Two of the most obvious ones were ;

Homosexuality, and Illegitimacy

Both based on nothing more than religious tradition of course.

What others can you name?

Tha latter is a perfect example of why political correctness is largely a good thing. The very term "illegitimate child" is appallingly negative and judgemental. Thankfully it is a term rarely heard now.

Sexism I guess, though it's not exactly of the past.

At least you have fewer people thinking today that 'women's fragile brains' just don't physically have the capacity to handle certain tasks or disciplines.

Or that their fragile bodies are incapable of running more than 800 metres.

I have been far more scathing about Cameron's intellect (or lack of it) than May's.

I'm an equal-opportunities critic so it "May" have been me in mind laugh.gif Happy to slag off anyone who deserves it, regardless of sex, sexual-orientation, race or religion. The Prime Minister could be a cross-dressing lesbian of Muslim background with mixed race heritage and I would still hold the same opinion of her (lack of) abilities teresa.gif

Another one just occurred to me :

Atheism - there was a tendency to regard people as 'sinful' or 'immoral' if they weren't religious.
