LOL are you just trying to disagree with EVERYONE? :)


This sounds like the "outrage" you are complaining about below.

I think the university is in the wrong. (Unless there are more facts that are very, very different from what I have read and heard.)

On the subject of microaggressions themselves, and NOT the case: yes, I have a problem with microaggressions too, because where do you draw the line, and who decides what is and is not one? But decent people are usually interested in how to not be an a**hole to other people. Should you be punished for being "rude" without some additional harm? No, clearly that's idiotic. But I can see why students -- especially medical students -- would be curious to learn about ways that they might unintentionally be causing offense to patients or colleagues.

This is spiraling, though. I have no doubt that someone is now going to willfully misinterpret what I just said as saying that students should be expelled for committing microaggressions. That's not at all what I'm saying, and that's not why he was expelled. He was expelled for challenging a concept in a manner that professors and a dean thought was overly aggressive. It sounds like bs to me, without knowing more, especially when one of the professors accuses him not of actually saying something, but of conveying aggression with his "body language."
