edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Discrimination:
  • Add the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) to the list of discriminatory groups.
  • Add section with statistics
  • Add section on discrimination against people with mental disabilities
  • Replace "Citation Needed" tags in the Religious and the Language discrimination sections with sources so that content can be verified.
  • Add section on antisemitism
  • Add a realistic section on sex and gender discrimination- gender discrimination is not just a benign social concept, nor limited to glass ceilings. This discrimination is also focused on specific groups: women and people displaying gender characteristics not considered appropriate or “natural” in their respective contexts. There is no “natural” basis for such beliefs; discrimination is based on power struggles.

Philosophy of discrimination?[edit]

I am curious as to whether or not the page could include a section on the philosophy of discrimination that would discuss things such as, for example, what constitutes discrimination and why it is wrong (for example is affirmative action discrimination? Some would say yes because it favors people based on group membership, others might argue no because it is justified to make up for disadvantages. Is not hiring ex-convicts discrimination? Some would say yes because it is assuming that committing a crime means they will do it again, others would say no because the acts a person has done may be relevant to their job. Is finding short men unattractive discrimination?). I was thinking about this after reading the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy's discussion on it and I thought that it might be worth adding. Would that be the case? And if so, should it go under the "Theories" section, given this section itself already sort of discusses this (it refers to egalitarian social theories arguing equality should prevail, which is philosophical). I thought it would also be useful for providing information on what constitutes discrimination (the same section also links to the speciesism page, which also includes debate on the topic, for example) as discussed not just in law but in philosophy too.

New modeling section[edit]

Right now it looks like just a couple quick soapbox rants which should not be in an article. Will it be better soon? North8000 (talk) 11:37, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Can you explain a bit more about what you mean - I think I understand but could you give examples? Sdio7 (talk) 20:56, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Someone took it out (and I think rightly so). But, the entire section consisted of just 2 short somewhat incoherent and off topic sentences. I don't know how one could derive examples from that. North8000 (talk) 22:50, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
