PRIVILEGED, adj. As defined by the politically correct, the fortunate state of being mistreated—but not as badly as others. To illustrate this, let’s consider two prisoners in open-topped cells, one of whom is pissed upon by guards, the other of whom is shit upon by guards. According to PC ideologues, the prisoner who is merely pissed upon is “privileged” in comparison to the one who is shit upon.

According to these same ideologues, all prisoners should “struggle” to ensure that the “oppressed” shit-upon come to share the exalted status of the “privileged” pissed-upon, rather than “struggle” to end incarceration. In fairness, some PC ideologues would object that they do want to end incarceration—they just want to ensure that all are pissed upon first.
