Baby boomers, often shortened to boomers, are the demographic cohort following the Silent Generation and preceding Generation X. The generation is often defined as people born from 1946 to 1964, during the post-World War II baby boom. The term is also used outside the United States, but the dates, the demographic context, and the cultural identifiers may vary. OK boomer” or “okay boomer” is a catchphrase and internet meme often used by millennials and Gen Z to dismiss or mock attitudes typically associated with baby boomers.
