Okay, hold up. High school juniors and seniors are the oldest core zoomers. Early Z is 1997-01, Core is 2002-06/07, and Late is 2006/07-12. Are you saying generation z only spans nine years?Fixed that for you.
Gen Z is actually a very fragmented generation culturally and politically, with the Early Zoomers (1997-2000) being largely turbo-woke gender-sped socialists like the Late Millennials who came directly before them while the Core Zoomers (who are high school juniors and seniors at their youngest and are just now entering adulthood for the most part) tend to be either moderately liberal (AKA centrist) or more likely downright apolitical as a whole (similar to Gen X) although the younger end of the Core Zoomers are trending slightly rightward (I'd imagine those born in 2002-2003 and are preparing to graduate have probably been "redpilled" by the shitshow of a year that is 2020)
The Late Zoomers are largely middle schoolers and high school underclassmen who actually are trending rightward as a whole.
A lot of people think Gen Z is a left-wing generation entirely because of the Early Zoomers who were born in the late 90's, and they overlap heavily with the Late Millennials who tend to trend far to the left, even when compared to other Millennials. The main reason is because they largely had a similar childhood as their Late Millennial siblings and compatriots, and trended far left for largely the same reasons as the Millennials did.
I'm a Late Millennial (born in the early 90's) and I've noticed the Early Zoomers are just more woke and pretentious versions of Late Millennials, but the Core Zoomers I've known IRL and online are nothing like the Early Zoomers and Late Millennials.
@-4ZURE- is actually pretty spot-on in this assessment and can back up a lot of this, and would probably know more about it than even I do.
Like I said, Gen Z is the most culturally fragmented of the generations currently alive today
As I said before, I was born in late 1999. I've noticed that there's a very gradual shift from center-left to centrist/apolitical over 1997-01, but as soon as it hits 2002 the shift is greatly accelerated.
If someone tries bringing up politics in a general group of people my age, they'd usually get told to shut up and that nobody cares. Talking about politics in general seems way more socially acceptable for those born 2002 onwards.
