Sam: How can you have an objection to something that says - 

Ainsley: Because it’s humiliating. A new amendment we vote on, declaring that I am equal under the law to a man? I am mortified to discover there’s reason to believe I wasn’t before. I am a citizen of this country, I am not a special subset in need of your protection. I do not have to have my rights handed down to me by a bunch of old, white men. The same Article 14 that protects you protects me, and I went to law school just to make sure.
