It's a common topic, especially here. There are a range of situations that stem from the basis of equality. But the problem I see is, that these situations seem to cloud the basis of equality for each individual person. Instead of equality being a core aspect, it's something that can become secondary when the situation(s) suit it from a string rational. But equality is different for every person. Especially as a society, which is why I sincerly understand peoples views on specific topics of both sides of the fence. The only reason I'm making this topic is because of the confliction I read so much in loads of threads. People want equality for who they are, but draw a line when someone else is living a life that would never live. Applying equality en-mass is not the right way of doing it. It is the equality for the individual, regardless if they are part of a group or not. The actions of a group is actually the actions of the individuals who create that group. Defineing the individuals of a group because some people in that group decide to do something that warrents your definition is wrong. This only discriminates people, and ultimatly defines people who are no where near this initial situation that warrented your definition. By defining a group, you are defineing not only the people of now, but possibly the people of tomorrow and the people of the past. So perhaps I am wondering, how does your society view equality? And how do you view equality? As in, The core basis that ever person in your culture is entitled to. I think this is a fundamental aspect that needs to be emphasised and breathed in every corner of our societies, so we can all work from the same page. It would help alot when other socieities come into our(your) society and present their views of equality. Post or not, I've spilt my beans. I just read and heard so much and it's a zig zag mess of views, and it doesn't have to be like that.
