So under 1, men will have the right to go into women's changing rooms, compete in women's sporting events, go in for scans to check if they're pregnant, etc? You might want to define what you mean by "rights" a little better. You should probably look at the state equal rights amendments, most of them are worded better than this is.

Rights, not access. -Bigljbigl (talk/stalk) 08:33, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
Doesn't access imply a right to said access? Nog Bogmire (talk) 08:36, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
Also banning legal personhood for corporations is absurd, that would mean if I'm injured by the actions of someone working for a company, I could only sue individual employees for their direct actions and would lead to nightmarish trials trying to figure out who exactly was responsible for a particular decision within a massive corporate structure. No more corporate manslaughter, no more class actions, just tons and tons of deniability. Nog Bogmire (talk) 08:41, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
I guess I see your point on corporate personhood. And why does it say your account doesn't exist? -Bigljbigl (talk/stalk) 08:45, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
No idea, I did only register earlier today because I was bored and wanted to edit some bible-related things? Nog Bogmire (talk) 08:49, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
I fixed it. Turns out you need to create your user page. -Bigljbigl (talk/stalk) 10:12, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
Solitary confinement: needs some method of dealing with violent inmates who are placed in solitary because they're a danger to other inmates, especially lifers who know they won't get parole (which you're going to be creating more of by switching from the death penalty and closing Supermaxes). I think being locked in a dark room with someone who's assaulted or killed every other cellmate they've ever had would also count as a form of torture. Not to mention it's sometimes used because the inmate is the one who would be in danger in the regular prison population. Nog Bogmire (talk) 09:12, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

UK version[edit]

All Parliamentary candidates (and at least some other groups of candidates) should be made to take the UK Citizenship test #and get a reasonable score#. (talk) 10:19, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
