National Post columnist Jamie Sarkonak raises the spectre of the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) taking on the spirit of our times in a recent article titled, “We didn’t need ‘person with a vagina’ added to the legal vernacular.“

She goes on to describe how the SCC “has adopted terminology promoted by gender activists” twice in the past year.

“What the Supreme Court demonstrates again and again is a set of scales tipped towards one side of this issue,” she writes. “If you believe that men are male and women are female, you can’t realistically expect the top court to hear you out as it would a gender-spectrum believer. That’s a problem, especially now that philosophical debates increasingly play out in the courts.”

A court taking on the “spirit of the times” is, some would say, natural. Why the fuss?
