How do you react to microagressions?
Recently I was interacting with some of my more distant relatives, and much heteronormativity was to be had by all. Some just don’t know me that well and compliment me by saying that, “girls like that sort of thing”. And then there’s the comment, “You could always adopt,” which is annoying for reasons that are difficult to explain.
I don’t really react to any of these sorts of things. Sometimes I fantasize about saying something mean, but it’s probably for the best to not actually say it.
