Hey guys, just thought I'd share my mock essay exam answers. Some of the topics are interesting and I figured maybe some of you may add some insight. Feel free to discuss any of the questions I've answered. I'll update this post once I finish the last two questions. These are just drafts so far. I can't bring in any notes, need to memorise them 8D

Remember, these are only notes.

Oh wow, the topic focuses are slightly different from what we get in the UK. I don't think I can lend any help for fear of digression.

Dill: Sexism isn't really a problem in Australian schools. Our schools have bigger problems with racism and class divisions. I originally was going to cover a broad variety of discrimination, but the lecturer recommended that I should focus on one specific branch.

Sirell: :3 I'm open to discussion on any of the questions. I'm only seeking to broaden my own learning.

Dill: I have 2 hours to hand-write 3 essays in exam conditions with no notes. It's not possible to go broad in this case.

Raine: Thanks!

Pheyniex: Discrimination is discrimination based on difference. If you're ignorant to difference, how can it be discrimination? You can't be ignorant of aspects of life, there is always a positive or negative factor. To have rich people, you need poor. To have healthy people, there needs to be unhealthy people. If you are knowledgeable about who you are and what you *aren't*, you can't be ignorant.
