You may find that older generations may be confused on some ideologies millennials and generation z have. Modern youth has become more accepting to literally everything from cultures to lifestyles. On Friday, the Today show released a video where they gathered families from conservative communities were asked what they thought about gender fluidity, and by surprise, these communities with “classic” ideologies have become accustomed to the more modern lifestyle that the newer generations have created. Whether is breaking down walls for all races to unite or letting go of gender norms, today in age, everything has become about being your best self and being able to do it without the fear of judgement. Join the Youth Channel this week with special programming about race, ethnicity, and identity.
