We are all equally different.

I think you are missing what part the equality is for. IT's for everyone to have the same opportunity as everyone else. It's so everyone can actually do something with their lives.

TL;DR - Same opportunity for everyone.

true, nobody is equal to another person, but we do deserve to be treated equelly for the things we do

Yeah! Fuck equality!
Look at my skin! It determines who i am mentally!
look at my sexual partner, no not who they are person wise but their gender! check that out! Oh yeah, and my Rippling biceps! that makes me different than you guys! oh yeah and check out my AWESOME B+! u only got a C! Ha! don't group me in with you, ya pleb.

Protip: you are allowed to fully appreciate the differences that make us unique while simultaneously treating everyone with equal respect and fairness.

I think you're getting the wrong idea of what we mean be "equality"
User avatar #282 - stultum (11/11/2013) [-]
There is a difference between equality and being the same.

Everybody is different. I will sooner believe a doctor who tells me that I just have a bad cold, than a concerned friend who tells me I have lung cancer, because his father had lung cancer, and it started the same way.

There are other things my friend will be better at though. Being my friend, for one. He may know several languages, have a good sense of right and wrong, be able to see in the dark better than others, be a really good football player, or have a killer sense of humour.

And even if he isnt... He's still a human being, and is equally important as the aforementioned doctor. Which makes them equal.

As equals, they both have the right to live, to work to their live goals, and get help if they need it.

Equality is not giving everybody a fish, it's learning fishing those who don't know how to fish, and helping those who already know how to fish to put this skill to good use.

you do realize that everyone should be equal in the sense that everyone has the right to vote, if 2 people do the same job they deserve to have the same amount of pay and vacation days. NOT everyone should have the same amount of strength, dumb ass.

If race is a social construct, then why are there minorities?

if ketchup equals londonderry, then how come earthworms faked the moon landing?
User avatar #229 - riddlerenigma (11/11/2013) [-]
Yes. Because we all just love hearing people saying they are better than us.

For me too equality means being treated and treat people the same way no matter how different you or the others are.
I do my best to act that and the only exception is when I really like or love someone. It doesn't necessarly make me always happy but it is something I'm proud of and I wouldn't change it. I earn a lot thanks to it

Please, Funnyjunk, for the love of god, stop spewing this pseudo-intellectual bullshit. Could I just get some motherfucking funny on the front page, please?

"Equality" refers to legal rights, obligations and personal treatment. Nothing more.

But i get your point, people seems to have twisted or lost track of what "equality" means.

Equal opportunity is what's important.

Let me guess, OP is a white, straight, male, right?
User avatar #215 - theaceofthespade (11/11/2013) [+] (4 replies)
This *sounds* incredibly racist, but I assume what OP is actually referring to would be things like affirmative action, which seak to create equality of outcome?
#219 to #215 - itsbendingtime (11/11/2013) [-]
Affirmative action is racist.
Nobody should be given any extra help or leg ups because of their race.
Everyone should be left to succeed or fail based on personal merit alone.

There are two different things that they teach kids these days in public schools.
1. Support and respect the fact that people are diverse and have different qualities/beliefs/sexual orientation/race etc.
2. Treat others equally AS IN treat those with different qualities/beliefs/sexual orientation/race etc. with just as much respect and to give them the same rights as you would yourself or any other person you respected.
The point of "equality" is not to denigrate the fact that others are different than you. It's to accept those people for their differences.
