afflufemza
 n.— «Lying in bed the other night, cradling some seltzer water, my stomach gurgling, the word for my malaise suddenly came to me: “afflufemza,” wherein the problems of affluence are recast as the struggles of feminism, and you find yourself in a dreamlike state of reading firstperson essays about it, over and over again.» —“Rhymes With Rich” by Sandra Tsing Loh Atlantic May, 2006.
