I refuse to believe that I am wrong for believing that I should treat anyone else, regardless of color, race, origin, gender, age, what the freak ever ridiculous criterion you choose to insert here, I REFUSE to believe anything other than that I should treat them exactly the same – EXACTLY the same as me.
I believe it is an INSULT to treat them with special deference, prostrating myself on the altar of historical guilt for which I am not guilty in order to make someone else feel special, somehow superior. Idjits, that is the entire premise of equality – that people are equal, not exalted above someone else for whatever spurious, extraneous reason you choose to insert. Not to treat someone equally is an INSULT, an acknowledgement of their inherent inferiority. I don’t believe anyone is inferior to me, nor, for that matter, do I believe anyone is superior to me.
That, God bless America, is EQUALITY. And I don’t give a rat’s behind what the rest of the world thinks on this issue. Anything else, anything LESS, isn’t equality, and should be soundly condemned by any thinking person (and I guess that eliminates a whole lot of people who might otherwise qualify as people).
