Re: Diversity

The problem there is the number of people who actively want to discriminate based on someone else's sexuality. While true that the only thing that should matter is how well someone can do the job there still need to be protections in place to prevent discrimination. The problem is when those protections are enforced to a degree that actually discriminates against the majority.

Case in point, the police force had (have?) a nationwide policy to encourage more ethnic minorities to join. Which is fine in ethnically diverse metropolitan areas where there's a good case for increasing numbers of ethnically diverse officers. Not so good when trying to recruit for the local force in rural Wales...
