A cats, lesbians, and sweets phase sounds way better than a blue phase.

Twenty-seven-year-old Omaha, Nebraska, resident Erin Duffy has never had — or even wanted — a credit card.

"I’ve been able to get along without it," she says, attributing the choice to ambivalence and a wariness of plastic her parents fostered in her during her formative years. "I’ve liked being able to pay for things as I go, not having to worry about missing a bill."

Duffy’s decision to live without credit cards is more common than you may think. A whopping 63 percent of millennials (ages 18 to 29) don’t have a credit card, according to a survey commissioned by Bankrate and compiled by Princeton Survey Research Associates International.

Comparatively, only 35 percent of adults 30 and over don’t have credit cards.

There are, admittedly, external factors influencing the statistics. An April 2014 Gallup poll found Americans’ reliance on credit cards, in general, has declined steadily since the Great Recession. Moreover, the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009, or CARD Act, made it harder for anyone under 21 to get a credit card.

There’s also a more straightforward reason why a majority of millennials aren’t carrying the payment method: Many, like Duffy, just don’t want credit cards.

"I don’t really feel like there’s a need for one in the way I live my life," says Melissa Pileiro, a 24-year-old resident of Vineland, New Jersey. "The idea with a credit card is you’re essentially putting money down that you don’t have."

Like many members of her demographic, Pileiro is perfectly content with her debit card, a payment method whose existence has eaten into the credit card’s market share.

Millennials “grew up in a world where the economy was tanking,” says David Pommerehn, senior counsel with the Consumer Bankers Association. “There was great concern about jobs and debts and paying off bills.”

At the same time, college costs — and subsequently student loans — have ballooned. According to the Project for Student Debt, student debt increased an average of 6 percent each year from 2008 to 2012, with college graduates from 2012 having an average student loan debt of $29,400.

63% of milennials dont have credit cards in large part because they don’t like the idea of spending money that they don’t have and yet the media continues to portray us as irresponsible.

I wonder why… Sarcastic face.

well dollskill was just taken off my list of all time favorite stores….

Sadly, this IS the norm culture. This isn’t edgy at all. You see this everywhere. Dollskill, don’t act like you’re some kind of special rebel when you’re literally upholding age-old white power structures.

Nearly every single ad Apple showed in its iPhone 6 and Apple Watch launch today was littered with black people. 

But only 7% of staff at Apple are black. 

So it’s okay to use black people to sell your shitty product but not follow that up by actually employing black people to work at your damn company? 

Hypocrites. 

Holy fuck, do you want representation in media or not? Lmfao

Lol these people will bitch about anything

It must suck having such a feeling of inferiority than you walk around constantly seeing everything in the world as an attack on you.

WOOF WOOF WOOF!

…this isn’t people ‘bitching.’ these are legitimate concerns and problems. the fact that only SEVEN PERCENT of their staff (who are highly paid, and hold high prestige positions in an ever-expanding industry, btws) are black, is an issue. (like 55-60% of the world is black, and 14% of the united states, where apple is based, is black)

Yay apple for showing diversity in their media. But that is an image they are paying to create. They are systematically brainwashing people to believe that the company is more diverse than it actually is. Yay apple for showing black people in ads. Now why don’t you actually fucking hire them? It’s not like qualified black people don’t exist. They’re just ‘not employable’ to apple. 

'blackness' is 'trendy.' twerking, butts, hip hop, our clothing, music, etc., is so 'trendy' that apple is seeing it as an opportunity for their white buyers to feel even better about buying that new optic macbook or that 8th iphone. apple doesn't give a FUCK about black people. they care about capitalizing on the trend. they've heard that black is the new black and guess what? They're cashing in.
