You are your grievance.

You are your grievance.

There are so many special-interest groups these days, that must - by law - be specially catered-to, that it gets to be something of a minefield for the rest of us.

Such groups of individuals have one thing in common: They all demand special treatment.
But how are the rest of us supposed to know who they are, in order to afford them this special treatment? By the time one finds out they are members of a special protected group, it may already be too late.

It would, perhaps, be a good idea to have such individuals tattooed on their foreheads with whatever specific grievance it is that must be taken into account by everybody else.
That way, roving gangs of normal people would know to avoid them, altogether, lest they become criminals without realizing it.

This way, there would be a price, of sorts, to pay, for that special protection afforded by law, while at the same time affording protection to the innocent who may otherwise fall foul of legislation.

Not a bad idea. You'd see people with tattoos proclaiming things like:
Gay. Muslim. New Age. Goth. Religious Nut. Disabled. Punk. Short. Old. Feminist. Ethnic. Nutcase. Victim.

That way, they would be safe from everybody else, while everybody else would be safe from them. Nobody would be forced to wear one of these tattoos, but if one elected not to, then they would be unable to later claim that they were victims of a hate crime.

It worked for Cain.

Either way someone gets hurt. Toss innocent people into a PC minefield or visibly mark those who claim victim group affinity. I'm failing to see what progress was made by swapping around who gets the justice. It would seem the burden is on the readily offended to identify themselves as such.

Are those people who identify with special interest groups or "a cause" necessarily what they seem?  I believe that this post is marking a real phenomenon ... a phenomenon that is found in mostly the egotistical and intellectually retarded, and harmful to genuine holders of the mentioned titles who contribute to society.  This kind of self-centered vision of reality is intellectually retarded because it prevents an understanding of the forces surrounding, pervading, and giving life to our Earth and the Universe beyond.  Who could care less of anti-traditional forces claiming to be Muslim, New Age, or Fanatical?  It is nothing but folly for them because there can be nothing by complete submission without a self-centered vision and drive towards the understanding that Divinity has countless mirrors to reflect Its Rays of Guidance.
