Inequality means being treated unfairly to others through no fault of your own! You can be treated unfairly by anybody, whether that be the police, society, parents, family or another figure of authority. I feel that a lot of inequality comes down to issues of stereotyping, prejudice and hierachies that people feel they belong to in society!

Inequality means being so biased on my values of life not respecting what i say and believe in

Have you had an experience of people being biased to you and not respecting you Solomon?

Inequality is when somebody’s values, customs, culture and judgements are seen to be more superior than another person’s values, customs, culture and judgements. If somebody has done something unlawful, that is completely against the law in their country, and is seen immorally wrong, then they will be in an unequal position facing the law. This is not inequality for me, people cannot just do as they please. What is inequality is where people do not have the same chances, and did not start on an unequal footing, and therefore do not have the same opportunites. Everybody deserves a right to education, clean water, a good standard of living, and access to the job market. If they do not, I think they are being treated unfairly and unequally!
(Kyle Spinks at February 26, 2016 11:35 am)
I don’t think it’s having someone’s customs and cultures seen as being more superior is unequal. English being the universal lingua franca means that everybody needs to know English, so then this could be seen as being superior and therefore not equal to other languages. I just think that English has become the practical way of communcation, I don’t think it’s superior to my home language!

Being treated unfairly by positions of authority in society is what inequality means to me! This may be because of your skin colour, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, something that is not considered the norm! This is not acceptable, and being treated unfairly and not the way you want to be treated is inequality!
(Ariel Nash at February 26, 2016 11:47 am)
To me, inequality is the unfair treatment of people and labeling them inferior due to circumstances that they have little or no control of in their lives, which makes it so much harder for them to ’go up in life’ and be seen as equal. Inequality boils down to prejudice.
(Lindsey Pipkin at February 26, 2016 11:57 am)
Unequal opportunities given to different people dependent on certain characteristics such as social class, gender, sex etc.
(Kate Rogers at February 26, 2016 12:23 pm)
Inequality is unbalanced opportunites for people to access to necessary human activities (e.g. educations, careers, and so on), which have been created both naturally and artificially.

Inequality is a fact of life. It will never go away. There are issues that society can and should address, basic human rights, an encouragement of equality of Opportunity. Inequality is also something used by social justice warriors to try to stamp out freedoms in the name of stamping out inequality. Here they promote the idea of equality of Outcome. Which is something that only will serve to destroy our humanity. Inequality, is also opportunity. Because of inequalities that exist, opportunities exist. It’s up to the individual, the community, the nation, the world, to decide what to do with those opportunities.

So do you think we should accept inequality then rather than question it and try to change it when we can?

It is almost as though children are a different species of being, does that mean their opinions don’t matter?

Children are so used to their feelings being dishonored that they may not even know how to respond to a direct question: how do you feel about something, they either give a funny look or quip and ignore, so i would say all their opinions are fruitful depending on how you value and also ask them.
(Soloman, Uganda at April 1, 2016 9:39 am)
All my opinions matter because i deserve a right and respect to what i feel
(Kirunda Faisol (Uganda) at April 1, 2016 9:40 am)

((Tusubira David (Uganda) at April 1, 2016 9:47 am)
Yes because some of the things i think are good for us are not put into action so as a child my thoughts are not of help in any meeting its better is keep silent
((Ochan Ivan (Uganda) at April 1, 2016 9:48 am)

Unfairness, treating people differently without any just/logical reason. Depriving some one of their basic rights/needs/opportunities.

We know that inequality exists and it’s affecting our society when different ideas, cultures, ethnical groups, opinions and other factors are pre-judged and some of them don’t have the same opportunities and conditions to do, express, behave or act in the way they would like to.

Discrimination. I believe in equal opportunity/talents in all, but inequality is when that talent/opportunity is cut off for some people. It is possible to create the same conditions for all

1. Opportunity Inequality – How personal circumstances – such as birthplace, gender, characteristics impact a child’s probability of accessing services (high quality education and good health care) that are necessary to succeed in life.

Mother has great love than father because she serves things equally with respect each of the child which is different from the father
(Aguma Kizito (Uganda) at February 12, 2016 9:30 am)
Afather has great love because pays my school fees and protects me than a mother will keep abusing you all the time..
(Nubu (Uganda) at February 12, 2016 9:32 am)
The time spent with the child builds a strong relationship which shows the mother has great love…
(Katushabe Moreen (Uganda) at February 12, 2016 9:34 am)
The natural bond where the child keeps breast feeding shows there is always love that is stuck from the mother that the father who will not even bother to know how the child is doing…
(Lydia(Uganda) at February 12, 2016 9:36 am)
Mothers always give nice advices, so caring cooks food which the father cant do because some dont care they are after just having names of their children than knowing how they are…. that is no LOVE
(Faima (Uganda) at February 12, 2016 9:39 am)
Mothers can never let you down even if you have wronged her or anybody because of the love she has and also remembers the pain she under goes during labor.
(Ruth (Uganda) at February 12, 2016 9:43 am)
The hard work done by the father reflects the love fathers have more then mother because they are the ones who keep toiling why because of the love, mothers just wait on…
(Emma (Uganda) at February 12, 2016 9:47 am)
To me both have great love depending on how you respect them

Girls are more likely to stay at home even if there is abuse than boys. They are taught to obey.
(Mariam (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 6:44 pm)
Is it better to stay at home where you are being abused or run away to the streets?
(Dennis (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 7:30 pm)
You need to run away to the streets because some kind person or people can find you and help you
(Sam (Uganda) at February 1, 2016 5:02 am)
You should stay home because abuse is not the last resort for life you can still find someone to talk to who can help you while at home
(Solomon (Uganda) at February 1, 2016 5:03 am)
I think looking for support at home first is best as more abuse can happen to you on the streets too, for example going to a friend, another relative, neighbour or teacher.
(Nicola (UK) at February 1, 2016 12:36 pm)
What about when they put you in jail for no other reason than being on the streets – that one is too tough

Well boys get more food but that is because they are more hard working for example digging in the garden
(Dennis (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:43 pm)
No girls are more hard working here in Uganda – we cook, clean, wash and care for the young ones
(Mariam (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:44 pm)
Boys are in the garden with more energy that is why they need more food
(Saddam (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:44 pm)
Girls dig in the garden and do the other works in the hosue
(Sarah (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:45 pm)
Girls can’t go out late at night in the community in case they get raped and have early pregnancy
(Junior (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:49 pm)
Even boys can be sexually abused by women – but boys are stronger so can go out at night without fear
(Bashir (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:51 pm)
Girls aren’t weaker than boys

Our deputy speaker in parliament is a woman and she is a very strong lady

Most of the careers like lawyers can be for boys or girls so maybe its not so mucha problem

Girls can ride motorbikes or even be bus conductors

Ladies are a source of wealth to the family through dowry
(Bashir (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:55 pm)
And boys are the heirs to the property
(David (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:56 pm)
The good thing is that if you pay the dowry the lady will be yours and not commit adultary
(Bashir (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:57 pm)
In India it is the opposite and the boy gets the dowry
(Emma (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:58 pm)
In the UK we don’t have dowrys at all anymore – it feels like you are buying the person, but a person cannot be a property of someone else. They are a human being.
(Nicola (UK) at January 31, 2016 5:59 pm)
You know you have to be careful if you shake the hands of your in-laws they can put a curse on you

I think it is a good idea that hard work pays but we don’t value all the work the same

I am going to save my money and buy my mother nice things and care for her when she is old
(Pius (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:40 pm)
Yes you should care for your mum in her old age, but not if she abused you and chased you to the streets.
(Bashir (Uganda) at January 31, 2016 5:41 pm)
Women are more hard working because many things they do involve a lot of energy
(Emma (Uganda) at February 1, 2016 5:14 am)
Probably the gap…but you can’t be angry/frustrated etc at people because they are wealthy, some of the 1% will have worked very hard for their money. And those born into wealth or inherited wealth, it’s not their fault either. All we can do is tell the wealthy about philanthropy and worthy causes and hope they choose to donate some of their money. And yes I think the bottom 57% are more wealthy, but not necessarily in terms of money…but in health, welfare etc
