Snowflakes are irrational and intolerant

What lunatics. Mike Pence apparently “makes” these snowflakes feel “unsafe.” Well as a counselor who practices cognitive-behavioral approaches with clients, let me say that NO ONE ever “makes” anyone feel anything. The problem with the snowflakes is their IRRATIONAL thinking, based on a set of what we call core cognitive distortions: (1) Socialism good, America bad; (2) Trump is a fascist; (3) Anything that challenges what our college professors have pounded into our heads since we arrived on campus HAS to be wrong; after all, our professors are ALWAYS right. That is the sort of bullshit I bought into as a college student myself. And it took me years to get it out of my head. How? Challenging the cognitive distortions around all of the things I’d assumed were true.
