“I’m fragile. Respect me. Or else.”

Think identity politics has gone too far? This snowflake thinks the joke's on you.

"I'm gender non-binary!" "I'm a 'black' white woman!" "I'm a reincarnated dragon!" "I'm from an alternate dimension called 'heaven!" Where is the line?

Online groups and comedians of all stripes love poking fun at non-standard identities with comments like "only on Tumblr,” “snowflake generation,” and infinite satire images, sketches, and videos that suggest we've taken tolerance too far.

We laugh nervously, overwhelmed by an onslaught of labels and politically correct identity politics, and afraid of the hair-trigger defences of hyper-individualists... millennials in a minority of one. But maybe there's a great deal more to laugh at than the unconventional.

Ren, the genderqueer performance artist of Michelle/Ryan and the theatrical comedy "Ze": queer as f*ck! runs with the memes, proving we all take ourselves seriously in some pretty funny ways.

Michelle/Ryan (Ren) has been nominated and won awards for comedy and artistic risk in Australia and Canada.
