“Microaggressions”, “Trigger Warnings”, and the New Meaning of “Trauma”

Very good piece on the mystifying phenomenon of ‘microaggression.’ I agree with this guy. Trauma is not micro. If you’re upset by minor things that’s sad. But to blow them up into ‘trauma’ is to demean not only the denotation of the word, but the suffering of those who actually know what trauma feels like. Grow up, get tough, live a good life.

  1. Read that yesterday, and LOVED it.

    Frankly, I’m getting sick of a world where everyone thinks they should be wrapped up in bubble wrap. The real world doesn’t give a damn about your hangups. It doesn’t.

    Time to put on your big girl/big boy pants and move the F on.
