You must admit, though, that it's quite applicable and descriptive in this day and age
Eh, the phrase has been twisted and abused into meaninglessness now.
"Special snowflake" when used pejoratively, is supposed to signify a person who has unreasonable expectations that their own personal needs be met over the needs of others.
But today you see the term trotted out (usually by /pol/tards) to describe vast swaths of the population.
The term is basically used today to mean "someone who is concerned about something I'm not personally concerned about".
Which, quite frankly, makes the person using the term more of a snowflake than anyone else, because they are dismissing the concerns of a lot of people simply because they personally don't give a shit.
Thou art an artless, greasy tallow-catch.
