The equality of outcome lunacy.

Standard

Equality of opportuity is a praiseworthy policy. Any decent state has this enshrined in law. What is not praiseworthy is seeking to enforce equality of outcome. If group X comprises 50 per cent of the population it is rash to assume that they must also comprise 50 per cent of those who wish to pursue a certain occupation, that they have 50 per cent of the talent for the said occupation and further than they must rise to hold 50 per cent of the top posts in the said field.*

Nursing has always been a female dominated occupation. In the United Kingdom it has not been presumed that as many males wish to do this as females. There is no reason to guess that this is so. I do not know it to be bogus but the evidence suggests so. WHY IS it in every society in every era more women than men have followed this occupation? Could it be that more females are drawn thereto and women; on the whole, have a greater aptitude for it? Now the government is offering bursaries to attract more males into nursing. This is daft, unfair and a waste of money. It is just as foolish, profligate and pernicious as offering bursaries for women to become engineers. *This social engineering is deluded and pernicious. So many able candidates will be discriminated against just to achieve race and gender targets. The latest inanity from the UK GOvernment is that men and women can change gender by declaration. It appears to be a quick fix to the gender imbalance/.!
