No, seriously, just take a moment to really read it.
This is the 14th amendment to the US Constitution, which has been “on the books,” so to speak, since 1868.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Okay, now think about what you just read. All persons born or naturalized in the United States…All persons…ALL..but not women. The Supreme Court already decided that the 14th amendment does not protect the rights of women, even though it, you know, says it does. Nope, doesn’t apply to us. It DOES however, protect the rights of corporations.
So let’s review for a moment. According to the highest court in the land:
Corporation = person
Woman = not so much
Think about that.
Just think about something for a second. What do most women’s magazines have in common? They’re all trying to fix something that’s wrong with you.
The clothes that will make you look ten pounds slimmer instantly. The wrinkle creme that will make you look ten years younger. The right makeup for your complexion. The most flattering hairstyle. The swimsuit that will hide your body’s flaws. Lose ten pounds by Christmas. Hair removal. Freckle removal. Eyelash thickening. Teeth whitening. Lip plumping. Waxing. Concealing. Shaping.
Now what do most men’s magazines have in common? A hot babe whose humanity has been completely airbrushed away wearing next to nothing on the cover.
So the message we seem to be sending is that a man is just fine the way he is. He can look and act like a gorilla and still score a smokin’ hot babe, a scenario that has been played out again and again in television shows and movies, but a woman is wrong and needs to fix everything about herself just to be worthy of a man’s attention.
Just think about that for a second.
Employers run credit checks on all potential employees, some demand Facebook passwords, require their female employees to justify using birth control and pressure their employees into contributing or even joining certain political parties by threatening them with layoffs if they don’t.
You have to show ID when you use a credit card, when you attend a concert, when you vote, apply for a library card, apply for a job, register for school, or open a bank account.
You give all of your personal information including your address, telephone number and credit card information to your phone company, your cable company, your oil company, and your power company.
Anyone can go online these days, plug your name into the google search box and find your date of birth, phone number, and last three addresses.
None of this makes us so much as bat an eye, but running a background check on someone buying something that could potentially be used to kill someone?
