DOJ says deadline to revive Equal Rights Amendment has expired

The DOJ has argued that the deadline to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment has expired. ’We conclude that Congress had the constitutional authority to impose a deadline on the ratification of the ERA and, because that deadline has expired, the ERA Resolution is no longer pending before the States’, the Office of Legal Counsel said. Opponents argue that the ERA would allow more access to abortion.

"Women's rights." Name one right which a man has and a woman does not. When the government divides rights based on race, sex, or orientation, then the goal is not equality, but government-sanctioned systemic discrimination.

Good. The ERA was a good idea if you didn't think about it's effects. Men and women should (and, at least in the USA, do) have equal rights but they are different and sometimes there needs to be laws that handle men and women differently. The ERA would make that unconstitutional.

Most people are unaware that the 19th amendment only gives women the right to vote. Technically, they can't hold the office of President because all references in the constitution to that job are using male pronouns. Of course, SCOTUS would ignore or rewrite the constitution if the matter ever hit their desks.

Aren't women supposed to have equal rights already? I mean like something more permanent than a fucking library card.
