The Great Awokening has reached every nook and cranny of our culture. And the impact of this disease is now fully apparent. If you are full tilt Woke, chances are good you have traded in your brain for a bowl of oatmeal. Sure, you can have a half dozen degrees listed after your name, but you can still be utterly mindless by clinging to all the latest leftist nostrums and crusades.

And one of the worst and most senseless of the Woke agenda items is the trans ideology madness. The gender benders are so fully at war with reality, with biology, with rationality, and with common sense that there is really no way you can have an intelligent discussion with them. They are far too willing to simply dish up brainless cliches and mantras.

The most recent example of woke inanity comes from Washington DC – no surprises there of course. It concerns the foolishness that came from the lips of Joe Biden’s nominee for SCOTUS. The Supreme Court of the United States nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson was asked a rather simple question on Tuesday night as part of her Senate Judiciary confirmation hearings 

Senator Marsha Blackburn, a Republican from Tennessee, asked Jackson something that most five-year-olds could easily answer: ‘Can you provide a definition for the word “woman?”’

Her reply was this: ‘Can I provide a definition? No, I can’t. Not in this context, I’m not a biologist.’

Good grief. And she is meant to become one of the top nine justices on the highest court in America? This is above her pay grade? Really? Thankfully plenty of folks who can still think straight were quick to jump on this idiocy.

Media personality Piers Morgan for example tweeted: ‘Ridiculous. I’m not a brain surgeon but I know what a brain is. This is where “progressive” thinking leads – to a terror of stating basic unarguable facts lest it offend the woke brigade.’

Or as investigative journalist Sara Carter stated: ‘Wow, our Woke world has come to this that an educated woman can’t even define herself… Soon many Woke brainwashed people won’t even be able to define human…’ Yes quite right.

And the ironic thing is, this uber-Woke nominee admitted that this is about biology. Exactly. That is what we have been saying all along. Forget the ludicrous ideology and stick with the biology. And biology makes it very clear whether you are a man or a woman. As Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon put it: ‘To say biologists must answer this question is to suggest that womanhood is tied to biology (which is what conservatives argue).’

Christian commentator Darrell B. Harrison concurs: ‘Whether she realises it or not, by declaring, “I’m not a biologist,” Ketanji Brown Jackson is tacitly admitting that gender is biological and that biology is both the starting point and ending point in defining what a “woman” (or “female”) is. She knows the truth—as do we all.’

And Australian political scientist Stephen Chavura rightly said this: ‘I think it’s important to know whether Helen Reddy consulted a biologist before she co-wrote and performed I Am Woman (1971). And the same goes for any “woman” today who claims to identify with the lyrics. Are you an expert in biology? If not, please be quiet.’

Sadly her ignorance of basic biology extends to other important areas. As one recent article puts it concerning her views on abortion:

During a back-and-forth between Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), about whether an unborn child can live independently of its mother outside of the womb, Judge Jackson stuck to such a line as, ‘I’m not a biologist,’ going on to say, ‘I haven’t studied this. I don’t know.’

She did respond that, ‘What I know is that the Supreme Court has tests and standards that it’s applied when it evaluates regulation of the right of a woman to terminate their pregnancy.’ One does not need to be a biologist to look up and find out that viability – when the child can survive outside of the womb – is considered to be around 23 to 24 weeks. Even The New York Times is admitting this…

During Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) line of questioning on Wednesday, he had asked Judge Jackson, ‘Can an unborn child feel pain at 20 weeks?’ To which Judge Jackson replied, ‘I don’t know.’ She similarly did not know that an unborn child is given anaesthesia if there is surgery provided in utero. The senator pointed out to Judge Jackson that, ‘Well that may come before you one day, so just keep an open mind.’

There are plenty of other problems with the nominee, including her pathetically weak response to child pornography. She has a rather poor record when it comes to sentencing child-porn offenders. Far too often she simply sentenced them to a few months of prison time when all the expert legal opinion is to sentence them to several years at least. But being soft on crime is another hallmark of the woke, liberal mindset.

The simple truth is, Biden’s nominee for the SCOTUS replacement is a typical pro-abortion, pro-woke liberal. As expected. And this is of interest: in a speech she gave some weeks ago she spoke about how important her faith is! Um, if a conservative President had nominated a faith-talking judge, the lefties would be going crazy by now: ‘Hey, we must keep church and state separate!!’ All this is usual leftist hypocrisy. 

And when you get a potential top judge in the land saying she does not know the difference between a man and a woman, then you know America is in deep, deep trouble. Um, I wonder what bathroom she goes to when she is not in a nomination hearing.
