If you've ever visited an Internet comments section, chances are you've been entertained by a gay white kid and a straight black kid arguing over who has more "privilege." A quick, all caps "CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE" is the ultimate weapon for anyone who wants to declare that something is offensive simply because the person saying it was born into fewer hardships than the person who wants to shut them up. These arguments over whom has the most privilege generally involve college-educated people between the ages of 18 and 24, and while they're embarrassing for everyone involved, they're also maybe the most entertaining thing on the Internet right now. Which is why it's bitter-sweet that Gawker is finally going to settle the debate once and for all with their brilliant Gawker Priv Tournament.
