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

Unfortunately, states can also vote to rescind their approval. I see my home state of Tennessee doing that. Hell, our governor today signed a bill making July 13th "Nathan Bedford Forrest Day". Christ I really need to get out of the south. So hurry up before this happens, other states. After number 38 ratifies, there are no take-backs!

Beautifully said John! Men and women are equal in the issue of abortion. Hopefully more people will see the father is a victim too when mothers try to say “my body my choice” ignoring her kid and it’s father

But seriously, wouldn’t the ERA make a male only military draft unconstitutional? John Oliver kinda just shrugged that off. Pretty sure men could argue being sent to die doesn’t make them equally protected under the law.

Kirk Douglas was born; "Issur Danielovitch," lol and having been born on December 9, 1916, is almost 103 years old! He was actually born at the end of WWI, Served in the United States Military during WWII, from 1941 to 1945, and has actually lived long enough to witness virtually every significant event in World history since two years after the sinking of the Titanic! He has GOT to have some awesome stories lol if I ever met him for some reason, I would probably have alot of trouble leaving him alone, I'd be asking him about EVERYTHING.

I live in the armpit of a state AZ. There are no open minds here. We definitely will NEVER do anything to lift women up. People here don't say excuse me when they run over your foot with their cart at Fry's. They don't say anything, they just glare at you like it's your fault for being in their path. Summer makes everything much worse!

Calling originalists insane is bizarre itself, originalism is just a safety measure to avoid the abuse of the vagueness of the English language. Many people who advocate for the ERA are originalists, so assuming it is based on political partisanship rather than the philosophy of law a dangerous precedent to take.

"While claiming to benefit women, the ERA would actually have taken away some of women's rights. We based our arguments on the writings of pro-ERA law professors, among them current Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The amendment would require women to be drafted into military combat any time men were conscripted, abolish the presumption that the husband should support his wife and take away Social Security benefits for wives and widows. It would also give federal courts and the federal government enormous new powers to reinterpret every law that makes a distinction based on gender, such as those related to marriage, divorce and alimony.

He kinda glossed over the fact that this would require women to be included in the draft, of which would include combat roles. Not something I’m against but a fact that should be considered Equality means equal responsibility. Paraphrased from Service Women’s Active Network or SWAN

You know, not for nothing, but I am actually curious what this would mean for the Draft, Divorce, Abortion, and Sentencing in the US. The first should just be eliminated at this point, probably. The second and third are...complicated issues, that require a lot more work than I would put into talking about them, and the fourth...well, I just saw a case in my home town where a couple, about two years ago attempted to rob a convenience store. Both held weapons, both were equally guilty. The woman got 2 years, plus a six month parole, and the guy got 22 years. This is due to them having children, BTW. If this passes, would the guy be able to object? If so, which sentence to they change? Not saying I'm against this, with toupee in the white house, we should do our best to enshrine good things, and heck, whichever way that goes, I think it would be a good thing, but it is a thought.

SageofStars i would imagine that if era existed the man and the woman would get an equally long and harsh sentence. Unless the judge finds some other excuse to make it worse for the man, like people often do with people of colour.

Love the line that everyone from the past was a racist and misogynist. Ya know, except all the people who weren't. Like the ppl who fought & died to end slavery. Guess those white ppl don't count. Good old John Oliver. If you dislike the U.S. so much, you can always pack your bags. A gender pay gap is an opioid for the stupid. A debunked myth.

I was waiting for them to play the clip of Hillary Clinton saying she was against gay marriage, to show that "equal rights" are defined in the context of modern day society.

It’s more complicated than this. Under the ERA you can’t tell a man he’s out of the Army because he can’t do 40 push-ups but a woman can stay in because she can do 17. I’m all for the ERA, but we need to update the requirements to quite a few critical jobs, like military, firefighter, police, etc and stop DQing otherwise qualified men.

Women already have more rights than men The ERA would actually be a protector of men's rights Not women's. The "men's rights" organizations are actually PRO- ERA. Schlafly knew this and spread that knowledge. WOMEN are the ones who fought the ERA not men. Show less

Does it mean that the kunts will get to be killed in combat roles, or work in the mines, finally get to have same life expectancy, or not be given more rights in front of marital courts? Or no?... Perhaps just be paid the same as engineers while working as hairdressers?

If it includes the private sector as well I'd support it. Sorry, the wage gap is an actual myth as literally any economics professor will tell you. What actually typically goes on is companies hire people at X wage and then pay certain people more and freeze the wages of others. Also, company diversity quotas have hindered me, a man, find work. I go to businesses all over my area in California (figures right?) Not a single Caucasian male. Which you know, who cares....Save you sure feel at a disadvantage.

@topherh33 But you've provided no evidence, so how can I judge no evidence as anything other than baseless? For the last time, claiming something is a fact and then not providing proof of said fact isn't the same as something being a legitimate, true fact. Not sure how asking for evidence of a claim YOU pulled out of YOUR ass has anything to do with my "victim status"; and that's an ad hominem. Your logical fallacies are racking up.

@topherh33 You're shifting the burden of proof onto me, which is a logical fallacy and proof that your claim is baseless. Thanks for playing.
