Being equal doesn't mean you can't be different. Being equal means you won't be treated better or worse just for being different.
Being equal doesn't mean you are as good as anyone in any skill. Being equal means that those who have the skill should be able to get the job, in spite of his/her sexual orientation, skin colour, ethnicity etc.
Being equal is the freedom to be whatever you want/can, not being something because someone else wants to be something they want.

We can never be truly equal, nor can society be ever perfect, but we can always try to make this world a better place for the outcasts and oppressed.

We can never all be equal, but I think that we should all at least be given equal chances.
#15 to #2 - anon (11/10/2013) [-]
given by whom? the government?
should the people who don't need the government's help also be forced to have their chances reduced for the sake of equal chances?
User avatar #18 to #15 - crazyolitis (11/10/2013) [-]
No, chances as in being given the chance to prove that you can handle, let's say education. Those that are smarter will go to the higher levels, while those that are not as smart are going to the lower levels. However, it should not be predetermined where a child will go to.

And yet the LSAT scores for Puerto Ricans are higher for middle than for upper-middle and higher, so maybe intelligence and LSAT scores don't have a linear correlation?

Also, using LSAT scores to prove intelligence? Why don't you use a more standardized test like IQ (and use a more recent set of IQ scores please, nothing from the early 1900s) or even college GPAs?

And statistically significant differences usually only matter that much when we're talking at least 2 SDs away from the mean (or in this case, the white mean). In fact, in your LSAT example, you really only have a case if the distances between white scores and black scores are statistically significant in difference

I think you might be one of those folks who likes to find charts on the internet to prove your bias, instead of those actually interested in the facts.

We won't all ever be equal. That's not the point. It's about equal opportunity. Everybody deserves the freedom to do what they want with their life without being discriminated against based on predetermined stereotypes or prejudices. We can support individuality without undermining anyone's human rights, and vice versa.

*sigh* gonna take some heat on this one...

If it's about equal opportunity, why does the LGBT community act like they're channeling the spirit of the Civil Rights Movement from the 70s when no homosexual has ever had his rights denied to him under the Constitution? Why are they in the right to petition for a form of marriage unique to their minority group?
User avatar #287 to #139 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/11/2013) [-]
They can't get married, many can't adopt kids, they couldn't openly serve in the military until very recently, and until the recent discrimination bill was passed they had no workplace security if an employer decided to fire or harass them for their sexual orientation. Not to mention some of the grotesque hate crimes committed against gays.
User avatar #252 to #139 - excentric (11/11/2013) [-]
They can't get married, they are discriminated in many other ways. Hate crimes are committed upon them often, to appalling levels. They are treated like filth among certain people. Religions point to them as vile, something that is bad enough to be killed for.

Whoever made this is using equality as a synonym for identical. Which is not only, wrong but very ignorant.
User avatar #307 to #114 - laelaps (11/11/2013) [-]
To emphasize my point I will use this example:

6/3 = 2 six thirds is equal to two

But these numbers are completely different, one is a fraction and the other is a whole number. The numbers on the left are greater than the number on the right, and the denominator of the fraction is odd, and the whole number is even. Because I have listed the things that makes these two numbers different I have effectively proved why they are not equal.
WRONG. The two numbers are equal even if they aren't identical. And this ignorant puffin needs to understand that we can all be different as well as equal.

Equal: being the same in quantity, size, degree, or value.
User avatar #117 to #114 - winsauceiswin (11/11/2013) [-]
while i agree with you; i would ask that you recognize that the majority of people are confusing identical with equal when preaching equality.

Nothing is equal, but that doesn't mean the world should be so unequal.
Why should my future be denied simply because I'm poorer than someone?
You can only choose so much and you can't do anything about the hand you were dealt.

After all assigning everyone a value isn't so great when you're on the short end of the stick. That's an ugly world, and quite an ignorant one.

I think what the OP means is that we should stop with the ******** kind of equality where a business has to put X% of women in the top positions because of "equality", whether or not they are actually the best qualified candidate.

Same goes for hiring blacks over whites even if they are under-qualified because the job needs more "diversity" and "equality".
User avatar #305 to #294 - Shiny (11/11/2013) [-]
This is already completely illegal, and has been for a long time, at least in the US.
User avatar #309 to #305 - crutos ONLINE (11/11/2013) [-]
well I believe that here in Denmark we actually have a law which states that women has to have x% of all top positions.. And it is a progessive trend here in the west that if you a business doesn't hire enough blacks they're accused of racism, or is afraid to be labeled racist.
User avatar #311 to #309 - Shiny (11/11/2013) [-]
Well, can't speak for you, then. I'd imagine it's pointless since if the business owners actually are prejudiced, they'll intentionally hire underqualified women and minorities so they can remain in charge.
#288 - restfullwicked (11/11/2013) [-]
then you have missed the point of equality. the point is that human life is the same value regardless of those things. you can be different and equal. its a very narrow minded view to think that being different means we cant be equal.

Equality and sameness are not..well...the same.
Different peoples can be on equal ground without being considered homogeneous.
To put it in math terms: two plus two equals four, but is most certainly not the same thing as 4.

like or alike in quantity, degree, value, etc.; of the same rank, ability, merit, etc.
The same in rank
You're just preaching something that people have been preaching since before the 60s (but it was popularized then).

Being the same in rank in stature does NOT mean that you are not different in bodily characteristics

Having equal rights is different to having equal lives. If you agree with this post, you're missing the point.

Everybody is completely unique in all those different ways, but everyone should be the same in how much value is placed on them, how well they belong, and the respect they are paid.

Equality isn't treating people of equal fitness or intellect. It's based on treating everyone with an equal amount of humanity.

No, thats ******* ridiculous

That is the idea that fueled the governments pre-demoracy. If you weren't born into royalty, then you don't have a chance. The idea of equality has changed this. We can't completely level the playing field. but its our duty to our fellow man to at least try
User avatar #198 to #190 - syndromes (11/11/2013) [-]
No, you misunderstood.
What you're saying is that in a pre-democracy everyone was different and if you were a bad kind of different instead of a good kind, you wouldn't be accepted at all and there would be nothing you could do to change that.

What he's saying is that everyone is different, therefore unique and everyone should learn to appreciate and accept that, regardless of how different an individual is.
