"Should" and "is" ain't on speaking terms.
No...everyone is not created "equal". That is simply a fact.
Everyone, in a truly civilized society, would have equal opportunity (equal results not guaranteed), and be equal before the law. We do not, however, live in such a society.
Everyone should have equal rights under the law. No one is actually created equal and not everyone should be treated the same. I treat people according to the way they treat others. If they show disrespect then I return the favor. If they are a good person and show respect to others, I show respect to them.
Everyone is created with the same God given, inalienable rights, so everyone must be treated as equal under the law. But not everyone is equal in ability or equally valuable to society, that's just reality. There is a scale there that goes something like [dangerous, costly, unproductive, marginally valuable, valuable, highly valuable] If you're a talented surgeon, you are much more valuable to society than if you're a thief. Depending on your politics, you might find this concept offensive, but deep down, you know it's the truth.
Exactly! So, also trans people! We shouldn't be excluded :)
Equal would mean no gets preferential treatment, Including politicians being on the same health care they foist on us or colleges wouldn't be allowed to "make up" for past behavior in their selection process. Will the day come that
a robot will take all input and make decisions on the facts and nothing else?
Equality isn't natural
Ugly people who smoke and get tattoos need to be treated with disdain.
That's a lot of people you distain without even knowing them.
Oh dear I know them they smoke they stink up the air. Smoke just don't exhale everything is ok
Do they though?
That's like saying old people who drink coffee need to be treated with disdain.
Hey hey! Don't be picking on us coffee drinkers! 🤣
whatever you like, at least drinking coffee doesn't cause other people to suffer. Smoke all you like just don't exhale
We're all different and the same. The equality comes in with respect for who another person is. No one is better or worse than another, but that does not mean they are equal.
