Theoldguy, you nailed it.

No one is seen going ballistic about this insidious form of selectivism.

Catri, OP, please step forward to claim your Castanet Coconut of the Month Award. Cheers, applause. :up:

nothing wrong with being open minded as long as your brains don't fall out.

There wasn't a mention in the ad that the place was furnished and may not even have carpeting.
But point taken about the "odor"
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

years ago when I was looking for work online (mid '90's to 2000), almost every ad, including Federal Government websites, had a disclaimer at the bottom of the ad. It read like this :

"Preference given to women and visible minorities."

Being a middle aged, white guy I felt discriminated against. But hey guess what? There is no such thing as reverse discrimination.

Good Grief - please don't pop popcorn in any home then, the smell is hard to get rid of.

reverse discrimination

(in the context of the allocation of resources or employment) the practice or policy of favoring individuals belonging to groups known to have been discriminated against previously.

Are there any known cases where this was successfully held up in a court or tribunal?
Nobody wants to hear your opinion. They just want to hear their own opinion coming out of your mouth.

A poorly-vented cooking area means lingering odours. Why some people don’t use a working fan is a mystery. Also a mystery is why a landlord would not have proper venting.

I believe that exterior venting is a requirement for a legal suite.

Wow... Umm, gotta ask: Since when did racism exist on a sliding scale?

Let's say I were Southeast Asian -- am I not capable of being as racist toward other Southeast Asians as someone of Caucasian, South Asian, or Hispanic descent?

: discrimination against whites or males (as in employment or education)


A 1995 report published by the US Labour Department showed that between 1990 and 1994 there were less than 100 cases citing 'reverse discrimination' involving federal and appeals court decisions. Notably, the vast majority of these cases were found to be qithout merit, ie. Verdict: '*bleep*'.

Roughly 1 in 50, or 2%, involved Caucasian men alleging sexual, racial or national origin discrimination; even less were of Caucasian women charging racial discrimination.

Let's not allow this to distract from one of the glaring notations on the definition you provided: "First used, 1964".

Think of the ideas/values of the time for a minute.

Reverse Discrimination: est. 1964
Created BY whites, FOR whites?

No surprise here. I've seen so much discrimination in Kelowna as reflected in help wanted ads and so forth. Wanted young person. Looking for waitress. I would say that most of you reading this our prejudice in one of or the other. Its that bad here. Americans? Blacks, Hispanics, all not as good as YOU. AYE?

Sorry but there is no comparison. If there is to you, I accept that. People perceive senses differently.

I'm white. Personally I have no problem with an Ad stating 'no whites' or 'females only'. It's what the owner/landlord wants so why not look at it like he just saved you the time and effort of applying. A manager at Tim Hortons might have 15 male and 2 female employees and simply want to get some more feminine touch thrown into the work environment. I have no problem with him saying 'female only'.

We shouldn't be forcing a landlord or employer to hire/rent to a person he doesn't want. Let's stop being so overly sensitive and let the world function without putting stipulations on everything we do. This doesn't mean people can start calling people racist names or whatever, racism should never be tolerated.

^^^ You may not be racist or prejudice, but you are ill informed. You may not have a problem with what you stated, but the law of Canada does. Period. You cannot hire based on sex, age, religion, ethnicity. So you are welcome to it not bothering you, but it doesn't matter, because the law disagrees with you and everyone like you.
