Ruth Bader Ginsburg Speaks of 9 Women On Supreme Court, Conservatives See Coming Matriarchy, LOL.

Apparently, the mere thought of nine women on the U.S. Supreme Court comes as a surprise, or a horrifying nightmare, to some people.

An all male court existed in this country for some 200 years -- a court that consistently ruled women to be chattel -- but somehow the concept of an "all female court" signifies the coming matriarchy.

What?  Do they fear that nine women on the Supreme Court will rule to put a cap on testosterone levels?

Goddess, I love Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hopes to see an all-female Supreme Court one day. Ginsburg made the comment during a 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference at the University of Colorado in Boulder, according to CNS News. 

“Now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay,” Ginsburg told the conference. “And when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough and I say when there are nine, people are shocked.” 

Ginsburg said that no one has “ever raised a question” when nine men were serving on the bench.
