Mansplain by Adam Levon Brown

(From a queer male)

 

Soap box mansplaination

of phallic proportions

Spitting objective rhetoric

faster than lightning strikes

root

Lack of empathy manifested

in constant back-talk and talking

over

Micro-aggression coffee stains

inhabit his pale-white shirt

While he rambles on and on

about how his views matter more.

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.
