It sounds like you think microaggressions are invented by people who have nothing better to do than feel victimized. If I'm reading that wrong, I apologize, but I assure you that it's not the case. I found this blog on the subject very helpful: microaggressions.com

It's a mistake to project yourself onto everyone else, and assume they should feel as you do. If a question offends someone, try to put yourself in their shoes. Don't tell them what they feel is wrong or doesn't matter.

Also, lots and lots of people read the docs. The only reason not to is if they're not good or not there. Docs are great!
