Campus Reform has declared UNH the most microaggressed campus of the year.
The University of New Hampshire released a pamphlet on gender microaggressions that claimed such aggressions have a “detrimental impact” on women by promoting “unequal wages” and causing “higher levels of poverty.” Microaggressions, according to the university, also harm women’s physical health by causing “migraines, heart disease, [and] autoimmune disorders.” Earlier in the year, UNH published a language guide claiming the word “American” was “problematic.”
Congratulations, UNH, for being Campus Reform’s 2015 Most Microaggressed Campus of the Year.
And about that UNH pamphlet linked in the pull-quote. It is part of,
An NSF funded program to improve the climate for UNH faculty through fair and equitable policies, practices and leadership development.
That’s right. You are paying for preemptive microaggression sensitivity indoctrination/training, and not just at UNH.
Feel like reminiscing? Here’s a link on our server to the now infamous Bais-Free Langauge Guide. The guide itself is no longer accessible through the UNH website but the people behind it (and their budget) are still in place as are the ideas behind it.
And while we’re on the subject, if you or someone you know is looking for a way to express false-outrage, but from a smaller ‘footprint,’ might I suggest nano-aggressions.
