    The UNC Chapel Hill guide, published on Thursday, covers a wide range of menacing microaggressions — which are everyday words that radical leftists have decided to be angry or frustrated about.



    Christmas vacations are a microagression, the public university pontificates, because “academic calendars and encouraged vacations” which “are organized around major religious observances” centralize “the Christian faith” and diminish “non-Christian spiritual rituals and observances.”

    Yeap, according to this woman up there, telling someone on campus that you are going on a golf outing on your Christmas vacation with your girlfriend are microagressions are in fact racist.

    Yup.

    The thing to remember about corporate jobs is that there are tons of co-workers especially females who are looking for a reason to run to H/R with a complaint and then file a claim against the company.

    The best thing is not to talk to anybody at work any more than you have to, and keep it on topic, such as about bits and bytes, or debits and credits.

    Your personal life and your vacations are nobody's business.

    Don't make friends at work. The environment is too toxic for friendship.

    These people are really fucking stupid. No wonder our educational system sucks so badly in this country as our professors do such retarded shit. These people should be fired.

    I just call them 'backhanded compliments". I'm old fashioned.


    I get this a bit, "I wish I looked like that!"

    translation : "You're a tranny. Good looking but a tranny."

    The propensity of most on the right to whine about non-issues is remarkable.

    Well, I'd like to read the source article that the Daily Caller (DC -- the blog you linked) refers to, but I cannot. Upon clicking on their link, I received the message noted below.

    Not Found

    Sorry, but the page you were trying to view does not exist. It looks like this was the result of either:
    • a mistyped address
    • n out-of-date link.

    upload_2016-6-29_3-44-32.png

    (This is DC's full link--http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format=go&jsonp=vglnk_146718647596816&key=e7609c039c08d3ae00aebd97e6f0bffd&libId=iq0jwtbg010110e3000DL47z6crjy&loc=http%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2016%2F06%2F25%2Funiversity-of-north-carolina-christmas-vacation-is-a-microagression-now%2F%23ixzz4CwoZn5fM&v=1&out=http%3A%2F%2Femployeeforum.unc.edu%2Fcareer-corner-understanding-microaggressions%2F&ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.usmessageboard.com%2Fthreads%2Fi-love-your-shoes-are-microagressions-golf-outings-and-the-words-boyfriend-also.506441%2F&title=UNC%20Chapel%20Hill%3A%20CHRISTMAS%20VACATION%20Is%20Microagression%20Now%20%7C%20The%20Daily%20Caller&txt=entitled%20%E2%80%9CCareer%20corner%3A%20Understanding%20microaggressions%E2%80%9D)​

    I can't say much about the photo you pasted into your post other than that its source is noted as this: http://ccli.unc.edu/files/2013/07/DSC00771.jpg. I see what appears to be a July 2013 date in the hyperlink, and the publication date on the DC post is 26-June-2016. You don't even cite the woman's name. Neither does the DC post, which, moreover, does not contain the photo you included in your OP.

    I see multiple returns from a Google search for "career corner understanding microaggressions," which is purportedly, according to the DC, the document in which UNC:
    • "instructs students that Christmas vacations and telling a woman “I love your shoes!” are “microagressions.”
    • "identifies golf outings and the words “boyfriend” and “girlfriend” as microagressions"
    The curious confluence of observations above lead me to ask:
    • Is it just a matter of coincidence that the story no longer exists on UNC Chapel Hill's website, assuming it even did just a couple hours ago when you created this thread?
    • In light of the newness of the DC post, I have to wonder just where the DC writer got their story.
    • Is there even an actual source for the post's remarks? Is there even such a guide as the one the DC cites?
    • Is the woman whom you've pictured even an academician, researcher, or administrator at UNC rather than merely a factotum in the school's employ?

    Not surprisingly, there's nothing at the Daily Caller's link.

    Rock on.

    I apologize to all those who were offended when I opened my gifts on Christmas morning.

    I didn't realize how insensitive I was being.

    I won't let that happen again.

    It's SOP at the Daily Caller. It's one of the most fucked up rightwing propaganda sites out there.
