9:35 : "Congress recently let the Violence Against Women Act expire." If the ERA is passed, the Violence Against Women Act could be challenged as not treating men and women equally, since it only addresses violence against women and not violence against men.

The American electorate voted for the first deceitful actor-playing-politician, Ronald Reagan, instead of Jimmy Carter in 1980 and then Mondale in 1984 who criticized Reagan's supply-side economic policies and budget deficits and who called for a nuclear freeze and **ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment**. Electing Trump was par for the course. Americans are too stupid to have a democracy. They fucking elected George W. Bush rather than a candidate who would've started tackling climate change 20 years ago. Inexcusable. There's no coming back from that and the rest of the world should never forgive the way America has embraced anti-education, anti-science willful ignorance, backwards mindedness, xenophobia and inequality. It's getting even worse than most third world countries like Russia.

The problem is that the arguement and stance of a loud minority posses (far left feminist) a view that equal outcome is what is needed. Equal outcome is a terrible idea and just like the "homo" comment they are trying to argue a stance that is of their beliefs and empathy yet they can't see the hippocritical nature of other aspects of their arguement. Such as if equality is important why would you disparage a homosexual in a derogatory manner?! Some fucked up thinking all around if you ask me. Any critical thinking will tear apart their position and it's not because we or I are bigots or not empathetical it's just that their position is just factually wrong and if you can't agree on scientific facts then it's hard to make progress. what is being argued is not what is being argued out on the field and unfortunately just like the scolia clip they are arguing from a bigger picture of what that would lead to if these new viewpoints are placed into law. We are starting to see the most inclusive and socialistic democracies leading the charge but they are facing some huge problems.

7:21 You're wrong. Wives are the property of their husbands, especially more so back then than now. Y do you thing women are given away by their fathers. Women go from being their fathers property to being their husbands. Do a Wikipedia search or ask google or simply look at history. Their are laws in some states that tells you how often you can beat your wife and with what. Maybe it's time we do away with the whole marriage bullshit.
rogermwilcox Prije 5 sati
There are no laws permitting a husband to beat his wife under some circumstances, in any state. There never have been. Such "laws" are a pernicious myth. If you can point to an actual law on any state's books that does permit a husband to beat his wife, I'd like to see it.

You want MO to ratify the era? Simple, just qualify, specifically, that it refers basely to gender, not statuses baised on gender, like pregnancy, so, that maternity leave can still be implemented. We're already a state that has thought of muslims as conservative religious leaders that held balls for great achievements in education by women & used to dress like the kkk. At least, that's what they've been since the VP fair started in the state. Just ensure that pregnancy ISNT specified as a status for absolutely equal treatment, this, ensuring maternity leave, &, binge. Missouri will ratify.

Still trying to figure out what rights women don't have that men do?

This doesnt really mean that women don't have the same rights as men that basically means that noone has the same rights as anyone else which makes no sence and probably isn't the case as the same laws apply to everyone
Captain Doomsday
Oh, god, call me Nostradamus, because I'm going to predict the future. We're going to have real, unironic pushback against WOMEN HAVING RIGHTS in significant enough quantities that fixing the issue becomes legitimately difficult. Somewhere in the middle of the season, when rational people are getting fatigued and distracted, those people who claim rape should be legal (and I stress these are real) are going to slither out from some gutters and start screeching something about religion mandating the oppression of women and scaring a bunch of incels into believing they'll never have sex if women have rights. Successfully.

Such ignorance. The ERA does NOT provide gender protection, it specifically says SEX, not gender. Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article. Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification. Since modern gender theory claims that women can be male or female in their sex, it does not provide a protection for gender identity.

I think that the ERA should be passed 100%. It's important to say that because I'm about to point out what might be a flaw: 11:29 Because the modern concept of gender includes transgender and gender non-conforming individuals there are interpretations of law that distinguish between "gender" and "sex". People like Joanna Cherry in the UK are trying to reference laws that use the word "sex" and use them as weapons against transgender people. This means that protecting based on sex, may not in all cases protect based on gender.

The 19th Amendment proved that the 14th Amendment does not guarantee equal rights by gender. Furthermore, the word "male" appears in the 14th Amendment 3 times. The word "female" or the word "gender" 0 times. Point to Justice Scalia. Vote ERA.
rogermwilcox Prije 5 sati
All 3 places that the 14th Amendment mentions "male" have to do with voting rights. All of them were overturned by the 19th Amendment. The ERA would do nothing to change this part of the 14th Amendment, because the 19th Amendment already did.

We need this I was arrested for being raped because my female rapist turned out to be underage, anytime a underage males raped a female, the male went to jail, but it's the opposite when men are the victim. for males my rapist testifies against me, luckily she told the truth mostly, said she wanted to be with an adult. my rapist could have made anything up, she had complete control over what happened to me, yet the state still is trying to indict me for over a year. I just want equal protection, the police knew what she was planning. she gained unauthorized access to an interstate computer to lure an adult to rape, the police were informed and decided not to warn me because I am strictly liable if my rapist turned out to be underage. I want to start a gofundme, but I don't want everyone to know.

Western women have _more_ rights and privileges than men. They're the most privileged people on the planet of all time. No one has ever had it easier. Whether it's affirmative action, diversity hiring/promotions, special programs or grants, the only form of gendered discrimination currently happening is _against_ men and _benefit_ women. Yet feminists are still whining and playing victims and everyone's buying it. We truly do live in a clown world.

The US has always been against womens rights. Women were included in the voting rights act in the 60s because an antiwoman senator thought including women would kill the bill. He sincerely believed that congress would support voting rights for people of color but would refuse if women were protected too. Thankfully he was wrong, but historical anecdotes like this show how much this country hates women.

How do idiots like you get jobs, you completely dismissed the other side of the argument, didn't even mention there is another side. First of all the ERA would demolish all gender distinctions, for example men would no longer be required to pay alimony, women would be enlisted in the draft, unisex bathrooms would become law, schools would no longer be allowed to have boys team and girls teams, which would greatly disadvantage women since men are (usually,) physically stronger. Imagine the national team made of boys and girls, imagine a man being able to leave a family with no consequences whatsoever, imagine women are treated the same in the workforce, no maternity leave, no nothing. In today's world women are a lot more privileged than men. Right now if a man and a women with equal qualities ran for president, most people would support the woman all in the name of feminism. You can only bring up the gender gap which is not due to male supremacy but women simply choosing jobs which tend to make less money. Like the fact a huge of teachers are women. There are intrinsic values for being a man and there intrinsic values for being a women but men and women are the NOT the same, equal opportunity is always desired but equal outcome is should never be forced, both women and men have different important things that they offer to society, for example women teach kids because they are more patient and have more self control than men, and men do construction work because they are stronger. Now if a man wanted to become a teacher, he can but on average he won't be as good as a women and similarly if a women wanted to become a construction worker, she can but on average she won't be as good aa a man.
