…says NO to inequality.
I am a big believer in equality. I hate any form of discrimination based on class, caste, race, gender, looks…you name it and I have a problem with it. As they say in Australia, everyone deserves a “fair go”. Sadly, even here, not everyone gets a fair go!
If I could be influential enough to make a change, I’d definitely try to change all the inequality that exists in this world…
…by legalising same-sex marriage here in Australia. After all, why shouldn’t same-sex couples be given a choice of whether or not to get married?
…by de-criminalising homosexuality in countries where it is still considered illegal and carries a penalty. Why should something biological be punished?
…by imprisoning people who perform female foeticide. Why should a female child be considered any less precious than a male child?
…by de-stimgatising the mentally ill. After all, mental illness does not discriminate who it affects. Why then, should human beings treat the mentally ill any differently?
…by providing enough opportunities for the disabled. Why should someone with a disability not be given equal opportunities especially if they are just differently able?
…by providing women with education in order for them to achieve freedom. Why should women be treated as the ‘weaker’ sex or as secondary citizens just because of their gender?
…by ridding the world of any form of organised religion. After all, religious discrimination is the cause of so many riots and wars. What’s the point of it?
If I could, I would try and achieve a change for all of the above. I am but one person. And this blog is the only way I manage to voice my opinions and hope that people will listen. Maybe some day, in this lifetime, I will see more examples of equality or equal opportunity. Hopefully people will reduce discriminating on these grounds.
After all, we are all human beings to begin with.
In the mean time, I will continue to advocate for equality.
And behave in a way consistent with my beliefs.
