Social researcher interviews some singles and convinces them to tell someone they know what’s special about them.
One observation I found particularly insightful is how people put themselves on a pedestal.
Recently on The Matt Walsh blog, Matt related some scathing words he had about a reader’s blog. As can be expected, swarms of comments followed, including this incredible story of Three Special Snowflakes that’ll be familiar to anyone who’se been around the manosphere for an appreciable period of time.
I’ve taken some artistic liberties with the content to add a bit of humor, and present the following for your education and amusement.
A Tale of Three Special Snowflakes at Work
I am a employer (a female) and had to sternly confront three 20-something Special Snowflakes for refusing to follow directions and basically choosing to do the things that they liked and ignoring the things they didn’t like doing. When they heard what I said, you’d thought I’d rained on their parade, told them Santa wasn’t real, and stole their birthday cake all at once because ALL THREE Special Snowflakes began to weep and wail at being told they had to follow my directions.
Bottom line – Snowflake #1 walked out wailing at the top of her lungs trying to get the others to follow her. Snowflake #2 went home to daddy, cried all weekend, and got her father involved. Snowflake #2 Daddy then spent the weekend fomenting insurrection among my employees and whipping them into an emotional froth. Monday morning he came to work with Snowflake #2 to bully me into apologizing to his daughter for being stern with her. He said, “I just want you to appreciate her for how wonderful she is.”
(Because all Special Snowflakes who can’t follow directions are, like, all that – right?) In the absence of an apology, he stood to his full height and began threatening me with legal action. (Because not following directions is a Special Snowflake civil right?). Then he revealed that he had told the three Special Snowflakes that he would come to my office on Monday morning to “protect” them from me while they gathered their personal Snowflake items and left.
Maybe I am/was naive, but I honestly didn’t believe Special Snowflakes were more than a myth told to scare young children! By the end of the week, I had also received a phone call from another Special Snowflake father who threatened me with a lawsuit. ALL because I expressed displeasure over their Special Snowflake non compliance.
I highly recommend reading the original, unedited version in it’s entirety.

I see popular culture harming girls from before the cradle all the way to the grave. I am the father of adopted twin daughters. Adopted is relevant since today’s culture almost resulted in the birth mother aborting them.
So, if the daughter survives the womb, they move on to fairy-tale books where the toad becomes the prince, never “the nice guy who treats her well.” Then there are the Disney movies. The Beast, who imprisoned her father, changes. Aladdin is a thief who will show her a world he’s never seen himself. On to the soap opera and chick-flick males who are rarely hard-working, responsible men and the men who go to work in suits are villains. Let’s not ignore the fixation with vampires and werewolves who cannot get too upset or they will lose control and hurt the girl, but underneath they are kind fluffy puppies with bad teeth.
Popular culture teaches girls that casual sex is freedom, sex with boyfriends is love, yet sex with husbands who commit to them is oppression.
Letter to Dr Laura hits it out of the park
I started following the blog “Priestly Rant” back when the author was promoting the protection and support of pastors suffering in CRM purgatory. I thought he was someone worth supporting , and so I encouraged and supported him in his effort.
Then he changed his blog to “Homo Factus Est”, and starting writing more and more dubious material, until he went over the top with this post, where he clearly outs himself as a supporter of same-sex “marriage” by making a number of specious claims.
A few of them are:
1) Gay marriage controls lust.
This is true only if you ignore consent by the partners to having sexual relationships outside the relationship. From http://www.mercatornet.com/articles/view/open_monogamy
Proponents of “marriage equality” sing their refrain over and over: “Our relationships are just the same as yours.”
Not even close. While just 7 per cent of Americans believe that adultery (sexual infidelity by married, heterosexual partners) is morally acceptable, Dr Hoff’s report emphasizes that nearly 50 per cent of gays in committed relationships specifically affirm sexual infidelity. Other research shows shockingly higher rates (75-95 per cent) of non-monogamy in long-term gay relationships.
2) He then asserts:
sooner or later there will be same-sex couples with their children in our parishes.
this is an argument assuming the conclusion is foregone, and that nothing – include the church authorities – can stop it. This statement ignores a fundamental aspect of the marriage – namely that marriage is the joining of a man and a woman by God, with the Holy Spirit as an active participant in that relationship. Any other physical relationship outside of that boundary is immoral and forbidden just as a male-female pairing outside marriage is also forbidden. There is no comparison between same-sex arrangements and a godly marriage. Godly marriage is between a man and a woman joined by God, all other arrangements stand on their own without Him.
If a church actually believes what Scripture teaches about marriage and the sacrament of Holy Communion, then it cannot admit such pairings into membership, much less commune them to their death.
It’s one thing to be afflicted with same-sex attraction, it’s quite another to unrepentantly enter into such a immoral union and expect God’s church to recognize and affirm it by admitting such people to the altar.
