So if passed and the ERA is added to the Constitution would people use this to equally apply the law regarding both genders or are they going to use this to skew the law in feminist favor? For example if you look at divorce and custody battles they often favor the women or how in cases of domestic abuse even if the man has done nothing wrong they are usually the ones carted off to jail. Would Men also be able to use the ERA in circumstances where men are usually given the short end of the stick?

It's too late, according to the DOJ. But if it WERE passed the Left would be forced to access two genders, wouldn't they? Who am I kidding? They would bitch and moan about it.

It would be a symbolic gesture at this point and good thing too. The Equal Rights Amendment sounds like a good idea until you start to think about what it would mean.

I don't mind it. Sounds harmless.
