    There are many women who would disagree with Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.  “Sex” does not make us monolithic in our views even on “women’s” issues.  Good example of a conservative woman judge that woudl likely rule differently: Judge Edith Jones on the 5th Cir. who recently upheld TX’s ultrasound law.

     The fact that the current female Justices routinely fall on the same side of a fault line has everything to do with their ideology and their judicial philosophy (which is why they were appointed by presidents Obama and Clinton) and nothing to do with their sex.

    Funny. So one’s gender does not influence judicial philosophy or ideology? 

    We have always been afflicted by conservative women who will say and do anything for male approval and/or money.
