    A new survey reveals that young people believe being called a “snowflake” could be damaging to their mental health.
    A new survey by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 percent of 16 to 24-year-olds believethe term “snowflake” is unfairly applied to millennials. 74 percent of respondents took it a step farther, arguing that they believe the use of the label could have a negative effect on young people’s mental health.

    The study was born out of interest in the term “snowflake generation” which was originally used to describe young people who thought they were unique or special. Some suggest it was popularized by a line in the 1996 novel Fight Club and its 1999 film adaptation: “you are not special, you are not a beautiful and unique snowflake.” The word’s meaning eventually evolved to mean “overly-sensitive.” It is often used to describe college students who claim that they are offended by controversial or even mundane ideas.

    They already have a mental disorder if they believe in liberalism. Where would we have been if the college students of the 1940's had been like this? Thankfully they were made of sterner stuff and enlisted in the armed forces in droves to help defeat the Japanese and Germans.

    "Suck it up, buttercup!" Life isn't fair. Life stinks. Deal with it.

    These are the things I tell my kids. They've learned to deal with a LOT of unfair but they wear big people panties and do quite fine.
