Taking Discrimination to the End of the Earth By James Reed

     If one is not all for discrimination about everything, recovering a lost sense of style and taste, or maybe because you have had a gutful of this woke politically correct bs, then maybe this one will help. Now, wanting a “happy” hairdresser is discriminatory, somehow contrary to the new inquisition of wokeland:

“A hair salon says it was told by a job center it couldn't run an advertisement recruiting a “happy” stylist because the word is “discriminatory” against unhappy people. Alison Birch listed a job ad looking for a part-time qualified hairdresser at her AJ's Unisex Hair Salon in Stroud, England. The position called for someone with five years’ experience of working in a salon, who is "confident in barbering as well as all aspects of hairdressing.” And the advertisement stated, "This is a busy, friendly, small salon, so only happy, friendly stylists need apply." But on Wednesday, Birch says she received a call from her local job center informing her they could not run her ad because the word “happy” is considered “discriminatory.” Birch claims the job center told her that the advertisement may make some people feel they cannot apply if they do not consider themselves to be a “happy” person.”

     Yet consider this reductio ad absurdum: if all discrimination is bad, then discrimination against those who discriminate must therefore be bad too, which is self-refuting. So, their philosophy of wokeism is internally incoherent! I got this idea from Charles Taylor; thanks Chuck!
