Emory University Professor Says Microaggressions Don’t Exist

Emory University Professor Says Microaggressions Don’t Exist

“He suggests the term be relegated to the wastebasket of words.”

Congratulations to this professor for committing what amounts to academic heresy.

University Professor Says ‘Microaggressions’ Don’t Exist

Psychology professor Scott Lilienfeld of Emory University doesn’t mean any offense, but he says the concept of “microaggressions” even existing is nonsense, reports The College Fix.

The title of Lilienfeld’s paper says it all: “Microaggressions: Strong Claims, Inadequate Evidence.” He argues that microaggressions are grounded in fiction, not fact, lack any scientific proof — and should not be part of any workplace or campus diversity training.

He suggests the term be relegated to the wastebasket of words.

“The scientific status of the microaggression research program is far too preliminary to warrant its dissemination to real-world contexts,” Lilienfeld wrote in a current issue of Perspectives on Psychological Science.

In an interview with The College Fix, he said he became fascinated with the world of microaggressions because he heard the term referenced everywhere he went from colleges to corporations, and few people bothered to question its veracity.

“I began reading the literature, and became more curious and more concerned when I realized that there was hardly any evidence supporting the concept of microaggressions,” Lilienfeld said.

Progressives don’t need evidence, they just have to believe it’s a part of their religion.

Like Global Warming™, for instance.

Common sense like this will get a Psychology prof into hot water. I expect some of the faculty and a mob of students will try to get him silenced or fired. Students will say that his comments are terribly offensive to their feelings, since they are incapable of dealing with facts. Let’s watch and see if his lectures are disrupted by a bunch of rude, over-entitled students.

Microaggressions do exist, but everyone else calls them by their real name – life.

I have often said that “microaggressions are most acutely felt by macropussies.” It is true.

I am copyrighting that….

The plan of the left is the redefinition of language.
