Abstract

Microaggressions are, roughly, acts or states of affairs that express prejudice or neglect toward oppressed group members in relatively subtle ways. There is an apparent consensus among both proponents and critics of the MICROAGGRESSION concept that microaggressions are “subjective.” We examine what subjectivity amounts to in this context and argue against this consensus. We distinguish between microaggressions as an explanatory posit and microaggressions as a hermeneutical tool, arguing that in either case there is no reason at present to regard microaggressions as subjective, and that microaggressions in the hermeneutical sense should be regarded as objective.
