Note on Aggressivity

'Aggressivity.' A psychiatrist who broadcast recently in Woman's Hour used the term 'aggressivity.' A listener was moved to write this humourous protest:

It was in last Wednesday's session

that I heard a strange expression

from one of medical profession.

Maybe it's an indiscretion

to call it a vile transgression

which merits no concession

and should have quick suppression.

Maybe it's my obsession,

but I must make confession:

it shattered my self-possession,

roused a surge of plain aggression

to a point beyond repression.

So, with all the strength of my protestivity,

I spurn that monster: AGGRESSIVITY.

From the Radio Times, February 15, 1952, p. 46.
