Microaggressions refer to subtle, often unintentional, forms of discrimination or bias that marginalize or demean individuals based on their race, gender, sexual orientation, or other aspects of their identity. In the dating realm, microaggressions can manifest in different ways.  For example, a microaggression in dating could involve making assumptions or stereotyping someone based on their race or ethnicity.  Microaggressions can

Microassaults: Using derogatory slurs or offensive language towards someone based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Patronizing Attitudes: Assuming someone with a disability is incapable or treating them with condescension instead of recognizing their abilities and autonomy.
