A remarkably good question

Just a small coda to the previous post, as we continue to be astounded by the interest taken by self-identified “Christian” activists in what other people’s genitals look like. From Claire Guthrie Gastañaga, discussing the California version of Maryland’s shower-nuts back in December:

When I was in law school working to get the Equal Rights Amendment ratified in Virginia, the two principle arguments made against the amendment by Phyllis Schlafly and her supporters were that the Amendment would make women and men have to go to the bathroom together and it would force women into combat.

As one of my friends pointed out the other day, there are more and more unisex bathrooms around these days, and women are dying in combat.

So, she asked, “where’s my Equal Rights Amendment?”

    If the S.C. had the balls to rule that, since the E.R.A. did not pass, women did NOT have equal rights, then the E.R.A would be reintroduced and ratified in a few months. However, the S.C. just presumes it, so there is no need.

    I’m surprised that you don’t object to women dying in combat. I would have pegged you for one who thinks that men and women are not designed to perform the same functions in society – hence the very concept of equality would be meaningless. I apologize in advance if I have wrongly put words in your mouth.

    You have not, but that is not germaine to my comment, either.
