Sissy Caption - Equality


4 comments:

  1. Your caption captures the truth about equality. Unfortunately, most of the people who demand equality want the recognition of their "cause" more than they want true equality.

    1. But without those who champion "causes," would equality ever really be possible?

  2. That always depends on how they champion their cause. All to often they become rather intolerant of the views of others and cause more division instead of more tolerance. You can hardly expect others to be tolerant of you or your views when you have made it clear that you will not listen to or tolerate opposing views, because then you are not giving the equality you are asking for. I have never been afraid of expressing myself or my viewpoint, but I am also very tolerant of and willing to listen to the viewpoint of others even if I disagree with them.

    1. That's true. However, I can also see how it can be extremely difficult to remain tolerant of viewpoints which are based in hate. I'm not a fan of moral ambiguity; there IS such a thing as right and wrong. When faced with something so blatantly wrong as hate, being vociferous in your opposition isn't a bad thing. In fact, I would say that it's morally necessary, despite what division may be the result. The real problem is deciding where the line is drawn. Where does it become more harmful than helpful?
