don’t actually make any sense and are demanding answers.
Could someone please explain to us why it would be inappropriate for women to drink straight out of the bottle? This is just one of the many examples that are just so outdated; it simply doesn’t make any sense. When people forget the reason behind something, or it becomes irrelevant, that’s when you know it’s past its use-by date.
