special and unique?


I think its usually used to backhandedly refer to special needs children.

It's supposed to be a term for parents who give their kids a million excuses for their behaviors and allow them to do whatever they want. From crawling into a lion's den to scratching your car with a straight razor to shaving the neighbors cat.

However, it has become a term that people use when they see a disabled child. Which is completely mean and wrong.

Oh one more thing, it is usually proceeded by "Special". "Special Snowflake".

I've only heard it used to describe special needs kids. My guess is that's why it's taken so offensively. People bashing those that have things like autism, adhd, add, spd, things like that.

Snowflakes are bits of frozen water that fall from the sky in the far away land of 'Up North'. There is something unnatural and unsettling about frozen ANYthing falling from the sky. That is why I will never live there.

In my opinion, a very stupid term.
