Generational wars are always breaking out on social media, so consider this one of the relatively lighthearted ones: Last week an angry mom published a profanity-laden attack on “childless” millennials attending Disney World (and presumably Disneyland). And childless millennials — who presumably want to get smashed at “Galaxy’s Edge” — weren’t having it.
In the woman’s post, dropped on Facebook, she took umbrage with any non-family units attending the Happiest Place on Earth. “It pisses me off TO NO END!!!!! when I see CHILDLESS COUPLES WITHOUT AT DISNEY WORLD!!!!,” her typo-ridden rant went. “People without CHILDREN need to be BANNED!!!!! Mothers with children should be allowed to skip ALL THE LINE!!!”
She cited one example of alleged deplorable behavior. “This c*nt in some very SLUTTY shorts was buying a Mickey pretzel and Aiden wanted one but the line was very long so I said later and it broke his poor little heart and he cried,” the woman wrote. “I WANTED TO TAKE THAT F*CKING PRETZEL FROM THAT TRAMP LIKE THANKS B*TCH YOU MADE MY SON CRY!”
She also asserted that Disney World, and presumably Disneyland as well, is for one group of people. “DW is a FAMILY amusement park!” she wrote. “Yet these IMMATURE millennials THROW AWAY THEIR MONEY ON USELESS CRAP!!!!”
The post went viral, and was further disseminated by publications like The New York Post. They published a column agreeing with her, accusing those born between 1981 and 1996 of “self-infantilization,” people “remaining constant 12-year-olds,” who are “fine with sticking to ‘A Whole New World’ rather than exploring a whole new world.”
Well, guess who disagrees? Millennials.
I wish millennials could afford to have kids and go to Disneyworld. Can't have both.

I went to Disney World by myself recently and had way more fun than the exhausted parents who kept fighting, and their crying, angry, tired children. If it’s “weird” to actually have FUN at Disney World, I’m totally ok with being that kind of “weird.” https://t.co/OP0eGXMoi1

that childless millennial disney world thing is hilar bc a large portion of jpn disney's market is exactly that and they cater specifically to them which is why their parks are so successful

Anyone who's ever been to Walt Disney World, or Disneyland, knows that there are people there without kids. And anyone who's been going for a while knows that millennials didn't invent it, nor are they the only ones who do it. https://t.co/MMrJTCo2pI

If I had the money, I would absolutely be going to Disney World to finally be able to see Chaos God Goofy in the flesh. https://t.co/JN15IBMTwg

Seriously tho, who wants to help me organize an Unofficial Childless Millennial Day at Disney? Wear your sluttiest shorts and meet me in the pretzel line, fellow weird adult babies. https://t.co/kDgH0RUbUT

I’m going to make a “childless millennial” shirt and wear it to Disney

Of course, not everyone thought going to a Disney amusement park is a goal worth having.
