As every generation hits the bracket of old age, their feats and failures are inevitably evaluated. In fifty years, millennials will be scrutinized as future generations look back to see what went wrong.

Here are ten things that members of an online forum believe millennials will be blamed for in half a century. Do you agree?

1. Internet Families: Subscription for Cuteness

With YouTube and TikTok on the rise, families have been videotaping their little ones and putting them online. One person expects a rampage of stolen identities. You are going against basic ethics by disclosing information about a child who can’t even speak. An additional, more alarming apprehension concerns the possibility of predators having access to such content.

2. Being Robophobes

A user uses this term to express their disapproval of children forming platonic or romantic relationships with AI in the future. There is much concern about how they will navigate such a situation if their own kids were to get involved in something like the virtual romance showcased in Her. “No, I don’t respect your relationship with an AI bot. I got nothing against robots; I don’t want my daughter marrying one!” says one.

3. Colorless Open-Concept Houses

One person speculates the popularizing of open-concept houses, except all the colors are on the gray and beige spectrum. Such boring colors in interior design are likely to become the norm in addition to vessel sinks and old-fashioned wood paneling. Not many are fond of the gold faucets making a comeback.

4. Not Retiring Already

Aging and retirement are hot topics for any generation entering old age. Such is the case for millennials as well, who will be blamed for staying in the workforce for too long, depriving newer generations of jobs. To make things worse, millennials most likely won’t retire thanks to political acts of doing away with social security. One pessimist user remarks, “But hopefully enough of us will perish in the water wars that will free up some jobs.”

5. I Know What You Did Last Summer (On Instagram)

As more and more laws are passed to police online content, the collapse of digital privacy is anticipated by many. Anti-hate speech laws seem to guise for constant surveillance, one member argues. However, many say this unfortunate process started long before the millennials could do anything about it.

6. Continued Existential Crisis

Here’s a more philosophical take on the subject. As generations progress, the pressure of finding the ultimate truth and meaning of existence increases. Hence, one person thinks millennials will be blamed for not solving the existential problems facing humanity, the same way as every generation before them and every generation after them. “It’s beautiful, in a way. The circle of life.”

7. Watching It All Go Down

Many regret that while the steps leading to climate change started long before the millennials, they will be the generation to be blamed the most. This is because consumerism has peaked like never before, and millennials, with all their knowledge about it, would fail to be agents of change.

8. Censored Art

Building on the point of digital privacy, many think millennials will be responsible for restricted free speech, which is not limited to just conversations but all forms of ideas. This will impact art as it will become “predictable and boring” due to conformity to new norms, argues a member.

9. Odd Child-Rearing Practices

From not having enough children to not appropriately raising the ones they have, many are apprehensive about the millennial practice of child-rearing. Some think that the children will grow up neglected since their parents were glued to their phones, while others believe millennials would socialize their kids to become overly sensitive and entitled.

10. Everlasting Economic Challenges

No one is a stranger to millennials’ economic challenges, from high student debt to job instability and difficulty accessing affordable housing. Hence, millennials will be blamed for not adequately resolving these issues during their time, making them persist for future generations.
