[Comments under "The Judge Is a Feminist"]
What do you think about Trump’s nomination for SCOTUS? I see this as a worse attack on motherhood/homemaking than anything the Democrats could do. Amy Coney Barrett should be home taking care of those seven children and her husband. She obviously does not need the money. But her career as a lawyer and judge is SO much more important than being a mother. Trump is implicitly sending this message, as I see it.

You said it, baby!
Republicans just have to prove what good little liberals they are.
Mrs. Barrett may be wise as Solomon, but she does not belong in a job this demanding — or in fact, any job, given the size of her family, the age of her children and their financial situation. Not only will her children pay a heavy price, but so inevitably does her husband in his career.
How does a man fulfill his role as head of the family when his wife is a Supreme Court judge?
Okay, so Barrett would be a big improvement over Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whom Barrett called “a great American life”, but she still represents grueling, feminist-style careerism, which is so different from healthy and balanced interest in work and careers — and that model is responsible for the demand for abortion.
If more women are in law, fewer men are in law. If fewer men are in law, fewer men have careers that can support a family. Men can’t have children, get it? But they can support them.
We don’t need women judges.
We need women to defend the home and culture (or at least, what’s left of it).
I don’t even understand why a woman would want to become a Supreme Court judge. I’m not kidding. Sure, it comes with perks, but, Good Lord, what a load of drudgery!
