I see ‘snowflake’ thrown around all the time on the internet. It’s mostly said whenever people;
All the things I’ve stated above a perfectly acceptable things to do. But people are called snowflake for these reasons because the insulter wants to invalidate and ridicule whatever the person is doing. Of course lots of insults do this but ‘snowflake’ gets on my nerves. Older generations use this insult regularly to describe younger ones, mostly for reasons 3 or 4. We’re the snowflake generation because we call people out for saying offensive things, becoming activist for important issues.
Snowflake used to mean someone who is self-centred and fragile. Now it means people who care. People will just say it randomly to try and win an argument and it’s pointless.
How the hell does laughing at Colbert make me a "cuck". Why is my dad a "snow flake" for being disabled and needing insurance after working all his life. How come people who downvote alt-right and obvious racists are "SJW"s. I made a post asking why Seth Meyers made fun of Eric Trump, and just saying that I found him and Colbert funny even though I'm slightly more right leaning than left makes me a "libtard" and... somehow a feminist? (I'm actually more of an egalitarian humanist than a femanist... Explaining that to people resulted in people thinking I'm a Bernie Sanders supporter...or something a communist).

A lot of people really tried to like...write 20 paragraph essays on how I'm wrong using horrible logic... And if somehow I tell them something a new station said many times they said (in different wording) "oh I don't own a TV so I'm not going to answer that so you're wrong".
Is this because of Russian bots? Like this can't all be trolls. Are they like...serious?
I think those snowflakes made from Hangul are absolutely beautiful! I was just curious if anyone knows what they mean or how they were created? I've been able to find information on the logo and its creation but not those. Thanks for any help!
"Hey there." Snow called to her neighbour, trying to sound friendly. It was her first experience, and she was terrified.
Her neighbour glanced at her disinterestedly. From what Snow could see, he had the looks of a wizened old snowflake, perhaps having gone through this countless of times. "Hey," he said simply, clearly not in the mood to talk.
Snow was unfazed. "My name is Snow. What's yours?"
"Oh, that's a really cool name! Together we would make snowflake!" Snow giggled at her own joke. Flake, on the other hand, only let out a grunt.
Snow inched closer to Flake. "Say, you seemed to have done this a lot of times before. Can you tell me what are we supposed to do anyway?"
"Just let yourself fall I guess, there's really nothing much to it."
"Really? That sounds awfully boring. I mean is that all we're supposed to do? Do you think there's a larger meaning to everything?"
Flake tried to push himself away from Snow. "No, there isn't, and it's best to if you accept the fact early. The sad fact is that life is pretty pointless anyway."
"Aww, really? But Uncle Wind told me that we have our own purpose in life. And that the fall to the bottom is not without meaning."
"Pfft, that's what he tells you." Flake peered down below him, wondering how long more before he hits the ground. The conversation was beginning to annoy him.
Flake turned and shot a glare towards snow. "Look, sorry to burst your bubble but our life has no meaning. We fall from the sky, reach the ground, and repeat the entire cycle again. Every snowflake goes through that. There is no meaning. You just have to accept it."
He turned his attention back to the fast approaching ground. There was a moment of silence between them, each caught in their own thoughts.
Snow eventually mustered the courage to reply. "I... I refuse to believe that. I believe that there's more to our existence than just merely repeating a meaningless routine."
Another period of silence as both Snow and Flake continued to drift downwards. The outlines of the houses and trees were beginning to come into focus. Several children began to exit the houses now, their faces excitedly focused upwards.
"It's snowing, it's snowing!" Snow heard several of them exclaimed.
"Yay, I love the snow! It makes me happy!" the youngest of them declared.
And it was then when Snow smiled, falling into the palm of one of the children, together with Flake. She heard him groan, but it no longe... keep reading on reddit ➡
