Minority status in the UK, how to get it, who are the arbiters and what are the advantages?

Recommended Posts

So what is gained by being a member of a minority? Who decides what constitutes a protected minority? Is there a list somewhere? Can anyone join a minority? Which is the most advantageous minority to join?

This is how I see it :- 

To be gained :-

Kid gloves treatment by the media, police and courts to the point of almost, but not quite, being above the law.

Occasional advantages in obtaining employment for large organisations with HR teams looking to give themselves SJW points. For small organisations you may be at a disadvantage.

Preferential treatment by the social housing and benefits systems.

 

Who decides what is a protected minority?  Is there a list?

No idea - the SJW Twitterati? How did pikeys get the status FFS?

 

Can anyone join a minority?

In some cases it seems so, others not. If I buy a caravan and have no permanent home, do I have pikey status? If I declare myself a woman on Thursdays like the politician who did so, it seems I don't have trans status.  

 

Which is the most advantageous minority to join? 

Well here it gets really tricky. If I become a born-again Christian, get shiny eyes  and wear crucifixes in the workplace(or even just the crucifix), apparently I am not in a minority but am oppressing others and making them uncomfortable. But if I wear a hijab, I am in a minority with all the advantages. Even if I live in an area where most women wear a hijab, and am a member of probably the most actively practiced religion in the UK.

 

So does anyone have any references to the parts of UK law that cover these issues? Can anyone explain it without being too tinfoil hatted?

I have seen no benefit since coming out as a trans lesbian.

Maybe I need to go nick something from a supermarket or drive a lorry on a pavement? Perhaps apply for some kind of grant? I assumed that once I came out that I would be presenting Countryfile or interviewing Jordan Peterson within a week.

I have a kippah somewhere in a draw but I have a feeling that wearing it in public in the UK would get me special treatment of the wrong type.

And don't put a menorah in the window. They magically attract bricks.

I wouldn’t leave it there too long.  Even though they are smoked, they still have a shelf life and nothing worse than gone off fish.

Have you the "all inclusive, and not very racist" Corbyn party?

Maybe some of us could get tax exemption like Aborigines if we can prove settled status on all family branches back a few centuries.

I'm sure I might be able to prove inbred idiot status. the So-Called BBC is good at reminding me how inferior I am to those of mixed race.

They actually did a DNA test in my area because they thought we were inbred enough to have anti bodies to Bubonic plague of 1666.

      If you need an campaigner/activist for a few days you could try Munroe Bergdorf.
      She's got lots of experience of being an activist for a few days.  Her specific speciality is in coming up with something that'll make her go away after a short period of time.  It doesn't matter what your cause, or how inclusive, right-on or tolerant your supporters -- she'll work something out.  And don't worry about the messy details getting out -- no matter how she eventually goes, she'll shout so loudly about it all being due to transphobia that no-one will dare look any closer.
      [https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48572955 -- Transgender activist Munroe Bergdorf says she is "unbelievably sad" that the NSPCC has cut ties with her, days after she revealed she was Childline's "first LGBT+ campaigner".]

      Seems the "let's all love everybody" infantile level of ideology can't cope with competing claims of rights.  Fisticuffs next year maybe?
       
       
      Members of lesbian and feminist group Get The L Out demanded to march behind the rainbow flag, which marks the start of the event, organisers said.
      The group believes lesbian rights are attacked by the trans movement.
      Pride said their behaviour on Saturday was "shocking and disgusting".
       
       
      Patricia Curtis, of TransPALS said: "It's disappointing that anti-trans activists decided to hijack the front of a parade, an insult to all the hardworking staff in the NHS whose place they stole.
      "But their vile stunt failed. London is a place that doesn't tolerate hate."
      A "Get The L Out" spokesman said the group encourages lesbians everywhere to leave the LGBT movement and form their own independent movement.
      "We oppose the transition of young lesbians on the basis that their appearances or behaviour does not conform to socially accepted images of women.
      "The trans movement is a conservative movement which reinforces sexist sex stereotypes."

      So student union groups are already excluding gay men as being too "privileged"; now you're going to have lesbians excluded for being "transphobic".
      There has long been this patronising attitude from the establishment of waving a flag for any right-on cause but the trans movement is shattering this pretty yet naive rainbow flag into a shower of multicoloured splinters.
      Love the pacifying and inclusive language from the spokesperson.
       
      And because somebody always posts the same picture on these type of threads I will get it out if the way on the OP:
