What is your metric for determining when we have reached Equality Aka? What is the end game of equality with your definition, basically, how will we determine that the genders are equal?AkaDad said:Equalitycarnex said:Not to be rude but I do have one important fact to state here.AkaDad said:That's the thing about equality, it doesn't have different meanings. Equal is equal. Men and women getting paid the same for the same job. Straight and gay marriage, and so forth.
There are at least 3 ways to view equality when it comes to genders. And that is simpler case since we predominantly deal with binary division (based either on gender or sex).
Equality of opportunity
Equality of chance
Equality of results
First states standard and whoever satisfies the standard, is OK. Second sets different standards based of averages of different groups to give equal chances of participation and third doesn't care about standards but equal participation. I think you can see yourself how these are fundamentally different.
noun, plural equalities.
1.the state or quality of being equal; correspondence in quantity, degree, value, rank, or ability.
Why don't you give examples of what you're talking about.
