And I quote “shame on her” from your last post

Oh I see, you have an issue with reading comprehension.

Let me share not even the full post, but just the sentence that you only used the end of; “ That said, she’s a lawyer and should know that you need to cite precedents in a brief, so still shame on her.”

Her gender had nothing to do with my criticism. Her training as a lawyer did. You can tell because if you change the pronoun used to a male pronoun, a non-gendered pronoun, or even a proper noun, like the name Robin. Allow me to illustrate.

“That said, he’s a lawyer and should know that you need to cite precedents in a brief, so still shame on him.”

See how the context of the comment doesn’t change?

“That said, Robin is a lawyer and should know that you need to cite precedents in a brief, so still shame on Robin.”

Again, none of the context of that comment changes.

I used “she” because Robin is, in fact a woman, and “she” is the preferred pronoun for people who identify as women. But my criticism had and continues to have nothing to do with the fact that she is a woman, and everything to do with the fact that she is a lawyer.

I’m glad we could share this educational moment.

PS
I agree wholeheartedly with her post. I wish that citations had been included because that is the easiest way for people on the other side of the argument to poke holes in the argument.
