Special Snowflake(syndrome) is a derogatory term widely used to describe someone who often whines about deserving special treatment or sees oneself as exceptionally unique for no apparent reason. The term probably derives from what our mothers always told us as kids that we are "special and unique, like a snowflake".

“特别雪花”或“特别雪花综合征”是一个具有贬义的说法,多用来指代那些莫名其妙就自以为与众不同、应享受特殊待遇的人。这个说法大概来源于,我们小时候,妈妈经常会说,我们都是“特别的,独一无二的,就像雪花一样”。

 

要说这个说法的起源,还得从一部电影说起。

 

On October 15th, 1999, the film Fight Club was released. The film features one of the protagonists, Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) telling the men looking to join the fight club:“You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake.”

1999年10月15日,电影《搏击俱乐部》上映。片中的主人公之一、由布拉德·皮特扮演的暴力王泰勒对想要加入搏击俱乐部的人说:“你不特别。你也不是美丽的、独一无二的雪花。”
