The phrase 'crumpled heap' comes to mind.

“DO NOT JUST SCROLL PAST THIS POST WITHOUT...” "LOOK..." "GUESS WHAT?..."

Microaggressors. You can't live with them, you can't cut them up into tiny pieces, put them in a trash bag, throw them in the trunk, drive them down to the river at night and throw them in.

But you can measure their microaggressions with linguistic analysis software. And you can give public figures and social media contacts scores based on this measurement, And you can build into your system the capability to display contacts more or less prominently based on this score. And you can measure the improvement in overall mental health that implementing a system like this would have on users.

This system would be like the capability on Facebook to hear less from a person, but you could just highlight phrases that bother you and then hear less from anyone who uses that phrase.

       Semantics loading is a pretty old sport; of course calling somebody out on it would hardly make the media, given their no small propensity for same.

       Just what we need, a way to shelter ourselves even more, lock ourselves away behind more doors, have smaller and stronger media bubbles... Let's just all sit in cribs.

       There's something to be said for cutting people out who habitually offend, but more can be said for cutting people out who are habitually offended. The habitually offended have everyone walking on eggshells, and walking on eggshells is a symptom of emotional or psychological abuse. Previously limited to individual relationships with Narcissistic and Borderline Personality Disorders, where the victim is generally Codependent and equally guilty in getting people to walk on eggshells, walking on eggshells has become a cultural phenomenon. I surprised so few talk about it in this context.
