Republicans' crusade against the transgender community was on full display during the Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearings of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, whom President Joe Biden nominated to the United States Supreme Court in the wake of Justice Stephen Breyer's imminent retirement.

One particularly viral moment came during far-right Senator Marsha Blackburn's questioning of Jackson, when Blackburn demanded Judge Jackson define the word "woman," hoping to hear the accomplished judge parrot the flawed biological essentialism used to define the word in GOP circles.

Watch below.

Jackson responded:

"Senator, in my work as a judge, what I do is I address disputes. If there is a dispute about a definition, people make arguments and I look at the law and decide."

Jackson was chastised by the right, who erroneously claimed she doesn't know what a woman is, and her answer was shared to support their lies that women are supposedly being erased by the transgender community.

At a recent even, far-right Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia alluded to Jackson's answer to the bizarre question, then promoted her own antiquated views of how women should be perceived.

Watch below.

Greene was met with applause after telling supporters:

"I'm gonna tell you right now what is a woman. This is an easy answer. We are a creation of God. We came from Adam's rib. God created us with his hand. We may be the weaker sex, we are the weaker sex, but we are our partner, our husband's wife."

Claims that a celestial being created women from the extracted rib of the first man to ever exist aside, Greene's antiquated assertion that women are the "weaker sex" was met with widespread derision.

People soon began citing examples of women who defy the idea that their sex is inherently weaker.

Social media users fiercely rejected her comments.

Jackson's confirmation will soon head to the Senate floor, and is expected to pass with bipartisan support.
