Define "snowflake culture".

Is it the culture that treats everyone as a special snowflake, or is it the culture that uses "special snowflake" as an insult? Because I've seen both being used.

When I was growing up, snowflakes were used as an analogy for how no two people are exactly alike and it was not considered a bad thing

That was in the 80s

"We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years," The Rock said. "People can be who they want, be with who they want, and live how they want. That can only be a good thing, but generation snowflake, or whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards."

Snowflake culture is when Rock accidently tells a gay wrestler to shove something up his butt that they think Rock is being homophobic and want him destroyed.

Didn't happen...yet

But Rock says that to everyone so it might happen eventually if he keeps wrestling.

"I dont have to agree with what somebody thinks, who they vote for, what they voted for, what they think, but I will back their right to say or believe it," The Rock said. "Thats democracy."

I guess what he's trying to say is that he's just really tired of our "candy asses."

Nope. Southpark explained over a decade ago about how we need both parts of society. Nothing changed. We do fucked up shit and look sympathetic at the same time.

Nah, the country is literally falling apart from the inside because of snowflake culture.

While the outside watches with laughter waiting for the right moment to strike.

The people who tried to kill Kevin Hart's career.

Also probably relevant to Rock saying this since that is his bud.

People act like the United States haven't been like this forever. The only difference is the common person has way more information. And some people are scared of that information.

Edit: I obviously don't mean literally forever.

Snowflake culture is the phenomenon where society encourages folks to be whatever they want to be (which is a morally good thing in that general idea) with the added new cultural norms of trying to please and reward everyone, even those who do not excel. You cannot just tell children they can grow up and be anything they want, and that everyone is equal, proceed to reward them for coming in not only 1st place but 2nd, 3rd, and everything in between and including LAST place, and expect the losers to just accept their failure.

I dont think itll get that bad, or at least I hope it wont. Generation Soft will eventually be faced with some huge challenge that will force people to reevaluate and adapt. There is nothing like that right now in the West, so the outrage on both sides of every issue reflects that. Wait for another World War or some plague, then we wont have the time nor use for people who are only good at playing Oppression Olympics.
