“Many sociodemographic groups in the United States are defined by sexual orientation, disability, class, and religion; are confined to the edge of a system (cultural, social, political, and economic); and may experience exclusion, inequality, and social injustice. When microaggressions make their appearance in interpersonal encounters or environmental symbols, they are reflections of marginality and/or a worldview of inclusion/exclusion, superiority/inferiority, desirability/undesirability, or normality/abnormality”

Well this is a pathetic attempt. Short fingered. What is the S### show of a magazine vanity fair run by morons with the intellect of small children.
Hand size! You judge people by false statements about their imagined hand size.
Take a look at 95% of all the trump photos out there and youll see that with the exception of forced perspective his fingers are normal.
Im not for or against trump but youre about as lame as tmz if your that desperate to put someone else down for your political agenda that you gotta make fun of their perceived finger length.
And people wonder why I look down on those who read and subscribe to such mentally vapid publications.
Following a meeting between a group of evangelical leaders and Donald Trump last week, Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, was interviewed by Pennsylvania pastor Michael Anthony. Dobson told Anthony that Trump had recently come “to accept a relationship with Christ” and is now a “baby Christian.”

well that explains why he really eats pizza with a fork because his hands aren't big enough to pick up a slice
LIKE MANY MARGINALIZED groups, people with disabilities (PWDs) have endured a long history of violence, oppression, and discrimination. The needs, experiences, hopes, and aspirations of PWDs are relatively
unknown, unrecognized, and underestimated (American Psychological Association [APA], 2009). Some believe that discrimination against PWDs is increasing in frequency and intensity, resulting in both physical and psycho-
logical harm for this population (Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund [LCCREF], 2009). Negative attitudes and behaviors against PWDs seem driven by distorted assumptions and beliefs about disability (Wallace, Carter, Nanin, Keller, & Alleyne, 2003). Since it is beyond the scope of this chapter to summarize the historical treatment of PWDs, we recommend some excellent summaries that can be found in tbe recent publication of the American Psychological Association titled Draft guidelines for Assessment of and Intervention zvith Individuals Who Have Disabilities (APA, 2009) and in reviews by Keller (2004), Wallace et al. (2003), and Snyder and Mitchell (2006). Readers who wish to review a more comprehensive set of resources are directed to seminal works, such as Vash (1981), Goffrnan (1963), and Zola (1982), and more contemporary writings, such as Braithwaite and Thompson (2000), Fleischer and Zames (2001), Longmore and Umansky (2001), Russell (2002), or the World Institute on Disability web site (wwrw.wid.org...). Those who would prefer to review a more theoretical perspective of disability are referred to Olkin (1999) and Pfeiffer (2001).
It’s not surprising that we are fixated on looks. Our appearance can positively and negatively affect us. Beautiful individuals make more money, earn higher grades, and are convicted at lower rates. Of course, the flipside are the costs that come with being perceived as ugly.
The patterns of advantage and disadvantage associated with appearance amount to lookism. Lookism describes the interpersonal bias and structural disadvantages that accrue to those who are often labeled unattractive, ugly, different, or “disfigured.” It amounts to yet another kind of inequality that permeates our society.
