Yes, all the time. When you're engaging in social justice, you're going to hear that, especially if you're advocating for safe places for students.

Have you ever been called a "special snowflake" to your face?

No, it's online or on social media, even my family members will say it.

No, I've never heard of that, I have no idea what that is!

No, but I've heard of it in a political context.

Who is being called a "special snowflake"?

It's mostly used for liberals or Democrats. I binge-watch Tomi Lahren because she pisses me off... That's when I hear or read it, and it's usually derogatory.

No, and I haven't heard that term before. I know really liberal people get called names.

Our professor actually called us "special snowflakes" today! Not in a bad way or anything, it's funny — we were just talking about résumé-building and he said we're all "special, unique snowflakes."
