Response to BumRushDaShow (Reply #4)

5. The 27th didn't include a ratification deadline

ERA did. The website is being intentionally deceptive.

For instance - The time limit on ERA ratification is open to change, as Congress demonstrated in extending the original deadline,

This has by no means been established. In fact, a court had ruled just the opposite when the issue became moot (because the supposed extension had also expired). A purported extension that gets voted on after the time limit has expired is even more questionable than the one that was under review.

It's also worth noting that RBG has recently commented on the issue in a way that not only rejects this spin... but implies that she doesn't consider it an actual question that might come before the court (or she would have kept her mouth shut).
