The main discrimination has been the assumption that I am female and therefore I am less than.
Although I am trying to seek a legal solution for a hate crime towards from a stranger and who is a female. But a female who has adopted the partiachial way in personality and action in the most negative sense. This person doesn't know me let alone had a conversation with me, yet, finds it easy to spread all kinds of slander, that are ruining my life, relationships and my jobs/potential employment positions.
Ah, but the USSC stated that is not a protected demographic because everybody was young once, and most people become old before dying. Since age is a ever changing thing it is not protected as in being black or female.
But that could all change now with fluid gender, and people lightning skin with creams.
Everyone in the US has some genes from Africa (i.e. they are partly "black"). Given that, and a total lack of any definitive definition of "black", why can't everyone claim whatever race is advantageous to them at the moment? It's statistically pretty likely that they have some Hispanic and even American Indian as well. Certainly most Europeans carried Asian genes from being overrun by nomads coming out of Asia.

Yes. The wrong color of skin, and lack of a vagina, resulted in discrimination. Legal, even required, but still discrimination. Also watched it happen in college because of the wrong skin color.
My son was let go from a job (at 16 years old) because (and the owner was stupid enough to state it) he wanted all girls working there rather than a mixed crew.
Did your son file a discrimination suit? I hope that he did.
