The descriptive term “snowflake” is mostly used against ultra-sensitive progressive leftists from the participation trophy culture who constantly whine if anyone or anything upsets the alternative universe they attempt to live in.
Snowflakes are seen most frequently on America’s college campuses, which have been fundamentally transformed into overpriced institutions of communist brainwashing and indoctrination. The term is so spot on because they often experience meltdowns at the drop of the hat, much like a warm sun hitting a real snowflake.
Snowflakes often are biology-deniers, “self-identifying” as different people than their biology and DNA dictates, living lives of delusion to protect their fragile politically correct existence from the real truth.
They deserve ridicule.
Yet, in an embarrassing segment on CBS Sunday Morning on July 9, 2017, contributor Faith Salie, who admits to being a snowflake herself, spent two-and-a-half minutes of precious airtime dedicated to encouraging viewers to cease and desist from calling people snowflakes, which tells me that calling the whiny brats “snowflakes” must really be triggering the so easily triggered.
