Microaggressions, whitey's new source for manufactured outrage.

Moderators: Tempo Gain, TheGingerMan

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

PseudomicroagressiveMcWankers. I've coined a new term! :thumbsup:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I realize that guy in Japan wrote a compelling article that many of us can relate to, but I just can't buy into every stupid thing that happens here that I may not particularly like to be some nefarious plan to annoy or intimidate me by the collective masses.

I had a bit of constipation this morning, is my GI tract 'microaggressing' me? Ya know, I'd almost prefer it if I couldn't poop at all, at least I'd know where I stand, but this little bit now, and struggle for a bit later, that is borderline evil, I see through its facade, and I know it is fucking with me!

No matter where you are in the world there are aggressive acts towards everyone all the time. It is called life. I'd much rather have someone tell me their surprise to my advanced chopsticking skills than pull up their shirt and show me the handle of a gun in their underwear, and I'd much rather have someone tell me my Chinese is good in small chat than to have some fat annoying bitch yell "excuse me Sir" in a rude manner to get my attention because I was not standing in the right place in a public space back home.

This need for constant outrage that we so often seek is fucking pathetic. We have the run of the house for the most part here in Taiwan and people want to continue to dwell on absolutely asinine shit and act offended like we are victims of some subtle mind game which is equal to or worse than overt racism.

The fuck out with that nonsense!

You want some aggressive treatment, come back in your next life as an Indonesian and clean toilets 6 and 1/2 days a week for some ungrateful fuck who truly doesn't respect you or your culture and then cry me a river.

Life in Taiwan is good for whitey, and those who think otherwise would complain about anything, anywhere.

OMFG! This original post was not temped by the mod! :bravo: :bravo: :bravo: :bravo:

For those who do (and are still) complain(ing), please, do yourself a favor and see what "reverse racism" is doing to your respective home countries (that's "affirmative action" for those that are still in the dark).

Be glad you're in the 'wan, for Christ sake. Boohoohoo...that Chinese guy won't speaka to me in Hakka.

For heaven's sake, they're absolutely every-bloody-where, especially now that the weather's smouldering up. Slender, shapely, silky-smooth legs, naked from ankle to upper thigh, exposed to within mere millimeters of pert posterior protrusions, brazenly showcasing their heavenly conjunction at the cloven mound of amour. They suck at my attention, work me up into a frenzy of lust, and tease me with their irresistible allure.

But I, as a man enchained in marriage, am precluded from attaining enjoyment of them except with my eyes. All I can do is leer, salivate, pant, fantasize, and empty my excitement into a tissue.

Why do they need to torture me so cruelly? What have they got against me? Is it because I’m a man? Are they deliberately flinging my maleness into my face as a way to assert their feminine identity, their pride in belonging to a sisterhood on the better side of an untraversable divide?

Why, oh wailingly and plaintively why, must I have to suffer as a victim of this inhumane discrimination, this soul-asphyxiating display of their themness pitted so rawly and aggressively against my otherness?


Oh shit. You, sir, have pulled all the words right outta my mouth.

This microaggression, torture, and aggravation against my 3rd leg is totally mind-numbing as I sit and wail on my seat in the MRT every single working day.

When will it stop????????

FWIW the term "microaggresion" was proposed in article "Racial Microaggressions in Everyday Life" authored by Asian American
http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/mic ... ryday-life

The gist of it is that there is no "nefarious plan". The "aggression" is subconscious.

BTW another view on it (another expat living in Japan)
http://kotaku.com/5907242/you-can-use-c ... ome-people

What I find ironic is that it somehow is valid for Asian Americans living in US but not for "whiteys" in Taiwan.
