The Cure for Microaggressions: Microaffections

Academia invented the scourge known as microaggressions; it has also invented the solution — microaffections:

An academic librarian at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst recently encouraged her fellow librarians to fight microaggressions by hugging students or telling them “I love you.”

According to Isabel Espinal, the school librarian for students majoring in Afro American Studies, these small acts of kindness are called “microaffections,” and can help create a more “empowering” learning experience for students of color.

The term was first presented to the public in HuffPost by University of Southern California educrat Jim Berklo. He defines a microaffection as a “a subtle but endearing or comforting comment or action directed at others that is often unintentional or unconsciously affirms their worth and dignity, without any hint of condescension.”

Removing any hint of condescension can’t be easy for liberals to pull off.

To do the most good with their microaffections, social justice warriors are encouraged to venture off the college campus and into a diverse (i.e., all black) inner-city environment, where their help raising self-esteem is most needed. Hug the first drug-dealer you find loitering on a street corner and tell him that you love him for being black. It will make the world a better place.

On a tip from J.

    yea, but in today’s liberal world if you hug someone without asking permission first you have committed sexual harassment!

    Microaggressions deserve micropunnishments!

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Ironic….bisexual actress won’t do sex scenes with gay actors to protect her health…then hangs herself.

  • saturn

    Not a good idea: Hugging them and telling them “I love you” was exactly what the Frankengroper (as Vox Day calls him) did.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    And now…..Frankfurter is gone….

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Perhaps if you engage in micro-groping or micro-fondling.

    There is, of course, micro-stalking, too.

  • JeffersonSpinningInGrave

    Your micopunishment has been decided. Are you ready to be looked at with
    a slightly sour expression? Didn’t bother you? Maybe that only works on
    snowflakes.

  • ICEvictim

    by hugging students or telling them “I love you.” <— sexual predators!!

  • JeffersonSpinningInGrave

    Minus the “I love you,” one of my fellow teaching assistants in grad school hugged an upset student, just instinctively trying to comfort her. That small act of kindness damn near ruined his life.

  • NotKennedy

    Not quite gone.

  • SolidusRaccoon

    G on, give that rabid dog a big hug!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • BPatMann

    Who made you the Spanish Inquisition? At least it’s not the comfy chair.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Yes, but I would say well done.

  • MAS

    “It will make the world a better place”

    To a degree, the hood gots no sympathy for these types and probably will eliminate some. Thus making the world a slightly better place…

  • MAS

    It can come from anywhere, that’s why nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition…

    You there! Microagressor! Hang your head and look contrite for 35 seconds!

  • Frank

    She won’t get syphilis of the tonsils now, will she?

  • Frank

    Will poor old Conyers be indicted for attempted assault with a dead weapon?

  • Jester

    So basically, this is the librarian’s indirect way of supporting Weinstein, Franken, Lauer, etc, etc?

  • magic1114

    Microaffections? I think I’m gonna puke…

  • Mr. Freemarket

    I’m sure he has difficulty rising to the occasion.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    I’m getting all choked up.

  • Area man

    Typical self-obsessed libtard thinking….. thinking anyone wants to hug their flea-bitten unbathed matted hair patchouli smelling self, and second thinking that it will fix what is wrong with the idiot snowflakes who have nothing better to do than constantly assess how they are feeling and have to let the entire world know anytime the needle deviates from “deliriously happy” to “slightly annoyed”!

  • bobdog19006

    I wonder if they would consider kissing my ass a “microaffection”?

  • BiffWellington

    So that’s what Franken was doing…..I see.

    Geat – Defeat “micro-agression” by sexual harassment!

    Little known fact: Linda Lovelace’s grandmother died trying to go down on the Titanic.

    Touche, you perverted bugger!!!

    Remember the Costco greeter in ‘Idiocracy’?’Welcome to Costco.I love you.’Who knew Mike Judge was such a great prognosticator?

  • William McKinley

    Just listen to the nearest democrat if you want to predict the future of stupidity.
