"Only a war on American soil could save the US now"

They'll soon learn the real definition of micro-aggression when tens of thousands of them are hurled their way with boomsticks

I'm a lefty too. I feel you, but my response was I will learn to do it better with what I have available. Not to complain about not pandering to the small percentage of leftys.

Indeed, I did not realize my oppression until much later in life. I just took it as a disadvantage against what was normal. Then I learned that what was normal was decided by a norm that was fostered by a conformity driven culture.


But that is just it sir, you were never at a disadvantage. You just chose to believe that "the man" was holding you down.
So many parallels to modern day that just raced right through me.

How did these snowflakes find their way out of the womb?

Life needs one of those signs like at the carnival rides, if you don't measure up to this line you cannot ride. Now get the fk out of the way, go cry on an elephant ear dipped in cotton candy fatty two stumps, people are waiting to go have fun.

You’re so smart for a Black girl.

Racist




Why is he so fat?

Statement of fact.




All-gender bathrooms are so stupid.

Opinion.

This microaggression stuff is ridiculous. What kind of conversation are these kids even allowed to have?

Careful what you wish for. You may be one of those that would not be fit to ride.

So I guess the skinny folks can get relief in the form of padding on those hard bottomed seats in the classroom? Those of us who aren't padded adequately deserve consideration also!


I'm told that a fat person can feel micro-aggressed by simply seeing a skinny person walking down the street. I bow my head in shame to think that I have caused so much anguish in my lifetime.

I prefer major aggression.

It's times like these when I think a nuke from North Korea might do us some good.



I will not disagree with you on this one

96% ?

Can you toss me a link for that information?



I'll assume you were referring to hypothyroidism which can cause weight gain and the metabolism to slow.




Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones to meet the body's needs. Body functions slow. Of the U.S. population 12 years and older, 4.6 percent have hypothyroidism. Women are much more prone to it than men.


here

So of course none of that is an excuse for even roughly 9 out of every 10 fat people you see. It's lifestyle, the poor food choices, lack of exercise, too much booze, etc. I'm not talking a few extra lbs either, but fat. Obese.

Microagression is certainly not the right word.

But, Universities probably should adapt to their customers. Instead of cramming 3000 kids into a stadium for lecture, why not run concurrent half capacity lectures? Would that extra hour be too much of a burden for the professors?

Maybe some should not attend University and learn to work with their hands.

Professors are salaried for a full load (four classes), just as students pay to be a full time student. Professors do not make more if they teach more. Why would they do the extra work?

So here is the thing, at 5'10" and over 200 lbs I am considered obese by Dr's charts.
I was an athlete in JR high, and went on to theater and marching band in HS, with my PE elective being weight training (lifting).
MY HS weight at grad was 180 (obese by Dr's charts).
At my heaviest (about 260) I could fit in to college seats with no problem, as well as HS seats.
So for me being 100 pounds over Dr's charts; if I could fit easily into college seats how big are these folk who are upset over the seat size?

ETA: I have never had a Dr. tell me I should loose weight.


HOLY CHIT, I think I just found my doppelganger. Same height, same weights, HS band(concert), and on the HS power lifting team. I also had no issues sitting in college even at 230lbs.

Calling it now, you just hurled a nano aggression, the freckled albino kid brother of micro.

Nothing nano about it.

I'm saying you may be one of those that may not be worth pushing out.

But you would support that, right?

So in other words, those that do not conform to the progressive snowflake programming are "deplorables" to you?

Do squats and stop whining.

Fat isn't something to be proud of.


Aye, but from 2012-2016 fat was beautiful.

Only now as school starts up are we back to fat being bad again.


I took it to mean that fat is normal, and the seats are discriminating against it.

Where are these SJW weirdos when it comes to economy class international 13 hours flights. Oh, they don't fly.. I forgot.
