Slang, Trends, and Other Confusing Things: A Boomer’s Guide to Gen Z



I’m gonna use this entry to explain some dumb shit that the TikTok generation (mostly Gen Z and young millennials) have created.

Suggest shit in the comment and I’ll edit this entry explaining it for you.


I guess I’ll start of with “boomer”. Boomer is hardly used in the literal sense. If someone calls you a boomer, it means that you’re old or you act old. 


“How do I works these damn cellphones?” 

“Everyone knows how to work a cellphone. You’re such a boomer”.


My personal favorite: [enter word/phrase here]. The sparkle emojis are used to indicate sarcasm. They can be used genuinely, and it’s very easy to tell whether the user is being sarcastic or genuine.

Ex: “Don’t you just love standing in the rain for five hours because your date forgot to pick you up from the bus stop?”

Ex: “That comeback was hilarious.


👉👈 is the shy pose. It’s used to indicate that the user is timid. It it typically used in a flirtatious sense by girls. It is also commonly accompanied by 🥺.

Ex: I would talk to that guy, but 👉👈.


No❤️ is an alt tiktok thing that straight tiktok uses incorrectly. It’s a condescending, passive aggressive way of saying no. It’s like saying “no, but okay”. The same thing goes for yes❤️

Ex: “Don’t you just love it when guys don’t use deodorant?”

”Honey, no❤️“. 

Ex: “Am I the only one that likes making fun of the less fortunate?”



A bruh girl is a tomboy. I don’t think I have to give an example for this one. Old people know what a tomboy is, right?


Shitting on Nickelback is a trend enjoyed by Millennials and Gen Z alike. The joke is that most people don’t even know why they’re not supposed to like Nickelback, and they just go along with it to be cool.

You know the weird Gen Z slang, right?

You’re not that old.
