      That was then:

      Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
      Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

      Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.[

      This is now:

      Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex or SEXUAL PREFERENCE
      Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

      Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.[

        there are now laws on the books that prevent discrimination against women.  There are laws that legalize discrimination against GLBT.

        We work to repeal the existing laws and then work on big picture Amendment. But I guess fixing things along the way isn't part of your agenda.

        All or nothing is your game and you'd rather lose it all than take these changes now. Try joining us in the 21st century.
