And she should have! She should still throw it. Shame on those women who worked to kill the "equal rights amendment" for women! Shame on them!

Absolutely! I couldn't understand it then and I can't understand it now. I'm amazed when people vote against their own best interests!

All in a common cause! Once this world has sense enough to realise mankind could exist only if women existed and formed matriarchal societies. Then religion arrived to elevate men to the status of gods, leaving women without their own name, yet as property to be registered. How absurd! Aloha!

Obviously, we didn't pay attention to the most important lessons, methinks. Absurdity...absolutely!
