Justice Sonia Sotomayor on dating and double standards: "My morals would be questioned."

Good luck getting Sonia Sotomayor to blab about her romances. "I don't like people talking about my private life," the Supreme Court Justice told law students at Northwestern University Monday night. She said single male judges date a lot and nobody gossips about them, but "if I did the same thing, my morals would be questioned. So I'm very careful about whom I date and how public it is." And yes, Sotomayor was annoyed by what she thought were sexist questions during her confirmation process, reports the Atlantic. "There were private questions I was offended by," she told the audience. "I was convinced they were not asking those questions of the male applicants." At one point, she was so frustrated "by the minutiae" of the queries that she told a friend: "I think they already know the color of my underwear."

Her crudeness and lack of refinement are very apparent. I would have expected something more inspiring and intellectual from a Supreme Court Justice, but the wise latina wants the world to know how sexually frustrated she is. One certainly knows what's on her mind. It's the demimonde, not the judiciary.
