A term, often used in a derogatory manner, to refer to comments and rebuttals about about the current year and the actual or expected state of being for a society.

The phrase has its origins on 4chan, with satire of John William Oliver and his use of the current year as a straw man argument.
Person A: How am I privileged again? I was born to a single mother and a dad who ran away never to pay child support, only to graduate high-school as the recession peaked.

Person B: (Jokingly) You are white and male. You have no argument and should understand this, it's current year.

The Current Year Fallacy refers to any argument of flawed logic (also known as a fallacy) that attempts to use ‘the current year’ as a reason to push any given political, or social, reform.

Get the Current Year Fallacy mug.
The annoying buzzphrase people use to rally people to their ideology without doing any work.
Person 1 - Why should we all be forced to believe in so and so?
Person 2 - Because It's (add current year here)!
Person 1 - What does that have to do with anything?
