This is for old-time posters, and John Xenakis.  I have a distinct recollection of a T4T poster coining the them Homelander for the New Silents shortly after 911.  For some reason I have Susan Brombacher associated with this term in my memory. I was curious about this and did some Google searches for the term.  It is attributed to S&H based on a survey they did in 2005.  Does anyone remember anything about this? If so, perhaps John might have it on his site where he was preserved a number of threads going way back in 2001.

Thanks

Kevin mentioned elsewhere a couple of days ago that Suzanne coined the term and that Neil should give her credit seeing as he is regularly using the name. I will tag you in the conversation.
thanks to google ...

More evidence that we are in a 4T. A new law has just been passed, at least in my state, REQUIRING bicycle helmets for kids. Any child caught riding a bike and not wearing a helmet will be fined $10. To me, this is a prime signal that we are entering the Homelander child era rather than the Millennial child era. Hence, the 4T.

THAT was a sign that state was entering a 4T? So beforehand it was ok for their millies to go round with no helmet? WTF! Here in NZ it has been illegal to be without a helmet ever since i can remember and I was born 1984! Xers here say it was not required for them. I swear American millies are like another species compared to kiwi millies. More evidence kiwi millies were more protected than American millies. Just like it was illegal to leave a child home alone till they were 16.
That's for the quick response. I thought Susan had coined the term in 2001. Susan is a great coiner of phrases. My favorite was right after the 2000 election when she wrote about the "dark looming world of Bush".
