Lingayat religion do not accepts varnashrama, Because all humnas are born as same. no one born in the ear! or from somewhere else.

Unless a woman enters her courses the embryo has no shelter. Functions of semen and egg are the same.
Desire, greed, anger, pleasures are all same.
Whatever you read or listen what is the fruit?
What is the proof of a highborn?
saptadhaatusamain pindam sanayoni samudhbhavam atma jeevasamaayuktam varnaanam kim prayojanam
Hence-
Heating the metal one became a blacksmith.
Washing the clothes one became a washerman.
Weaving a cloth one became a weaver.
Reading the Vedas one became a Brahmin.
Is there any one in this world who is born through the ears?
That’s why Koodalasangamadeva
One who knows lingasthala is the highborn. -Guru Basava/428
