Cringeworthy: Alyssa Milano Claims Women Aren't Equal Under Constitution

"Did you know women are not guaranteed equal justice under the law of our Constitution? True story."

Being a child star provides fame and fortune. Education? Not so much. Case in point: Alyssa Milano of Who's the Boss. Somewhere during her lifelong career, the actress, now 45, picked up the notion that women in America aren't covered by the Constitution.

Her tweetstorm of ignorance and appeal for special treatment began thusly:

"Did you know women are not guaranteed equal justice under the law of our Constitution? True story. That’s why in 1923 the Equal Rights Amendment was introduced in congress."

Huh?

Milano may want to read Section 1 of the 14th Amendment:

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

Yep, that's what she wants to do.

 

While she's at it, she may as well further the absolute myth of the "gender pay gap":

 

Apparently, not everyone on Twitter is as uneducated as Milano:

 

 

D'oh!

 

The phrase "Shut up and act" comes to mind.

Someone tried to spell it out for her:

Maybe this will help her understand:

With a simple phrase last October, Alyssa Milano ignited the "MeToo" movement; perhaps she should stick to two words at a time, and leave the sophistication of politics -- such as understanding the basic tenets of the Constitution -- to the grownups.
