This thread calls for NO RACISM, NO OUTRAGEOUS SEXISM, NO UNNECESSARY RIDUCULE, NO 'HATE'.
To explain on the disclaimer above, no racism is to be added into this, such as demeaning names, such as saying a general group of people are such
(stereotyping), unjustly, ridiculing a group, generalizing one group, for a persons actions, such as saying all white people are hitlers, because
their white, or saying all blacks are mugabes, because their black, and so on and so forth, is uncalled for, and I will report, I post this here,
because ATS knows better then that, I hope so, and call for a CIVIL talk about this!
Now, for me, I'm all for equal rights, for all homo sapiens.
Although, as I look into things, it seems, that we're not all equal, racially, and gender wise.
Brain wise, we all differ, very significantly, from race to gender, none of us, brain wise, are equal.
So do we all deserve to be treated equally?
I for the one and the few, believe that voting, should be for those, 'qualified', not just for anyone over the age of 18.
That, there should be a test, you should take, before you're eligible to vote.
I know friends who got their license and can't drive for ****. So why at the same place, must they do less to vote for a leader of their country!
Back to the original point, should we all be treated equally?
My 11th grade teacher, I still remember him saying, (I'll leave out his name, I loathed him though) brought the idea to the class, for what reason
I'm not sure but it was pertinent, he asked the class, whether or not women deserve equals rights, and if they do, should they in turn, be able to be
drafted into wars? As opposed to now?
It hit me, because we all fear a draft, in any time, we never know the future, but for me, I personally, would run like hell to Canada, *dual
citizenship!* but my friends, would go, but the girls, would be safe at home, with equality to the men, who die for them.
But they want equality, in certain aspects, but not all!
If a ship is sinking, the first is obviously, the children and women! What about the men? Is it just a 'screw them' mentality? Why should men be
brought down, to the least, the most worthy to die!
Now, for me, I would gladly, happily, give my life for a woman, child, or man! Note the last part of that, man.
My fellow brother. I would like to have that be my Choice. Not an overguiding force.
As the days go on, and on, I find that minority groups- Women, Children, Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, and so on.
Are given more and more rights, and better rights.
More so, do I see 'hatred' on the White Man, I being a white man, have no problem really, with any group!
I throw my arguments, and simplistic jokes, but nothing personal.
I offer a reversal of roles, solely!
Women were the first sent to war, in times of a draft, only women.
Blacks were the first, and only, sent to war in times of a draft.
Blacks, and women were last to board a floaty if a ship was drowning?
What upheaval would there be, what outrage and racist calls would there be, what gender would attack those for wishing the worst upon them in times of
For those who don't know me personally, I'm an organ donor, one whose family is strictly against it, ones whose friends loathe the idea of being an
organ donor (just spent 2 hours debating it in person right now, gosh it was awful!). One, who studied each candidate extremely well, before voting in
the 2008 election.
Also one who has not stopped studying after the 2008 election!
One who sought refuge in ATS' 'greatness' since 2006!
So I ask this, with the meandering above, do we truly deserve to be treated equally?
"All men created equally".
Well feminist may not 'like' that quote for consciousness raising factors, but still, what does it mean?
That all men, and women are created equally, which is not true, I am not equal to my sisters logic, and she is not from mine!
I am from logic, up of logic, down considered of her.
