Abolishing the Stigma of Discrimination
Abolishing the Stigma of Discrimination
Why this petition matters
In this time of crisis, we didn't value our human rights because everyone has their own perspective, opinions, and many more. Especially to our LGBTQ+ community they are experiencing discrimination in many ways. They didn’t even treated equally in our society because of their chosen gender. They are also humans who deserve to be loved and respected by us. A lot of us are experiencing discrimination and inequality because of their races, skin color, age, gender, physical appearance and many more. And because of it these kind of people who are experiencing this are having emotional and psychological breakdown thinking that they are not part of our society. Discrimination impacts a lot of people negatively; it promotes unequal access to respect and acceptance. We are accountable of every action we do and every word we say, we should be mindful of anything we say and be considerate to other people. Each and everyone of us can be that voice to the unheard voices of the people who experience discrimination, start the right actions, be that image of strength to the many. Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Laws prohibiting third-party discrimination against persons must be enacted. In addition, the government must take steps to promote equality and remove barriers that hinder some groups of people from exercising their rights on an equal footing with others. All human rights are based on the prohibition of discrimination, which is a legal requirement. Equality, Generally, an ideal of uniformity in treatment or status by those in a position to affect either. Acknowledgment of the right to equality often must be coerced from the advantaged by the disadvantaged. Equality of opportunity was the founding creed of our society, but equality among all peoples and between the sexes has proved easier to legislate than to achieve in practice. Social or religious inequality is deeply ingrained in some cultures and thus difficult to overcome. Government efforts to achieve economic equality include enhancing opportunities through tax policy, subsidized training and education, redistributing wealth or resources, and preferential treatment of those historically treated unequally (see affirmative action). See also civil rights movement; feminism; gay rights movement; human rights; Universal Declaration of Human Right Gender bias is undermining our social fabric and devalues all of us. It is not just a human rights issue; it is a tremendous waste of the world’s human potential. By denying women equal rights, we deny half the population a chance to live life at its fullest. Political, economic and social equality for women will benefit all the world’s citizens. Together we can eradicate prejudice and work for equal rights and respect for all.
Sometimes it may be necessary to treat people differently to achieve equality. This is because differences between people may make it difficult for them to enjoy their rights without support. Different treatment may not amount to prohibited discrimination if the criteria for the differentiation are reasonable and objective and if the aim is to achieve a purpose which is legitimate under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. We are all involved when it comes to discrimination, no one escapes this kind of thing. In this cruel world, they will notice everything about you even though you're not doing anything. But let's just accept the fact that this is the real world. In these modern time, we need to enlighten our body and mind when it comes to this kind of topic, we have to be sensitive and be more careful on the things comes to our mouth we have to think twice or even thrice to make sure that we are not hurting anybody. As a student, I also experience being discriminated against by other people hearing trashy words coming out from their mouth, saying things that make me feel uncomfortable and awkward so, I want to break the stigma and be more professional and educate ourselves let's start in from our home, educate your child or even your family when it comes to this sensitive topic. Everyone Deserves Respect, Love, Care, and feel safe in their environment, stop discrimination let's start it today.
