A person obnoxiously self-entitled and self-righteous based on their personal traits (e.g. gender, sexual or dietary preference). Special Snowlakes are widely known for deeming their own set of features superior to the uniform mass around them.

The term comes from the obvious fact, that every snowflake is unique in pattern, thus calling one of them special based on uniqueness is as senseless, as calling a person special for having a unique set of fingerprints.

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."

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.

Normal Person: Wow, what a Special 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.
