Equal rights IS in the constitution. It's derived from the 14th amendment.

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.

@bb77077 So you think a woman is evil if she gets child support after being a stay at home mom with no skills then getting divorced by her husband? You seem to not want to hold men accountable for their actions and just be able to run from responsibility with no consequences!

AJ child of course the system of child support is inherently bad! A woman’s nature is to use and abuse a system for their own gains and comfort! If you want to have a baby, why should a company or the government pay for it?! It’s your choice and your consequences. Morons, all of you!

AJ of course it’s stressful! That’s why they shouldn’t be bitching when they do get paid leave or time off. I’m not saying that they must work during or immediately after pregnancy. Women just need to realize that, in general, biologically speaking men and women are different and should be treated differently.

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.

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.

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?
