    “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
    Under a Scalia-type interpretation, wouldn’t this mandate that all convicted sex offenders be given the right to vote?

  3. Anonymous says:

    No. The word “sex” is textually ambiguous, so you have to look to original intent. The framers understood “sex” to extned only to heterosexual intercourse, so only sex offenders who abuse individuals of the opposite sex must be given the right to vote.

    I concede Anonymous’ point. Thank you for the clarification.
