But if one has seen that snowflake and then it melts, does it live on in our memory...or does it become a melt?

I think snowflake is the battle cry of snowflakes on the other side of the political spectrum. Usually, those who decry people as snowflakes, act in exactly the same manner. Any right winger you see accusing someone of being a snowflake, will typically act in exactly the same manner to the reverse scenario.

Dumb c**ts are what we used to call them, before people started giving them publicity and the oxygen of attention.

Why are they mutually exclusive?

Yes to both.

IMHO of course.

Dumb c**ts are what we used to call them, before people started giving them publicity and the oxygen of attention.
Social media facilitated the rise of radical, social justice warriors and the global dissemination of their extremist views. Right wingers initially and ironically called such people 'Snowflakes' because they consider choosing to clad their views under an assumed blanket of 'political correctness' means majority opinion within our democracies must instantly bend to their ultra-minority viewpoint, or even a single, unique viewpoint. Hence the name 'snowflake.' Some say it harks back to a speech from the movie 'Fight Club' in which Tyler Durden told his Space Monkeys that they were not 'beautiful or unique snowflakes,' something that liberal education programs has been promoting as an idea when molly-coddling children in schools since the eighties.

You're right in saying the term is hurled about in both directions these days, however. I think of the majority of the more radical SJW 'snowflakes' as simply good-intentioned yet angry people who feel entitled ( by education ) to demand the world re-shape itself to fit their currently marginalized identity. For example, straight men must find sexually attractive the <0.7% of men who wear dresses and wish upon a star that they were women or face the censure of being termed a bigot. Calling 'Snowflakes' 'dumb c*nts' is a little dismissive since they cannily use political correctness to say all sorts of otherwise indefensible, undemocratic and illogical things.

Melt to me is somebody that is a bit under the thumb/drops out of things last minute/bit of a wet blanket.

Snowflake is more somebody who is easily offended by everything, and goes out of their way to be offended.

I thought they were totally different things?

I thought a 'melt' was a wannabee hooligan who acts hard but 'melts' into the background when things turn genuinely rough.

I thought a snowflake was a term used by right-wingers to mock liberals and socialists.

I think that argument can be summed up as "Oooh, that's you that is". Clever but don't give up the day job.

The term you are looking for is broflake. But snowflake, broflake, whatever. it’s all rather tragic.
