thats what equality means >< . accepting the diffrent aspects of others and seeing them AS an equal.

We are only equal under law. Just because we should treat others like we are the same, that doesnt mean we are.

Has anyone read the book Anthem, by Ayn Rand? I liked the book, and I think that most people that commented here would, even if you don't agree with her philosophy (Objectivism, I know I don't agree with it). I feel like the message OP is sending is also the message being sent in the book, in a way. While, where I live, we aknowledge people's differences every day, I guess there might be some places that don't. While we are different, it shouldn't mean different treatment under the law. That just leads back to Social Darwinism, which is the ****** excuse that European's used to take Africans as slaves (we are white and civilized, they are black and savages, we must take them and "civilize" them). Being different is great. When it comes to the law, if you were discriminated for any reason, it is bad. It has happened all the time in the history of the world, the best example coming to my head is the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which prevented Chinese immigrants from entering the US. Doesn't seem fair when hundreds of thousands of white immigrants were still entering the country.
TLDR; Being different is good, discrimination (especially under the law) is bad.

i think people are misunderstanding op here. just because everybody isn't being treated equally, doesn't mean they are being treated negatively. if everyone where treated equally, wouldn't we all be expected to do the same work, get the same free time, and do the same recreational activites? you wouldn't ask some petite woman to do the same work as a construction worker, just as you wouldn't ask an uninteligent person to do the same studies as a scientist. think standardized testing, that is, by definition, everybody being treated equally, but it's a flawed system that doesn't take into account many factors that can affect test scores. i believe that this post is saying that people are all unique, and need to be treated as the individuals that they are. we need to embrace our differences, not force equality.

Pretty much aware of that, I just judge people on their character, which I think is the gist of the whole ''everyone is equal''

You misunderstand.
We're not talking about treating a no life junkie the same as a profound scientist. We're talking about treating everyone the same regarding their race and gender. A black junkie is just as bad as a white one.

"All men…are NOT created equal! Some are born smarter, or more beautiful, or with parents of greater status. Some, by contrast, are born weak of body or mind, or with few, if any, talents. All men are different! Yes, the very existence of man is discriminatory! That’s why there is war, violence and unrest. Inequality is not evil. Equality is! What became of the EU, who claimed that all are equal? It is in constant conflict because its tenets go against human nature! The Middle Eastern Federation, which harbors similar sentiments, is constantly mired with sloths! But our Britannia is not like them! We put an end to wars and evolve with every conquest! Britannia alone looks forward and moves forward to a better future! The death of my son Clovis is yet more proof that our empire is evolving. Fight! For the future rests in the hands of its ruler! ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!!!"

...Equality is acceptance...
Did you miss the memo or something?
#164 - spetsnaztm (11/11/2013) [-]
My definition of true equality is when everyone has the exact same opportunities no matter what they are/what their background is (I'm a communist, I admit it).

Education, Work, etc. You can never have equality intellectually, because there will always be someone a bit smarter or (no offense) a bit dumber than somebody else. But as long as they have the same opportunity, then they are equal.



But that's just me.

Well The idea of Having Basic Human rights should be equal for every race, gender, and Intellectual.

Everyone doesn't need to be the same for us to treat them equally.

This new *le maymay is pure ******* cancer.

GUISE LOOK, LOOK AT ME I HAVE AN OPINION
guise pls persecute me so my retarded half-baked attempts at thinking are justified


No, **** you. There is nobody on Earth with a brain that thinks people are inherently equal in their blood, there isn't even a radical example of this kind of person. Equality has never meant that, any idiot will tell you that it just means to treat people fairly and judge them by their character. This is the very foundation of the concepts of freedom and liberty. It is what generations of soldiers all across the first world fought for. It is such a truism that you must be incredibly ******* retarded to need to have it explained to you.

Either that, or you are an edgy cognitively biased **** . Maybe Hitler was right after all, these people are different by nature, so why shouldn't we treat them differently?

TL-DR (lol emoticons), you are retarded and deserve to be called out for it.
