Because it is this generation in which the virus currently known as COVID-19 has been discovered and categorized, it should be this generation that has a say in deriving a name for it. The world feels the weight of this outbreak and some humor would undoubtedly be appreciated by plenty of people. Based on the current age demographics that have been most severely affected, it is clear that the virus is a threat primarily to older people. The term Boomer, derived from the name of the generation of people born between 1944 and 1964, is a playful nudge at those same older people in the modern age. This petition does not aim to insult or offend anyone through the use of this word, but as stated previously, offer a humorous, fitting, and timely name for this global pandemic. While no relationship is perfect, at the end of the day, we all love our parents, grandparents and the wisdom we receive from generations past to some degree. They are, after all, fellow human beings and the reason we're here to speak of them. All this petition seeks to do is lighten the mood by giving COVID-19 a more human and, in a way, affectionately remembering name. If you for any reason disapprove of this name even after reading through this, you and anyone else you know are entirely free to protest it by ignoring it and moving on. Thank you for your time.
