Don't call us snowflakes - it damages our mental health, say young people

Being called a "snowflake" is damaging to mental health, young people say.  Figures show that the majority of young people think the term is unfair - and even more think it could have a negative effect of its own. 

The "snowflake generation" is a disparaging term now commonly used to refer to young people, who are perceived to be over-sensitive and intolerant of disagreement.

I had to explain to LWJ what a snowflake was. Now she will understand why 3rd son jointly hosted a Snowflake party at Cal.
