Labels are important in describing some times. Woman, man, child, black, Asian, cat, dog. ect... If you are derogatory when you use them that is the problem. In America in we supposedly strive for equal rights. But we separate the rights between groups. We don't push human rights that's the problem. They segregate the rights between groups. Gay, women's, black ect.. That is the problem. No one says that nobody should be treated a certain way. They say you can't treat black, ect.. that way. They segregate the rights between groups. segregation will never be equal. We need basic human rights not separate rights and that would be a step on the right path. Get rid of all these individual rights groups. If some one is wronged yes it is wrong. Just say don't treat anyone that way. Don't say you can't treat a group that way. Until segregated rights are gone we will never have equal rights. HUMAN RIGHTS, CIVIL RIGHTS, ect.... If you separate them into groups like they are different, don't be surprised when they are treated different. Because that in itself it a determination of being different. But we do need the descriptive terms just as identification, just not a classification.
