Virginia Tech students collaborated to create a list of fifty “microaggressions” that students have experienced.
Students groups such as the NAACP, Muslim Student Association and Jewish Student Union collected statements that students found triggering.
The resulting campaign, called “Microaggressions: #hokiesspeakup,” started in the spring semester. Posters are strewn throughout the campus to warn students about triggering statements.
I find the whole concept of ‘microagressions’ to be triggering.
