The Specter of a Lesbian Supreme Court Justice

Our colleague Ruthann Robson collects more commentary on the speculation about Elena Kagan's sexuality and links to her (that is, Ruthann's) 1993 article discussing The Specter of a Lesbian Supreme Court Justice.

Andrew Sullivan makes the case here for why it's appropriate to ask about Kagan's sexuality.  In brief: if she is gay, it would be appalling to use this nomination to advance the politics of the closet.
