A member of that newly-adult, me'er-than-me generation which expects attention and praise just for being themselves -- doing anything to deserve it is completely optional.
Oh, he's too much of special snowflake to get a day job -- his mom's paying the rent while he hangs out waiting for the perfect high-paying project to come along. I guess the market for C-minus filmmaking majors is a little soft right now or something.

The Special Snowflake (Also referred to as one with the "Special Snowflake Syndrome" or "SSS") is a person who believes they are different and unique from everyone else because of something there are or do. This thing they are or do, most commonly is something is something many many other people are doing, E.G. Genderfluid, Therian (Otherkin), etc. Special Snowflakes almost always have a superiority complex.
Some Special Snowflakes are protesting at Target because they aren't allowed to wear their costumes inside.

A problem person. A person who thinks they are unique, different and therefor more special that everyone else. Derived from too many parents telling their kids they are "special," like a "snowflake." Typically used by used by those in the customer service or retail industry to refer to bad customers.
That lady was a special snowflake, in a blizzard of other special snowflakes; shes unique, just like everyone else.

Someone who believes they deserve the stars because they like something no one else likes, or does something no one else does. There is no know cure for SSS (Special Snowflake Syndrome), so the rest of the world must deal with these sort of people until they realize they aren't better than anyone else, and they don't need an award or a cookie for their interests. Not to be confused with a hipster.
A special snowflake: "I liked My Chemical Romance before Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge! Love me."

Often found on popular internet forums as an option to a poll, the "Snowflake" option refers to individuals whose answers, experiences, and opinions are as unique as a snowflake, and therefore cannot be categorized into one of the regular poll options.

Can also appear as just "snowflake."

Special Snowflake Syndrome (also known as Speshul Snowflake) is a psychological phenomen of Generation Y, where the people suffering from it seem to live under the illusion that they are special for doing things that are stereotypically considered "lame" or childish, like drinking through a funny-straw or building forts. More often than not they are in High School (though it's not uncommon to find them on college campuses also) and are recognized by the way that they condemn their peers for drinking and partying and whoring around, whereas they're preserving their childhood innocence and being original by watching cartoons and still cutting the crust off their sandwiches. They are also known as the First Form of Hipster.
While all my other classmates are out getting shitfaced at parties and sleeping around, I built a fort out of pillows and blankets in my bedroom and had a Lion King Marathon (because Lion King is like, awesome) while eating cereal. I am such a special snowflake.

A term used to call out (mainly tumblr) genderqueers who are commonly racist, misandric, and heterophobic. They use very strange terms that no one else seems to understand to label them selves

to make them feel special, causing normal people to call them Special Snowflake, because unlike
Special Snowflakes, every snowflake is unique.
Tumblr Feminist: I FUCKING HATE CIS WHITE MEN BECAUSE ALL THEY DO IS RAPE WOMEN AND FUCKING STINK UP THIS ABLEIST PLANET!!!1!!1

Normal Person: Wow, what a Special Snowflake..
