There’s still nothing in our constitution that explicitly prohibits sex discrimination. John Oliver talks about how to fix that.

The Framers left women out for good reason. Those men were intelligent where society today is STUPID. They were protecting America! The Bible also, does not give equal rights to women. They are not, never were nor ever will be men's equals.

@Cosmic K yes but having a constitutional amendment allows you to Sue and prevents backsliding in current legislation

@TheHoustonSkeptic History seems to suggest that there are loopholes everywhere and slimy bastards have the best teams money can buy to find them. I'm saying it wont change much.. they'll just hide it better. This is what they do. They make up other reasons to use to discriminate at their discretion and say its based on whatever they want yet still remain just as scummy.

It means you can sue people for violating it. So yeah it would make a huge difference

I'm actually surprised by the fact that it is not the exact same sentence in different languages. In my country the very first article of the constitution says: All those in the Netherlands are treated equally in the same cases. Discrimination on the grounds of religion, belief, political affiliation, race, gender or on whatever grounds is not permitted.

@Patrick Daniel That changes all the time. Give it a few years and it will swing again. That's what happens in politics. For example, usually the White House is controlled by the two parties and switches every one/two elections. Also take a look at California. For most of it's years it was a solidly Democratic state. Then in the 50s it switched red and voted for Every Republican presidential candidate until the 90s. And now it's back to being blue. These swings happen all of the time.

Then what is there to lose by passing the ERA? If you believe women are already totally equal, then it'll change nothing so there's no downside. It also costs nothing. Doesn't require any taxes, doesn't require any government spending. It's just paperwork making what you say is already the de facto reality, offical in the Constitution. So there's no reason to be against it!

I absolutely believe that all genders should be equal... BUT... Having an amendment to the constitution (or any law, for that matter) ensuring equality really makes me remember a magnificent comment in the phenomenal 'The West Wing' TV show. (This is also one of the very few times I've ever agreed with a Republican, on or off a fictional TV show...) Ainsley Hayes, a Republican lawyer working for the President, while in a meeting about an ERA says (after Sam Seborn asks her how she could possibly have an objection to an ERA): "Because it's humiliating. A new amendment we vote on declaring that I am equal under the law to a man, I am mortified to discover there's reason to believe I wasn't before. I am a citizen of this country, I am not a special subset in need of your protection. I do not have to have my rights handed down to me by a bunch of old, white, men. The same Article 14 that protects you, protects me, and I went to law school just to make sure." (S02E17 '17 people').

This is why you vote people. Virginia is going to be the 38th state to hopefully ratify it into the constitution. People if you are registered do it now and then come next year you fucking vote and if you can early vote then do it. You get your friends and family to vote.

I am sorry, but it was my people who are responsible for denying the Equal Rights Amendment. Female Zhor'i do not see themselves as equal to male Zhor'i and they believe it is cancerous to say otherwise. Why? Because in Zhor'i society, women believe in hardening themselves while giving me privileges/exemptions, because men are not as necessary for survival if they are just as capable as women. However, women being given the ability to live a nicer, safer and less burdensome life will end up being softer, weaker and less independent. That is unacceptable to any Zhor'i woman, which is why it is never accepted. What is given for granted must be earned no matter what it is.

Why do we even have to vote on something like this? This should not even be an issue. If the politicians in power don't understand AND embody the fact that everybody deserves equal rights, then they shouldn't have been voted into office in the first fucking place.

Men will sue for equal rights with respect to planned parenting. This amendment will cut both ways. Not an opponent of the amendment in theory, but the litany of frivolous lawsuits that will ultimately follow has the potential to alter the landscape in not so helpful ways. Clarity is key. The language it contains may need some revising.

You mean privileges. We don't have actual rights. We have privileges. Something that can be taken away due to the whim of some figurehead pretending to be a leader, usually a religious idiot, are privileges.

I live in Oklahoma we won't be passing any equal rights anything here ANYTIME soon unfortunately... alot of people who have the influence to do so, are all sexist or racist or both.. mostly both. God's sake we were the last state to legalize tattooing if we were the last to do something as trivial as tattooing do you really think that we'd step up to the plate for something as important as equal rights? They are roughly In the same category just not the same genre. Only reason medical marijuana was passed here was because of the people getting enough signatures to actually get it on a ballot. That and pretty much everyone who isnt a politician smokes cannabis is Oklahoma lol
