    So.... no one should have the fact that they were born into a rich family held against them?

    What about the qualities you noted that are a post-birth choice?

    Did you choose to be born into a poor, middle class or rich family.

    This topic isn't rocket science.

    Either you believe that you had a choice in all of the characteristics listed or you didn't. If you didn't then you can't blame others who have characteristics that you selectively don't like

    You didn't answer either of my questions.
    And - what do you mean by "blame"?

    You said "NOBODY" gets to choose. And here you refute that by pointing out minorities and exceptions to the rule.

    In reality, most people get to choose those features.

    The premise of the thread...CIRCUMSTANCE OF BIRTH, meaning there are so many factors that we don't have a choice over when we're born.

    My pre-birth preferences list is a satirical spoof at people somehow believe that's how they acquired immutable characteristics and all of the environmental elements that they arrived in at birth.

    The purpose of this thread illustrates that we are born who we are without some personal selection method made before we are born...or by any predetermined means. We Never Got a Choice...EVER...


    Bigots and racists believe that all immutable characteristics are a type divine selection. Whatever they specifically possess in the way of immutable characteristics are divinely created superior over all others.

    Circumstance of birth is simple to understand. As far as I know, I didn't get to pick any of my physical characteristics before birth. I didn't get to pick my parents. I didn't get to pick the country in which I was born. And I didn't get to pick my sexual orientation. I was born with it.

    NO, I didn't learn how to be a heterosexual.

    Did you choose all of your physical attributes, you parents, where you would be born, etc. PRIOR TO BIRTH?

    IF YOU DIDN'T...nobody else did. If nobody else did...then how can any person be a bigot or a racist...IF NOBODY had a CHOICE!

    Haha, that's a hilarious one.

    You don't choose, it's your Father who sends you to school and decides where you belong. It's that simple.

    Not before you're born...you don't choose.

    Now, if you get to choose your father...groovy...you are indeed a very special person.

    Not father but Father.

    He decides where you would learn your lessons best. And makes you yellow, black, red, white, etc.

    This is all straw.
