Part of the beauty of ‘equality’ is that it either is or it isn’t; there is no middle ground.
Any time someone makes a qualification (and it’s usually for political reasons), all I hear is “All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others” – and I switch off.
Take the recent massacre of LGBTI party-goers in Orlando, for instance. Politicians are telling us it was an attack on all of us. I’d swear those same politicians think the LGBTI demographic isn’t equal enough to marry.
Thanks, George Orwell.
