    Funeral Etiquette

    I am fully expecting to get flamed by the Scots for this one ! But Today I attended a very dear friends funeral , until today I never knew that in my part of Scotland it's not acceptable to attend the burial if you are female . It's ok to go to the service , it's fine to go to...

    We are all equal before god.

    For the Atheists, we are all equal in death. So why do people find the need to be superior ? Perhaps insecurity.

    We are all equal no matter how we look we are

    all the same under the skin. We should learn respecting one another.

    no one should be held back

    because of the colour of skin, which god they may or may not believe in, sexual preference or any other reason. except for being stupid. which is more than likely the reason you discriminate someone from the above list.

    I believe in equality

    Do men really think of us,

    women, as equals? Personally, my experience and impression is no. Before the law all should be equal. No deference given to women because we are the softer sex. Tests should be done, to ensure the best parent has the children live with them, not automatically their mother...

    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 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...

    Equal

    No human being is better than the other. We are all equal, no matter where we come from, how we look, what we believe in and what we practice. If everyone put their differences aside, the world would be a better place.

    What Is Wrong With Some People.

    Recently i was walking home after a night out and there were these two guys yelling abuse at this other man simply for the fact that he was gay. That sort of behaviour annoys me and so i thought i'd do a little rant about it. To begin with, i'm frustrated when people hide...

    There is still inequality in the world.

    For example the NFL. If cheerleaders are expected to perform for 3 hours with a fake smile fixed on their faces I think the players should too.

    Everyone is equal at the start.

    It just changes when we degrade our view on ourselves or if we think ourselves higher. Not only that! But, if we have 5 school days, shouldn't there be an equal amount of 5 weekend days? But seriously, we are all equally made. We're no longer equal when we judge others wrongly...

    Everyone is equal in certain respects.

    Sure, we have our differences in capabilities, talents, intellectual level, gender, sexuality, etc. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't all be treated fairly and have the same access and opportunities as everyone else.

    Created equal. To be a bit shallow,

    I suppose the Orwellian view of being 'more equal' comes into play. I just think a hospital, for example, cannot function without its cleaners.

    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...
