Over the past few decades, our society has made great leaps towards equality and justice. It used to be that prejudiced white people would be afraid when they enter a room full of African Americans and People of Colour. Now, this type of racism no longer occurs due to actions by activists like Martin Luther King. However, subtle, unconscious racism still manifests in the form of microaggressions. Microaggressions are harmful because the aggressor isn't aware of them and they make minorities feel unwelcome.

Take, for instance, when a Person of Colour enters a room full of white people. Xe would understandably be afraid of racism, making xem uncomfortable. Yet the white people are not counciously being racist.

Also take, for example, when a christian exists. Christianity makes Atheists feel uncomfortable because christians think that Atheists will all go to hell. Thus, christianity's existence is a microaggression against Atheism.

Due to the harms of microaggressions, it is impertinent that we prosecute microaggressors. One way of doing that would be to implant a microchip into the fore-brain of potential microaggressors. When they attempt to commit a microaggression, the microchip sends an electrical signal to stop them from committing it. Then, it communicates to authorities, who would promptly arrest them for re-education.

By complaining about microaggressions, we are making the lives of People of Colour better. One way this is true is because by having microaggressions enter the spotlight, White Nationalists would have their notion that freedom of speech is being censored for political correctness proven right, causing backlash and more racism. Another reason is that the backlash from censoring microaggressions would tear apart our society and pit the "victims" against the "aggressors", reducing unity. A final reason is that by publicizing microaggressions, we take time away from discussing about issues like the "bamboo ceiling" and real harrassment cases. As you can see, criminalizing microaggressions would make the world much more equal, with some of it more equal than others.

A satire always contains exaggeration. You're pretending I'm saying my parody is a perfect representation of the target of criticism.

Ahhh, suspected it was satire, but poe's law still stays on the internet and it boggles me to this day.

I thought it was obvious.

My post was self contradictory:

It used to be that prejudiced white people would be afraid when they enter a room full of African Americans and People of Colour.

Take, for instance, when a Person of Colour enters a room full of white people. Xe would understandably be afraid of racism, making xem uncomfortable.

And I listed the problems of fixating on microaggressions:

Another reason is that the backlash from censoring microaggressions would tear apart our society and pit the "victims" against the "aggressors", reducing unity.

Yes, I did presume that it would have been satire over full out mental breakdowns, but with the kind of people on this site, one can truly never know until the writer confirms it fully.

I do agree though. I take microagressions microseriously.

Luckily this is satire so it has not yet happened, but I fear we are getting close. Is it bad that I hope an actual war (either small or big) to happen? If it were, these people wouldn't have the time to complain about it.

One bad step for comedy, one giant trip into the correct.

I smell a slippery slope fallacy. There's no way we will implant electrodes into your brain. Okay, maybe less invasive ones, but it's not going to be as bad as described. We only want equality and fairness and affirmative action and quotas and no microaggressions, nothing more. We aren't limiting free speech, we are limiting anti-feminist hate speech with electrodes.
