Kate Harding on Gen Jones:
While personally part of Gen X, Kate has relatives and friends who are part of Generation Jones, which is part of what has prompted public musings by Kate about Gen Jones. Kate wrote here in August 2020 that “My two oldest sibs were born in ‘60 and ‘61, and there’s something to “Generation Jones” IMO. They’re definitely neither Boomer nor X.” Kate wrote here in May 2021 that “I am amenable to people from that microgeneration identifying as “Generation Jones,” which overlaps Boomer and X. But I stand firm on the Coupland line, demographers be hanged!”
