A term for someone that thinks they are unique and special, but really are not. It gained popularity after the movie "Fight Club" from the quote “You are not special. You're not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else."

Began being used extensively as a putdown for someone, usually on the political left, who is easily offended or felt they needed a "safe space" away from the harsh realities of the world, but now has morphed into a general putdown for anyone that complains about any subject.
Comedians have a hard time performing on college campuses anymore because of all the little snowflakes running around that get offended by just about anything they say.

A very sensitive person. Someone who is easily hurt or offended by the statements or actions of others.

This has nothing to do with politics. Snowflakes can be liberal or conservative. Whether it is a compliment or an insult is a matter of opinion and depends on the context.

A term used to describe extremist liberals that get offended by every statement and/or belief that doesn't exactly match their own. These individuals think they are just as "unique" as snowflakes, when really their feelings are just as fragile.

A snowflake will always be a whiny safe space seeking, politically correct individual who is unable to accept any facts that make their truths be come not true, who are unable to have a true mature debate without trying to silence the other sides opinion. A snowflake is someone who preaches free speech, but then attacks those who express this freedom when the speech contradicts the snowflakes opinion(commonly seen in third wave feminists)
A snowflake is known to start riots for pointless reasons and destroying private property when they don't get their way..
Snowflakes tend to believe that misogyny and the wage gap is a real thing(again third wave feminists).
NOT all left wingers are snowflakes, there are PLENTY of mature respectable left wingers out there but always remember
that EVERY snowflake is definitely of the left wing.
the snowflakes threw a fit when Trump won!
