I Don’t Give A Flying Fig How Many Women Law Clerks Brett Kavanaugh Hires
July 3, 2019

<<....>>

Here's the thing, I guess, in theory it is nice that Kavanaugh hired women rather than more bro-dudes but I do not care. It doesn’t matter how many women he surrounds himself with — it can’t make me forget the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I don’t know if his clerks don’t believe Dr. Ford or merely don’t care but neither makes me happy to have these women close to the levers of power.

And I don’t care how many women law clerks will be working at the Court when it, seemingly inevitably, overturns Roe v. Wade. What I care about is that reproductive freedom is under attack across the country, and it doesn’t matter what body parts you have or what gender you identify as if you are willing to participate in the destruction of these fundamental freedoms.

I’d be happier if every clerk was a guy if it meant my rights were secure. But that’s not a deal I get to make. Instead, we have to watch as Kavanaugh gets a gold star for diversity at the same time he’s part of a Court majority that systematically chips away at rights.

The way this new Court is working out its impossible to predict how they are going to rule.

There seems to be no rhyme or reason to how they are voting.

You have righties siding with the left and lefties siding with the right.
