Not an accident

Oh ffs – of course. Kavanaugh likes his women to look like models, and “his women” include his female law clerks.

A top professor at Yale Law School who strongly endorsed supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a “mentor to women” privately told a group of law students last year that it was “not an accident” that Kavanaugh’s female law clerks all “looked like models” and would provide advice to students about their physical appearance if they wanted to work for him, the Guardian has learned.

Amy Chua, a Yale professor who wrote a bestselling book on parenting called Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, was known for instructing female law students who were preparing for interviews with Kavanaugh on ways they could dress to exude a “model-like” femininity to help them win a post in Kavanaugh’s chambers, according to sources.

Let me take a wild guess.

Remember that photo of White House staffers last year? Where every single woman in the photo repeated the theme – the blonde hair parted in the middle with two hanks placed in front of the shoulders just the way Princess Ivanka has arranged hers there? These guys should just create clones for their sexual diversions and let real women get on with life.

Yale provided Kavanaugh with many of the judge’s clerks over the years, and Chua played an outsized role in vetting the clerks who worked for him. But the process made some students deeply uncomfortable.

One source said that in at least one case, a law student was so put off by Chua’s advice about how she needed to look, and its implications, that she decided not to pursue a clerkship with Kavanaugh, a powerful member of the judiciary who had a formal role in vetting clerks who served in the US supreme court.

What, just because it’s deeply insulting and creepy as fuck? Picky picky picky.

In one case, Jed Rubenfeld, also an influential professor at Yale and who is married to Chua, told a prospective clerk that Kavanaugh liked a certain “look”.

“He told me, ‘You should know that Judge Kavanaugh hires women with a certain look,’” one woman told the Guardian. “He did not say what the look was and I did not ask.”

Neither of them needed to. We know the look wasn’t “serious” or “professional” or “industrious” because why would that apply only to women?

Chua advised the same student Rubenfeld spoke to that she ought to dress in an “outgoing” way for her interview with Kavanaugh, and that the student should send Chua pictures of herself in different outfits before going to interview. The student did not send the photos.

Well I certainly look forward to the day when Kavanaugh gets the chance to re-impose forced childbirth on all American women.
