PDD or "Privilege Denying Dude," an internet meme used to make fun of privilege deniers or people who fail to understand privilege or examples of privilege, like rape culture or dysphoria.
In this case, "privilege" is defined as a set of advantages given to groups considered the majority within society. (In the US, some examples are white privilege, male privilege, straight privilege, cisgender privilege, able-bodied privilege, and neurotypical privilege.) Someone who denies privilege usually fails to understand it, feels guilt or anger towards its existence, thinks that it refutes their accomplishments, or blames its existence on the unprivileged group.
The one good thing I'm getting out of this conversation is that I can probably get it put on the PDD blog.
