Re: Woman fired for being gay

I'm not about what kind of discrimination 'matters' more. It's about what occurs more. If you think people are discriminated just as equally for being able bodied as they are for being disabled, or...

Re: Woman fired for being gay

The good thing for you is that that would never happen. I always find it interesting when people use this line of argument by saying, "Look, if I get fired because I'm white, straight and middle...

Re: Gillard's speech in Aus parliament

It was definitely without a doubt diversionary, however it wasn't something they pulled out of thin air either. I'm not sure if I'd call Abbot a misogynist. A sexist, maybe (I find it annoying that...

Re: Teen Makes Video Shortly Before Committing Suicide

Gillard's speech in Aus parliament

Re: Should it be illegal to produce works or material that have a high likelyhood of inciting violence?

When you say 'both ways', I'm assuming you mean sexist against both men and women? I get the latter, but could you explain the former? I'm not really seeing it.
