Microaggression is a power word for social justice warriors everywhere. As its name suggests, it literally means that the tiniest thing can trigger a sensitive snowflake in this day and age, whether it's using color words to describe things other than people ("red light" instead of "stop light"), or referring to a female writer as an "author" instead of an "authoress."
The term has been in existence since the 70s, where it was generally used to describe anything mean being said to a black person by a non-black person (black on black word violence was okay), but it was hijacked by modern feminists and SJWs and used as a tool to support their money-making harassment industry, as well as their fight to put women and minorities above heterosexual white men, under the guise of fighting for equality.
