It is fair to say that when we hear this word 'discriminate'/'discrimination', most of us think, as it is usually associated with a negative act or by default brings about some kind of negative connotation. For instance: Regarding race; if one were to say, 'I only date, or hire my own'. 'Own' as in another from the same race. Observers would view or acknowledge that as something negative. Few would not argue with that as a conclusion. That's discrimination, right? Okay. Now, lets take a woman who only date men taller than her. Is she not discriminating? Would we view or acknowledge that as negative? If not, why not? Similar can be said for men: "My lady gotta have a big butt and a disproportionately small waist". Something to those affects. Why is it then, for the most part, socially accepted to discriminate based on height and or body dimensions yet not socially accepted to discriminate on race? Another thought: Does this say something about allowing others to take primacy over these words? ...Your thoughts.
