Here is the problem:
We have NO way of knowing if more men ACTUALLY molest children then women. What we DO know is that more men are CONVICTED of molesting/raping/assault
So, evidently, people see it as OK policy to discriminate against people, for things they have no control over (their gender)
So, minorities are CONVICTED of theft more than white people. We have no way of knowing if they actually steal more, only that they are convicted
more. Are you guys OK with a policy saying that minorities are not allowed into retail stores because they get more theft convictions? No, that
wouldn't be right, at all.
Minorities are also convicted of more assaults, murders, etc. Should we make illegal for minorities to buy guns, because more of then kill people? No,
that wouldn't be right, at all.
The majority of people who've hijacked planes have been arabs. Should we make it illegal for arabs to fly on planes? No, that wouldn't be right, at
More women kill their children than men do, should we not allow mothers to have any unsupervised contact with their children? No, that wouldn't be
right, at all.
I understand the reason for this, I really do. If I was on a plane and asked to move, I would. Like someone else mentioned, I'd rather NOT sit next
to kids. Who wants to? They are annoying as hell. So it's a plus for me.
I get it, and maybe it's a good policy that should stand. I just don't like hypocrisy. I don't like how it's seen as OK to discriminate against
men for things, but not anybody else for anything else. If you are going to make a law, or a policy that is discriminatory, as long as it's
discriminating against men (white men preferably) then you'll be fine and nobody will complain.
