What is a woman?

If I told you in 2012 (I did) that the definitional games that liberals played with ‘marriage’ then would also be applied in areas that were as yet not controversial, like sex, I would have been called a ‘swivel-eyed loon’ (I was). A mere decade later, a nominee to SCOTUS believes that only a biologist can define or recognize what is a ‘woman’.

  1. what are her pronouns? maybe she is a man? what’s with the dreadlocks? is it appropriate for a high court judge to look like a rastafarian dope head?

  2. Well, interestingly, I assume she (and her fellow Democrats) would not actually accept a biological definition of what is a woman!
    What a tangled web they weave..

  3. Can we then not use the same (il)logic and ask questions such as, ‘What is a black person?’ If it requires a biologist to identify a man from a woman, would it not also require a biologist to identify a white person from a black person etc?

  4. I should also add that the fact that we have to ask this question shows just how far we have sunk.

    “If I told you in 2012 (I did) that the definitional games that liberals played with ‘marriage’ then would also be applied in areas that were as yet not controversial, like sex, I would have been called a ‘swivel-eyed loon’ (I was).

    Yes, which is why I voted NO to SSM….because redefining marriage was just the tip of the iceberg.

  5. SEN. BLACKBURN: “Can you provide a definition of the word ‘woman’?”
    JACKSON: “No, I can’t”
    Then she’s unfit to sit on the Supreme Court.

    Same here.
    I remember those who argued that it would be just the start of the slippery slope were derided and mocked by leftists.
    But it was, and the left keep moving on to further Marxist goals to destroy western civilisation and all decency.

  7. At the end of the day this furore has nothing to do with biology or “gender” as we have understood it.
    It is about the search for any “minority” that these fools can’t confer “rights” to.

    Ask her to define “abortion”. She will be tied up in semantic knots for days.

  9. When you are that dumb you have no place in the Supreme Court. OTOH if you are that politicised you have to give a dumb answer you still have no place in the Supreme Court.

    No question the cabal of dummies in charge are going to appoint her to the SC. Minority Quotas R Us.

  10. It’s a tiny bit ironic that the Dems for weeks have been falling over themselves to find a black woman for SCOTUS, only to choose someone who doesn’t know what a woman is.

  11. People need to recognize, SCOTUS nominee, Jackson, knows what a woman is, what her answers illustrates is that the Regime will not let her publicly acknowledge it. Stating plainly what a woman is is to risk political and social death.

  12. They asked her (I assume I can refer to her as a her) the wrong question . . . it should have been . . .

    Can you provide a definition of the word wanker ?

  13. Dover – It’d be fun to ask her questions about defining what black people are.

    Is Clarence Thomas black? Is Rachael Dolezal black? Is Elizabeth Warren black?

    Probably too beyond the, um, pale to do so, but it’d skewer the hypocrisy nicely.

  14. It’s not even funny. Once confirmed there’s a high probability this mediocre moron will be there for decades.

    If the US doesn’t disintegrate well before then, which is probably the more likely eventuality.

  15. What’s a woman?
    A man who couldn’t succeed against men and thought ” hold on, I ‘ve got a idea!”.
    See Admiral Rachel Levine; one of USA Todays Woman of the Year.
    And don’t forget everyone’s favourite record breaking swimmer.
    Anyway Ash Barty has retired and I have an idea! I just need to look up who is ranked 462 in mens Tennis and see if they need a manger with vision.

    it also confirms to the left that she’ll be willing to bend to any democrat/woke belief in her decisions.

    That alone should disqualify her.

  17. Just wait until they start changing the definition of “child” and “adult”.
    We all know it’s coming, as the slippery slope only ends in hell.

  18. Best answer for a mindless Marxist is- a member of the human race who has two x chromosomes. People can change a lot of things with surgery, injections etc. but not chromosomes.

  20. “…why I voted NO to SSM…”

    Could have gotten the same by saying:

    “The word ‘marriage’ relates to a religious event, hence we will leave this definition unchanged. However, for the purposes of all government interactions, we will now only ask if you have entered into a civil union, and all people who are listed as ‘married’ will automatically be defined as having so entered such a civil union, all government forms will henceforth be printed with ‘in a civil union’ instead of ‘married’, and any such existing forms will be deemed to show said wording for the purposes of any and all government interactions, including legal interactions.”

    IOW, everyone is treated equally and plain English words with meanings known for centuries would not be redefined by the government. Simple. Easy. Cheap. Nondiscriminatory. Not particularly controversial, except for a noisy few with a bee in their bonnet. Win-win.

    Sorry – too sensible I know. Sigh.

  21. “If she doesn’t know what sex she is she’s not qualified to sit on the SCOTUS.”

    Perhaps more concerning is the “logic” used to give a 3 month sentence to someone with kiddie porn, when the prosecutor asked for 24 months and the sentencing guidelines suggested 97 months minimum.
    She apparently believes that because the internet allows people to find and download such images much more easily, the definition of what is “a lot” of such should be changed from what is written into statute law to what she, as the judge, deems is now “a lot”.
    Does that mean that you get a longer sentence if you are stuck on 28.8k dial-up internet than if you have 100M broadband when having the same amount of such illegal porn?

    Setting up a 5-8 year old child to then make an adult choice has already decided our fate.

  23. Stating plainly what a woman is is to risk political and social death.

    If you can’t define what a woman is then by extension you can’t define what a man is. But if this is so then you can’t really talk sensibly about same sex attraction so that is the whole gay lobby under the bus. Similarly the patriarchy and the gender wage gap are out. No wonder she doesn’t want to touch it, too many sacred cows and useful cudgels depend upon the fluidity of definitions.

  24. I suppose we have to be grateful that at least she recognises that a biologist can determine what she is!
    Now all we can hope is that she avails herself of one.

  25. “If you can’t define what a woman is then by extension you can’t define what a man is.”

    If they are the same, and you can be either depending on your own view of what you “identify” as, then if you suffer “discrimination” the obvious solution is to “identify” as the other temporarily and then it’s all good. And if you can’t tell by appearances and all that matters is how you feel about it, then who can be upset if someone “misgenders” you?

  26. rubbing your face in insanity is a pure marxist power play

    bang on
    their post-modern gimmick isn’t about you getting their pronouns correct,
    it is more about putting you up to you neck in epistemic quicksand

    Yes…which is why many gay and lesbian women are waking up to this nonsense and seeking to distance themselves from this “Q” and “T” nonsense. There’s a new organisation in the UK (and here too) called LGB Alliance…note the missing letters.
