I don't understand it really, whenever something is unfair and you know damn well it's unfair why is the reply to unfairness "Life is unfair" well if life is unfair why don't we change it, no one likes too feel injustice with the excuse "Life is unfair" people don't like it so how comes when people try to change that to insure that what is fair happens they get punished for it, isn't that kind of oppression?!? I hate being patronised and I hate having my views belittled because of my freaking status," people are allowed to do thing just because" what the hell kind of reason is that?! It's absurd and I believe if we see something we don't like we should at least have the opportunity to change it!
SHOULDN'T WE?!?!

You know what's unfair?
When people complain about unfairness, inequality, and oppression in the same breath, and want to be taken as seriously as those that understand the difference.

In other words, I have no idea what you are complaining about - it is unclear.
My work here is, finally, done.

Then what does his status have to do with anything?
Who is oppressing him? God?

It sounds like he is complaining about discrimination in some form, but what that form is, I don't know.

To me it seems like other people.

It sounds like he is complaining about discrimination in some form, but what that form is, I don't know.

Probably people making fun of him because of his inability to effectively write a coherent post.

It's not really fair that people expect you to just roll over and accept the unfairness just because "life is unfair," but you know what? Life is unfair.

Is it really unfair, or is how we have made life unfair.?

If we made life unfair, then life would be unfair, wouldn't it? So I don't understand the dichotomy you're making between life being unfair and us making life unfair.
