If you think this is unfair, would you feel morally obligated to cheat on all academic tests?
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection,
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

this is a variation of, "If you think life is unfair, are you morally obligated to be a criminal?" No, of course not. "Unfairness" is minor, cheating is serious.

The idea that discrimination based upon intelligence is unfair is a pathetic notion. "Fair" means getting what is due. Intelligence is due preference on things which depend upon intelligence.

Yeah, given what RoyLatham said, I think "Intelligence Discrimination" should be defined. I mean, how is intelligence measured? Testing in general, I don't think, could possibly be considered intelligence discrimination. Academic testing in particular measures aptitude, not intelligence.
