Depends on the definition of discrimination, I guess. Today, it's atypical to yell "discrimination" if only people of a select gender are allowed to become pregnant or only those with a certain nationality are allowed to vote in certain elections. The "lot in life" inherent in being born to a caste might not warrant moral outrage amounting to discrimination charges, not in all cases.
Um, what? Are there massive amounts of people complaining that only women can become pregnant? Is there some vast conspiracy that is preventing men from becoming pregnant?

You got me lost here...

I'm sticking with my assumption that there can't be a caste system without discrimination. It seems inherent in the very concept of it.
Yes, I, too, would like to understand how a caste system can work without any form of discrimination.
