    Hey, thanks for your reply but it doesn't really address the point I was trying to make. I disagree with equating things you can control (tattoos, clothing, hair length, etc) with things you can't control (age, race, sex, etc) when it comes to discrimination.

That's my point. I do not. All of this sort of discrimination is petty and worthless. They are all forms of discrimination that have nothing, whatsoever, to do with jobs or job performance. They don't even affect personal interactions.

You can't just say I'm not addressing your point when I'm totally addressing it. It doesn't work that way.

And then you bring up things you can control? Um... you can control religion. So, that's totally cool to discriminate against? Yeah, I'm thinking the ability to control something isn't really relevant.

    I don't think a facial blemish and a facial tattoo are in the same catergory.

And there's no valid reason for thinking this. None. At all.

    I would equate tattoos more in the realm of clothing or hair length. If I interview a guy for a job wearing a bright pink suit, I think I would be justified in holding that against him if thats not the image I want my company to project. It just shows poor judgement towards what is currently acceptable in society, just like a facial tattoo. I would feel pretty insulted if the guy then tried to equate himself with someone discriminated against due to their race, for instance.

    I think its important not to equate the two catergories.

And I think it's morally wrong for doing so.
