When people use the term snowflake unironically, just remember they're quoting Fight Club, a satire written by a gay man about how male fragility causes men to destroy themselves, resent society and become radicalized. and that Tyler Durden isnt the hero but a personification of the main character's deep insecurities, and that his snowflake speech is a dig at how fascists use dehumanizing language to breed loyalty from insecure people.

@jacethechicken i don't think that was written as a satire. The mindset, however is stupid.

Infact did see a youtube video arguing(with facts) that it's origin might be quite dark. Derp, can't find it back. (Also i am not 100% sure if it convinced me?)

@jasper not a satire in the "haha comedy" sense, but in the sense that it is portraying something in an exaggerated way with the intent of criticizing / riddiculing that thing. Fight Club was deffo written to critique fragile hypermasculinity, not make it look good.
