Talk:Reverse discrimination

Jump to: navigation, search

I don't understand the "actual example" given (non-sarcastic quotation marks). Should I interpret it as the doctor only hiring nurses because he wants eye candy. I then still don't see why it would be justified firing someone over bullshit reasons... I mean, was it justified? Did the writer of that section think it was justified? It's not clear to me from the context.

One could also make the example a hypothetical one, like "a doctor who only hires female nurses because he thinks he has a chance of getting in their pants" is a good example of discrimination happening oppositely to how traditionally is expected. I feel like the example gives a lot of extra information that is irrelevant to the concept of reverse discrimination which only confuses.

Just tell me if I'm the only one who scratched his head at that section. — Unsigned, by: Antaios / talk / contribs
