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

Be honest, when John said that 37 states had voted for the ERA, you knew that Florida was going to be one of the states that hadn't.

I would argue that the ERA is redundant because the 14th does clearly say everyone has equal protection, however, it should still be ratified because there is no real reason not to, and it would show the country that the country is for everyone.

Mississippi may not have been the one to finalize the ratifiaction of the ERA - but at least they sorted out their State Flag in the 2020 election.

If you are interested in this there's a miniseries on the Era and Schlafley is played by Cate Blanchett, I recommend. It's called Mrs. America

Dr. Pat Spearman, we are not born with equality. equality is a right granted to us by being able to enforce the law. You have to be extremely stupid to think rights are somehiw magically created at birth. They are constructs we enforce.

Violence against women act is sexist and would not be allowed under this law. It treats one gender exclusively when both recieve the same amount of abuse according to pew research.

Do we really need a constitutional amendment if other laws already guarantee the same rights? Then again i suppose its easier to change other laws so that may be a good idea anyway.

Quick Google search: in February 2020 (before the Bitchslapping of the Year) the House reportedly voted to eliminate the deadline to ratify the ERA. So it's possible someone is just watching the amendment and going: Any day now, any day now. It shall pass _Any day now, any day now_ _I shall be released_

to be fair: if women and men were born equal... why do men lead in the statistics for cardiovascular impairment and women lead in the statistics of people giving birth?..... I like the english differentiation between equity and equality...people are not the same, and to ballance out the differences to give them equal chances is why we need rules to begin with.....

Hm... no, I'll be skipping this one... two many things will abhorrent, sexist and right down hypocritical and frankly, I don't want to get angry at anyone right now... I'll simply say this: If Feminism was about equality, it wouldn't be called Feminism, it would be called Egalitarianism, which is a far older concept that Feminism opposes with teeth and claws.
MCPunk55 Месяц назад
@SinisterPony "Step on him, he's a mere man." official Feminist slogan. The opposition they faced was Egalitarian, not mysoginy.
SinisterPony Месяц назад
they only had to resort to those tactics because of the large amount of opposition they face in achieving that equality. only idiots think that ratifying the ERA is somehow sexist and is agaisnt men. also way to represent a centuries old movement by a few bad apples (which every group has)... real fucking charitable of you.

It should be a basic quality of any society. It is shocking a nation priding itself on a constitution declaring the all men are born equal lacks such a fundamental distinction. But “should” is not the best reason to do this. Raising those not born to privilege to possess the same access, opportunity, freedom and protection under the law empowers them to participate as full citizens; with all the responsibility and benefits of ownership. It empowers societies to benefit from their brilliance and effort that would otherwise be denied by the enslavement of bias, violence, poverty and fear. It is the greatest tragedy of any society that any of their citizens are treated with inequity. We deny our own selves by denying others those privileges we inherit by chance of birth and force of arms. There is always a cost to oppression. But the cost extends beyond the need to press the boot upon the neck of the oppressed, it denies us their willing strength, and it denies their compassion when our turn comes. It is a self defeating maliciousness.

Whoa, whoa, wait a second...at the risk of sounding really dumb, John is saying June 4 2019 was the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, so why have people been talking so much about the 100th anniversary just this August?

Came back to watch this after watching Mrs. America. That show was a great in giving historical background to the pro and stop ERA movements of the 1970s, and really illustrates the imperfect arguments being made by either side. It's a really good show with fantastic acting. Highly recommend it to anyone reading this.
