I was born in the late 90s making me Generation Z.
My generation seems to span from young people who just entered adulthood to young kids still in school. My generation is still being formed by today's world. The people of my generation embrace modernity but are arrogant due to us having little understanding of the real world.
In hopes of being able to answer your question about why post-millenials: I think that one of the greatest makers of the generation is that we are still enjoying life at youth. The "younger older-half" is aware of politics but do not bother enough to express themselves publicly probably because our lives are not being much affected by politics directly; many of us do not get direct politcal information but rather through social media; my friend and I often discuss politics and express our political views with our other friends and acquaintances, but never publicly. The oldest of our generation have just taken their step into true adulthood and need to focus their time on matters such as education, work and getting started in life and in their spare time they prefer relaxing and enjoying youth (hanging out, going out with friends etc..).
I can get along with millennials and the mid and older half of the post-millennials (I don't really get along with the younger ones). I have a small overlap with the X generation but nothing significant.
My parents are from Generation X.
I have a question. I've noticed that I am very young compared to some of you and wanted ask how young do users get here / how young are the youngest users here in the community

These generations are arbitrarily defined, and honestly the assumption is bogus. Social changes affect pretty much all of society simultaneously.
Its the sociological counterpart of MBTI tests in psychology - junk people think of as though it were fact.

Before I knew the generation of my dad was called "the Silent Generation", I already had come up with that term myself, it seemed so apt. They're silent. They never caused a ruckus. They're conservatives at heart. These people were born too late to fight in WW2 or to even have conscious memories of it. The hero generation, the veterans of WW2, should've teamed up with the Silents and crushed the Babyboomer insurgency. The Heroes could've given the Silents leadership. I know the generation of my dad fairly well and my conclusion is that leadership is mainly what these fellows lack(ed).
"When a war occurs, when the planes go into the towers in New York, when the helicopter gunships stream over Arabian sands, you suddenly see a slippage in the liberal veritas, and in the materialism, and in some of the ideas which are used to justify these sorts of things. Not much of a slippage, but you suddenly see a slippage… a rending of the veil, a ripping of the veil of illusion between life and death; what life is really about. Is life really about shopping? Is life really about making more and more money? Is life really about bourgeois status when one already has enough to live on? Is life really about eating yourself to death !?" — Jonathan Bowden

I'm generation X, but here is the Greatest Generation.
Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

I'm not really sure whether I'd be "millennial" or "post-millennial". I notice a big cultural difference between people my age and the cohort just maybe a year or two below that I don't see going up, so I'm inclined to think the former.
"Considering your specific duty as a kshatriya, you should know that there is no better engagement for you than fighting on religious principles[...] either you will be killed on the battlefield and attain the heavenly planets, or you will conquer and enjoy the earthly kingdom. Therefore get up and fight with determination. Do thou fight for the sake of fighting, without considering happiness or distress, loss or gain, victory or defeat--and, by so doing, you shall never incur sin."
