← It can be right to discriminate against the religious

You don't choose your race, sexuality, or gender, and they don't affect how well you do your job. But you do choose your religion - and there are instances in which it will make it impossible for you to do a job properly. If you are a burqua-wearing Muslim, you can't enter Miss Great Britain.


A bit sloppy. Gender can also be an important impediment to entering Miss Great Britain.
