You may have noticed the expression “unintentionally hilarious” entering the lexicon of XYZ writers. Its definition is as follows:
“Someone on the left being so blind to their own bias that they fail to realise that their argument exposes this bias, and reinforces a narrative counter to that of the left.”
One might even call this “unconscious bias”.
An elderly, balding Guardian writer with a history of organising and leading violent protests suggesting that a political opponent should be barred from mainstream society because he doesn’t like the people with whom his political opponent has associated;
A feminist identifying the reason women hit the wall partnerless and childless, without realising that she has actually identified the reason.
Feel free to suggest your own examples, and/or expand upon the definition. We hope it gets put to good use.
It’s your XYZ.
