What is equality?
Equality in my opinion is everyone being treated equally regardless of sex, race, age, whatever it may be... we are all equal and should have the same opportunities as everyone else.
But what happens in reality?
I'm going to pick on the women here because I am one... we have women only groups, we want more jobs for women, we want equal pay, we want to be equal to men.
How do we feel, or how would we feel, if there were men only groups?
Do we deserve the job just because we are women?
Are we capable of the job and are we worth the money?
What equality means to me is what it says... EQUAL!
These recruitment drives by large Companies, stipulating that they want 20% more women employees - NO! This I do not agree with because the only box they tick is that they are female! Give the jobs to the best applicant regardless of sex.
The economy will suffer by recruiting in this way and in my eyes it's clear discrimination against men, this current stance by women is in danger of driving an even bigger wedge between society.
If Companies ignore the best candidate for the job because they are male and wanted a female just to tick boxes then how is that not treating men how the women are currently being treated and fighting so hard to overcome... these Companies could be employing the second, third or even fourth best candidate just because they are a woman! This is crazy and in my eyes, clear discrimination against men - we are actually in danger of going the opposite way.
There was a recent ground breaking case of discrimination within the Cheshire Police force against a white heterosexual male who was denied his dream job, he was a strong candidate for the role yet he didn't tick any minority boxes... and so it begins. Click here to read the story
Women should be joining the groups already established, they should only be awarded the job if they are capable and as good, if not better, than the male applicants and should be paid accordingly. It would appear that women are not looking for equality but discrimination in their favour. This is not equality this is CHARITY.
So lets stop flinging our bras in the air and start earning our place in this world by hard work and recognition of our efforts.
