Patch Zircher on Gen Jones:
Patch pushes back strongly against the traditional definiton of the Baby Boom Generation which included him. He passionately sees himself as part of Generation Jones, and has repeatedly brought up Gen Jones publicly. In April 2023, Patch wrote: “Pet peeve–being classified as a Boomer. The Baby Boom was a result of soldiers returning from WWII & Korea. I’m a Jones. Generation Jones were children during the sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s and were young adults when HIV/AIDS became a worldwide threat in the 1980s.” and further wrote: “Generation Jones kids watched the Jackson 5 and Fat Albert cartoons on Saturday mornings. That just didn’t exist for Boomers.”
