Fellow liberals: Is RBG being stupid by throwing cold water on efforts to remove the deadline for the E.R.A.?

Update:

She claims to support the ERA ---- she just wants us to take the slow route where it probably won't pass during our lifetimes.

Update 2:

Many legal experts believe there is a credible case to allow congress to remove the deadline (even retroactively) --- this isn't some 'insane' idea --- it's backed up by intelligent legal scholars.

Update 3:

and the constitution doesn't grant states any power to "rescind" ratification, so that's just silly to think they can do that.

      "Is RBG being Stupid" is a question -- not a statement.  Questions cannot be true or false.

    yes, there's still a good case to remove the ERA deadline and ratify it today.

    She's correct in that you can't ignore the deadline just because you want the amendment to pass.

      Congress' extension of the deadline was challenged in the courts.  The Supreme Court didn't rule on it because the amendment failed anyway so it was a moot point.  So the law is still not settled.

    Most of the states have passed it already. Usually it takes about half to ratify a constitutional amendment. I can’t think of anyone who would oppose equal rights for women.
