Let's reclaim the term snowflake! Snowflakes are magical and they're unique! Everybody knows that!
We've compared the beauty and uniqueness of individual humans with that of snowflakes for more than a hundred years. I'm not willing to let some upstart with a film camera (you know who you are) take what is good and beautiful and very true and weaponize it to hurt people.
Snowflake is an apt description for us gender diverse people because if there's one thing we all have in common it's that each our experience of gender identity is an utterly unique felt and lived experience. So, let's join together in a loud and proud chorus: "I'm a unique snowflake!"
