After a rant like the one below I should probably say where I stand.
What matters to me about equality is, "Is it a person?"
People get treated equally until they do something to deserve unequal treatment.
The unequal treatment doesn't even have to be negative. Do me a favor and I will give your preferential treatment over a stranger.
There's a measure of injustice from me though. I admit it. Because members of particular groups have been very consistently negative towards me, I tend to treat members of those groups negatively. It's unfair that we'd start on that footing, but I will happily record you as an exception should you prove to be! Prejudice through experience is not bigotry. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
I want equal, at least the same in the eyes of the law.
The people who screech loudest about inequality don't want that. They want to have a superior position from equal. I can't abide that.
