Twitter is buzzing today over the news that Justice Ginsburg wants an all-female Supreme Court. Girls rule, boys drool! Or something. She’s not really sure, what with all the court nonsense interrupting her naptime and all.
Ginsburg made the comment during a 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference at the University of Colorado in Boulder, according to CNS News.
“Now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay,” Ginsburg told the conference. “And when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough and I say when there are nine, people are shocked.”
That’s right. But, no worries!
Nothing to see here, move along rubes! Hmm, will the court be all “wise Latinas” only or will other women be allowed? Of course, only if they are the “right kind of women” who consider themselves helpless and hapless Julias. No thinkies required! It’s not about the best qualified, it’s only about what’s under your skirt. Wow. You’ve sure come a long way, baby!
Twitter users aren’t moving along. Instead, they are pointing out the obvious with their trademark snark.
What? The horror!
Gasp! What about that Justice Ginsburg? How does that play into your gender card-holding hand?
Here is a Teachable Moment for you, Justice Ginsburg:
Lady smarts, not lady parts.
