    I hate everything about the young turks. Apparently one cannot measure threatening or geeky in this scenario, and even if so it's not relevant, but at ~4:20 he mentions an attractive blonde and goes over how relevant that description is. What a joke channel.

    "Check your privilege" is basically just the ethos version of an ad hominem. It's not a usable argument, and it just makes you look like an ass to say it.

    To translate: you're basically saying, "You can't possibly have a logical and valid argument because of your demographic status." Which makes absolutely no sense, since demographic status has no relevance in logical arguments.
