Feds Fund University Study on “Gender Microaggressions”

Written by 

From FreedomProject Media:

Despite carrying more than $20 trillion in debt and some $200 trillion in unfunded liabilities, the federal government has decided that spending more of your money studying critically important things like “gender microaggressions” in engineering must go on. And so, the taxpayer-funded “National Science Foundation” just announced a quarter-million dollar grant to some nutty professors at the Iowa State University to investigate the alleged problem.

What in the world is a “gender microaggression?,” you might be wondering. And you're not alone. Normal people, of course, do not worry about “gender microaggressions,” at least in part because they are out making an honest living, producing wealth, paying taxes for politicians to squander on “microaggression” studies, caring for their families, and more. But in the bubble of insanity that passes for American “education,” obsessing over “microaggressions” is all the rage today.

For normal people who do not follow the lunacy their taxes finance on college campuses, here is the definition of a “microaggression” from Merriam-Webster Dictionary: “a comment or action that subtly and often unconsciously or unintentionally expresses a prejudiced attitude toward a member of a marginalized group.” A “gender microaggression,” presumably, involves a “microaggression” perpetrated against somebody over their “gender.”

Basically, the tax-funded legions of social-justice warriors, in need of more tax money to continue living large without doing anything productive, have developed a whole tax-funded industry around these imaginary slights. And according to the abstract for the new tax-funded microaggression, studying microaggressions in engineering should supposedly somehow “contribute to diversifying engineering programs.”
