Multiple Regression Of Microaggression
It would be informative to perform a multiple regression analysis of the demographics of individuals who submit anecdotes to microaggression websites of how they have been victimized:
I'm not going to do it, but, as Yogi Berra said, you can observe a lot just by watching. From reading over examples, I would guess that common factors would seem to be:
- Female (or "'female'" or "female-identified" or "female-bodied")
- The more recondite the self-described orientation, the better: e.g., a "genderqueer" is more likely to complain about being victimized by microaggressions that is a "lesbian."
- Mixed race
- Visually ambiguous race
- Belong to an ethnicity with a high degree of immigration
- But, born in the USA
- Employed in the (nominally) helping professions, but not the real helping professions, such as nursing (see below for nurses' and doctors' attitudes)
- Mental and emotional illnesses
- Generally hostile personality
As a palate-cleanser, allow me to direct you a page of Medical Acronyms and Doctor's Slang. Examples of what doctors, especially Emergency Room doctors, write in their notes include:
- AHF - Acute Hissy Fit
- AAA (or Triple A): Ay Ay Ay. Precursor to Status Hispanicus. Wound-up Hispanic female unable to tolerate even the small discomfort of removing an adhesive plaster, but not yet full-blown histrionics.
- Acute Pneumoencephalopathy - airhead
- APRS - Acute Puerto Rican syndrome (bouts of screaming and yelling)
- Blade - Surgeon: dashing, bold, arrogant and often wrong, but never in doubt
- BVA - Breathing Valuable Air
