A Definition for the Word “Woman”?

`

“On February 25, 2022, President Joe Biden announced that he would nominate Ketanji Brown Jackson to the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States to fill the upcoming vacancy by Stephen Breyer, who announced his retirement on January 27, 2022 at the age of 83.”

During last week’s U.S. Senate confirmation hearings, numerous Republican thespians, cast… correction… miscast in the role of legitimate legislators* posed questions to Ketanji Brown Jackson, which had little to no relevance to either verifying her stellar qualifications or evaluating her, essentially, flawless character. These bad actors’ actual intent was to raise the curtain on their political theatre, and in the process…

a. repurpose KBJ as their prop / property
b, vent deplorable male white supremacy
c. both bore / browbeat a person of color
d. all of the above

(btw, If you chose “d” go to the head of the class.)

* btw, I’ve granted them anonymity because they’ve already embarrassed themselves enough already. Beyond that, by and large, they’re all cookie cutter interchangeable; i.e., to know one grotesque Trumper Republican is to know ‘em all.

Of course, seeing how, at the very least, you do need one specific sample re their repulsive rhetoric, check out the following actual “Q” and “A”…

Senator (who identifies as a woman): “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?”
Ketanji Brown Jackson: “I’m not a biologist.”

While her “A” proved to be professionalism at its very finest, were anyone to ever pose such a “Q” to this layperson, check out my “A”…

CommonSenseTom: “Why not directly ask each human who identifies as such a being?”

My point being that each individual, who identifies as being a woman, likely harbors a uniquely personal definition; thereby making it absolutely none of my business (especially since I’m a man). I’d never have the audacity to assign, to anyone, the far too limiting / restrictive parameters; e.g., those typically presented within male sexist authored, plumbing only textbooks.

And, for that matter, seeing how ONLY one’s own primary care physician and other medical specialists should be allowed that privilege, that means that all laypersons, especially politicians and media political pundits, must BUTT OUT and STAY OUT, STAT!

Beyond that, with America now being a scant four years away from its 250th birthday, there’s no time like the present for We the New Millennium’s People to revise the following passage FROM THIS:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Founding Fathers / authors of America’s Declaration of Independence

TO THIS:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness; regardless of the contents of their private ‘drawers.”

18th Century Founding Fathers + 21st Century CommonSenseTom (Paine)

Granted, there’s probably a far more delicate, decorous way to express an underwear reference, but, hey, it’s the heartfelt, heady spirit of inclusiveness that really matters, right?

My 2 Cents’ Worth… 5 Extreme Court Nominee Finalists?

 

If all goes off as scheduled, we’ll know, tomorrow, just who #45’s U.S. Supreme Extreme Court nominee will be… the entity who’ll replace the late Antonin Scalia. Zero doubt, this judicial hack will be a Dark Ages, archconservative who’ll get rubber-stamped and wind up serving a lifetime term. And once he has donned his robe, his decisions will drive America backward and downward… will warp and lay waste to civilized society till death do us part… or the end of the world… whichever comes first.

So who might this appointee be? This is pure speculation… but… would it shock anyone if it were one of these creeps?

  1. David Duke (Cross Burning Klansman)
  2. Wayne Lapierre (Whack-A-Doodle Gun Nut)
  3. Pat Robertson (Televangelist Flock Fleecing Hack)
  4. Vladimir Putin (Puppeteer and Ventriloquist)
  5. Xenomorph (Genocidal “Alien” Film Star)

Nevertheless, that’s my two cents’ worth. Now… my Qs for you re my POV…

Do you agree? Disagree? Like? Dislike? In other words…

A penny for your thoughts?

Uh… seeing how I’ve just expressed my “2 Cents’ Worth”… in the spirit of treating prospective readers, followers and commenters as equals, I’ve opted to update that Q thusly…
