3. papau I disagree
To your assertion.

Not trying to be argumentative or anything; but in my opinion your argument violates the 9th Amendment within the Bill Of Rights.

Certainly just because there's nothing enumerated in the Constitution guaranteeing that you have a right to equality if your fat, ugly, a garlic eater, a gum chewer, a slow walker, or someone with ugly hair color doesn't mean that you don't have that right. This is the whole basis behind the 9th Amendment. It covers all things not listed in the Constitution, because it would be totally unreasonable to have to list every single right in the Constitution - like the right to go to the bathroom.


In my opinion your argument violates the "Equal Protection Of The Law" clause in the 14th Amendment. Certainly a law protecting an employer which allows him to discriminate against short people, fat people, ugly people, etc, etc as a condiction for employmet. Is a violation of the 14th Amendment.
