There’s this cute kid I follow on Instagram who keeps on talking about the new HBO Max show ‘Genera+ion.’ I have been trying very hard to ignore the show but here I am, watching the first three episodes of it. I mean, kids nowadays annoy me, so why should I watch this show, about Gen Z kids and their issues? But, the + in the title (in place of the letter T) is supposed to represent the plus sign in LGBTQ+ so the kids in this show are all sexually fluid, which means anything goes. Look, I will be the first to tell you all these new gender identity business so I might as well watch the show to eductae myself, right?
Sure. I have to say, though, that I found the show…interesting. Kids nowadays really do care about sexual identity, and we get a gamut of them here. We haev Chester, who is gay, somewhat stereotypical but really not – he is kind of femme but is a major athlete. We have a bunch of lesbians, bisexuals, well, you name it. I don’t think there’s a trans, though, which I thought was weird, since they are supposed to be including everyone,
At times, I feel like I am too old for this show – these kids are acting immature, but then I realize they are kids so how are they supposed to act? All their issues are magnified a million times, of course, because that’s what kids do. But I always find youth interesting, and it’s always refreshing to see where their mind is nowadays.
