Someone said :
Do you feel as one with the snowflake generation?
Gawd I loathe that term.
However as a mother of three now adults ( raised for many years by myself ) I'm actually proud that they laugh at that bullshit .
It's such a sneering, damning judgemental and offensive smearing of a generation of kids who were lucky that they had a voice .
For generations children were brushed aside, told they should be " seen but not heard "
Not on my watch !!!
My lot got to cry when they felt scared or felt they failed themselves .
They had their ' safe space ' ( home ) to scream, cry, fight, kick back, express their emotions.
If all of this makes them text book members of the " snowflake generation " I'm calling bullshit on whoever coined the phrase or those who use it.
My children aren't narssacists, cry babies, entitled, self- centred etc etc.
Two are out in the world ( NY ) fighting via their profession for those who don't even have the privilege of being labelled the " snowflake generation " .
The other is working then travelling three months every year so she can learn about other societies and using these experiences to become her " better self ".
