Apparently our RCMP are moving toward creating a 50/50 gender hiring policy. They do not want to be discriminatory in their hiring of officers to protect our citizens.
Not being discrminatory is a fine thing.
However, to use a policy that demands hiring percentages based on gender is incredibly discriminatory. In this case it is men who will be discrminated against. Hiring policies based on gender are actually guilty of prolonging and bolstering the very problem the policies are supposed to be eliminating.
When are we going to understand that until gender is no longer an issue at all, AT ALL, until it is removed from the hiring equation and hiring is based on qualifications and experience only, we will not be free of gender discriminatory hiring practises??
