    Extremely privileged, you say? Did you go to Eton then? Were you born with incredible intellect? Did your family fund your studies at MIT or Harvard? Were you even accepted at MIT or Harvard? Did you have a circle of friends which gave you unconditional love, stood through the good and bad (you probably didn't have bad as you are privileged) for you? Did your parents give you the perfect childhood treatment with all the compassion, love, nutrition and psychological stimulus needed to produce a fit member of society? Are you of perfect weight and perfect muscle tone? Do you have a beautiful, intelligent and loving girlfriend?
    If the answer is no to most of these questions, then sod off you unprivileged plebeian :P

    They are/have been real. I agree with you though if your statement is based on 2016 Britain.

    who else has noticed that it is the white males who brand themselves with their privilege for the purpose of mocking? I feel like theyve become paranoid over their status thinking everyone thinks like that too.

    They have been real and in some places are still real, but here today this 'privilege' idea is not true.
