Microaggression: “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color.”

Basically what a Microaggression is, is a way for whiney social justice warriors to twist any action or word spoken by a straight white male into an act of racism, sexism, or homophobia. It isn't just a ridiculous ideology, it is an outrage that they are actually teaching this nonsense in American universities.

Here are a couple of examples of what these people consider "microaggressions":

"I think the best person should get the job."
"Where are you really from?"
"You speak great English."
"You are so articulate."

I put together a video lining out some of this nonsense. Be careful what you say, you might be a racist homophobe.

What do you guys think? Is everyone running around being racist scumbags without even knowing it, or is this just more regressive insanity?

Sissification of an entire culture.

Microaggressions are just a way to legitimize being a whiner.

You also have to add

You look tired is somehow sexist

You look pretty is also sexiest, unless you say it to a guy who thinks he's a women, then you are tolerant

If you are constantly worrying about the words you convey to others, you have NO BUSINESS calling the Constitution into your debates, discussions or everyday interactions. You ARE POINT BLANK a cowardly, spineless and overly fragile child. GROW THE F# UP AND STAND YOUR GROUND.

If you don't like what you read or hear, simply ignore it and move on. The more you debate it, argue it, etc.. the more you make a mockery of the LAW and it starts to splinter apart into meaningless tangents that don't hold any water to the BOLD FACE WORDING OF THE CONSTITUTION.

I will say what I want, when I want without any regard to others precious sensibilities. THAT is the 1st Amendment. You don't like that, welcome to the 2nd Amendment.

YES... It should be that serious for many infringements because words without actions is what every manipulative, conniving, self-serving piece of s# is counting on you to do.....to fold in the face of opposition to what gives them the right to oppose.

Political correctness is s#.....will always be s#... and the more it is allowed to fester in our society, the weaker society will become as a whole. If you're timid about exercising your rights, you seriously need help.

Seems like more whiny crap. Then again, what doesn't in the past few years?

My fiancee is Slovenian. She's extremely articulate and her English is better than most Americans with only a hint of accent after spending only 6 months in the UK and another few in the US. If someone says something along the lines of "your English is so good" or "you are so articulate" it makes her entire god damned day.

Does that mean that my sweet little future wife has a bigger pair than a large segment of the male population? Or does it just mean she's thankful for a compliment on something she's worked extremely hard on? Probably both.

The more I read lately the more I find myself shaking my head. I'm going to end up with self induced whiplash soon if people don't get into the habit of letting 2 or 3 brain cells rub together and create a spark or two before they open their mouths/post things online.
