Top Ten Things People Get Discriminated For

Discrimination is a violation of Human Rights, but is still prevalent in society.

The Top Ten

1 Race

My friends, you are all awesome. If someone is racist to you, ignore them they aren't true and they aren't worth it. - PrincessKiana

They are just jealous creeps who think they are funny. **** those racists - jmepa1234

I don't get who would hate people just because of their skin color! - RiverClanRocks

I got called a 'Black B' because I was talking to my sister on a bus. People are just ignorant.

2 Religion

I think that everyone can live wherever and however they want. They should also be aloud to have the Religion in which they belong/want to be. I don't understand how people don't understand that

This could be the negative effect of governments who very strictly impose state religion.

It causes Wars. Why cause Wars because of what someone believes? - jmepa1234

Christians and Catholics really are not discriminated against. I mean, sure they were in Ancient Greece and Rome, but certainly not since then. Atheists used to have no rights whatsoever if they didn't hide their true non belief

3 Sex

I don't plan on having a baby, ever. If people think that makes me useless, screw them.

Men aren't as discriminated. Lucky me. - Therandom

I've never realized, but so many badasses are male a not female. And if given the option, I'll pick male in games, because I feel like it's moi. - Therandom

5 Ethnicity

Sorry I'm Stupid. What is this? - jmepa1234

What's stupid about not knowing this word? It's pretty much like a legal term used in court/historical articles. Maybe you've just heard of the word "minority race". That's fine.

Isn't this the same as race? - RiverClanRocks

This is the reason behind all the ethnic cleansings and killings.

I've been called a Nazi Jew for being part Polish, German, and ethnic Jewish (its my moms side) I've also been called white ass, along with people whispering about me being a Catholic. My family reciebed similar discrimonation over the years and had hardships.

6 Sexuality

Why does being Gay or Bisexual matter? I drew a Bi/Lesbian couple and their names are Selene and Rachel. #TeamLGBTQ - PrincessKiana

I know two gay couples and they are like family to me. - AnonymousChick

Not if your hetero like moi. I don't discriminate, just stating facts. - Therandom

7 Mental Disabilities

Don't you like it how people use a disease affecting someone, as a insult towards another person?

Ahh, don't you just love it when people nowadays use autism as an insult?

8 National Origin

Just because I'm American doesn't mean I'm racist. - RiverClanRocks

Just because you're Asian doesn't mean you're uncivilized.

In some cases, a fandom attraction (MLP, for example) will usually be incorrectly interpreted to be correlated to another personal decision (In this case, Homosexuality).

Discrimination against left-handed people is mostly neglected because people do not think it's a big deal, but some children experience beatings in school just because of writing with their left hand.
