There's no such thing as a wage gap. Women aren't asking for equality of opportunity, they're asking for equality of outcome.
That's why men will always be paid more in specialized fields.

Speaking from a constitutional law perspective, the ERA could, not will, but could have negative unintended consequences. When interpreting laws and their constitutionality, courts use various types of "scrutiny." These three are, rational basis, intermediate, and strict scrutiny. As of right now, all gender legal issues are analyzed under intermediate scrutiny which means the law must "Serve an important government objective, and
Be substantially related to achieving the objective." If the ERA is passed the laws would be analyzed under strict scrutiny which means the law must
"There is a compelling state interest behind the challenged policy, and
The law or regulation is narrowly tailored to achieve its result." While the difference between these looks minuscule, legally it could create some problems. For example: The Supreme Court may be able to remove parental rights from the father of an unborn child (for abortion purposes) under intermediate scrutiny but would not be able to remove those rights under strict scrutiny, allowing fathers to prevent abortions. Just wanted to shed a little light on the POSSIBLE legal ramifications.

How about women stop leeching of of men through the courts and just continue to work during and after pregnancy. Oh, wait, women can’t do that? Surprising.
bb77077 - Před dnem
A. Vulcan I have many, live, scenarios. Many of the men who are in these situations are broke and do not see their children, even working 50 hour weeks.
AJ - Před dnem
@bb77077 Child support laws are gender neutral, it's just that women get custody more often. Do the child support laws have issues, yeah absolutely, but don't make it seem like it's about women leeching off of men.
A. Vulcan
A. Vulcan - Před dnem
bb77077 Do you have a specific example in mind? You're being _very_ vague. Maybe you're thinking of divorce that includes alimony for the mother??
bb77077 - Před dnem
AJ so how about we also make mothers work and pay child support in equal amount to the man’s?
bb77077 - Před dnem
A. Vulcan sigh, that’s exactly what I’m saying.

In order to be privileged, others have to be underprivileged. Like good & evil, light & dark; one cannot exist without the other but that doesn't mean that the underprivileged should not have equal rights. To deny that would ensure that there would be far fewer privileged people in the world voting against the same rights that allowed them to attain their position of privilege in the first place.
Esmay - Před 28 dny
I live in the Netherlands and I really thougth that America would have this law, and I was shocked to learn that they didn't have a law like this that protects people against discrimination. And I am especially suprised because in the Netherlands it is coverd in the first article of constitution that states that the everyone in the Netherlands should be treated equally. Discrimination because of religion, philosophy of life, political conviction, race, gender or any other reason is not permitted. (Not an exect translation, also not perfect because my english isn't perfect but i hope you get the meaning) And I really thought that America or at least almost al of it's states would have a similar law against discrimination.

The ERA seemed destined for ratification until Phyllis Schlafly mobilized women in opposition. These women argued that the ERA would disadvantage housewives, cause women to be drafted into the military and to lose protections such as alimony, and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Many labor feminists also opposed the ERA on the basis that it would eliminate protections for women in labor law.

Okay.. I'm completely willing to be corrected here, but I thought the civil rights act of 1964 covers discrimination against women for all types of things, doesn't that accomplish what you're talking about? Again, I might be wrong, please correct me if I am

And Johnny, you forgot to include the fact that there are states that have rescinded their support for the ERA. So we are actually five states away from passing. Oh yeah, but you don't want to speak the truth, do you?
Marcie Murphy
Marcie Murphy - Před měsícem
If a state can vote for the ERA after the deadline expired, then for the sake of equality state's can also rescind their vote to for support, as four states have done. This shit about the ERA vote going on forever until it finally passes is just that, shit. So let's just keep every bill that comes up for a vote going forever until it eventually passes. How does that sound to you idiots that are continuing to push this load of manure?

@StormCrown that's... That's what they said. Once politics get involved, they blindly follow people who have the same party alignment. That's why so many Republicans either don't think climate change is even real, or isn't a problem.

when he showed the states that haven't ratified it, I was like "Of course Alabama hasn't ratified it" Alabama can you be on the right side of history for once, I live here, but the more I find out about my state, the more it feels like Alabama deserves every bit of its backwards stereotype. F*** Me. welp I can bet you ALABAMA isn't gonna ratify it.
