Microaggression and “I smell the blood of les tricoteuses”

Check out this symposium on microaggression featuring Scott Lilienfeld, Jonathan Haidt, Derald Wing Sue, and others in Perspectives on Psychological Science (all the papers are open access). While on a psychology note, the funniest and sadly, the most insightful tweet on this day in my feed, is from the Gadfather — shades of Trigglypuff Mk2? Aside from Gad, other notable voices of sanity that caught my eye:

I’ll make you a deal, like any other candidate

We’ll pretend we’re walking home ’cause your future’s at stake
My set is amazing, it even smells like a street
There’s a bar at the end where I can meet you and your friend
Someone scrawled on the wall “I smell the blood of les tricoteuses”
Who wrote up scandals in other bars

I’m having so much fun with the poisonous people
Spreading rumours and lies and stories they made up

. . .

With you by my side, it should be fine
We’ll buy some drugs and watch a band
Then jump in the river holding hands
