Braids and Spitting

These two fellas I saw the other day represent another strange branch of the gen y male species.

What the bloke on the left is saying is word for word what I heard. That's the thing with this particular gen y male- even though he is very focused on his hair style (in this case a bizarre, frizzy ginger mullet shaved off at the sides), in order to discuss it with his mate, he needs to swear enough to over-ride the inherently feminine subject matter.

Other attributes include-

-wearing singlets in the dead of winter
-wearing footy shorts or tracksuits
-not wearing deodorant
-not treating acne
-not shaving bum fluff
-swearing as much as possible
-all manner of bad mullets
-always having legs open at obtuse angles when sitting
-not looking at each other when talking
-spitting after each sentence
-playing rap music on mobile phones, and trying hard to rap along, but only really nailing the swear words
-taking up seven double seats on a train when there are only three of them
-frowning.

What you are describing sounds to me more like Gen Z not Gen Y. Gen Z's are born from around 1990 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_Z

I love your social commentary on Gen Ys or Gen Zs - whatever Letter they go by you have them described exaclty right!
