When the feminists took this issue of gender difference of treatment to the federal courts, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it was OK to exempt women from the draft specifically because they are exempt from military combat. Now that the Defense Department has announced that women will be assigned to combat, that takes this argument away, and makes it clear that if ERA were ever ratified, 18-year-old girls would be subject to the draft just like men, and involuntarily assigned to any job the military wants. This offense to women, as well as to common sense, is only one of the bad effects of putting the word "sex" in the U.S. Constitution.
If ERA had been approved in the 1980s, we would have had same-sex marriages 30 years ago. Tell your state legislators to vote No on any reintroduction of the Equal Rights Amendment.
