What's the Point?

That's what I'm wondering about this story -- basically, an account of how "Justice Ginsburg will go it alone as the only female justice."

Please. As the piece itself points out, Justice Ginsburg has been the "only woman" before -- and it's not like she's having to hold her own in a locker room full of naked, rowdy athletes. It's the Supreme Court, for heaven's sake.

Justice O'Connor has done it. Justice Ginsburg can do it. Both have done it in the past, as becomes any female pioneers in any field.

Stories like this just make women look weak and pathetic. Unnecessarily.
