I'm lazy at the moment, so don't feel like digging anything up. Who invented "microaggression", and what is to be gained by controlling it?

Nothing good, but they say it is for equality.

A Harvard psychiatrist in the 70s. I don't know what controlling it is supposed to mean.

A Harvard psychiatrist in the 70s. I don't know what controlling it is supposed to mean.

Controlling, to me, in this case, is generating a concept and then an agenda to control what people can say with impunity. I don't like what a lot of people say in this world. An example of this is how an atheist may be "offended" when s/he sneezes and a person says "Bless you!". That phrase is out there, has been for millennia. I don't take offense from its mention, I understand that it is ingrained in the culture. I say "Gesundheit", myself, but I don't bitch out someone who says "Bless you", to me when I sneeze. I don't see that as microaggression, and I don't agree with xtians who get all hissy if they aren't told "Merry Christmas", during the season. People need to get a little less touchy about what is said. That reduction would come from having the authority figures whom they follow like sheep not pushing them into it with vitriolic rhetoric. Fat chance of that. The whole point of religion is control and subjugation, via demonization of "others".

I couldn't watch the whole thing. It made me want to vomit.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
