DRINKING FROM THE GARDEN HOSE & EATING LEAD PAINT DOESN'T MAKE YOU SUPERIOR TO ANY GENERATION!

When I started this new blog, I thought I was going to stay away from the controversial opinion post that I did on the original Desdinova blog. However, I feel a need to direct some criticism at my generation that I had hoped we would not be apart of like previous generations.
I have read several recent articles in radio and music trades that say that the "generation gap" no longer exist among parents and their children (at least with music). Teenagers are downloading music from the 40s - the 90s, while some of the parents are listening to Lady Gaga, the Black Eyed Peas and Nickleback.
Sadly, there are some people of my generation that didn't get the memo. These people seem to be repeating the mistake made by our parents, only they are doing it on Facebook and through e-mail. They forward it in an over circulated e-mail or they post cut and paste the status on Facebook.
These are usually a laundry list of how the younger generation has it better than we did. Like the "generation gap" propaganda of the previous generation, all of this makes the younger generation inferior to the writer's generation. The tone is overall hateful and disrespectful toward young people.
For some reason, the people who write these e-mails and Facebook post act like they are superior to the current generation because they cannot use modern technology. 

Another thing I notice with these e-mails and Facebook post is the glorification of child abuse. It makes beating children a positive.
These e-mails and Facebook post also seem to make out that ingesting harmful chemicals make a person superior to the younger generation. They seem to glory in eating lead paint and drinking from a garden hose. That seems to be the big one. Most of these act like drinking from a garden hose makes their generation superior to those who drink bottled water. 
What bothers me about this stuff is that my generation is falling into the same trap as a our parents. I would hope that people of my generation didn't ever utter the words "When I was your age." Sadly, we are sending it all over the Internet and Facebook.
I HATE ADULTS AND THIS KIND OF STUFF MAKES ME EMBARRASSED TO BE ONE!!!
Of course, an opinion, like this one, is why I'm considered the Super Villain of the Ozarks!!! Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
