    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...

    Equality doesn't always refer to gay rights

    or sexism . I'm talking about respect . Many adults think that those younger than them must treat them with high respect , but they do not do the same . It is not fair or okay for any adult to treat younger people like they are stupid or any less educated than they are . I have...

    **** 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...

    People Are People

    If there's one thing I've learned in my travels and experiences....it's that people are the same all over the world. We're all human beings. We have the same rights and needs. I don't have to agree with or even want to be around certain people; but I can NEVER hold myself as...

    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.

    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...

    Sexism: What's the Point?

    Biologically, women have been proven to live longer and heal faster due to estrogen. This doesn't make women superior to men, nor does it make them inferior. Sexism, while it's not as bad as it used to be, still exists. People still tell "kitchen" jokes, and women are...

    I had a dream in which I was basically

    I just feel that we need everyone to understand

    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...

    equal no matter what their ethnicity is. The only time I would think someone doesn't deserve to be treated equally is if they are acting like they are better than everyone else.

    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...

    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...
