Little scientific evidence microaggressions are real!

Our snowflakes have been fed a line from their teachers and professors. They are led to believe that anything that offends them is an assault on them.

After reviewing many studies on the topic, Dr. Lilienfeld argues in his paper “Microaggressions: Strong Claims, Inadequate Evidence”  that microaggressions lack scientific proof, and therefore should not be included in workplace or campus diversity training.

Moreover, he said he believes that the term microaggression is misleading, as it implies conscious intent to harm, and thus should be abandoned.

“The scientific status of the microaggression research program is far too preliminary to warrant its dissemination to real-world contexts,” he writes in his 2017 scholarly article published in Perspectives on Psychological Science.
