Othering is the words, actions and processes placing individuals in the category of "the other", a category separate from the "we/us". It can be used to understand multiple forms of intolerance, such as racism, sexism, homophobia, discrimination of Sami and other indigenousness people. Othering can also be used to describe mechanisms for exclusion, from prejudice and ways of thinking, to microaggression and discrimination.
