People Really Need to Get This Through Their Thick Heads
It's not okay that I am not considered equal because of my gender.
Tell me, why does having a dick mean that you have more power than someone who doesn't?
It's not okay that I am not considered equal because of my skin color.
Since when does having the presence of melanin, which everyone has, contribute to how good or bad of a person I am?
It's not okay that I'm not considered equal because of my beliefs.
What I want to believe is up to me, not my family or my friends. They can't force their thoughts on me or shame me for where I decide to place my faith.
It's not okay that I am not considered equal because of my sexuality.
Who I love is a person, not a label. I should be able to love whoever I want without you telling me "what I am" I am not a what, I am a who. So grow up and treat me like one.

Well I consider you equal to everyone else. It would be better if the whole world didn't discriminate.
Well, having a dick doesn't mean more power, having more power means more power.
No two people are created equally. If you want equal treatment under the law, a whole lot of women are going to need to be sent to jail and for much longer. Fun fact: women often get much lighter sentences or avoid jail altogether for egregious offenses.
If you want equal treatment by employers, we have that already. It's called Equal Employment Opportunity or EEO and if you can prove you've been discriminated against, they'll be more than happy to help you sue the employer into oblivion.
If you want bigots to stop being bigots, it's never going to happen. I for one will always regard you and people like you (the ones who like to nag everyone else for thought crimes) as inferior. To paraphrase one of my favorite characters in all of fiction: "You move like an insect. You THINK like an insect. You ARE an insect."
No two persons are equal. Only you consider yourself this.
You lost me at "why does having a dick mean that you have more power than someone who doesn't?" I wholeheartedly agree and support the first statement "It's not okay that I am not considered equal because of my gender." Then you go on to the fallacious statement that follows. I hate to break it to you, but men are also disenfranchised because of their gender, you are perpetuation the myth of "male privilege" Privilege comes from the Latin "privi" private and "liege" law or lord, or in other words laws that only apply to the "privileged." For every law that you can show me that only benefits men I can show you at least 10 that privilege women. For every so-called social advantage that you can show that privileges men, I can show you the corollary that gives more freedom to women. Male privilege is a myth based on using Marxist social class findings and applying them to gender.
Nice statement - I agree everyone has the right to be treated equally and respected - There has been 3 fatal incidents in the last week Orlando, the couple stabbed in Paris and the MP murdered in the UK where for one reason or another hatred or intolerance was seeing to be a factor - There will be a lot of argument about these cases - So to add a little spin on your take bigotry can't be condoned, inflicting your views on somebody else but all sides have to look at themselves and think about their actions - I don't think it will be a short battle but a long war for hearts and minds - Am I 100% sure my views are the right path to be honest I am not sure

you do know there are religions that will kill people for beliefs, sex, sexuality, etc. because it says to do so in their teachings. perhaps try reaching them first. as far as the others go, people will always be dicks.
