Joe Biden promised that in picking a nominee to fill the upcoming opening on the Supreme Court, he would not consider any white or Hispanic or Asian people and not consider any men at all. He promised to consider only black women.
Only about 2% of American lawyers fall into that demographic. In overtly discriminating against the other 98%, Biden committed an obvious violation of the Civil Rights Act, but I rather doubt Biden’s Department of Labor will file suit.
True to his promise, Biden found a black woman lawyer to nominate. Her name is Ketanji Brown Jackson.
It was Biden who touted his nominee as “a black woman” even before he chose her, and so I suppose we should honor that designation. Henceforth, she is “Black Woman Brown Jackson.”
This week the Senate is holding confirmation hearings on her. Democrats in the hearing are displaying the kind of civility for nominees that Republicans ordinarily do, and so are Republicans. Everyone is kissy face. Because this is a Dem nominee, nobody is displaying the kind of smackdown incivility that Dems do when the nominee is a Republican. Don’t expect entertaining questions like, “Have you stopped being a serial rapist?”
The Republicans did have the temerity to ask Black Woman Brown Jackson about the current legal topic of transgenderism. That’s the deal where people decide that nature made a mistake by matching their phenotype with their genotype. These people believe they should have a penis even though they have female chromosomes or they should not have a penis even though they have male chromosomes.
I’m oversimplifying. These people think the gender choices are far more than male and female, but you get the idea. They think a person’s gender is determined not by the genes that dictate their genitals among other things, but by a choice made in their minds.
In general, this asserted angst over what’s between a person’s ears and what’s between their legs is not a spectacle that interests me. I don’t care if a man wants to pretend to be a woman, or vice versa, and I don’t care if they want to mutilate their naughty bits. I’m even willing to play along with their choice of pronouns, which seems silly but harmless.
But I draw the line on them injuring other people. For example, a mediocre male swimmer with male testosterone levels and a penis is leaving women in his(er) wake in college swimming pools and is sharing their locker room. (S)He apparently gets his(er) jollies this way – fine – but (s)he’s denying women the recognition and awards they earned through a lifetime of work, dedication and achievement.
In the case of children confused about sexuality, as many children are at one time or another, they get “help” in making this purported choice of gender from school counselors who make a living by persuading them that they know better than nature. That persuasion often takes place in secret from the child’s parents. And then the children get their genitals whacked.
Back to Black Woman Brown Jackson. She was asked in the Senate confirmation hearing a straightforward question, or so you might think if you’re as unsophisticated about such things as I am. It went like this:
Senator: “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?”
Black Woman Brown Jackson: “Can I provide a definition? No, I can’t.”
Senator: “You can’t?”
Black Woman Brown Jackson: “Not in this context, I’m not a biologist.”
Huh. It takes a village to raise a child and now it takes a biologist to define “woman.” Black Woman Brown Jackson is 51 years old and a graduate of Harvard Law School but still doesn’t know what a woman is – something I knew by the time I was 25 (though admittedly not very well) – even though the status of “woman” was an explicit condition to her nomination.
The Republicans might consider the following line of questions at tomorrow’s hearing:
Republican Senator: “Forgive me if this question seems impertinent, but please bear with me. To me, you look like a woman, and President Biden said you’re a woman. Are you?”
Black Woman Brown Johnson: “Yes, I am.”
Republican Senator: “Given that you said yesterday that you cannot define the word ‘woman’ what is it that makes you think you are one?”
That line of questioning will not take place, because logical but awkward questions to Dem nominees are deemed by the woke establishment – which is to say almost all of the establishment – to be hateful or racist or something or another that’s bad.
In any event, I suspect that Black Woman Brown Jackson will decide on a definition of “woman” within seconds after she is confirmed by the Senate and will stick to that definition for her 30 or more years on the Supreme Court. We won’t like her definition, nor will any real biologist.
But the lying leftist wokerati will. This is the same group that says Justice Clarence Thomas is not really black, because he’s a conservative.To the left, what matters is ideology and power, not logic, honesty or truth.
