If You Are 32 Or Younger, You Have Something We've Not Seen In This Country At All. Ready?

America has never seen a voting bloc this large. Get ready to change the world, y'all. It's about time you were in charge.

If You Are 32 Or Younger, You Have Something We've Not Seen In This Country At All. Ready?

Millennials are all the people who were born between 1982 and 2002.

12,000 Americans turn 18 every day.

The millennial generation is the largest in our country's history — bigger than even the baby boomers.

The millennial generation is also the most diverse — 43% are people of color, and 66,000 American Latinos turn 18 every month.

90% of American youth are online, with over 60% connected to the Internet while away from home.

Millennials have the potential to be the largest voting bloc in our country but are voting at low rates, with an estimated 30 million young people staying home in 2012.

WTF?! You mean we literally have the power to change the world but we are not doing it?

We have the power to change every. single. thing. about this country and all we have to do is vote for people who represent us.

Jimmy Fallon #MyFamilyIsWeird.

It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is when we get the pleasure of spending way more time than we’re used to with our families. For those of us who’ve moved away from our immediate families, the holidays are a great time to reacquaint ourselves with old traditions and to realize that some of them may be a little strange.

Every family seems to have its own brand of weirdness. In fact, I wouldn’t trust anyone who says that their family is completely normal.

On November 18, “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon gave everyone a reason to celebrate their unique families by asking them to share their favorite stories under #MyFamilyIsWeird. The responses were everything from odd holiday traditions to family members that may have a screw (or two!) loose.

Here are 17 of the funniest responses.

Fifty years ago, when Paul McCartney announced he had left the Beatles, the news dashed the hopes of millions of fans, while fueling false reunion rumors that persisted well into the new decade.

In a press release on April 10, 1970 for his first solo album, "McCartney," he leaked his intention to leave. In doing so, he shocked his three bandmates.

The Beatles had symbolized the great communal spirit of the era. How could they possibly come apart?

Cayce LaCorte explains why virginity doesn't exist.

The concept of virginity is a very loaded issue in American culture. If a woman loses hers when she's too young she can be slut-shamed. If a man remains a virgin for too long, he can be bullied for not being manly enough.

There is also a whole slew of religious mind games associated with virginity that can give people some serious psychological problems associated with sex.

Losing one's virginity has also been blown up way beyond proportion. It's often believed that it's a magical experience—it's usually not. Or that after having sex for the first time people can really start to enjoy living life—not the case.

What if we just dropped all of the stigmas surrounding virginity and instead, replaced them with healthy attitudes toward sex and relationships?

Writer Cayce LaCorte is going viral on TikTok for the simple way she's taught her five daughters to think about virginity. They don't have to. LaCorte shared her parenting ideas on TikTok in response to mom-influencer Nevada Shareef's question: "Name something about the way you raised your kids that people think is weird but you think is healthy."
