Mindless equality is the insistence that everybody be treated equally in disregard of valid reasons for different treatment. Examples include:
- Treating as equal old Caucasian ladies and young men of Islamic origin in screening at airports
- Treating as equal women and men in filling combat positions in the military
- Treating as equal all types of music, from Beethoven to vulgar rap performers
- Treating as equal literature and science from all cultures, no matter how primitive
