A seemingly innocent Facebook post by a WOMAN has revealed one of the key issues between Generation X and much younger people.
This person, claiming to be Gen Xer, complained that her Millenial daughter wouldn’t have children – so she took it upon herself and had two more children to carry.
It’s no secret that Millennials give birth at a slower rate than their parents.
A selection of Millenial Gina Tomaine for Philadelphia Magazine explains why this is happening among her colleagues.
“The number of babies born in the United States in 2018 was the lowest in 32 years.
“None of this should really come as a surprise,” she wrote.
“Millennials… see the world differently than our parents did.
“Every step of the way, my generation questioned the conventional paths our parents took, choosing instead to try to build a future more in line with what we value, what we believe is better.”
This new way of thinking, however, did not appeal to Millennial parents, and one woman became so frustrated with her daughter that she took the matter herself.
“I am Gen X, and I have a big problem with how to give weight to Millenials,” a screenshot of a Facebook post was shared on Twitter.
The 42-year-old went on to explain that her 22-year-old daughter decided she didn’t want to have children and plans to have a sterilization procedure in the near future.
The post continued: “But souls who need our family for ancestral or karmic reasons still need to be born.
“So I’m having a hard time giving birth and raising two children that were supposed to be born to her but can’t because she’s too selfish to have children.”
This opinion sparked a huge debate about sterilization and having children, while others complained about Millennials feeling like they could never win.
“As a Millenial, it’s exhausting that we STILL get blamed for everything,” said one user.
“Millennials are killing the ‘Give birth and use their existence to distract you from your problems’ industry,” a second person tweeted.
Another sympathetically admitted that she has been asked about having children since she was 18.
The fourth user noted that a 22-year-old is indeed Generation X, but despite that, not everyone is obligated to have children.
