An informal logical fallacy in which one arguer compares the unpleasant activities of another to her/his own more favorable circumstance. For a comparison to fall under this fallacy, the arguer must both act like the situations are the same and make the other person feel bad about their own circumstance.
Arguer: "You think it's bad being an actuary? Yeah, try being an baby animal cuddler who has no allergies whatsoever."
Other person: "Bullshit! Asshole comparison!"
