What does "equal" mean?


  • 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.

Everyone knows dictionaries are the propaganda of the right-wing reactionary.

All spellings and definitions are equally valid.

Ask the motherfucking QCA.

"In 2007, 22% of the women’s prison population were female foreign prisoners and 13% of the men’s prison population were male foreign nationals."

At least the authorities are competent enough to ensure that some males and females go to men's and women's prisons respectively.

You can see the system's not completely fucked.

"The majority of offenders brought to justice are given non-custodial sentences – 97% of all women offenders and 92% of all men offenders."

So, in other words 3% of women are given custodial sentences and 8% of men - so surely there should be a drive to equalise these numbers? We need more women in prison, not less!

(ignoring that each case is unique, and that we have judges and juries to determine guilt levels and appropriate sentences... why not just let them do the job that they're there for?)

From the BBC

"Britain's first purpose-built jail for women, which has been designed to be less intimidating for prisoners, has been unveiled...

The prison has a mother and baby unit where women can keep their children with them until the age of 18 months.

Prison director Janine McDowell said: "The prison has been very much designed with women prisoners in mind and their needs. It's been designed to be as least oppressive as possible and as attractive as it can be."

That doesn't sound like equal treatment with male prisoners to me. Why can't we be sent to nicer jails as well?

The perversion of language and family are tools of Fabians/Marxists/communists, the goal being to pervert the culture - at which point, the State becomes Master.

They have to make their perversions "acceptable" to the masses, so they dress it up as "social justice".
