My Handicap by Tammy S. Thomas

My handicap does not define me I am not a monster,

No need to be afraid of me

 

You do not have to whisper

You do not have to even point and stare

Speak to me I dare

I promise you, I will not bite

 

I am stronger than you think if Just get to know me

My handicap does not define me

 

We could become great friends and not enemies

Let us learn from each other

 

In addition, inspire those that are in the unknown

Let the world know they don’t have to be afraid,

 

That being handicap does not define you

microAGGRESSION

In this new hard hitting anthology by Creative Talents Unleashed, authors from around the world pour out their experiences of ‘Microaggression’.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as “A comment or action subtly and often unconsciously expressing a prejudiced attitude towards a member of marginalized group”

Derald Wing Sue defines Microaggression as “ The brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial, gender, and sexual orientation, and religious slights and insults to the target person or group”

In today’s society we are all a part of, whether we like it or not; we are forever scrutinizing our dialogue and conversation, looking out for offensive and insulting content. Today, words don’t just insult, they also inflict verbal violence with long lasting psychological effects, causing unimaginable inner conflict and problems with forming healthy personal relationships.
