Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson said she could not define the word “woman”.
Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asked a simple question.
“Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman?’”
Biden’s nominee could not provide an answer. Saying she was not a biologist, Ketanji Brown Jackson said the definition required context. The senator asked if the term “woman” is too controversial and unclear for Jackson, who replied that her role as a judge is to resolve disputes about definitions and make decisions after reviewing the controversy.
“The fact that you can’t give me a straight answer about something as fundamental as what a woman is, that underscores the dangers of the kind of progressive education that we are hearing about,” Blackburn said. “Just last week, an entire generation of young girls watched as our taxpayer-funded institutions permitted a biological man to compete and beat a biological woman in the NCAA Swimming Championships.”
Blackburn then asked what message Lia Thomas’ string of victories sends to young biological girls. Jackson would only say the topic is being “hotly discussed” and could potentially reach the Supreme Court for a decision.
