We are all cyclists. No one is *lesser* for what they wear.
p.s. when I was living in the UK, I was a member in multiple cycling organisations.
I disagree, when you are taking greater risks that harm yourselves and others more, both directly and indirectly then you are a lesser or 'worse' cyclist. Or would you say that a motorist that puts themselves at risk of harm and those around them through their actions sub conscious or not, more so than others that don't are equal?
Have you failed to recognise the change in behaviour of helmet wearing cyclists (the stats give us a bloody big clue for one thing even if you want to ignore the reality of their actions) and also how motorists behaviour changed when seatbelts, airbags, crash cells, bigger motors etc came about??
A cyclist whose actions cause more harm to themselves and to others and/or society as a whole is a lesser cyclist, stop sticking your head in the sand and pretending all people are equal, they simply aren't.
