"Snowflakes" have their own illness now...

P.E.S.D. = Post Election Stress Disorder

Representative Brian Mast had a great comeback for this garbage (he was a bomb tech in Iraq and lost both legs and a finger when he tried to disarm an IED). "It should actually be called Post Inauguration Stress Syndrome instead because it's all just P.I.S.S. Unless they actually lose limbs, hearing, eyesight, or the ability to cope with the 'real' world when they get back, they have no right to compare their crap to PTSD."

They're just so pissed off that they have had their brains blow up. What a bunch of spoiled brats who must have gotten trophies for just showing up on the playground.

I've never heard the term
THIS the definition of "Snowflakes" that YOU are using?

Top Definition
Referring to someone, usually the Alt-Right, Yiannopoulos, And Nazi Sympathizers (A.K.A. ARYANS), whose immense white fragility causes a meltdown when confronted with the most minute deviation from orthodox White Supremacy. They often cry bloody murder when expected to give the most modest expression of basic human decency.

This is all a continuation of how Snowflake historically refers to people who are against the abolition of slavery.

The ARYANS have attempted to hijack this term to use against progressives and those opposing Fascism. It failed ultimately, because nobody was foolish enough to believe anti-Fascist resisters to be, by any stretch of the imagination, comparable to the snowflakery of the ARYANs and their cheeto-dusted Fuhrer

IF they are true "snowflakes" they'll be be gone in a few weeks

When I hear Alt-right I think of that Stephen Bannon...Trumps/ "right hand man"... Get it? His "right hand man---Alt right? Coincidence?...I think not.

I just noticed the term "snowflake" isn't in your link

Perhaps you could show me where the term is used....

New one on me too

so I googled it this way;

what kind of people are called snowflakes

and the resulting top hits made it fairly clear. While it may have been used for other purposes, it seems to have evolved to refer more to overly sensitive "millennials" who were coddled by their parents and may have felt themselves to be the center of the universe. They've never been permitted to feel rejection and can't deal with it. Crying and tantrums have always worked but now they've run into a rejection that they can't cry and tantrum their way out of. So sad, isn't it?

In MY opinion

the main characteristic of a "snowflake" is it's colour....WHITE...

IF they are calling someone snowflake because they are soft..perhaps calling them "feathers' would be more appropriate...AND there are different colours of "feathers"..

ALL snowflakes are WHITE.

ALL "millennials" aren't WHITE...snowflakes go away when it gets too warm...

So "snowflake" doesn't "work" because the millennials are still here and they're not all white...

here's another explanation on the use of snowflake.

Calling someone a snowflake combines every single thing a college freshman loves: trolling people on the Internet, a self-satisfied sense of the superiority of one’s own impeccable powers of reasoning, and Fight Club.

There’s a slogan among Trump protesters that’s become increasingly common on protest signs. “Damn right we’re snowflakes,” the signs read. “And winter is coming.”

So now, even though you think

personally that the term is racist and refers to 'whites' only, you're ok with them calling THEMSELVES 'snowflakes'.

Make up your freaking mind, JP......typical liberal. Condemn something, then back up and support it completely. Good grief.

RE:Good grief.

Again with "Good grief".

You don't recognize sarcasm?

Since your tone

in your posts is relatively the same throughout, it IS hard to recognize sarcasm from you.

As for 'snowflakes' and 'winter is coming''s almost spring here in the USA actually so I guess you're saying your snowflake buddies will all disappear soon. There is a God.

.it's almost spring here in the USA actually so I guess you're saying your snowflake buddies will all disappear soon.

Your opinion is totally messed up then

because the term 'snowflake' for anti-Trump supporters, including millennials, has been around for a while, and you are deliberately trying to turn it into a racial issue, which is the norm for liberals every day anymore.

I noticed that you had no comment about their new illness designation though....does that mean that, like those who lost their 99 weeks of unemployment benefits jumped on the SS Disability money tree for 'mental stress', they are now 'entitled' to do the same for their PESD crap? If BO was still the Give-Away In Chief, they would.
