'Diversity' Rules at 'Rights' Mausoleum

Looking for employment? Don't mind relocating to Winnipeg? Well then, my friend, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights may have a job with your name on it:

Here, read this and see if you fit the profile of the kind of candidate they're looking for (my bolds):
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is looking for talented people who share our passion and commitment to creating a world class museum that will enhance the public’s understanding of human rights, promote respect for others and encourage reflection and dialogue...
The CMHR is an Equal Opportunity Employer and endeavour to create a workplace that is representative of the community in which we live and serve. Qualified applicants will be considered for employment without regard to age, race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, religion, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, record of offenses, marital status, family status or disability.
Wow. That list seems to be fairly exhaustive. Covers all the bases, as they say. Oh, unless you happen to be straight, WASP and male, that is. If that's you and you want a job with this outfit, you might want to seriously consider becoming gay. Or transgendered. Or 2-spirited. Or losing an eye. Or two eyes. Or committing a crime.

Don't you just love how they blatantly lie?

They will hire "without regard to" blah blah blah but they want to have a "representative" staff which pretty much requires hiring based on all of the listed criteria.

Do you think they'll use a point system?

how totally stupid you and Michele are. The list says they will hire regardless of gender. Do you not have a gender? they will hire regardless of race or sexual orientation. You have at least one of each of those too.

so straight, white, WASP guy... YES, you too will have your rights protected. Which has, of course, always been the case.

let's see if you're open to free speech enough to let my comment stand on your blog....

Yeah! I've been lumped in with Scarmouche.

Now that's an honor.
