"Look, I wasn't around when all that bad stuff happened," the "Dude" explains. "All I know is I got to where I am solely by hard work. Discrimination? I'm not going to listen to this. You obviously can't hear me: my reality is the only reality." He's just telling it like it is!

It's the brainchild of one Diana, who describes herself as "20 years old in Southern California. I try to post on race, feminism, animal rights, atheism, disability, class, gender, and Latin-America."

I'm no fun. I find myself wondering why "Privilege-Denying Dude" is so fun to take aim at. Is it because it's easier to cast privilege-denying as dude behavior? Because it seems to me, in a commenting community that's home to PLENTY of privilege deniers of the female persuasion, that this meme tells us quite a bit about what people are comfortable calling out and what they are not. It makes me wonder if "Privilege-Denying Chick" would have similar cachet — because I've read a lot of the race-related comments ascribed to "privilege-denying dudes" in Jezebel comment threads.

This is not to deny the need to call dudes out (or that there isn't good reason for making the privilege denier a dude), but there's a smugness when it comes to the race and class stuff that is not necessarily warranted here.
