”Equality” DOES NOT mean “we are all the same” and that’s it and we’re all just one big boring grey blob of human with no differences whatsoever.
Equality means acknowledging, celebrating, and respecting our diversity. Basically realizing that humans can be different and not being a dick about it.
We’re not trying to be special little snowflakes.
People of Color exist whether you like it or not.
People of varying sexual orientations exist whether you wanna see it or not.
People who do not fall into the gender binary exist whether you like it or not.
I mean sure, it doesn’t “matter” per se, but it’s still there.
