Methinks we should be aware that something written on a piece of paper a few hundred years ago and still enforced in one country isn’t the arbiter of all that is right and true. Admittedly, the US Constitution is a fairly cool piece of paper but a better document to cite in internet arguments might be the The Declaration of Human Rights. Remember, humans do exist outside America.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.
Even this document has flaws, the male as default, the implied heteronormativity in Article 16:
(1) Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.
(2) Marriage shall be entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses.
(3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.
(And I’ll let you interpret this post as you will, while I return to my readings on post-modernism *shudder*)
