My cmnt: In the best attempt at acting stupid since Hillary replied in reference to wiping her hard drives of all data, “Like with a cloth or something?”; KBJ said she cannot define what a ‘woman’ is. “I’m not a biologist,” she said.
My cmnt: Fortunately I have several dictionaries in my home so I can still look up words officially before they are scrubbed or altered by the Thought Police online. We have been under NewSpeak by the Left for some time now in this country.
The term “newspeak” was coined by George Orwell in his 1949 dystopian novel “1984”. In Orwell’s fictional totalitarian state, Newspeak was a language favored by the minions of Big Brother and, in Orwell’s words, “designed to diminish the range of thought.”. Newspeak was characterized by the elimination or alteration of words that remind people of God, freedom, individuality or Republicanism.
- ambiguous euphemistic language used chiefly in political propaganda.

Womyn is one of several alternative political spellings of the English word women, used by some feminists. There are other spellings, including womban (a reference to the womb or uterus) or womon (singular), and wombyn or wimmin (plural). Some wags have suggested adding wombat to the mix.
‘Woman,’ ‘womxn’ or ‘womyn’: Campus feminist groups opt for alternative spelling
MARIA LENCKI – FRANCISCAN UNIVERSITY OF STEUBENVILLE • JANUARY 10, 2019 for The College Fix
Practice meant to ‘shed light on prejudice’
Campus feminist groups across the United States are increasingly adopting an alternative spelling of the word “woman,” replacing it with variants such as “womxn” and “womyn” in part in order to avoid spelling the word “man” or “men.”
From the Apple dictionary:
Just to be clear, also from the Apple dictionary:
SOOO… by the law of congruency: Because woman equals female and female equals the sex that bear children – ipso facto: a woman is an adult human who can bear children. I hope this helps Ketanji understand that she is in fact a woman. Or to put it in even simpler terms: Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina.
Also from Amazon – and ADA compliant:
Even Amazon knows the difference between male and female:
Is Amazon colluding with Apple (two of the biggest companies on earth) to perpetuate stereotypes of male and female? Personally I am shocked, just shocked!

From the Merriam-Webster online dictionary:

5a chiefly dialectal : WIFE
6: a woman who is extremely fond of or devoted to something specifiedI’m a chocolate woman through and through, but one bite of West’s banana pudding cupcake and I was sold.— Hattie Brown Garrow
My cmnt: Of course the irony here is dripping. Ketanji was chosen by O’Biden for the EXACT reason that she IS a woman (specifically a black woman). If even the aged, senile, stupid presidential puppet Joe Biden can know a woman when he sees one, then surely Ketanji, with her “towering intellect” must be able to define the word herself. This is what is called being “hoisted on your own petard”.
“The term hoisted by one’s own petard means to fall foul of your own deceit or fall into your own trap. This term has its origin in medieval times when a military commander would send forward one of his engineers with a cast-iron container full of gunpowder, called a petard, to blow up a castle gate, obstacle, or bridge.” from Grammar Monster
President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, could not define the word “woman” during her confirmation hearing on Tuesday.
Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asked Jackson if she could provide a definition for the word “woman,” in light of recent national debate regarding transgender athletes and men who compete in women’s sports.
Jackson, who was nominated by Biden because she is a black woman, could not answer Blackburn’s question.
Blackburn asked, “can you provide a definition for the word woman?”
“Can I provide a definition? No, I can’t,” Jackson replied.
“You can’t?” Blackburn again asked. “Not in this context, I’m not a biologist,” Jackson said.
