“So and so ignored my lived experiences!”
As opposed to what? Dead experiences? One cannot have experiences unless one lives. Even the term “first-hand experience” seems silly. Until such time as one can occupy various vantage points, this term is nonsensical.
“This is my experience,” “I have had that experience,” “I have once experienced…,” etc.
Am I the only one to notice that internet jargon seems to be less than the sum of its parts, that it reaches below the common denominator?
It is time for us to drop this increasingly clownish jargon from our language.
