Well, since we're being picky... :D

race: last time I checked, we're all members of the same race, homo
sapiens sapiens.
national origin vs. immigration status: the former is already covered
by "culture" for everything that matters, the latter is very specific
to one culture.
social "class": this is too Marxist*, we should use "social status",
since everything is blurred nowadays.
family status: really?!
sexual orientation vs. sex vs gender identity and expression: what?!
size: really? is this the PC version of "weight"?

* I don't mean "socialist", nor "communist", but I mean the strict
division of classes.


PS: I hope you all understand that I mean no offence. I may have to
put that as my signature from now on, though, or risk being kicked out
without notice... :)
