Microaggressions as Opposed to Simple Kvetching


Microaggressions Klavan?  I think this is a new term for thin skinned nitwits who do not have real problems in their life to be upset about.  Go here for some additional examples.  My personal favorite:


A Facebook friend posted a picture of a PSA billboard encouraging parents to teach young boys to be respectful of women and the friend added her observation, as a teacher, that young men will meet such expectations if placed before them.

A male commenter added, “And the same can be said for young girls, when they are expected to act like ladies.” Made me feel defensive and unsafe, as though I only deserve respect if I adhere to a strict behavioral code that meets some dude’s definition of a “lady”.

The perpetually upset over nothing are always with us.  I pray that they will not experience in their lives real problems to vex them.

More to explorer


  1. When I was young we used to call it, “making a mountain out of a mole hill.”

    This is how ‘activists” destroy culture. Stupid thugs that they are, undermining everything. I am very sad for my children and grandchildren for the stinking pile of swill we are leaving them behind. I am glad I will be dead in 10 or so years. The young people seem to stupidly sensitive to see how their “educational programming” has made them dysfunctional. I do see pockets of rationality but it is not the norm.

    Those of you who think things can ever improve are in for a rough ride.

  2. Those in my generation who are optimistic will be disappointed. I am relieved that my father, who fought in World War II is not around to see America. As to the Church, the decline will be obvious and sustained.

  3. “.As to the Church, the decline will be obvious and sustained.” Yes Karl it is hard not to be sad and/or mad about that decline. I look at my own and so many others misled and then abandoned by small shallow leaders- local as well as higher up. The church knows about lots of young men led astray by homosexuals in the Church, but there is no out-reach from those priests who were such buds with him when he was in seminary, not calling or emailing – no contact from the Church- not to these young men losing their souls not to their families who have been betrayed by the Church they loved and trusted. Maybe though don’t believe he is at risk, maybe they don’t believe in hell, maybe the Church doesn’t reach out to sinners anymore, for fear of being thought judgmental.
    Right now I am watching Cardinal Dolan on EWTN – what a bag of hot air.
    When St Peter Damien pointed out (in his “Letter 31”) the sexual immorality and homosexuality among clerics, the pope supported him – unpopular as that was- and circulated that letter with strong words of his own. Even if we were to have a leader saint today like Peter Damien (or the Cistercians or Cluny) to rise to stop the decline and misdirection of the Church, would he have the support of the pope?
