TEMECULA, CA—Local sixth-grader Aiden Aidensen was upset that he was denied a tattoo by the Inked Tats shop Tuesday. So, he just decided to make a life-altering, permanent decision that he's actually allowed to make without parental consent, getting gender reassignment surgery instead.
Aidensen wanted to get a tattoo, but his parents said no. So he went to the tattoo parlor, and they told him he had to be eighteen, a rule that Aidensen called "super lame" and "gay." So the youngster looked around for other things that he could do at his age.
"Can't drink, can't smoke. Oh, I could get an abortion! Oh yeah... never mind. Hey, wait a minute -- that gives me an idea!"
The sixth-grader happily walked into a nearby hospital and asked for the surgery.
"This'll show my lame parents who won't let me get a Fortnite neck tattoo," he said happily as he jumped into a hospital bed at Rancho Vista Medical Center. "Hack away, doc!"
In the social justice system, words are considered violence. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious attacks are members of an elite squad known as the Microaggression Victims Unit. These are their stories.
