The Equal Rights Amendment died in the North Carolina legislature today. I believe it was 1971 before NC got around to ratifying the 19th amendment. John Milton has Adam questioning God's wisdom in choosing to make Eve from man's rib, suggesting that perhaps he was deprived of a bit more of his maleness than necessary. And ever since, man has been scared to let the female out of "her place." I think they are too ware of their dependence on us. I have no desire to comopete with men, nor do I delight in them, but I do resent discrimination based on sex, either way. -- 1979.
