Also, it is easy for those not in the target group to dismiss
the reports experiences that members of the target groups are having,
but not, in my eyes, with much credibility.
Similarly, when people question the conclusions extrapolated from
those experiences, it is too easy for supporters of sexists to accuse
people of questioning the experiences, even when they don't.
I know I am fortunate that I seldom (not never!) encounter
discrimination and am one of a large group in most partitions of my
homeland's population. That does not mean that you should discriminate
against me, or others like me, when we question a particular illogical
conclusion. "You do not experience this, so you should have no voice"
is not a sensible argument for someone arguing against discrimination.
We cannot solve the problems by perpetuating these divisions, or by
being unfair to more people. So-called "positive discrimination" is
negative discrimination against the complementary class of people and
is a problem, too. Please don't support sexism.
