This Video Proves That Oppressive, Offensive, And Derogatory Statements Still Pervade Our Society

The purpose of this project is to raise awareness on gender and sexuality based microaggressions in our communities. While some of these could be considered macroaggressions, the intensity and severity of some of these statements illustrate how macroaggressions are minimized in our society. It is my hope that this project provokes you to think about the assumptions that underlie these daily statements, how they attack layers of identities and are recurring acts of violence and we can all work to be more socially conscious of how our words and actions impact each other.
