Privilege, as defined by “An Oral History of the Second Civil War”

Privilege -n.

1) An evil inescapably inherent in one’s enemies that exists in oneself as only entitled virtue.

2) A fallacious process of assigning perceived benefits that exist only to make invalid any argument presented by one who is accused of possessing them.

Areva Martin of CNN

Eg. Ambulatory female who has not once eaten a three-tiered cake alone and in one sitting is accused of having “Thin Privilege” by a woman who has done that very thing mere moments before, completely ruining some poor kid’s bahtmitzvah.
