People online are brutally mocking a Republican Congressmember for refusing to acknowledge other people’s genders because he’s still mad that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson didn’t provide a definition for the word “woman” during her confirmation hearing over a week ago.

During her confirmation hearing, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asked Jackson for “a definition for the word woman.”

“I can’t,” Judge Jackson replied, knowing that Blackburn wasn’t genuinely curious about the definition of the term. “Not in this context, I’m not a biologist.”

It was a brief exchange, but Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) still hasn’t let it go. He started a speech in Congress yesterday with “Thank you, Person Speaker. And I say ‘Person Speaker’ because I’m not a biologist and, out of respect to our Supreme Court nominee, I don’t feel qualified to say ‘Madame Speaker.'”

Good has a history of anti-LGBTQ statements and actions. Then the athletics director at the notoriously anti-LGBTQ Liberty University, which bans LGBTQ students, in 2020 Good ran against the incumbent Congressman in his district, Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA), in the Republican primary because Riggleman officiated a same-sex wedding.

Good’s website said that he holds a “Biblical view of marriage,” opposes a “transgender bathroom mandate,” and will defend “religious freedom” and “Judeo-Christian principles” if elected. He also says Riggleman doesn’t represent the “conservative values of this district.”

His campaigned focused on anti-transgender bias, holding talks with Republican leaders and members of the clergy on topics like “What happens when a male member of your congregation goes on vacation and returns four weeks later as a female?”

Once elected, Good opposed renewing the Violence Against Women Act because the bill restricts the gun rights of people who have been convicted of stalking.

“This legislation makes it clear that Democrats consider gun ownership a second-class right,” he said.
