During the 2020 presidential election, a key promise made was to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court if the opportunity presented itself. Amid the news of Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement, the chance arose for Biden to make good on his promise.
Enter Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. During her confirmation hearing before the Senate, Jackson was asked by Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to provide a definition for the word “woman.”
Biden’s nominee stated that she wasn’t able to do this. Jackson then continued, saying she’s unable to define the word “woman” because she’s not a biologist.
She’s taken a lot of backlash for this. Many people have since noted that an individual doesn’t need to be a biologist to know that a “woman” is defined as an “adult human female.”
One of the latest big names to come out against Jackson’s refusal to define “woman” is former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), as documented by The Blaze.
Gabbard on Jackson’s Inability to Define “Woman”
On Twitter, the former Democratic congresswoman pointed out the insanity of Biden’s nominee being incapable (or rather, unwilling) to define the word “woman.”
Gabbard stated that anyone serving on the Supreme Court and bearing responsibility for protecting Americans’ rights needs to be able to define the word “woman.” Gabbard also clearly noted that a Supreme Court justice needs to be able to recognize that a woman is separate from a man.
Later, the former congresswoman stated it’s both absurd and hypocritical for Jackson to refuse defining the word “woman” when her womanhood played a strong role in her nomination to the Supreme Court.
Gabbard’s take on Jackson’s inability to define “woman” is shared by many Republicans and conservatives across the nation? If Jackson can’t define “woman,” how will she be able to aptly make decisions that impact the United States of America?
Doubling Down on Insanity
After Jackson’s claim that she can’t define “woman,” since she’s not a biologist, USA Today went even further.
According to USA Today, biologists may not even be able to define “woman,” due to the lack of a “simple” answer. Yet the simple answer is that a woman is an adult human female.
This isn’t difficult. The idea of having a Supreme Court justice who can’t or won’t acknowledge what a “woman” is provides much cause for concern. After all, many matters involving gender come before the Supreme Court.
It doesn’t work to anyone’s advantage if even one member of the highest court of the land can’t distinguish a woman from a man.
