The Internet recently exploded into a dazzling burst of controversy with the news that apparently some younguns’ went on the Tiketty-Toks to disrespect their elders by calling us OLD and UNCOOL due to our side parts, skinny jeans, and laughy-cry-face emoji.
Apparently, according to these kids, parting your hair in the middle is THE WAY to look cool and put-together.
LIKE MARCIA FUCKING BRADY.
LIKE THOSE PICS OF YOUR MOM IN HIGH SCHOOL.
Anyways, the Internet responded as the internet does, which means that Millennials and older Xennials also hopped on the Tik Tok to defend themselves, leading to loads of hysterical memes and articles where we proudly proclaimed that the younger generation can have being cool, if we can keep our flattering clothes and hairstyles.
Your move, hoes.
Although we take issue with all of the things they’re attacking (laughingandcryingemoji forever), today we’re gonna specifically take issue with the side part thing, because, hello, HOW DARE YOU.

The young kids on Tik Tok are apparently saying if you part your hair to the side, wear skinny jeans, and use the 😂 emoji you’re old. I’ve never felt more attacked.

4. I mean as far as hair offenses go, our side parts are fairly benign. Let’s not forget the real enemy here.
With the amount of mullet owners I’ve seen still walking this earth, I am not in the least bit concerned that my side part is outdated.

8. Watch these kids lose it over the real faux pas we sported without a fucking care in the world, walking around the CD stores thinking we were hot shit, belly ring out, and just fucking SLATHERED in glitter.
Everyone is talking about side parts and middle parts, but what about zig zag parts? Should we bring those back too because I’ll do it
