The Wall Street Journal is walking back its use of word ‘millennial.’
“Millennial,” like “fake news,” started out as a useful term with a descriptive purpose but became, essentially, a slur. It now lands loaded, as an archetype. People who make a living choosing the clearest words with the most descriptive meanings would be wise to avoid it.

@joelcifer, reacting to the announcement in The Wall Street Journal’s style blog that the paper will cut back on its use of the term “millennial,” in an effort to be more specific and not to alienate part of its readership base. In the blog, WSJ encouraged its writers to “resist the temptation to use stereotypes [or] apply a blanket label.”
You know what? I like the term Millenial. Apparently, I am killing the golf industry, paper napkins, and the NFL. Let that name strike fear into the hearts of those who are trying to limit our influence on the world we inhabit and will soon run, IE the Trump Boomers.

Chance eviscerates guy named Joey on Twitter.
Stop trying to make people hug you Joey. No one wants your hugs or hyperbolic racist comparisons or unbuttoned top button. Keep it all to yourself, Joey.
— Chance The Rapper (@chancetherapper) December 5, 2017
@chancetherapper, in a takedown of Twitter user @joeynemati. Chance shared an article saying it may be best for men to avoid hugging women, and @joeynemati asked if “cutting off all human contact” wasn’t “Sharia law,” leading Chance to call him out.
So we're cutting off all human contact between the sexes now? Isn't that Sharia law?
