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

As a kid I never knew the Grand Canyon was in Arizona, and sometimes I still forget that it is. So now I'm just picturing a giant crack that disappears and reappears randomly across the US like some sort of sentient cryptid.

I know Mississippi got a lot of shit here, but Georgia’s flag is literally the actual official flag of the Confederacy (1861-63) but with their State emblem in the middle of the stars.

You might think it's noble and all that. But in fact the host is pushing for this 'cause they'll immediately declare that some weirdo identifying as attack helicopter has equal rights since the amendment doesn't specify how many genders there are. And back in the days only 2 were acknowledged. So what I'm saying is that amendment is outdated and they should've stopped at 10 anyway.

I'm surprised he didn't mention it, but if the ERA was passed, it seems like it could be very much interpreted as promoting marriage equality. (Hopefully no one brings that up to homophobes if this is otherwise a bipartisan measure...)

John Oliver conveniently forgets to mention that a *lot* of feminists also campaigned against the ERA, because it would also make any privileges women enjoy illegal. And he also conveniently forgets that the ERA has a *section* *2* See: https://humanevents.com/2019/06/13/the-equal-rights-amendment-and-feminist-empowerment/

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!

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.

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.
