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

  • in the netherlands literally the first law in the book says "Allen die zich in Nederland bevinden, worden in gelijke gevallen gelijk behandeld. Discriminatie wegens godsdienst, levensovertuiging, politieke gezindheid, ras, geslacht of op welke grond dan ook, is niet toegestaan." wich roughly translates " everyone in the netherlands shall be equally treated. discrimination due to religion, ideology, political idea's, race, gender or any other means shall not be accepted"

  • Just dropped into a John Oliver wormhole and come to this. I find it interesting that whenever equal rights, be it the ERA, Civil Rights, women's rights to their own bodies, religious freedom (i.e. freedom to worship someone or something other than Jesus) or white supremacists and neo-Nazis, it's ALWAYS the same southern corner of the country. Every freaking time. (And recall it was Arizona that took so long before declaring MLK Day as a holiday.) And these states are also pro-Trump. Maybe the wrong side won the Civil War after all, since the "people" in these states are living on some other planet all together. (Note on Civil War, the right side won, obviously, but the losers simply can't get it through their f****** heads they lost.) Hmm... it's now December 2020... I see a trend here...

  • I would argue that the ERA is redundant because the 14th does clearly say everyone has equal protection, however, it should still be ratified because there is no real reason not to, and it would show the country that the country is for everyone.

  • It should be a basic quality of any society. It is shocking a nation priding itself on a constitution declaring the all men are born equal lacks such a fundamental distinction. But “should” is not the best reason to do this. Raising those not born to privilege to possess the same access, opportunity, freedom and protection under the law empowers them to participate as full citizens; with all the responsibility and benefits of ownership. It empowers societies to benefit from their brilliance and effort that would otherwise be denied by the enslavement of bias, violence, poverty and fear. It is the greatest tragedy of any society that any of their citizens are treated with inequity. We deny our own selves by denying others those privileges we inherit by chance of birth and force of arms. There is always a cost to oppression. But the cost extends beyond the need to press the boot upon the neck of the oppressed, it denies us their willing strength, and it denies their compassion when our turn comes. It is a self defeating maliciousness.

It's a really good show with fantastic acting. Highly recommend it to anyone reading this.
