What is rankism

Before you conclude that rankism is human nature-that we’re like the apes, and they do it, so we have no choice-and dismiss the possibility of overcoming it, consider this list of specific kinds of “put downs” that, not long ago, were deemed cool, but have become a sure way to embarrass yourself:

  1. Racism-whites putting and keeping non-whites down
  2. Sexism-males limiting and disadvantaging females
  3. Ageism-patronizing the young, condescending to the elderly
  4. Anti-Semitism-discriminating against Jews
  5. Classism-putting down people on the basis of differences in class (more prevalent in former aristocracies like Britain than in America, but also known here)
  6. Homophobia-heterosexuals demeaning gays and lesbians
  7. Ableism-humiliating people with disabilities
  8. Colonialism-subordinating and exploiting another society or nation
  9. Workplace and schoolyard bullying; sexual harassment, child abuse, and domestic violence; corporate, bureaucratic, and political corruption
