    Phyliss Schlafley argued that the ERA would hurt women because they would lose privileges like SS dependent benefits, forced to single sex public bathrooms and exemption from the draft.  Why worry equal pay when you'd have to go through all that?

    I can kind of see the public bathroom argument.  I have, on occassion, sneaked into the ladies' room because of some bio-disaster in the mens' bathroom.  ;7)

    I'll need some room for this...

    •  Schlafly never attended a figure skating event in (5+ / 0-)

      a hockey venue. Sneaking into the men's bathroom is often the ONLY practical answer to the insanely long lines that form outside the women's bathrooms. "Unisexing" all of them for the duration of the event would be a saner policy, but I haven't ever seen that done.

      You can't scare me with "unisex" bathrooms. :-P'''

      If it's
      Not your body
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      AND it's
      None of your damn business!

      starting back in the early 1980's; guess what?

      Single washroom.  Not unisex.  A guy's washroom.

      Didn't bother me.

      (* man's job = job anybody could do but only men were traditionally hired to do it; now considered a "job" and both men and women are hired to do it).

      Bothered the managers at the phone company at the time, though.
