Is discriminating against those that discriminate itself a form of discrimination?

There's only two things I can't stand in this world. Those who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Ahhh but if I do it is perfectly valid and ethical.

I think it is perfectly understandable to discriminate against those that practice discrimation :wink:

Well, I never said anything about valid or ethical, it is discrimination. Not only that, but then if you discriminate against discriminators, you have to accept a more complex system unless you think you should be discriminated against for your discrimination.
