Conservatives point to constant and occasionally violent skirmishes on American college campuses when right-wingers come to speak as a prime example of snowflakery run amok. 

Right-wing media had a field day when some students asked for extra time to complete assignments due to the trauma of Trump being elected. Being incapable of listening to ideas that contradict your own is a classic definition of snowflake-ism.

But the left wing claps back, saying it's the right who are the truly delicate snowflakes. Flipping out if someone wishes them "happy holidays," crying and covering their ears if someone mentions the fact that systemic racism exists, losing it when comedy shows ridicule the president.

 And they call the famously thin-skinned Donald Trump the flakiest snowflake of them all.

Silly taunting aside, many conservatives and free-speech advocates say liberals are using their supposed insensitivity to infringe on people's First Amendment rights, as well as their right to peaceful assembly. When snowflake-ism leads to censorship and the denial of other people's rights, the joke isn't funny anymore.

 Liberals say conservatives have plenty of their own moments where they scream and cry if subjected to critique or other points of view.

The GOP is taking heat for proposing numerous bills limiting the right to protest, and are circumventing activists by refusing to show up to town halls. Who's too delicate to handle free speech now?

Alt-right firebrand Ann Coulter had a Twitter meltdown over an airplane seat that had all of her critics calling her a sad special snowflake.

When a group of Notre Dame students walked out of Vice President Mike Pence's commencement speech, many said they were engaging in classic snowflake behavior.

And still others think both sides have a tendency to be flaky and overly delicate.
