A quick definition of generic term:

A child is a young person who is under the age of majority. This can include babies, boys, girls, sons, daughters, and fetuses. There are different types of children, such as natural children who are born to their parents, adopted children who become the son or daughter of a parent or parents through legal adoption, and stepchildren who are the child of one's spouse from a previous marriage. Children can also be classified based on their circumstances, such as abused children who have been subjected to physical or mental harm, neglected children who lack proper parental care or control, and special-needs children who have medical problems or physical or emotional handicaps.

A more thorough explanation:

A generic term is a term that refers to a group or category of things rather than a specific thing. For example, "fruit" is a generic term that refers to a category of foods that includes apples, oranges, bananas, and many others.


  • Generic Name: A name that is used to refer to a drug or medication that is not protected by a trademark. For example, "ibuprofen" is a generic name for a pain reliever that is sold under many different brand names.
  • Genetic Child: A child who is biologically related to their parents. This is in contrast to an adopted child, who is legally made a part of a family through the process of adoption.
  • Illegitimate Child: A child who is born to parents who are not married. In the past, illegitimate children had fewer legal rights than legitimate children, but this is no longer the case in most places.

These examples illustrate the definition of a generic term because they all refer to categories of things rather than specific things. "Generic Name" refers to a category of drug names, "Genetic Child" refers to a category of children who are biologically related to their parents, and "Illegitimate Child" refers to a category of children who are born to unmarried parents.

like it's crazy
i've heard great things about UVA! I visited upenn and hated it so much / felt so uncomfy there and the starbucks by campus got robbed while i was there waiting for my tour to start lol
@OptimisticOutlier That sounds terrible, I'm sorry you had to experience that lol. Can I ask what made you feel uncomfortable? Like the sketchy vibes of the city or like the camp\us itself etc.?
penn is in a nice area
right next to drexel
it was campus itself, honestly i can't explain what it actually is. I felt the same way when I was touring schools for undergrad, pretty much pulled up to upenn and told my mom i knew i didn't like it and didn't need to take the tour lol
would argue with the nice area piece lol i think all of philly is kinda scary, someone pulled a gun on my team while we were down for a football game at upenn and walking around at night
but that said, i'm pretty happy i moved to pa after school and i know lots of people love upenn!
dear god is that sketchy
