"Feminist Next Door" argues that millennials are not a homogeneous group and pollsters should act accordingly. Agreed. Her argument be far more credible if she didn't do to those of the 'boomer' generation that she's accusing pollsters do to the millennial generation. The major difference? Society, not just pollsters, tends to believe all in the 'boomer' generation are homogeneous. We're not either. Marc, as an elected representative, I would hope you understand the demographics of your constituents better than the re-posting of this comment would imply.
Here is something I posted on Medium.com a few years ago: "...as a so-called 'boomer' I do take exception to the suggestion that things were given to me 'near-free'. "I worked at a dangerous and debilitating factory job where I cleared $107 a week. My first house may have cost what seems like nothing by today’s standard, but that price represented almost five years wages and the mortgage was 13%. (The monthly payments were $350, so do the math. We had to rent out part of the house to make ends meet). I was lucky. Rates went as high as 20% for mortgages for a while. Inflation was at double-digit levels, resulting in some grocery items doubling in price in a week. The post-WWII 'boom' was a boom for business and commerce. People were still exploited. Things were not just handed to them. "People of all generations want the same things: meaningful employment, financial security, and a chance to find fulfilment in life. People of all generations have worked and continue to work hard to achieve those goals. While not rich by any measure, my wife and I have worked hard over the course of half a century for the things we do have. We paid for our pensions and continue to pay taxes, so no, we are not being supported by anyone. Lumping people into conflicting categories by age is the same divisive game of left vs right and rich vs poor that is being played out in politics world-wide."

Last night wonderful and busy night! Standing room only to hear this story about a transgender boy and how he saved and continued to save so many lives. Also, to learn more about our local transgender advocacy community and about life saving organ donation services.
Laughs and tears and a beautiful night in the County.
Thanks Rick, Carrie, Finn, Erica Lauren, Sabrina, Melyssa, the Comminity Legal Clinic, Green Heron Books, Stillwaters Plate and Pour and so many more!

I had a resident of your ward message me to say how awesome you are 😊
What are the details for where I can hear/see this?
From today’s childcare chat at the Wincey Mills with Alvin Tedjo. Great to talk with local people about progressive politics. Watch out for Alvin - he’s got a lot of upside and a political style a lot of folks could get behind. ... See MoreSee Less
