Keep hearing about Millinilians vs Baby Boomers. One group either consider a Whiny SJW group..or a new group that can propell ups in a new great age. The other consider the people who faught for Civil rights and was for protest..or The people who runin the country

But rarely hear about Generation X in the coversation. They just skipped over. Why is that?  I mean were a big deal at a time. was it just not a lot happening in their generation or its a transition thing. Was the sometimes Apathetic nature of them made people ignore them

hell havent heard people even identify themselves as Gen X.  since there seem to be some overlap since some have Generation X ending at 84 other 80. Could be because there a lot of baby boomers, and lot more millennials who span a lot of years...since some of those guys damm near 40. Gen X actully had a low birth rate

Because Gen X tends not to insert themselves as the center of attention in conversations. It's kind of their thing

Because, they were murdered and feed to millennials to fuel their tear ducts.

Baby Boomers are in control of the world because they are the older generation and Millenials are the youth who have just reached adulthood.  Both have a lot to say about things.  Meanwhile, Gen X is sort of just in the middle.

Also, as Wyntyr pointed out, Gen Xers tend not to draw as much attention to themselves.  They're supposed to be the "slacker generation".  Baby Boomers are known for being kind of uptight and strict while Millenials are known for being whiny and self-centered.  That means, both generations are gonna make a lot of noise.
