Probably it would have helped our cause a lot. That's why so many people were crapping their pants over it in the '70s. Remember all the screaming and panicking and fear-mongering over it??In the 1970's there was a big, but ultimately unsuccessful effort, to pass the "Equal Rights Amendment".... I wonder if our cause for equal rights for LGBT Americans would have been speeded up if the Equal Rights Amendment had been ratified.
"Men with have the right to watch women use public bathrooms!!!"
"Gynecologist will be thrown in prison if they don't treat men, too!!!"
"Enforced coed locker rooms in elementary schools!!! Boys and girls naked together!!!!"
"No more men-only social clubs!!! Nooooo!!!!!"
"Your daughter will be assigned a MALE roommate in the college dorm!!!"
"The Junior League will be forced to let GAY guys in!! The horror!!!!"
"No more laws against sexual predators!!! Perverts will be running around everywhere!!!"
It was so ridiculous. I was a teenager during that time. It was one of my first real realizations the a-holes will resort to panicking stupid people when they can't get their way through the truth.
