Feeling anxious and stressed about Donald Trump’s presidency? If meditating in your happy place or joining an anti-Trump protest didn't help reduce your worries, there is a different sort of advice at hand.

In an interview Tuesday with the Evening Standard, Chuck Palahniuk, author of "Fight Club," said people needed to not be easily offended or provoked. His comments were in response to a question about the popularization of the term "snowflake," which is now being used by Trump supporters to disparagingly address liberals.

But what does the term mean? Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren broke it down on her TV show: “If you spend more time occupying Wall Street than you do occupying a shower or a job, you might be a snowflake. ... If the term ‘white Christmas’ sounds racist to you, you might be a snowflake. ... If you believe illegal immigrants should be able to get drivers licenses, in-state tuition and Obamacare, you might be a snowflake.”

She also added: “If Donald Trump’s tweets bother you more than the four Americans we lost in Benghazi, classified information shared on a private server, Saudi-bought influence at the State Department or paid violence at Trump rallies, you might be a snowflake.”

Palahniuk, who was asked about the term, took credit for coining the term. “It does come from Fight Club. There is a line, ‘You are not special. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake’,” the author said.

More precisely, the origin of the term is chapter 17 of Palahniuk’s 1996 novel:

"You are not special. You’re not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else. We’re all part of the same compost heap. We’re the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."

Asked about the term’s changing usage, the 54-year-old replied: “There is a kind of new Victorianism. ... Every generation gets offended by different things but my friends who teach in high school tell me that their students are very easily offended. ... The modern Left is always reacting to things, once they get their show on the road culturally they will stop being so offended. ... That’s just my bulls--t opinion.”

However, when asked if the public is overly offended by Trump, the writer said: “I’m going to pass on that one.”
