White, straight, able-bodied man? You can’t attend equality summit

A lecturers’ union is refusing to let its officers take part in debates at an equality summit if they are white, straight, able-bodied men.

The equality conference of the University and College Union said that members must declare their ‘protected characteristic’ – whether they are gay, disabled, female or from an ethnic minority – when applying to attend.

Activists say that it means representatives who do not qualify cannot participate in all of the discussions – even though they have been elected by their union branch.

Personally I consider that a plus…

  • It’s definitely a plus that we weren’t invited to the “equality summit” — it’s tacit recognition that we are not equal to them. They must think that we’re superior to them — they realize that only a feeble-minded individual needing special “protection” would voluntarily subject himself to Marxist propaganda.

  • What a bunch of self-serving mental tripe.

    Thank you liberals.

      Yeah. You would think equality would be a big, flat, absolutely level surface…

      No, it’s the only group you can actively discriminate against.

    A “summit” ?? Is that where you reach peak equality ? Apparently, not all equality is the same.

    • Clausewitz

      Some are more equal than others. I think I read that somewhere.
