That our Face of Privilege Denying Dude has changed! That is for a very inspirational reason. Apparently, a certain gentleman by the name of “Edman” reads websites, and the comment sites of websites, such as the Tiger Beatdown according to his statement on the matter, and has decided to stop iStockPhoto’s campaign of cease-and-desist letters IN ITS TRACKS by volunteering his very own shining face to the meme! That’s right: You can find ALL the old Privilege Denying Dudes, but with Edman, instead of Jan, who prefers not to have such wide exposure. (WHAT WOULD TYRA THINK????) Here, Edman recreates my all-time favorite of the Privilege Denying Dude memes, encapsulating as it does every argument with every dude ever caused by you pointing out that one of his statements was a wee bit sexist:

Haha. Whee! And here’s to years of PDD yet to come.
