This week I wanted to talk about microaggressions associated with the LGBTQ+ community. Microaggressions is a term used to describe insults and dismissals towards a specific ethnicity, group or community. This is an entity that is now being used in the Q community with the intention to insult and or dismiss those who identify as a part of LGBTQ+ women and men. To mention a few of these microaggressions is what I would like for readers to take notice of and do a self examination of your bias’. Thoughts or comments such as the use of heterosexist or transphobic terminology, endorsement of heteronormative or gender normative culture and behavior, assumptions of universal LGBTQ experiences and assumption of sexual pathology/abnormality. Do you participate in these thoughts or have you made comments that this blog describes? If the answer is no, good for you! If the answer is yes, perhaps now is the time to evaluate your contribution to society as a whole. Perhaps by doing so the idea of inclusiveness will come to the forefront and help you to develop into a more informed human being.
