17. I'm an older Gen Xer

I find I have a very hard time relating to most men in my parents' generation (I'm a woman). The white men born in the 30s came of age in the 50s and they seem to have a sense of entitlement and a lot of them are male chauvinists, with the women of that generation catering to the "please the male" norm (my mom and her boyfriend fit these stereotypes). It's a gross generalization, yeah, but still.... I find men born in the 40s tend to be a lot cooler and easier to relate to. Just my broad impressions -- exceptions abound I'm sure.
