I started this in the open forum, I expect to be moderated in just the same way anyone else would be and I’ll make it clear, I am not going to step in as a mod in this thread in any shape or form.
The starting point is I think, when I stated a long held traditional liberal belief that people should not be discriminated on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation or religion. It’s also law in most places.
I got some push back at the idea people should be treated equal, because as it was noted (quite true) people are not equal.
Which led me to ask, if in fact the belief of the more progressives is we should be discriminating on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation and so on. To balance the field so to speak.
