A snowflake has become a term to describe an entitled, whiny, weak, sensitive person, whose anxiety is easily triggered. They want everything their way all the time, and are easily offended. They take offense on behalf of others who are not offended.
They have no limits or boundaries on how extreme they will take their sensitivity. They espouse tolerance for all except those who disagree with them. They are meta- sensitive in that even being called a snowflake triggers them. Male subtypes of Snowflakes are Soy-boys or Beta- males.
See the video below for more on Soy-boys
They are afraid of guns. They drink emasculating, feminizing soy milk and eat tofu while wearing sperm-count lowering skinny jeans. They discourage clapping to show approval as that may trigger anxiety (no, I did not make that up). They have ‘allergic reactions” to strong smells.
They equate the American Flag with racism and oppression, though America was the first nation to outlaw slavery, a many millennia old practice, and pursue civil rights for all, except heterosexual white men and Christians.
See the video below for more about how Western civilization, led by America, has been the cornerstone of equality and liberty.
Snowflakes cry when they don’t get their way, are entitled, think they have the right to never be offended, and don’t like work. They frighten me. The reason they frighten me is that they are the future of our nation and Western civilization. We are in real trouble.
The Power in Being a Victim
There is power in taking on the victim role. Other people will expect less of you. People will tiptoe around you so you don’t get triggered and have an adult temper tantrum. When you present yourself as weak and fragile, others will treat you that way. Others will hold you less accountable. You will get your way. A price tag comes with this treatment. You will become even weaker. In this way, a self-perpetuating cycle will be created.
The Cost of Being a Victim
This is very straightforward. You will be weak, mentally and physically. There are also those who will not indulge you; they will victimize you and exploit you. There are predatory human beings who seek out weak human beings for criminal victimization.
Weak is a Choice
People with disabilities, injuries, or the frail elderly do not have a much of a choice as to how physically capable they can be. Most people do. Our bodies are remarkable, self-maintaining machines that we should be thankful for, and train and develop to our fullest potential. How ungrateful and complacent it is to allow yourself to decay prematurely.
What an insult to people who are disabled or less capable, who yearn to be able-bodied, when people take their bodies for granted and mistreat themselves. It is easy to be weak. Sit in a chair or on the couch all day and play video games, and watch clickbait videos.
Eat high fat, sugary, salt-laden foods. Smoke two packs of cigarettes a day. Your muscles will atrophy, your cardiovascular capacity will diminish, and you will gain fat. Or go to an air-conditioned or heated gym twice a week and ride the recumbent bike or walk on a treadmill for half an hour, then tell yourself you work out.
Dumb is a Choice
Some people suffer from Mental Retardation/Developmental Disabilities. They are born with a below average IQ which will not progress past a certain point despite efforts at education and training, and they will have difficulty adapting to their changing environment, and doing tasks which most adults take for granted.
Once again, those with an average IQ or higher are being ungrateful for their intellect and abilities if they squander it. Sitting and watching hour after hour of video games, and silly videos will not just cause your muscles to atrophy. It will weaken your mind. Our nation needs smart people. Stupid is dangerous. Look at vax deniers and the Fat Acceptance Movement and the harm they are causing because they do not understand basic scientific principles.
The Slippery Slope, One Day at a Time
Mental and physical strength must be maintained. Habits have to be maintained. Bad habits are easy to slide into. Someone who weighs 400 pounds and is suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease didn’t get there overnight.
The condition they are presently in is the summation of many days of bad choices. Making yourself mentally and physically strong also occurs one day at a time. Every rep in the gym, every line in a book, every minute of educational video, every new place you see and new experience you have will strengthen you.

Mental fortitude includes intelligence, skills, knowledge, confidence and competence that come from knowing things, tolerance for discomfort, and a will to perform and succeed.
- Read more. Read classic literature, books that have stood the test of time and are an integral part of Western civilization. You can access free EBooks on Gutenberg.com.
- If you want to watch YouTube there are many channel which build your knowledge instead of dulling your mind. Start with: PragurU, Simple History, Alux, SciShow
- Embrace discomfort. Accept that you can’t always be comfortable. Sometimes you will be bored, scared, lonely, too cold, too warm, or tired or hungry.
- Carry a notepad everywhere. Yes, a notepad and pen, not a device. Handwriting and penmanship are becoming dying skills. When you hear a new word, a new idea, discover a new restaurant, or meet someone new, write it down.
- Learn new skills and accumulate credentials, certification, and licenses. Make yourself as smart and skilled as possible.
- Do things for yourself. When I go into a store, I refuse all offers of help. Can I help you? Can I help you? I will help myself. I will walk up and down the aisles until I find what I am looking for. The only time I ask for help finding something is if I am in a hurry and have more pressing things to attend. When I refuse help and find an item in the store myself, I have just gained two opportunities: I learn something new, getting a little smarter, and I had to walk more than necessary, so I got a little stronger.
- Don’t overlook the little things that make you soft. Creamy aftershave lotion? Seriously? I want my aftershave to sting when I slap it on. Sugar in your coffee? Try drinking it black. You will be surprised at how good it is, if you have picked good quality coffee.
- Are you a believer? Pray for courage, fortitude, and whatever else you need in your life. Not a believer? Try it anyway. So sorry Atheists, but The Creator is there; whether you believe it or not doesn’t change anything. And why are you getting so adamant and worked up over something you say does not exist?
- Work out at least four or five days a week. Do heavy lifts that engage multiple muscle groups, such as the bench press, squat, deadlift, and farmers walk. Another good combination is deadlifts, dips, pull-ups and squats. Not ready to lift? Walk. Every day, walk as much as possible.
If you are over 40, or have never worked out, or not worked in a long while, see your physician first for medical clearance.
- Eat right. Avoid processed foods. Choose fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meat, poultry and fish, whole milk, yogurt, butter and cheese, olive oil, avocado oil, nuts and seeds, and a little dark chocolate.
- Hydrate, hydrate, and hydrate.
- Sleep seven to nine hours every night.
- No illegal drugs and minimal alcohol.
- Never use tobacco products of any kind. Inhaling smoke into your lungs from burnt tobacco, or chewing tobacco leaves is harmful to your health in multiple ways. There is not a single thing about it that is any good.
- Get outdoors. Walk outdoors, run, bike and swim outdoors, work outdoors, sit outdoors, and work out outdoors. Expose yourself to sunlight, heat and cold, and wind and rain.
- Speaking of the outdoors, do you have basic survival skills? Can you navigate with a map and compass, the sun, and landmarks? Build a fire without matches, or at least with matches? Make a shelter? Identify edible berries and plants? Purify water? Catch a fish? In our industrialized, sanitized and electronically dependent society, many people have never done these things. Learn how. Take a course, have an experienced outdoorsman teach you, or at least look up sources and get out in the woods and learn through trial and error. It will be a fun experience, and help you develop tolerance for discomfort. Start by picking a place close by where you can walk out easily, not where a search party and rescue will be needed if things go sideways.
- Prepare for the unexpected. The unexpected does not have to be a nationwide societal collapse. It could be a hurricane, tornado, local flooding, an industrial accident that necessitates evacuating for a few days, losing your income, or a bad case of the flu if you live alone and can’t leave the house for a few days. Develop maximum self-sufficiency. Start with basic necessities. Keep at least 10 liters of water per person on hand, a week of non-perishable food, have an overnight bag in your car, $400 in cash, and ibuprofen, Imodium, and packets of Emergen-C. A personal favorite to ease the suffering of the flu are power gels. They go down easy and stay down even on an upset stomach, taste good, and provide electrolytes and easily digested carbs. Also have a good reliable flashlight or three, matches, and some candles.
- Be prepared to save a life, or at least patch someone up, including yourself. Take a Red Cross First Aid course, CPR, AED operation, and Infant/Child CPR. Learn some of the basics of anatomy and physiology, and pharmacology.
Don’t Indulge Whining from Weak People
Snowflakes are very high maintenance employees. There is yet another contradiction in the liberal thought process, in that they preach equality for all, yet want special treatment. You can’t have it both ways. If you are a supervisor, manager, or otherwise in authority over others, don’t indulge whiny employees. Their feelings are really not important, their performance is.
Josh raised his voice to me. That was inappropriate and I felt very hurt and threatened. .
A secretary made a mistake on the same simple task three times in a row, so Josh grew frustrated and repeated himself for the fourth time, a little louder than usual. The delicate little snowflake went to HR and complained. HR went to Josh’s supervisor. Josh’s supervisor sat him down for an hour interrogation, recording a timeline of events of “this incident”. The meeting concluded with a stern warning that any further behavioral escalation would result in immediate termination. Josh had a skill set developed over a decade which was of great value to his company, but after being devalued like this, he started looking elsewhere.
The HR manager should have told the little brat to stop whining and get back to work. If anyone needed to be disciplined, it was her for not being able to do her job. A politically incorrect but objective reality is that some people have more valuable skills than others.
The secretary was 19 with a high school education. Josh was a 44 year old man with an MBA (Masters of Business Administration) and he was a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and an attorney. Who is of more value to the organization? Another consideration is that I have felt hurt and threatened many times in my life, and have never got a dime for it. Stop being so entitled.
Do not accept weakness in yourself or others. It will have negative effects on your life and the people around you. If enough people embrace weakness as a lifestyle choice, it can impact an entire generation, and a nation.
