Posted on 09/06/2017 2:21:52 PM PDT by Hadean
Two professors claim to have discovered a new form of politically incorrect offense called invisibility microaggressions, which are said to be even more subtle than regular microaggressions. Their proposed solution for these offenses is to get rid of meritocracy.
In social justice jargon, a microaggression is when someone say a white person asks an Asian person where theyre from. While the question isnt offensive in and of itself, the act of asking a person who may get the same question repeatedly throughout the week can be annoying and therefore offensive.
Campus Reform reported on Thursday that a recent study by two professors, Jasmine Mena, who teaches psychology at Bucknell University, and Annemarie Vaccaro of the University of Rhode Island, claim that they are the first academics to discover that invisibility is a form of microaggressions not previously described in feminist academia.
...the professors claim that the environment-based invisibility microaggressions occur when they are among the few, or only non-whites in a workplace or communal context.
Meanwhile, interpersonal invisibility microaggressions are said to hinder non-white people in everyday work roles because their ethnicity or gender is being ignored or because they dont see other non-white people there.
The participants reported campus invisibility, where non-white faculty members say they experienced invisibility for being one of the few non-white faculty members on campus.
Unlike regular microaggressions, which require at least two parties for them to occur, invisibility microaggressions only needs for one person to feel invisible in an environment. A lone black person among a sea of white faces could qualify as one of these invisibility microaggressions especially if he or she isnt singled out for being black. But if that happens, then it can possibly be a macroaggression.

Coming up soon:
The basic objective is to make it so that honkies are ALWAYS doing something wrong.
Presumably honkies will be okay when they’re all dead.
Be dead and you’re okay.
Eventually getting to Femto-Agressions............
Soon to be followed by phantom microaggressions, imagined microaggressions, retroactive microaggressions, prescient microaggressions, future microaggressions, intuitive microaggressions, what the tar microaggressions, ironic microaggressions, hyposonic microaggressions, infrared microaggressions, ....
It’s no wonder people bury their faces in their Smartphones.
There is no way to communicate without offending someone.
If the snowflakes get some sort of thrill out of being offended, just pop off to me...there won’t be any “micro”, “Macro”, “Nano”, or invisible aggressions, I’ll just say it straight out.
I won’t spend my life walking on eggshells around these assholes.
It all makes me want to get macro-aggressive.
Sounds like they want to bring back segregation. With private education, they could go to schools of their choice, with few or zero big, hulking white men, or big, hulking men of any race.
As for me, I’d like my children to go to a school where people are judged by the content of the character, rather than the color of their skin. We’ve spent 200 plus years making the principles of the Declaration real. Sure as hell I’m not going back to the days where the accident of a man’s birth determines his destiny.
“a microaggression is when someone say a white person asks an Asian person where theyre from”
“a “macroaggression” is when someone, say a white person, asks an Asian person if he got his buck teeth and slanted eyes from beating off”
You should not ask this question.
When people make you feel like Chevy Chase playing golf, that’s a Na-na-na-na-na-na-nagression...
Need a new name for these guys beside snowflake. I wonder how they would handle being called baby killer and war criminal by John Kerry?
These spoiled, limp-wristed snowflakes do not know what it’s like to really suffer.
They keep this crap up and they will eventually find out.....................
It really is no-win. If you ignore them, you're guilty of elitism. If you draw attention to them, you're patronizing. Either way you're a racist.
I seriously question whether these kind of campuses will remain viable. The only "safe space" might be either a parochial or segregated college. I predict a white flight - probably from college altogether. Luckily nowadays there are other, and more lucrative, alternatives.
I think a macroagressive punch in the nose is in order for these twits.
depends on where you’re buried. If you are white, buried in a traditionally black area, that could be a post-mortem aggression.
Observe or inquire about their ethnicity or gender, they're pissed. Ignore their ethnicity or gender, they're pissed.
I'm seeing a pattern.
If your white own business leaves that’s **white flight**.
On the other hand:
If you locate a business there then that’s **gentrification**.
