Folks, there’s literally nothing you can do or say now that isn’t considered a “microaggression.”
The left – especially in academia – have made it literally impossible for anybody who isn’t a white male to exist in this world without being able to claim some form of intolerance and aggression. Assault, even.
In a guide published by New York’s New School, they run down the list of what all of us now know are the new “microagressions.” We’ve talked about them before, saying things like “you speak well for a black person,” and “you throw well for a girl,” are pretty clearly dumb things to say.
But now that we’ve accepted that, the left is going to take it one step further.
On the list of thigs that students can now consider a “microaggression” include “only readings from white cisgender men,” “faculty not asking for gender pronouns,” “professors choosing very expensive books and materials for classes,” being called “overly sensitive” when talking about microaggressions and my personal favorite:
“Seats in the classroom / auditorium / office are too small for many people.”
Let’s be clear. The New School in New York is claiming that it is a microaggression to not have seats large enough to accommodate fat students. It’s perhaps the most insane claim I’ve heard to date.
But the guide doesn’t stop at microaggressions. No, they’ve invented some new terms. There’s microassault, microinsults and microinvalidations. Literally everyone can be offended everywhere at any time now!
So what are some examples of these new terms? They claim that holding a meeting in a place that isn’t wheelchair accessible is a “microinvalidation,” getting onto a subway car and sitting as far as possible from a homeless person is a “microassault” and asking lesbians how they engage in sexual intercourse is a “microinsult.”
Of course, now that everything is a “micro,” it’s the duty of New School to inform us that there’s nothing “micro” about their impact.
“The ‘micro’ in microaggression refers to the brevity and (to some) subtlety of the offense, and does not imply that these experiences are small in their harmful impact,” the guide explains. “If it impacts someone, and it’s a big deal to them, it’s not micro.”
The guide also offers students who have been micronized or … micronated … some tips for how to deal with the terrible violation.
“It is helpful in coping with daily microaggressions or bigger challenges to practice healing activities, such as yoga, meditation, fitness, healthy eating, and more,” the guide concludes, suggesting that students “join a support group or other identity/affiliation group to connect with others who understand you better, and seek counseling and other mental health services when you feel overwhelmed.”
These students – these ones who are microscopically being deconstructed into helpless children – these are the ones who will be running this world in 20 or 30 years.
