Why You Must Not Call Snowflakes Snowflakes

Don’t call snowflakes snowflakes. You might prove that they are snowflakes by damaging their fragile mental health:

The “snowflake generation” is a disparaging term now commonly used to refer to young people, who are perceived to be over-sensitive and intolerant of disagreement.

But research by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 per cent of 16-24 year-olds think the term is unfairly applied, while 74 per cent think it could have a negative effect on young people’s mental health.

This mental health is already in a precarious state:

Almost half of adults between 16 and 24 said they had experienced stress or anxiety, compared to just over a third of all UK adults.

Snowflakes are just as apt to melt in the USA, where the term originated to describe neurotic millennials who require trigger warnings and safe spaces, and who indulge in the delusion that they are special and unique.
