Default The thread of howling snowflakes

This thread is to share stories about the special snowflakes of this world wailing with agony and indignation after allegedly being gravely offended by some heinous violation or other of the sacred dictates of political correctness.

Some snowflakes claim to be indignant because Jerry Rice is getting paid big money to do ads for Popeye's.

I had to look that up. "Snowflake" is a new slang to me. I guess I grew up with "bleeding hearts."

One I'm hearing a lot is "SJW," or social justice warrior. That one gets used very recklessly. I've been called that name on two different message boards, but I'm not one of those. I think to a lot of people it just means something like "bastard."

Snowflakes are people who demand safe spaces and trigger warnings, and who look for flimsy excuses to pretend they're indignant about political incorrectness.

Someone is always being "shamed" about something or other. Usually about their body.

Usually they drive a Subaru hatchback. Comes complete with the animal cage in the back and plastered with bumper stickers, highlighted by the ever classic "coexist" one.

Now can you imagine the howls if someone had called Chelsea Clinton a dog? But Joss "Fuck Marvel!" Whedon is a liberal, of course, and he's attacking a conservative politician's daughter, so he gets a free pass about this. Anyway, does Whedon own a mirror, and does he think he's a hottie?

^I'm glad I'm not on any social media. I'd probably get constantly fed up with celebrities.

I give two craps about the opinion of politics by people in entertainment. Least of all actors and musicians. Just stick to making my movies please.

It's our fault as Americans though. Our culture has put these narcissists on a pedestal for so long that we deserve their idiocy.

Not sure of the exact definition of a snowflake, but he's definitely a narcissist, and one who is VERY easily provoked by anything that challenges his ego.

"Alternative facts".

It´s interesting much some people like to yell "snowflakes". The psychological projection (see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection ) with this this thread being a clear example of it) is quite telling. But hey, "snowflakes" stopped the Wehrmacht in WWII. And as the they say on GoT, "Winter is coming."

Some people are finally realizing that this stuff is backfiring on celebrities and their causes. Nobody with shit for sense thinks these smug narcissists have any special insight about anything except entertaining people. That's what they should stick to.

Worse yet, imagine the howling if someone called one of the Obama girls a dog. That person would never have another job for as long as he lived.
