    You know, I've never considered it that way- just that they are overly precious and delicate- but that is absolutely true.

    Personally if I get through the day without being called a curmudgeon, silly grandad, old git/fart, idiot/fool, soft as ****e, grumpy, lazy selfish tw*t, jammy bastard, you are only politically correct when it suits you... I consider myself lucky

    Maybe he's getting offended on behalf of someone else ?

    That to me is the epitome of a snowflake.
    Like i said in another thread.
    Banter even between mates is frowned on now incase some other person gets offended ffs.

    <doh>

    You should tell the vicar to get off your case or find another church mate.

    Famous 'Snowflakes'
    The allied forces who gave so much to bring down Hitler, the darling of the bullies and haters.
    Gandhi
    Mother Theresa
    The Labour Governments that gave us the NHS and an education system that was available to all. What softies eh, letting working class people have peace of mind.

    Odd to start a thread about the term snowflakes when you clearly have no idea what it means.

    But no one would describe those people as snowflakes. They had just and righteous causes and fought for them. They didn't just jump on a bandwagon, they didn't get offended when people disagreed with them, they fought their causes properly.

    Also, Labour aren't solely responsible for the NHS. It was first proposed and the principles of it were laid out in a report by Liberal MP William Beveridge in 1942. It was under the Conservative coalition that the first white paper proposing its creation was written in 1944. Conservative MP Henry Willink spent a long time wranglingwith the British Medical Association, who were opposed to it, to get it passed but was ultimately unsuccessful. Then finally, in 1948, Nye Bevan was tasked with implementing the new service and managed to break the deadlock with the BMA. So, the truth is that the NHS was an all-party agreement.

    So did all the allied soldiers stick to a strict regime of talking nice to everyone and spreading love and peace ?
    Churchill let over a million Indians starve to death.

    Ghandi was a racist and sexist.

    Mother Theresa.
    "Mother Teresa believed the sick must suffer like Christ on the cross".
    The Catholic church,
    Say no more ;)

    Labour, ah the jew haters.
    Google "shamed labour MP's" because I can't be arsed listing them all ;)

    I think you can safely say Bri has just lost his argument.

    Nail on head.

    Was down the shops earlier today and two old biddy's were struggling to get a microwave into the back of their car so i stopped and helped them. As i was walking off i heard one of them say to the other "if only there were more gentlemen like him around nowadays".

    I didn't do it for kudos, i did it because it was the right thing to do. That being said, hearing their words to each other gave me a nice warm feeling that's lasted for the rest of the day.

    Simple kindness goes a long way to making life enjoyable.

    That's how it should be. Being nice to people is nice and makes everyone's day better. I always try to smile at people when I pass them in the street. Mind, I probably look like some kind of predator <laugh>
    Someone once told me that they'd helped a woman carry her shopping because that was the gentlemanly thing to do. She took offence and tried to make out it was sexist and was denying her her independence. That for me is a snowflake- looking to make a social justice point but make it wrongly. It seems you can't win with these kind of people.

    I used to have a cat, if I kicked it and got 'it's out of system I could be nice to everyone for the rest of the day...?

    Similar thing happened to me a few years ago.

    Walking into a restaurant and a woman was coming out so i opened the door for her and held it open. She basically abused me saying that she was an independent woman and didn't need any assistance from a man.

    My wife was with me at the time and couldn't believe what she heard and saw. And some people wonder why chivalry is dying.
