Since you brought up the topic (my turn to rant)


I find it alarmingly sexist the way women are categorized or their accomplishments diminished because they don't fit the liberal definition of how a woman SHOULD think. Not far beneath the surface of this week's hearings was an undertone of "well she's not really a woman because she's not really one of us." Not much different from "then you ain't black."

ACB's nomination doesn't really count because she espouses conservative ideals. She's not really capable of independent thought because she's a Trump puppet. She's not able to demonstrate objective jurisprudence because she's religious.

All in all, I found the whole process quite condescending towards a brilliant individual who is evidence of the progress that women like RBG strove so hard to achieve.
