This reminds me of something I've realized, though this is not perhaps and example of it.
Some people act like reverse discrimination will solve current or past discrimination. It's seems like there are people now who are being hateful towards white people, rich or middle class people, males, straight people, christians, because of their ancestors' mistakes. As though, because they are the majority, they can rightfully be hated, or put down in order to lift others up. Like when some people say, "Shut up, You're ____, you don't have any right to complain, or express pride, because you haven't been discriminated against." Almost everyone knows what it's like to be hated, because of something they can't control. And acting like someone is a jerk because they were born the majority, or upper class, is just as wrong.
Again, not specifically this post, or most people.
It makes me sad that some people think they can fight hate and discrimination with reverse hate and discrimination. It's like trying to put out a fire with fire.
All people need to recognize that the way to fixing prejudice is through complete tolerance, acceptance, and love.
Would you like to go out with me? I have a scar on my forehead because I survived a brush with death. No, no, not because I'm terribly strong or powerful. I was saved by my mother's love... No, okay. Cool. Who's my ginger friend? His name is Ron. Oh, okay bye then.
Works every time ;-)
Yo' momma's so... nice! I love coming over to your house!
But... I want doves. And butterflies. And a casino. And live chickens that people have to catch, kill, and cook for themselves. That's not a wedding, that's an event!
The one about soup being stewpid.
Why can't everyone just love each other?
I'm Catholic and this is what I know: God is perfect; God is love. God loves you no matter who you are or what you do.
Which means that we are supposed to love each other. Regardless of everything, including any of the sins on our soul (which everyone undoubtably has), we are supposed to love each other as God loves us.
I don't care about who you are. I don't care about what you look like, what you believe in, what you've done. I don't care if you don't like me. I don't care if you're mean. I don't care about what your sexual orientation is. I don't care.
Because, while I might disagree with you on things, you are a human being, and that means that I should love you.
Man... she could really use a Life Alert.

Okay. People just look at ten guilty men on the street or one innocent man in jail, but that's not the entirety of what this philosophy means. Number one: either way, guilty men are going free. The innocent man is going to jail instead of the actual guilty person. Number two: it isn't just about who you're letting go, it's about what society you would prefer. Would you prefer a society that puts people in jail without factual or true evidence, and where planting evidence is easier? Or would you prefer a society that cares so much about putting the right guy in jail, it won't even jail is supposed guilty person if there isn't enough proof? I don't think possible "safety" is worth an easily corruptible justice system that relies on faulty evidence.
Which is better?
Eye witness says he did it, the guy goes to jail regardless of whether or not he did it.
Eye witness says he did it, but because eye witnesses aren't completely reliable, and there isn't any other substantial evidence, the guy goes free.

I would play the cowbell. Each of the peasants would play a slightly smaller cowbell. The only lyrics to every song would be, "MORE COWBELL, SERFS!" >:-]
It makes sense that women are let off first with the children for a couple reasons: 1.) For most of human history it seems, women were thought to be weaker. 2.) Women can be pregnant. So it would make sense that they can get out of risky situations. 3.) Women tend to be the care takers of children. Not that fathers do nothing! But, you tend to see more female babysitters, nannies, and more mothers out alone with the children.
So when you weigh all of the effects of tradition, it makes sense that this happens.
Is it really fair? Probably not. Men and women are equal, but for many years, men had to be the protectors which included protecting their wives and children.
Equality is a two way street. I never really understand the man-hating feminists. I am a feminist, but I don't think that that involves making men inferior to push ourselves up. Men and women were created equal and should be treated as such. I don't need special treatment; I need equal treatment.
