Happy Parent’s Day

Filed under: Supreme Court — acepundit @ 10:25 am

If Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had her way, there would be no Father’s Day. As the co-author of the “Report of Columbia Law School Equal Rights Advocacy Project: The Legal Status of Women under Federal Law,” she opined:

Replacing “Mother’s Day” and “Father’s Day” with a “Parents’ Day” should be considered, as an observance more consistent with a policy of minimizing traditional sex-based differences in parental roles.

As silly as these non-holiday holidays are, they serve the purpose of recognizing mom and dad on their own special day. We appreciate mom for going into labor, and we appreciate dad for knowing how to drive. Until these roles can be reversed we’ll just have to suck it up and appreciate the “sex-based differences in parental roles.”



  1. She IS a funny little person isn’t she? I’ve always thought she would be perfect to play the part of Mammy Yokum on a re-make of Lil’ Abner.

  2. But if she left the Supreme Court Sam Alito would be without “the Jewish mother he never had” and have no one to straighten out his collar.

  3. Now, who would be a good choice for Senator Jack S. Phogbound—in the same movie? grandma

  4. Call me old fashioned, but I don’t understand what is so wrong with gender roles? My wife and I have a young daughter and there is a clear division of labor between us. We did not discuss who would be responsible for what, but we each inherently understand our roles.
