Mods, I feel that this post is very aggressive. Please punish this person for showing a human emotion that isn't happy unicorns crapping rainbows (yes, that is now a human emotion because I said so and you aren't allowed to hurt my feelings by telling me it's not.)

Also, I have to go number 2 and it's really.dark upstairs and I need someone to wipe me. After wiping away my tears brought on by this macro aggressive post, of course.

The microagression is falsified. It assumes an aggressor. But all the pain is self-inflicted. Rather, it's micro-self-flagellation. Or it is a blatant attack on the language.

i has the perfect " antidote " for allegations of micro-aggression - full on ultra-violence

lets face it no one cares about your alledged micro agression when you have just chopped off the cockwombles arms and legs

Let me filter what you just said, just to make it safe. . . . .

Don't intentionally be an asshole. That advice includes being offended by innocuous comments.

dang it, man. Once again you beat me to the post.



This next macroaggression is aimed at anyone ( including my socialist exgf) stop! Just... stop. You aren't that clever. You aren't that smart... You aren't even pretty. Just stop.

Be you. The not clever, not smart, not pretty you that's about to do something spectacular. Right after you quit blaming others for holding you back


Sigh

I have given this very concept much contemplation over the last couple of months.

My real life is very affected by the current take on immigration.

So, I must be "mindful" of my opinion and expression of said opinion when it comes to the immigrants with whom I work on a daily basis. I have augmented my expression, but not my opinion on the topic.

I was always the "nice guy". I was satisfied by finishing last, so to speak.

Now, I just want them to know the truth, weather we reach agreement or not, how I feel.

This realization and subsequent action has cost me financially, and has affected the security of my job... This is a job that I have had over the last decade.

I don't care if I lose it. I am sick of censoring my thoughts for the purpose of accommodation. I'm supposed to just enable these people to take a western view without ever being subject to western ethic.

Well, I disagree with that, I am making a stand, and I will suffer the ramification.

I refuse to submit to the special snowflake. I refuse to make a permanent change to my behavior only to accommodate a minority of melting, screaming people who only fight to fight.

I love triggering them.. It usually leads to exposing their shallow, worthless causes.

No..i am not going to be careful.I refrain from calling people hurtful and insulting words,we all know what those are:'n-word',spic,kike etc.I'm not a total douche.BUT i shall Not be weighing every single word 50 times before uttering it,when i'm talking.I cannot help it if some people are so desperately feeble that they take offence at things no sane or sensible person would find offence in.I can't help it if they're effed in the head or determined to be pussified.I am not entertaining or enabling or indulging such risible claptrap,thank you very much.

This has got to be the absolute worst example you could have come up with. She's not a native English speaker and she's only been speaking English for less than a year and so naturally, people are surprised at how well spoken she is.

Now imagine that you're a native English speaker. Why would somebody be surprised by how well spoken you are? Well gee, could it be because they didn't expect you to be well spoken for some reason?

I'm not judging but that's an oddly specific metaphor.

That made me do my weird wheeze laugh. VERY specific.

I'm not big on the whole "micro-aggression" thing. It's a stupid term and completely unnecessary. We already have plenty of words to describe people saying dumb s# like this:

"I don't even think of you as (whatever)."
"You're a credit to your race."
Just about anything with the words "you people" in it or that ends with "for a (whatever)"
"you act very (whatever) for a (whatever)."
"no, I mean where are you from originally?"
"I just assumed that you'd (whatever) because you're (whatever)."

They're called insults. Presuming that the offense is unintentional is basically just coddling morons.

I agree with you guys on this one, it is going too far. It makes people too paranoid to talk to each other. Why is it good to be so sensitive that you can't handle one of those micro-aggressions? They could be honest mistakes, most likely.

I also want to add that these micro-aggressions come into play in other areas like sexism, not just racism. In fact, some girls can tend to be way too aloof and be scared off by the tiniest thing.

Actually, "whatever" in and of itself is a pretty idiotic statement.

Utter dismissal, just because.
