Micro aggressions are you fucking serious?

I don't understand why people asking where you're from is offensive. It shows they're curious about you. Aren't you proud to show off your heritage?

Micro aggressions are what happens when people feel entitled to not getting their feelings hurt in their safe spaces and get butthurt at anything that could remotely deal with gender or race or literally anything. Micro aggressions are what happens when our society becomes too PC. Stop embarrassing yourselves and this nation with your butt sore attitude

Seriously, while not 100% of the case, certainly, some of it might be a case of "you take offense to what you choose to take offense to". I get asked the "birthplace" question all the time. I know what they mean, I know they don't mean any harm - they just don't know how to phrase it.

the word "microaggression" is triggering in an of itself. what a load of bullshit ppl grow up

The usual one for any POC: "So where are you from?" "Chicago." Luckily my client usually leaves it at that rather than press on with the cringeworthy "No, where are you REALLY from?" forcing me to respond, "Chicago. Born and raised and spent the better part of 3 decades there. But if you mean where my ancestors are from, Taiwan." Uber drivers on the other hand... SMH

Newsflash: middle ground exists between "OMG everything's too PC these days and people should just learn to suck it up" and "there is systemic bias and everyone in the word is out to get me." Microaggressions exist, and not just on a racial/gender/sexuality level. Like dealing with different working styles, we adapt where we can by recognizing where our subconscious biases and others' biases clash and modifying our behavior. It's not silly to aspire to something higher by recognizing and eliminating biases where we find them -- rather, it's silly to say "I yam who I yam and if you don't like it you're just butthurt"

"Trigger" is bullshit. Grow up and feel your feelings. I'm not going to censor myself so that you can feel better about the world around you. Microaggressions exist. The sooner you accept that, the sooner they will normalize and we won't experience them.

PC is a phrase that assholes made up to protect themselves from feeling shitty that they are being assholes by saying racist, sexist, etc things to real human beings who are not straight white boys

Don't call cultural differences between people micro aggressions. No one is being aggressive towards you by recognizing that you may come from a different background or may have a different working style. Treat everyone with respect and how you would want to be treated. That's it, there's no great mystery to it that involves white guilt or whatever else y'all are feeling to get you to be ok with the term micro aggression

like

@P2 so when people don't treat you with respect due to your background or cultural differences then what do you call it? Being an asshole?

like

"Are you in technology/computers?" " are you in sap?"

To be honest I hope you're not a man

@pwc2 i wish i could upboat u a million times, @bigDdigital the same but negatively

Genuine question, are white ppl who are honestly curious about your ethnic heritage allowed to inquire about it? If so, how?

It's annoying when someone asks "where are you from, where are you really from" for a few reasons: 1) they usually walk away after as if they are vindicated that they guessed right, and 2) not believing that I'm from somewhere in America implies that I must be a foreigner. So yes it's a micro insult. @p4, the question is why are you curious? Is it to vindicate your guessing skills like it seems to be for most people who ask, or is it to learn about cultures? If the latter you can learn about cultures naturally through getting to know someone without opening the conversation up with a question that usually turns people off.

As a leader in cyber, one of my aspirations is to increase the diversity of any organization that I am a part of.

For example…When I was in Big4, I referred several diverse candidates who are thriving & now, at McKinsey & Company, I set a personal goal to refer 1 diverse candidate, especially in (but not necessarily exclusive to) cyber/tech/IT, for every month of my tenure.

Anybody who has felt maxed out in recruitment? What do you do? Do you try other industries first but stay in recruitment or do you try to change positions with more diversity of tasks? I now feel that everything I do is the same old, and although they say I am doing a good job, it is also a constant stress daily for applicants not showing up, failing pre-employment requirements, etc and I wonder if this is also present in other areas of HR.

What do you wish design students would learn in school to ease the transition into needs of business? I have seen an increasing need for more education/inclusion/overlap into other areas of business that depend on design teams so they understand what goes into the process. As well as design teams into the other business teams. This would alleviate tensions and improve quality product delivery due to the major miscommunications that occur so frequently.

Ending this belief in our unerring exceptionalism might actually be the thing that saves us. There’s a lot we can learn from the success of other countries (be in healthcare, education, infrastructure investment), but for a long time we turned a blind eye to it because “we are the best”. Countries like Germany, which don’t endlessly praise their own history, have been liberated from the constraints of the past and have been able to make far healthier societies.
