Generation Z is an enigma to me. They’re the most diverse generation we’ve ever had, and they’re on track to be the most educated as well:
Naturally, this means they are more left-leaning than previous generations, and they are also more likely to look to the government to solve problems as opposed to businesses and individuals:
They’re smart, they care, they’re tech-savvy. They are the future.
But they are also responsible for this new ridiculous “cancel culture” we find ourselves in where one cannot fart without offending someone. Many of their causes are admirable, but many probably have Anthony Scalia spinning in his urn right now – Harry Potter, Dr. Seuss, Mr. Potato Head. The list goes on.
They even tried to go after Eminem…LOL!
It’s unbelievable. Bill Maher (avid liberal) even compared it to the Soviet regimes in his latest episode of Real Time. That’s when you know it’s gone too far.
I swear to God, I don’t want to talk about cancel culture and this nonsense every week, but I just think people understand how this is a tsunami and how fast the goalposts change almost on a weekly basis.
Now I fear Generation Z has found their next cancel culture target: sex.
Well, maybe not explicitly. They haven’t exactly made an announcement cancelling it, per se, but their actions certainly indicate that they are “woke” to it. An article published last month found that 1 in 3 males (18-24 years) reported no sexual activity in the last year.*
“But Dunning, we’ve been in lockdown for the past year, it’s no wonder so few young people are doing the sex.”
The survey was conducted in 2018, so the numbers are pre-COVID.
Another study found that sexual inactivity during 2016-2018 among men aged 18-24 was 31%.
That number in 2000-2002: 19%
The blue balls outweigh the blue beans, but the decline in sex is real:
One article attributes this decline to “delayed adulthood.” Basically, what they’re saying is kids are taking longer these days to progress to adulthood and things like getting a job, getting married, having kids, etc.
It’s part of an overall trend toward less risky behavior since 1990, including not only sex but alcohol use, risky driving, and criminal activity.

I call it “The Pussification of America” and it needs to be stopped!
So to all you Gen Z’ers out there: put down your pickets, pick up some condoms and get to fuckin’!
