Florida approved the Article V Convention of States and here is an Amendment Florida came up with. Hold your breath…

Is this what we want an Article V Convention for? Pointless change to make a political point for the feminist movement. LGBT will surely become part of the Constitution for those who aren’t sure about their gender, right behind this garbage. Be grateful it was not voted on, it died in judiciary. It will be back no doubt! RD Party both co- sponsored this.

yes it died, as it should.
There will be plenty more attempts at this type of thing in several States.
This will be used as an argument against Article V.

Why would women give up all their newly acquired rights?

All men and women should be equal, however, as it now stands the law gives hiring, educational and even welfare preferences to Blacks, Women, and gender-benders over White Males. If Affirmative Action was cancelled and everyone was selected based on the best qualified, Americans would truly live up to their potential. As it now exists, only a White Male could possibly know that he is competing in his own group for selection thus without preferences (other than Veteran’s Preference), he knows his group is the toughest to be selected from. All the rest are selected at rates representing their percentages in the general population with little regard given to best qualified among the various groups.

Awhile back there was a white police officer that sued the Dallas Police Department for choosing a lesser qualified and less experienced minority candidate for a high ranking position. I had to chuckle when I read that...lol
