And he continues to ignore the 19th changed the distinction recognized in the 14tht:<quoted text>
Why do you repeat this lie ad nauseam, Brian? Section 2 of the 14th amendment pertains only to apportioning members of the House of Representatives among the states based on their population. The only mention of males is to reduce a states apportionment if they deny males 21 years of age or older the right to vote. That section says NOTHING regarding equality of the sexes; only uneducated and lying morons like you think otherwise.
How do you know what every member of Congress and every state legislature thought or believed 150 years ago? Do you hear voices telling you these things?
Neither do you, Brian. In fact you've proven yourself totally inept at understanding either the constitution or SCOTUS rulings.
SCOTUS has ruled otherwise. From the majority opinion of Lawrence v. Texas:
"Had those who drew and ratified the Due Process Clauses of the Fifth Amendment or the Fourteenth Amendment known the components of liberty in its manifold possibilities, they might have been more specific. They did not presume to have this insight. They knew times can blind us to certain truths and later generations can see that laws once thought necessary and proper in fact serve only to oppress. As the Constitution endures, persons in every generation can invoke its principles in their own search for greater freedom."
Try again, bigot.
Amendment XIX: "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
And the Civil Rights Act of '64 clarified sex is not a legitimate excuse for denial of equal protections.
