Words Constituting Microaggressions Proliferate Explosively

Authoritarians require criminals to punish. Thought criminals are in short supply, liberal attempts to generate hatred toward preferred groups through outrageously unjust favoritism (e.g., Affirmative Action, reparations) having largely failed. So they resort to the concept of microaggressions, the list of which must constantly expand.

As usual, universities are at the vanguard of moonbattery. As reported by the New York Post, taxpayer-supported Michigan State University has issued an Inclusive Guide listing words that have been deleted from the Newspeak Dictionary and therefore constitute microaggressions.

Many of the forbidden terms apply to the War on Christmas, which has expanded to Easter. They include: merry, Christmas trees, wreaths, gifts, reindeer, bunnies, eggs (in an Easter context), and chicks.

Other forbidden terms reflect the thin skin of educrats and campus activists: crazy, insane, bonkers, nuts, loony, and lunatic.

“Terrorist” is banned, presumably because it might offend the ghost of Osama bin Laden or Audrey Hale. “Freshmen” and “upperclassmen” are no good, because students must avoid “male-centric and western father-son language.” Meanwhile, “female” made the list because it is a “pejorative term [that] reduces women to their assumed biological anatomy.” The word “America” is banned because it is “American-centric.”

MSU has plenty of company:

Other schools with similar lists include Indiana University at Bloomington, the University of Texas at Austin, Brandeis University and the University of San Francisco.

The disfavored words are not literally banned, but there might be consequences for using them.

It isn’t only students who must live in fear of committing microaggressions. From Easthampton, Massachusetts:

Superintendent finalist Vito Perrone said Friday that the School Committee rescinded its offer to hire him in executive session Thursday night, alleging that the reason was a perceived microaggression contained in an email he sent to the committee chairperson.

The committee had offered him an annual salary of $151,000/year to be an educrat. But then he deviated from permissible vocabulary when he sent an email to committee members Cynthia Kwiecinski and Suzanne Colby in which he referred to them as “ladies.”

Evidently they are not ladies, but moonbats.

According to Perrone, Kwiecinski said that using “ladies” was a microaggression and “the fact that he didn’t know that as an educator was a problem,” he said.

Respect and courtesy can now cost you a cushy job.

No matter how bad they make a situation, liberals can always make it worse still. Inevitably, Big Government will get involved, imposing fines if not prison terms for committing oppression by saying “ladies” or “Christmas tree.”

It is already a crime to call illegal immigrants “illegal immigrants” in New York City.

In France, a woman was just fined $13,000 for calling resident Emmanuel Macron “filth” in a Facebook post. That wasn’t even racist, sexist, or ableist.

Considering how fast forbidden words proliferate, fining them could represent the most promising revenue-raising opportunity for Big Government since carbon offsets — although it is less efficient than the current Democrat practice of simply printing as much money as they want and letting us pick up the tab through inflation.
