    Thinking about how there are

    so many different types of people out there really got me thinking. I thought about a box of pens. When I am reaching in, I do not care about its color or shape or size. All I need is a pen that will allow me to write neatly and efficiently. I also believe that people should be...

    My Perspective On Equality

    Many people claim that they are all for equality.  Unfortunately, that generally means that all is fine, as long as they end up on top and get what they want.  I believe in true equality across the board, not selective equality. In a relationship, I expect...

    I am a straight person

    but I believe in equality and I believe that Australia should legally allow gay marriage. I mean like, c'mon. Britain has it. Ireland won it by a vote. New Zealand has it now. Why can't Australia? Why do people have to be put down because they are different?

    So here's what I randomly thought again.

    Pls bare, for this will have "maybes" So, I wanna ask you, have you been in love? If yes, then you'll get this. Once you're in love, it just really struck you like you can't even explain it, but one thing is for sure, it just feels right. With a boy or with a girl, it's just...

    People should be measured according to the

    merits of their actions not their social status, race, or gender. The straightest man can still be a psychomurderer. The richest woman can be the world's most heartless witch. It's about the person's true values and how they translate into their daily lives and affect the world...

    85 of the world's richest men have more money

    than 50% of the world's poor. That is a staggering statistic. A handful of people have enough wealth to wipe poverty among half the population of the WORLD. How can we live with ourselves? Our greed, our apathy plunges billions of people into darkness, hunger and a life of...

    **** discrimination of any kind.

    Your race, your nationality, your beliefs, your sexual preference, your gender, they do NOT make you a bad person. Being black, Asian, Hispanic, or white does not define your income, your way of life. YOU do. The country you live in does NOT change how you see the world. Your...

    Its true. But its never okay to beat a man,

    ever! People need to stop being so feminist and look at the wider picture, men are abused too, but that seems to over looked. Just because a man is the 'stronger' gender, doesnt mean its okay for them to be abused. Both males and females can be raped and abused. Gender should...

    I think it's cruel to judge someone for liking the same gender, being that I like the same gender myself, but honestly, you can't help who you love. Sure it says it's a sin in the bible but, it's almost 2014 and some people are still judging people for what they can't help...

    So, here's what I think

    and see. It's just a case where a boy likes a boy, a girl likes a girl or both on boys and girls. It's just, it's not the knowledge we're born of, that's why we think it's wrong but it's just the SAME THING. Think of this way, they didn't choose to be like that, I know they have...

    No matter sexuality, race, religion, sex, mind set, or personal choices. We should all be treated the same way as everyone else.

    I know what equality means.

    I don't know what equality means to people who don't treat other people different from them like equals. I find it sad that people like that are afraid of equality because they know it would make the world a better place. They're afraid of peace and happiness. So, they chose to...

    Double Standards

    Much of the inequality I feel is down to the way I am perceived and viewed by others, and the expectations by society to live and act to a certain standard, which differs from that of a man. Think about this. If a young man keeps a very untidy and messy apartment, he is not...
