The Brief: A riff on Ok Boomer, Ok Millennial is a possible dismissal for someone born between 1981 and 1996.
Online generational warfare is contentious. Zoomers are saying Ok Boomer to Baby Boomers, some of whom have deemed the term a slur. Boomers have long been calling Gen Z-ers and Millennials snowflakes. Even Gen X has been renamed The Karen Generation by Gen Z. Ok Trumper is a new variation of Ok Boomer, with a more specifically political connotation.
As referenced in a Reddit post, Ok Millennial is now being used as well. It has become both a serious response to Ok Boomer and a playful way for Millennials to drag themselves.

Everytime someone says something completely asinine and ignorant, especially if it’s laced with entitlement and faux tolerance, let’s just say “Ok Millennial.”
The “Ok Boomer” condescension is getting old.

"Ok boomer" should be joined by its corollary, "Ok millennial." Millennials have extremely low voter turnout and should 100% be ashamed of this, among other things.
