What is an obtuse angle to do? He/she has driven to the arena for the first game of the hockey season (or figure skating competition) to see little “O” do his/her thing, only to be confronted by this sign in the parking lot!
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, prejudice is defined as:
- injury or damage resulting from some judgment or action of another in disregard of one’s rights…
- a(1) Preconceived judgment or opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge… c: an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race, or their supposed characteristics.
Surely right angles are not superior to its mathematically-related brothers and sisters? Just because an obtuse angle has a smaller angle is no reason to block it from using the parking lot. And what about reflex angles, acute angles, and straight angles? Do they not all have lines? Do they not all have a vertex and arms? Are they not also drawn and measured by the same tools?
I ask you – while we may measure angles by their degrees or radians, while their inclinations may vary, are they not all entitled to fair and equitable consideration? Shouldn’t all angles be permitted to intersect at some point, like the parking lot at the arena, and to do so without the fear of discrimination?
