- be identical or equivalent to; "One dollar equals 1,000 rubles these days!"
- be equal to in quality or ability; "Nothing can rival cotton for durability"; "Your performance doesn't even touch that of your colleagues"; "Her persistence and ambition only matches that of her parents"
- having the same quantity, value, or measure as another; "on equal terms"; "all men are equal before the law"
The last example is strangely apt, because I see that our favourite "Women are Equal" cuntwaft is looking to keep women out of prison. As Ross says, this is prima facie evidence that she planned her crime rampage.
But really, why do we allow this abuse of our beautiful language by these venal fucks? In this case, "Women's Equality" actually means "preferential treatment of women, just because they're women". The "Equality and Human Rights Commission" actually promotes not genuine equality, but a number of different special interest groups who somehow deserve preferential treatment.
And "Human Rights" -- what crap is that? A bunch of woolly-headed non-rights designed by Eurocrats to make it sound like they have our best interests at heart while actually making it perfectly acceptable for the state to trample all over our genuine rights ... and responsibilities.
Well, you cunts: fuck you all. I don't think we need to send these motherfuckers a copy of 1984 or V for Vendetta or Animal Farm this year. Let's send the useless sacks of shit a fucking dictionary instead.
