I have been running across some really useful new words and I’d like to share them, spread them around, help them get a foothold in the language.
Narcissiverse – This refers to a somene’s personal delusional world, the only place where their fact-free assertions are true.
“Men cause all wars and women are the majority of victims!!!!”
“Where, in your narcissiverse?”
“Women are all prostitutes who live to feed off of men!!!”
“In your naricissiverse?”
Just think how often you run into this kind of thing and how useful it will be to have a term for it.

Misangyny – Have you ever seen one of those endless circular debates “Oh, that only looks like misandry; it’s really misogyny…. Oh yeah right – the man has to register for the draft but the women feels excluded, so it’s misogyny! – oh waaaaah!” when really it’s both at once, even if not equally?
Well now someone has a brand new word to cover that. Use it. Spread it.
PDWG – Privilege Denying White Girl. Pronunced “pudwag”. That’s intentional.
This is someone who is quite willing to parade her moral clarity by declaring she fully acknowledges her white privilege but emphatically denies to a moral certainty that anything like female privilege exists. She is the exact analog to Privileging Denying Dude that denies the existence of male privilege. And she is a girl rather than a woman, whatever her age, because this eternal girlhood is both a function of toxic femininity in which in our society there is no functional difference between women and gitrsl, no passage from one estate to another, and also because this attitude can exist only in a thoroughly callow, sheltered and naive worldview.
Use it. Spread it.
