It failed. That’s a good thing, if Barbara Boxer is to be believed:
“It’s the way every law is implemented. You have a law and it’s enforceable, in the courts. That’s how we enforce laws. You have to obey the law and you cannot discriminate against a woman, if this were to be the law. You cannot fire her and if you fire her then you’re going to get sanctions by a fair court and a fair jury. That’s how we do things in America.”
Of course, this law would have the general effect of increasing unemployment among women, since no rational person would want to hire them. Not even generally irrational people would be stupid enough to hire women under such a regime. Really, governments would be the only employer retarded enough to hire women in lieu of such regulation.
At this point, I don’t know why feminists just don’t go ahead and say that they want all the resources at the united states’ disposal, and that they don’t want to have to do anything to get them, other than having a slit and a pulse. Because that’s basically what this sort of legislation amount to: women being able to have a job completely on their terms, without having to worry about such mundane things like showing up or actually performing the tasks for which you were hired. (As Boxer observed, no woman could be fired because the employer firing the woman would have to prove that the woman wasn’t fired because she was a woman. This is a generally difficult thing to do.)
Really, this piece of legislation was nothing more than a shit test, writ large. Thankfully, the US passed the test.
Furthermore, it can be said, in a sense, that feminists are desperate to be governed by masculine leaders, given the sheer inanity of this test. The demands were so far-fetched that only the saddest-sacked of leaders would even take it seriously. When the tests start getting this severe, you can tell that there’s an absence of true masculine leadership. The proper response is to laugh derisively and then sponsor a bill that declares women to be the government-approved maker of sammiches for male consumption.
At any rate, it’s nice to see that rational (read: masculine) leadership isn’t altogether dead in the US. Hopefully this is the start of a new trend wherein the political advances made feminism are clearly and decisively reversed. My only concern is that this reversal doesn’t lead down the road to totalitarianism.
