Maybe we would see something different than the fucking bullshit we get from these bullshit artists throughout history?

Who knows? Worth a shot.

Yabbut Maggie was more masculine than 95% of the men in Parliament.

Technically correct, since Parliament includes the Lords.

I don't agree. The point of affirmative action is to to try to make representation more equal, not to swing far in the opposite direction to "balance out" an injustice that happened in the past. You need to admit that it was a problem and then attempt to keep it fairly balanced and diverse going forward (well, as balanced as you can with a odd number of judges).

I hope this isn't too much of a false equivalency, but to me it's kind of like saying "Well, black people didn't used to be able to vote, so now we should make it so white people can't vote, just for a while, to balance out the past injustice."

I don't think she means that specifically.

What she is saying throughout most of the history of the supreme court the justices were all men and no one thought anything about it.

No one thought to question it.

Times they are a changing...

Indeed. While we might say, all else being equal, the odds of a given gender for a given position would be 50/50 (or, okay, fine, 51/49), that would leave a 9-0 split on the order of 1 in 500. And yet somehow for 200 years it maintained that perfect 9-0 split - to say nothing of other representational inequalities, so far as faith, ethnicity, etc were considered...

I'm sure there're some fuckwits going "lol feminazi" on this sort of comment, but who gives a shit?

Well, for a long time here in the land of the free women couldn't vote, own property, etc. So, you couldn't expect them to worry their pretty little heads about complicated things like law, could you?

Depends on the how they get on there really. If they get there the normal way and the court becomes all female then that is fine, but if it required affirmative action then that is just bullshit.

Well, then we have a problem because we ask know women and minorities only ever advance due to affirmative action.
