There are 33 amendments that have been offered up by Congress of those six flopped ratification by the mandatory three quarters of the state senates and four are officially still awaiting decision before state politicians. Beginning with the eighteenth amendment every amendment that was presented except for the nineteenth amendment and the still unresolved child labor amendment of 1924 has a definite time limit for ratification. There lies a mystery in the very first Thirteenth Amendment, the Titles of Nobility Amendment presented in 1810, which would have eliminated the citizenship of any American acquiring a title of nobility or honor from any foreign power or otherwise, the mystery is whether this amendment was ratified and has been illegally removed from the Constitution (Mount, 2010). The questions are what happened to this amendment, where did it go, and whether this amendment was actually ratified. The theories that try to answers these questions are that the Title of Nobility Amendment was un-ratified and erroneously printed for about fifty years or may have been ratified and then illegitimately eradicated from the Constitution.
However, there are men that have the concept as a feminist would. I’m one of those men that believe the male and female genders should have equal rights. Though there may be some ascribed genetic differences between a male and a female, the “nature” of the genders, does not impede a woman to do as much or more than a man. Many philosophers degraded women, by rejecting their philosophy. Basically, the integration of reason, virtue, and knowledge was rejected for women.
The Faults in Feminism The term “feminism” tends to have a negative connotation in today’s culture. Feminism is now focusing on female dominance and male disrespect. Women are fighting for equality, yet using personal bias to define equality, claiming identical rights for all will produce an equal culture. The mainstream feminist movement is using this corrupted view of equality to force rights of women. Contrary to popular belief, true feminism fights for true equality for women, as well as other people groups.
‘Stealth feminism’ is when women agree with all that feminism stands for but reject the label (Kimmel 263). The media tends to portray feminism in a negative way; and as a result of this, the status is rejected by young women. “They believe that if they were to call themselves feminists other people would think that they must be strident, domineering, aggressive and intolerant and-worst of all- that they must hate men”(Moi,1736). Some women will not want to be associated with such descriptions or agree with what the feminists stand for but would rather be identified with egalitarianism. Zucker defines egalitarianism as the phenomenon “In which women espouse feminist beliefs regarding the equality of women and men, while simultaneously rejecting feminist identity” (Zucker paragraph 9).In this case, women are either for feminism or against it.
He also portrays women as vulnerable to show that society believed women were weak to love and could only make unwise or dangerous decisions because of it. Although there are no facts of Shakespeare’s viewpoints on certain issues, readers receive incite of his view of women through their portrayals in his
Some men as well as women think that part of the feminism’s definition is that women want to be men. That is so far from the truth. Having the same rights and equalities of men is not the same as wanting a penis. Feminism has a misconception of being a movement that is anti-male. An example of this thinking is a quote from Reverend Jerry Farwell “Feminists hate man.
In short, all these three protagonists have their worlds, choices, duties in control by their husbands. They don’t gain recognition by their own selves but by who they are labeled as women. Men think that they don’t have the right to change the way they should be just because they want to express themselves. They think that when women change their persona, it’s seen as a wrong move or a “disgrace” for a female to make. But mostly to sum things up, it’s all about gender discrimination.
Ther... ... middle of paper ... ...or failure of women in searching for feminist rights; it shaped two ideas that further explain such failure. First, these problems lead to moral failure in women’s battle for feminist rights. Due to the fact that these are ideas are contradicting the morality of feminist rights; it does not make women and men the same or as equal. Therefore, those who believes and live by such thoughts as the method to gain feminist rights will be considers and morally failures; they were not able to seek for the true feminist rights. Second is the fact that those problems are the only source women have in guiding them to search for feminist rights.
The plaintiffs spent a great deal of time arguing Section 30-1-4.11 (Shelby, 8). They felt that this was a violation of their civil rights because they were being treated unfairly, as well as feeling others were being biased to just their beliefs. Under the Fifth Amendment you can’t be biased towards others just based on their sexuality. The plaintiff argued that the defendants were misusing the Tenth Amendment, which implies that the federal government cannot intrude on a state’s decision to recognize same-sex marriage; therefore, Utah thinks that they should be able to choose whether or not they recognize same-sex marriage. The plaintiffs disagree with the defendants, as they say this case is not based on the interpretation of the Tenth Amendment, but instead, the Court grounded its holding in the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment2 (Shelby, 12).

I may not have had the freedom to participate in any sport I wanted to without Title IX’s passage forty years ago. However, despite the law’s good intentions and positive effects for women, it has also damaged men’s sports programs and continues to do so. Compliance rules for Title IX have forced institutions to prioritize how their athletic budget is distributed, which has caused a decrease in non-revenue producing men’s sports programs.
