  • you can hide your sexual orientation if you so desired
    but most of the time you can not hide your race

  • For the record, I accept everyone no matter their color, religion (or lack thereof), or sexual orientation.

    However, i'm going to venture to guess that some are going to say that you can't choose your race, and you can choose your sexual orientation.

    I however see both equally discriminating, and there is no difference. You can polish a turd a 1000 different ways, but it's still going to be a turd.

  • Discrimination is discrimination. The ability to "hide" an aspect doesn't mean the discrimination isn't there, it only lessens the chances of you to be sought out as a direct target of that discrimination.

  • No difference.

  • It's wrong to discriminate for either of those reasons. There may be different reasons WHY someone is prejudiced about the two, but either way, it's still wrong.
