Petition Tag - sexist
I have learnt about prejudice before and I think that it is completely wrong. I am very hurt when people are prejudiced against me. I am very shocked to discover that only certain types of prejudice such as racism and sexism are illegal.
It is now time that everyone understood and recognised that there is good and bad in everything and that there is a difference between what people CAN do and what they WILL do. I am always very nervous of prejudice and no one deserves to be afraid of being harassed because of who or what they are. I know some people who are prejudiced against pit bull type dogs because they have had bad previous experiences with them. Even this I cannot understand. They should be better educated to know that there is good and bad in everything.
I have heard of others who have bad experiences with Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs, and still hold nothing against them. Any dog of any breed can be trained to be nice, whatever their nature or original purpose. I once knew a border collie who wouldn't have known a sheep from a cow because she had never been trained to herd animals. Every day, I fear prejudice and I get even more strongly against it. I cannot understand nor tolerate ANY prejudice whatsoever. Children and young people should be better educated so that they grow up tolerating all religions, races, nationalities and types of people, as well as dog breeds. A better way of dealing with dog attacks on children would be to make socialization classes mandatory for all dog owners. This would also create more jobs as not everyone would be able to afford these classes so the government would have to set up their own classes and pay the people who own the places and those who run the classes. This would not be that hard to enforce because if enough signs and posters were placed regarding the importance of dog socialization the general public would report those who did not take their dogs.
Another idea would be to make it mandatory that children in primary schools are taught how to approach dogs properly. They should always ask the owner before touching a strange dog/s, and even if they let them stroke their dog/s, they should always put their hand out for the dog to sniff first. Never stare into a dog's eyes as this is a sign of aggression. Some dogs do not like to be petted on the head so unless you know the animal well you should never touch its head as it can appear to be frightening to the dog. If a dog chases you or growls at you, you should not run or scream because then he'll be more likely to chase you. The best thing to do is to just ignore him and, if possible, crouch down to show that you are not a threat.
Back onto the topic, how would YOU like it if people were hateful against your religion? Whoever said "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" was talking out of his or her armpit. Words can and do hurt people. Black people do get offended when they are called "n*****" and foreigners do get offended when they are called "p****". Despite rumours and myths, most prisoners are not gypsies or travellers. Some of them are bad, some of them are good. Some of them steal, some don't. Some drop litter, some don't. No one should be judged by anything other than their own personal character.
Prejudice can be stopped, or at least reduced, by education!

Family Guy is NO LONGER FUNNY! American Dad has never been. And the Cleveland Show should never have been started. It is Offensive. The Offensive Sarah Palin's family joke. Peter's horse breeder and stewie eating cereal with Horse Sperm. Bonnie being pregnant from 1999 until 2008. Meg being the butt of every joke and abused, made fun of, kicked around. etc. etc.
There is nothing funny in American Dad to begin with. NOTHING! The Cleveland Show is a sloppy, piece of garbage thrown together so stereotypically and racist it should never have aired in the first place.
Each Tuesday, and on school outings, all students of Carver Christian High School are asked to wear the formal uniform. This includes a white school shirt, the burgundy created sweater, black dress shoes and socks, for men black dress pants, and for females the school kilt.
The separation between the male and female uniform is both unnecessary and unjust. The purpose of a formal day and school uniform is to, "Assist in creating a positive learning environment that is free of distractions and disruptions and to encourage students to represent the school in a positive light while fostering a sense of community." This goal is not being met if female students are being forced to dress differently on formal days.
Many female students are being forced to feel uncomfortable, and feel as if they are being exploited. This is not fair, as no school should make important members of the student body feel like they are not welcome.
All female students of Carver Christian High School should have the option to wear Halpern's black dress pants on formal days.
The background to this petition is to stop the scout and guiding association being sexist.
Point is that girls can go to scouts and do Quazar and paintballing e.t.c so why should girls in the guiding movement not be allowed to do it too? There is no difference. I say bring an end to the sexist behavior in the scouting and guiding movements.
Some rap music is really perverted and makes girls sound bad. It's pretty much all about sex, girls, and money. I know some rap is pretty good and has a positive message. But, I can't stand it.
It is filled with sexism. Making girls sound like sluts. I suggest that this music be banned and only keep the clean rap.
James K. Johnson a student of Ralph H. Poteet High school wants to get rid of the sexist rule against males regarding earrings and the hair cutting policy.
The rule made by the Mesquite ISD board of trustees is ridiculous and has nothing whatsoever to do with the students' learning abilities. It is a mere sexist rule against males that should be gone.
