Judge with Vagina Engenders Confusion

Canada news:
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in a recent sexual assault case that it was “problematic” for a lower court judge to refer to the alleged victim as a “woman,” implying that the more appropriate term should have been “person with a vagina.”

In a decision published Friday, Justice Sheilah Martin wrote that a trial judge’s use of the word “a woman” may “have been unfortunate and engendered confusion.”

Martin does not specify why the word “woman” is confusing, but the next passage in her decision refers to the complainant as a “person with a vagina.” Notably, not one person in the entire case is identified as transgender, and the complainant is referred to throughout as a “she.”

The transgender folks are mentally ill, but what is her excuse? How did she get on the Canada supreme court if she cannot call a woman a woman?

A person with a vagina is a human female. An adult human female is a woman.

There, done. I didn't even need to call in an expert biologist witness or write a dissertation.

People pretending to be women because they are mentally ill are not women. Who knew?

I would also think a woman should be glad not be to be confused with a man with a mental disorder.
