Much like KBJ, Biden admin agencies stumped when asked to define what is a ‘woman’

President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson appears to have unknowingly opened Pandora’s box last week while testifying at her Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill.

Turns out, the results of which are reflective of the Biden administration as a whole.

A federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, Jackson accomplished this feat by refusing to answer the simplest question ever, “What is a woman?”

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., asked the Supreme Court nominee: “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?”

“No, I can’t,” Jackson responded, appearing confused when Blackburn pressed, adding: “Not in this context. I’m not a biologist.”

In a follow up to the remarkable development, Fox News asked the Department of Justice, Department of Education, Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Federal Bureau of Prisons for the definition of “woman,” as well as the National Institutes of Health, and to an agency, the administration was in lockstep in failing to do so.

“None of the agencies provided their definition or criteria for an individual to be categorized as a ‘woman,’ despite each boasting entire initiatives aimed at helping women and DOJ declined to comment,” Fox News reported.

The NIH directed Fox News Digital to its website section on “sex and gender.”

“‘Sex’ refers to biological differences between females and males, including chromosomes, sex organs, and endogenous hormonal profiles,” the website said. “‘Gender’ refers to socially constructed and enacted roles and behaviors which occur in a historical and cultural context and vary across societies and over time. All individuals act in many ways that fulfill the gender expectations of their society. With continuous interaction between sex and gender, health is determined by both biology and the expression of gender.”

The term ‘woman’ is not mentioned, even though the agency uses it frequently, and when asked about the omission, the NIH declined any further comment.

“After two days and multiple replies stating that the inquiry would be addressed, the HHS failed to provide an answer,” Fox News shared, noting that the agency just released a document titled, “Gender Affirming Care and Young People.”

Even the RAND Corporation was perplexed over the definition of a woman.

The think tank that is almost entirely funded by the U.S. government said they did not have a definition for the word “woman,” despite extensive research into women’s rights, health and fitness, according to Fox News.

“You are correct in that RAND has done a number of studies related to gender and women specifically, but our reports are mostly focused on the impacts to women of various policies or circumstances,” a RAND spokesperson told the network. “I don’t believe your question is one that we have ever explicitly researched, thus I don’t have anyone who can speak to it. Sorry we can’t be more help.”

And suddenly, Ketanji Brown Jackson has plenty of company.
