The Issue: Ketanji Brown Jackson’s refusal to outline the phrase “woman” throughout her affirmation listening to.

It’s past troubling that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson refused to outline “woman” at her affirmation listening to (“ ‘Woman’ trouble,” March 24).

As an excuse for her refusal to reply, she acknowledged “I am not a biologist.” Well, I’m not a podiatrist both, however I do know what a foot is.

If confirmed, how can she resolve instances of intercourse discrimination towards girls when she will be able to’t outline what a girl is?

Also troubling is her report of lenient sentences for these in possession of kid pornography. Thousands of younger youngsters have been sexually exploited to present viewing supplies for these deranged people, but Jackson repeatedly handed down sentences under each federal pointers and the suggestions of prosecutors.

Judge Jackson has no enterprise being on the Supreme Court.

President Biden’s nominee to the Supreme Court can’t outline a girl on the grounds that she will not be a biologist.

That makes her politically appropriate, woke and deceitful — like many different Biden appointees who discover it handy to merely deny actuality once they imagine it’s to their benefit.

How can somebody who refuses to distinguish between a person and a girl be entrusted with making far subtler distinctions in authorized points that may have an effect on the lives of Americans for many years to come?

Sen. Marsha Blackburn requested Jackson, “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?”

“Can I provide a definition? I can’t,” Jackson stated. She tried to justify her non-answer by saying she wasn’t a biologist.

She is aware of what a girl is, however this tells you the way she’s going to rule on issues like males competing in girls’s sports activities. She is not going to rise up for ladies till the woke left tells her it’s OK.

Democrat senators working for re-election this yr in shut races could have to defend their vote for her nomination after she averted answering the easiest of questions.

Ed Buttimore

Cedar Grove, NJ

At a listening to on Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court as a alternative for Justice Stephen Breyer, she was requested by Sen. Blackburn to “define woman.”

Jackson by no means did understand how to reply that query — or she simply didn’t need to reply it.

I’m nowhere close to as clever and as achieved as Jackson. However, I may have answered that query very simply, since I’ve been a male for 73 years now.

The Honorable Ketanji Brown Jackson doesn’t have the maturity and authorized mind right now in her life to change into a Supreme Court justice.

She positively ought to be checked out once more, however solely after a minimal of 10 extra years as a choose. Jackson is simply not prepared, for my part. She’s a lot too younger. She wants extra authorized expertise.

Peter Gryzmolowicz

Orleans, Mass.

Americans are entitled to really feel that Supreme Court Justices ought to be distinctive authorized students and well-informed in different issues.

In Wednesday’s affirmation listening to, Jackson was requested to outline a “woman.” Remarkably, she demurred, saying she couldn’t outline what a girl was as a result of she will not be a biologist.

Perhaps she will be able to’t acknowledge the climate outdoors her window as a result of she will not be a meteorologist?

The reply was insipid. It was frightened, exhibiting her worry of imperfection, and it was childish. It uncovered Jackson as shallow and never worthy of the nomination.

Biden ought to discover one other prospect, reasonably than push somebody who’s not prepared for the huge stage.

Rich Klitzberg

Boca Raton, Fla.

I imagine The Post bought it unsuitable when it stated that Jackson declined to outline “woman.”

She stated she couldn’t as a result of she’s “not a biologist.” Therefore, she believes that it’s a matter of biology. And what does biology say? XX and XY.
