What Is A Woman? The National Women’s Law Center Can’t Answer | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Fatima Goss Graves, president of the National Women's Law Center, was ironically unable to define the word "woman" during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing held Wednesday.

    The hearing was aimed at discussing abortion and the legal consequence of the Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which overturned the landmark case Roe v. Wade, effectively kicking back abortion restrictions to the state.

    "I am a woman, that is how I identify," Graves deflected, when asked by Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) to define the term "woman."

    The NWLC leader then went on to assert that people other than women can get pregnant and that the representative's question is silly because it undermines this apparent reality.

    "But I wonder, however, if in part the reason that you're asking the question is that you're trying to suggest that people who don't identify as women can't get pregnant," Graves continued, according to The Daily Caller. "I think it's actually really important to be very clear here, that there are people who identify as non-binary, I think about 5% of young people, who can be pregnant."

    Clyde responded by saying he wished he could get a simple, direct answer, one that reflects what we all learned in "high school biology."

    Graves suggested she was answering - or not answering - the question from a legal perspective.

    On Tuesday, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) ran into a similar battle. The Republican was accused of being "transphobic" and opening up transgender people to "violence" by a University of California at Berkeley Law professor Khiara Bridges because he asked her if only women can get pregnant.

    "Many women, cis women, have the capacity for pregnancy; many cis women do not have the capacity for pregnancy," Bridges said. "There are also trans men who are capable of pregnancy as well as non-binary people who are capable of pregnancy."

    "I want to recognize that your line of questioning is transphobic ... and it opens up trans people to violence by not recognizing them," the professor charged, later adding that Hawley was "denying that trans people exist and pretending not to know that they exist."

    Notably, Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson during her confirmation hearings, too, was unable to define the term "woman."

    Jackson told Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) that she was unable to offer a definition because she is "not a biologist."

    "I can't," Jackson said. "Not in this context, I'm not a biologist."

    Answering simple questions about biology and so-called gender identity have been a major stumbling block for leftists. The Daily Wire's Matt Walsh routinely stumped activists by asking the simple question, what is a woman? And the trend, clearly, caught on to even Congress.

    The author and podcast host, along with The Daily Wire, created a groundbreaking documentary, aptly titled "What is a Woman?" exploring this very question.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
