So often, I catch myself doing this thing. In fact, just about every woman I know does it. I’m not sure if this is an exclusively female phenomenon or not but I can’t say I know many men who do it with the frequency that the women in my life seem to. It’s like a variant of the fallacy of relative privation.
A fallacy of relative privation is basically the notion that we shouldn’t even care about certain things, because other things are far more concerning. Issue A isn’t as bad as Issue B, so you shouldn’t be concerned over Issue A.
