  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Generation
It is in this sense, for example, that, during the long-lived patriarchal age, a "generation" is rated as a period of 100 years (Genesis 15:16, compared with Genesis 15:13, and Exodus 12:40), and that, at a later date, it is represented as of only 30 to 40 years.
The word generation is used to mean an indefinite period of time: of time past, as in Deut., xxxii, 7, where we read: "Remember the days of old, think upon every generation", and in Isaias, lviii, 12, etc.; of time future, as in Ps.
Independently of the idea of time, generation is employed to mean a race or class of men as characterized by the same recurring condition or quality.

 Generation X - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Coupland's usage, the "X" of Generation X referred to the namelessness of a generation that was coming into an awareness of its existence as a separate group while at the same time feeling completely dwarfed and culturally overshadowed by the Baby Boomer generation of which it was ostensibly a part.
Generation X has also been described as a generation consisting of those people whose teen years were touched by the 1980s, although many who are considered part of this generation had their teenage years stretching into the 1990s.
Generation X has survived a hurried childhood of divorce, latchkeys, space shuttle explosions, open classrooms, widespread public knowledge of political corruption, inflation and recession, post-Vietnam national malaise, environmental disaster, the Islamic Revolution (in Iran), devil-child movies, and a shift from "G" to "R" ratings (which had little effect outside the United States).

 Definition of Generation X
Generation X is not synonymous with "slacker," but to many people these words have come to mean the same thing.
Generation X should not be viewed as a pejorative term and it's not an inflexible definition.
In reality, a generation is more than a demographic unit, but because television and the media love to group people in target markets, Generation X often appears to be only white middle-class twentysomethings.

The first live-action television continuation of the 1966–1969 series Star Trek, The Next Generation is set nearly a century later and features a new starship and a new crew.

In the novel "Generation X," Douglas Coupland defined Generation X as "a group of people born between 1961 and 1972 typified by a college education, dissatisfaction with career opportunities, and pessimism." (So I guess you can be a baby boomer and a Gen-X'er at the same time.
And then he adds, "Our generation is making the world a smaller place and showing that the best way to make use of our affluence and leisure time is to give back to our families and communities." I don't know what planet he is on, but he should have quit while he was ahead.
Generation X, my generation, grew up lucky to have one parent home when school was out, lucky if one parent showed up for every ballgame, concert, play, etc." Yep; she makes a good point.
