    **** 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...

    in every aspect of life among men

    and women, however, in a relationship, one needs to take the reigns and guide the "family" i'm not saying that the man/woman who isn't the "alpha" has to obey the "alpha" no matter what, they should stick to their values, however, if the "alpha" has a preference that isn't going...

    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...

    I just feel that we need everyone to understand

    that when someone such as myself talks about equality/feminism, women rights, gay rights and rape culture etc, it’s not just some political conversation. it’s not about us being some “social justice warrior” trying to take away your rights and saying that i am superior...

    Gender is just a limitation!

    I have no other mission in life

    than to make everyone feel equal and accepted. Until we all realize that we're all the same a no one is different, better, or lesser, we can't truly move forward in society. Judgement is a ridiculous concept and the god in most of your religions tells you not to judge others, so...

    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...

    I believe everybody is equal.

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

    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...

    Neither Side - I am not an extreme feminist

    or anything but I believe that both genders are equal and that there shouldn't be any need for animosities at all. I am on neither side, because I feel that we shouldn't have to pick who is better.

    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...

    My Perspective On Equality

    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...

    What Is Wrong With Some People.

    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...
