Generalised on something you are born with and cant do anything about, not on how you are.

As well as age and marital status too.Loge said:A way of saying different genders represent different risks.
Not if the insurance companies could show through actuarial tables that certain ethnic groups show a greater risk.Blackheart said:The ACLU would be up the the faces of insurance companies.
Yeah, imagine the adverts for that! especially if they were based around the themes used for women - wonder why they dont do it!!Chip NoVaMac said:Not if the insurance companies could show through actuarial tables that certain ethnic groups show a greater risk.
No, it's not right.Mass Hysteria said:Is this analogy right or am I extreme ranting due to tiredness
You are not far off, at least here in the US. Our age, race, and sex discrimination laws are there; but it is hard to prove. A company only has to prove they hired the best candidate. And as long as there is some diversity in that workplace, then all is well.Mass Hysteria said:Yeah, imagine the adverts for that! especially if they were based around the themes used for women - wonder why they dont do it!!
I cant believe that big companies get away with this without a fuss. Could I use the same criteria if say employing someone? for example:
- sorry love, youre female you see, and therefore statistically youre going to drop a sprog at sometime in the near future and want loads of time off, so im going to give the job to a man instead. Dont take it personally, I dont know if he's good enough for the position, all I know is hes male and youre not.

Still, shouldn't complain, cant see em putting the price for men down, probably just put the womens up in line and call it being fair!
