Ah yes. You’ll find this one educational too – apparently not all ‘mental patients’ dress like this. Also: mummies are not really made out of toilet roll. Who knew?
Pathetic. If you can’t laugh about the dark times, then what?
If you’re interested, the next step after Micro-Aggressions is Nano-Aggressions.

“We apologize to any psycho-killers who have been unintentionally offended by this product.”
If you’re going to immolate yourself upon the pyre of hyper-sensitivity, at least trying not to upset psycho-killers has a certain logic to it.

Sinead O’Connor has threatened Miley Cyrus with legal action after accusing the controversial US star of “mocking” mental illness…
The dynamics of this confrontation are exemplary of Cathedral aggression. O’Connor, an emissary of the Cathedral, writes an open letter to leach some publicity from Cyrus. Cyrus, not being a complete idiot, senses the aggressive move that the format of an ‘open letter’ constitutes. Unwilling to be patronised she sends a two figure salute back to Sinead, alluding to her flirtation with mental illness. Sinead faines being the victim and calls in the lawyers, but is of course in reality backed by the moral superiority – and power – of the Cathedral.
Of course when Sinead O’Connor tore up a picture of the Pope on live television it wasn’t offensive, because, as everyone knows, Catholics are all paedophiles anyway, so it’s OK to offend them.
See also Ed Miliband Vs The Mail, in which Ed assumes poor victim status in order to attack the mighty Mail (when in reality he has the full force and moral might of the Cathedral behind him and all the mail has is a readership of hopeless plebs, frustratingly uneducable in the nuances of counterintuative Cathedralized morality).
