Your generalizations may be apt for some Gen Xers, but not me and mine...we hatched the WTO protests, the Battle of Seattle. In my high school *everyone* was "bi" and Rocky Horror Picture Show was our favorite thing. Gen X actually set the course for the zeitgeist of its following generations. It was full of subculture, at least it was where I lived in the Pacific NorthWest. Gen X is divided, that is certainly true. We were in the cultural minority, but I'm not sure why you need to erase us. Our counter-culture movement and protest was as real and any other generations.' I receommend taking a deeper dive into your own cohort. It's possible to be both critical and celebratory about the attributes of every generation, just takes a little nuance.
