An Ithaca College student praising a system that would allow anonymous reporting of students who commit “microaggressions” on campus:
“It helps to make people think a little more before they do or say something,”
QT Abridged Too Far Dictionary of the English Language:
microaggression noun 1. a form of unintended discrimination caused by behavior or expression. 2. typically slight in nature. 3. such as the UCLA professor accused of microaggression with “ideological implications” because he pointed out the incorrect capitalization of the word “indigenous” in a student paper. 4. so the Ithaca student has a point. 5. professors and students should be careful before talking. 6. probably best to avoid saying anything at all. 7. because a university works best when people keep their ideas to themselves.
