Either you disagree with him and don't think everyone shuold have equal access, or you agree with something you're trying to highligh as woke - which is it?

If you think it's misconstrued, then put the record straight.
if one was male white and struggling in the US, it would sound like Biden either assumes they have as much privilege as old rich white dudes like Biden or deserve to be back of the queue

"Priority" to certain groups cannot go in the same sentence as "equal access" unless one has fully bought into the fraudulent narrative of "privilege".

Biden and the Democrats have been playing the race card and identity politics ever since Biden bounced back in the preliminaries last year.

Politics has turned the lofty ideal of equality into the ugly reality of resentments of other people's achievements — and a feeling that the world owes you something, while you owe nobody anything, not even common decency.

They'll create havoc, using the name of their god in vain how dare they!


Can you imagine all the Islamists complaining that a storm has been named after Muhammad!

So.... You deliberatey misconsrtrue what Biden said.
I explain it to you (see below)
You accuse me of misconstruing you.
Then you deliberately misconstrue waht Biden said in exactly the same way... for the second time...?

Pretty obvious that his priority is the equality and not the business being the equality, but you knew that already.

The priority is not people - the priority is his intention.

Council is slammed for 'ridiculous and historical wokery' over plans to remove a statue of a British war hero – with official report claiming it 'impacts anybody who does not define themselves in binary gender terms'

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-war-hero.html

the statue had attracted public debate in part due to references to colonial campaigns on its plinth which 'sought to advance British imperialist interests in other countries'.

An equality impact assessment read: 'The General Buller statue represents the patriarchal structures of empire and colonialism which impact negatively on women and anyone who does not define themselves in binary gender terms.

'The consultation will need to ensure that the views of women, transgender and non-binary people are captured and given due weight.' The impact assessment also noted the need to consult with minority ethnic groups on the statue.

Might as well just get rid of every statue ever so, if the non-binary crowd are/could get offended...

If I was to look at statues like that, the only plus I'd have on them is that, as a male, I have bigger tits than some of the female ones.

There was a "fig leaf campaign" in Medieval Europe to cover the nudity in historical artworks. Metal fig leaves nailed on statues or painted on paintings.
Hundreds of years later Queen Victoria had a detachable fig leaf put on her plaster cast replica of David.
Plus ca change...

Wonder will there be a demand from the un-busy-at-work woke crowd to have the Dublin Spire removed next? Because one of them thought it looked like a phallic symbol?
