    That term has been used since before Trump was even a candidate. I think it started when some Yale students were complaining about not having a safe space or something.  In true MAGA fashion, it devolved into just another term for liberals. And also in true MAGA fashion, it’s almost always a projection from people who melt down at kneeling during the anthem, somehow take it personally when our great president is criticized, and generally find it to be different when is they who are offended.

    my neighbor was proudly flying a trump 2020 flag on his house from early october through election day. on saturday when biden was declared the winner he tacked an american flag upside down on the front of his house. it has been there every day since. i drive by and think to myself, "now THAT is a snowflake."

    Yeah I believe David Clarke started that term up here in Wisconsin.  So glad that douche bag is no longer the sheriff in my district.

    So what's better or worse, a snowflake or a cold hearted son of a bitch?  Good question, eh?

    Don't most of us run the gamut to some degree?  Yes, I do.

    So let me ask y'all this:
    Have you ever been listening to music and found yourself in tears simply because of the sheer brilliance of what you are listening to?  I have.  Am I a snowflake?

    And (less often for me, but in the same vein), while reading something?  Last night, I was reading Wendell Berry's book, Hannah Coulter.  I honestly think Wendell Berry is America's greatest living author and I have been told by other readers more astute than myself that they believe the same.  I was reading this passage that was so beautifully and perfectly written, I was moved to tears.  And it wasn't because it was a sad part of the book, it was because I was overwhelmed by how beautifully and perfectly this passage- and I would say the whole work- is written.  Does that make me a snowflake?

    OK, fine.

    Another example.  My father was an Aviation Machinist's Mate in WWII.  When he was very old, he used to tell me stories about being in the Solomon Islands.  The stories were not sad, just old, old memories that sometimes brought him to tears.  Pop was a tough old son of a bitch, but some memories simply moved him to tears.  Was he a snowflake?

    If I am a snowflake (I'm not directing this at anyone, just saying in general), then I am proud to be one.  Label me whatever the fuck you want to.  I'm happy with who I am.

    Good for you, man,  right on!

    I have to say, I really hate labels.  We're all different and we're all something and name calling never changed anyone.

    And yet, labels are used here every single day. Go figure! It seems to make things easier for some. 

    When I use the term snowflake, I’m not talking about emotion over art, etc. I see it as whining over inconsequential shit and playing the victim card. 

    Big difference.

    Interesting, but OK, I see what you're getting at.  I guess I just don't know people who do that.  Or maybe I accept the fact that we all have differing perspective and what might seem inconsequential to me is a big deal to someone else.  For example, a helicopter flying overhead  is inconsequential to me, but to my neighbor who has PTSD from Vietnam, it is fucking hell.

    I’m not such an asshole to consider PTSD as unimportant. C’mon now. I’m talking about boo-hooing about nonsense like so-and-so said something mean to me, I’m entitled to this, you’re X because you said a word that triggers me. Sometimes people need to choose their battles and yes, toughen up a bit.

    Life isn’t a cakewalk all the time.

    I don’t think of a snowflake as someone that’s simply “overly” sensitive. More people that look for reasons to be offended and outright make up reasons or a willful ignorance about that which offends them. 

    Everyone has a different life experience that informs their attitudes and while I try not to judge,  the transparency and hypocrisy people display can be maddening. 

    I’m not disregarding that everyone has their own hang ups as far as this goes but keeping an open mind and heart is paramount to offsetting it as much as possible.
  • I always thought a snowflake was someone who basically wanted rules made for them so they didn't have to deal with any pressure?

    Exactly.
    I've had people tell me, "Don't get you panties in a knot."  Well, the truth is, I've never worn panties.  I did wear one of my wife's dresses once though.  Now that might have been cause to call me a snowflake.  Or just plain ugly
