Judy Sheindlin rejected several feminist axioms during a Sunday-aired interview with Harvey Levin, inlcuding the framing of sociological differences between men and women as entirely socially constructed and the casting of American society as broadly misogynistic.
Asked if she is a feminist, Sheindlin responded: “I don’t think so.”
“I never had an issue with gender,” said Sheindlin, reflecting on her first year at the Washington College of Law in the early 1960s as the only female student.
Sheindlin also spoke of “innate” differences between men and women:
“I think that there is a difference between men and women as a warrior and a nurturer. … It’s innate.”
Judges without families in courts of family law likely lack necessary life experience to successfully fulfill their duties, added Sheindlin.

Levin, the founder and primary figure of TMZ, worked on The People’s Court for over two decades; Sheindlin’s husband, Jerry, was the face of The People’s Court between 1999 and 2001.
Feminism is a leftist sociological paradigm, framing women as oppressed by, and relative to, men across human history. Its proponents frame women as facing unique and more acute sociological challenges to self-actualization relative to men, asserting that anti-female “sexism” and “misogyny” are widespread social pathologies stretching from the past into the present.
Leftism is predicated on neo-Marxism, which frames the aforementioned feminist axioms as functions of social constructionism; sociological differences between men and women are cast as socially constructed without biological origins.
