Don’t you eclipse our decades of work

Strangio is not honest.

That’s not why. The reason we upbraid the ACLU is the insistence on erasing the word “women” from all their advertising and commentary on abortion rights. We don’t think it’s possible to defend our rights effectively without ever mentioning us. We also don’t think there’s anything social justicey or otherwise admirable about shoving the subordinated sex back into the closet marked SUBORDINATE.

Also, by the way, of course Strangio’s colleagues haven’t spent their entire lives litigating abortion cases. They didn’t start at birth, or at age 1, or at age 10, or at age 20. Entire careers is possible; entire lives is not. Lawyers are supposed to be precise with their wording.
