In a way there was a movement. Much of Gen Y does not act like GenX. Maybe it was because most of GenY was raised by GenX’s parents. (Starting in the late 1980s, it was normal for GenX’s kids to have to be raised by their parents.).Given that most of GenX’s kids were fathered by a very small pool of men, one wonders what the results would be from a genetic standpoint. Even herds generally don’t have bottlenecks like we are seeing, despite the stereotypes of herd behavior. Most GenX men didn’t have kids for the same reason that Clinton got 80% of the female vote both times— the women wanted the “bad boy,” despite his evil. With that attitude, most GenX men simply couldn’t compete. And so you had about 10% to 20% of men who had 5, 10, sometimes 20, or even 50 or more kids. (Which explains why the courts started granting women child support from men who were not the fathers of their kids about a decade ago. Imagine trying to collect from a man who has 20 kids by fifteen women.).The genetic ramifications of that should be interesting to say the least.
