What is objected to is your unsubstantiated notion that the 14th Amendment forbids the States to make distinctions in law based upon sex, and is a rule to bar every imaginable type of state based “discrimination”___ a word which does not even appear in the Amendment!
The fact is, your interpretation of the 14th Amendment is proven to be in error when reading the very next amendment to our Constitution, the 15th Amendment. This Amendment (the 15th) prohibits a new type of “discrimination” not covered by the 14th Amendment! The American People decide using Article V , the constitutional method for change to accommodate changing times, to prohibit discrimination at the voting booth based upon “race, color, or previous condition of servitude”
Your asserted interpretation of the 14th Amendment is also proven to be absurd when reading the 19th Amendment which specifically forbids a new kind of discrimination. In this Amendment, the People of America decide to amend our federal Constitution to forbid sex discrimination, but they are very specific in limiting it with respect to the right to vote being “denied or abridged” on account of “sex”
Your notion that the 14th Amendment prohibits every imaginable type of discrimination is absurd considering the 15th and 19th amendments had to be adopted to prohibit the specific kinds of discrimination mentioned in them.
Aside from that, the ludicrousness of your interpretation of the 14th Amendment, and that of the Court’s majority opinion, falls flat on its face when recalling that there was a proposed amendment, the so-call “Equal Rights Amendment” attempted to be added to our Constitution in the 1980’s to prohibit sex discrimination. But it was rejected by the People of America, and one of the reasons it was rejected was that it would compel the States to grant marriages licenses to same sex couples!
Why do you embrace a tyrannical supreme court opinion when it defies both the text and legislative intent of our Constitution? Why are you so eager to accept the Court’s anarchy which flouts the rule of law?
We have been warned about you willingness to accept tyranny!
”Submit to despotism for an hour and you concede the principle. John Adams said, in 1775, “Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud.” It is the only thing a people determined to be free can do. Republics have often failed, and have been succeeded by the most revolting despotisms; and always it was the voice of timidity, cowardice, or false leaders counseling submission, that led to the final downfall of freedom. It was the cowardice and treachery of the Senate of Rome that allowed the usurper to gain power, inch by inch, to overthrow the Republic. The history of the downfall of Republics is the same in all ages. The first inch that is yielded to despotism - the first blow, dealt at the Constitution, that is not resisted - is the beginning of the end of the nation’s ruin.” ___ THE OLD GUARD, A MONTHLY JOURNAL DEVOTED TO THE PRINCIPLES OF 1776 AND 1787
The whole aim of construction, as applied to a provision of the Constitution, is to discover the meaning, to ascertain and give effect to the intent of its framers and the people who adopted it.***_____HOME BLDG. & LOAN ASS’N v. BLAISDELL, 290 U.S. 398 (1934)
