I always figured it was because snowflake-callers (the thin-skinned/easily offended people who call other people snowflakes) think that "snowflakes" feel they should be treated as special and delicate - like a snowflake. The irony, of course, being that it comes from people who get knee-bucklingly offended about others getting offended.
Ridiculous on all sides, and the behavior of snowflakes and snowflake-callers should be embarrassing to themselves. Unfortunately, both sides are too busy being offended by the other to bother sopping up the mush which was once their spines.
Personally, I guess I'm a snowplow. I can just lower the blade and continue moving forward, even when someone unconnected to me is offended by something. Doesn't phase me, couldn't care less. I feel like snowflake-callers are even more spineless and sissified than the snowflakes they are so offended by.
What a joke. I wonder what percentage of us are blessed enough to be neither.

I also fail to understand the apparent vilification of the term "social justice warrior" is social justice not something we should all inherently strive to achieve? What am I missing?
