UAE Government Awards Itself with "Gender Equality" Awards. Winners Are All Men

Click to see the full-size image

On January 27th, the UAE gave away gender equality awards. The authorities in the country were strongly ridiculed on social media after it turned out that all of the awarded individuals are men.

Certificates and medals were awarded by Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the vice-president of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Dubai, in the categories of “best government entity supporting gender balance”, “best federal authority supporting gender balance” and “best gender balance initiative” at a ceremony.

The awards went to the finance ministry, the federal competitiveness and statistics authority and ministry of human resources respectively. All awarded departments were represented by male awardees.

Another absurdity is that essentially the UAE government was giving “gender equality” awards to its own departments, to itself in short.

This included top ranking generals given that the deputy prime minister and minister of the interior, Lt Gen Sheikh Saif bin Zayed al-Nahyan, received the “best personality supporting gender balance” — supposedly for his tireless efforts implementing maternity leave in the UAE’s military.

Expectedly, the Twitter post and the Award initiative were both ridiculed widely on social media.

The Dubai Media Office tried to salvage the situation with a follow-up tweet, which dug an even deeper hole.

After all, the post did add a few women in the group photograph.

Following are some of the more interesting responses.

And finally, in the spirit of gender equality and LGBTQ justice.

I reckon in the Emirates by their standards a woman being allowed to work to clean toilets and deliver coffee to men IS a step forwards in equality. I refuse to use the G-word though as that has been contaminated by the SJW crowd.

I guess “gender equality” (whatever the fuck that means), means your country has to be flushed into the female and faggot sewer.

jako

That means that “yours is bigger than hers” butt not for long time if she only gets chance to correct that.

northerntruthseeker .

Bingo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gender equality and Islam are antipodes (Christianity as well).
And this travesty of event shows even very conservative Islamic countries are under pressure.
Shows us how global feminist hysteria driven from the West is about to start to act globally on every corner of this planet UNFORTUNATELY !

There is only ONE universal existing equality and that is equality of human beings all others are artificially created for the purpose of destruction of family and atomisnig whole society in process to take total control over it.
The only objective of Super Rich and their social engineering project of feminist and LGBTQ organisations is battering ram in destruction of very essence of the society and NATION which they want DESTROYED !

IMHO

Gender equality and REALITY are antipodes.

jako

You as usual don’t have clue what are you talking about
and saying that only because it rimes
So in some way that rime resonates
in your dead brain as an argument

All human beings are equal.
Gender equality is artificially created category.
Nobody can make equal something that is DIFFERENT
it is impossible, insane and against the nature

IMHO

“rimes” Do you mean rhymes? What rhymes?
I’m not surprised by your emotional response since you have not truth to back up your ridiculous claim.
Women are NOT equal to men. PERIOD. And none of your tantrums will change that.

jako

yes rhymes my bad typo
“equality and REALITY” are rhyming words
As for my “response”
it is there for everybody to judge

IMHO

Equality and Reality are not rhyming words. The “A” makes different sounds in the two words. Rhymes sound the SAME.
Anyway, all human beings are not equal. Just because the Declaration of Independence erroneously says so doesn’t make it true. People are not born equal and they do not live equal.
You need to understand that having equal rights does not mean that people are physically or mentally equal. And the artificial attempt to make people equal is one reason for the degeneration of our society.

jako

I was not talking about EFFING “Declaration of Independence”!!!

Majority of people are not from US so majority doesn’t give f***k about U.S. “Declaration of Independence” me included !.
Even thinking that US takes themselves as absolute measure of “freedom and democracy” in the world makes me literally PUKE !
I never talk about US when talking about basic “Human Rights”.

I was talking about “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” written in the official UN Declaration of Human Rights accepted around the world!
All rights proscribed in that declaration are basic human rights that equaly belong to every human being
Yes all human beings are BORN with TOTALLY EQUAL INHERITED BASIC RIGHTS AS HUMAN BEINGS !

This has nothing to do with banality of “physical or mental equality” color of skin, sex etc.. or any other aspect that can cross the mind.

IMHO

Equal rights and gender equality are two different things. Genders are not equal. PERIOD! Stay on subject please.
As far as the rest of your tirade, I don’t know if you are intentionally being obtuse about my argument or if you just like to argue but thanks for agreeing with me.

jako

“Genders are not equal”
So you are trying to convince me in MY OWN ARGUMENT ?!??
YES EINSTEIN you got it finally what I am claiming all the time!
That’s exactly the REASON why is ABSURD TO EVEN TALK ABOUT GENDER EQUALITY !
Human beings are ALL EQUAL as human beings because every bodies life has the SAME value in front of the LAW doesn’t matter sex, color, age, nationality or anything else !

Effing pear can’t be ever “equal” to effing apple !
Whit man can NOT be equal to black man because of the COLOR of skin but because they are both HUMAN BEINGS !
Man and Woman should not be equaled as sexes but as HUMAN BEINGS!

IMHO

No, people are not born equal either. Color, sex, mental capacity, etcetera all play in that inequality.
Equal rights and Equality are not the same.

jako

You are playing with the words.

NO SUCH THING as absolute “Equality”(including gender bullshit “equality”) except equality in EQUAL BASIC RIGHTS as human beings.
Life of every person has equal value and deserves equal respect.
I am talking about INNER equality not outside equality which is not achievable
life of one = life of other

IMHO

No, everyone’s life is not of equal value and definitely everyone does not deserve equal respect.
That has nothing to do with equal rights.

jako

Again you are talking on HIGHER level of particular cases and merits and who knows what!

I am talking of BASIC PRINCIPAL that is inherited by birth
one human being = other human being
one baby = another baby
that is starting universal point

IMHO

As far as rights yes but not equality. People are not born equal and that is what I have said all along.
Are you sure you are not an American liberal?

jako

There is communication problem, a gap here…
No I am Orthodox Christian a deeply incompatible with American liberal (whom I hate with all my heart on top of everything)

IMHO

The funny thing is that there is no gender equality. That is a politically correct construct that is not based on reality. Women are not equal to men. PERIOD.

Oh come on, the Emirates get that crap pushed onto them so they respond with a world-class troll. Congratulations! Who said there’s no sense of humor in the Gulf.
