ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The irrelevance of Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s belonging to an all-women’s club (“Sotomayor’s club for women only,” Opinion, Thursday) makes perfect sense in the context of a culture steeped in relativism (the idea that right and wrong depend on status, situations and cultural and gender perspectives).

This relativism boldly proclaims that the rules that govern the oppressors (European and male) do not apply to the oppressed (everyone else). Thus, they have created an environment in which all-women’s clubs, racial preferences, lawbreaking and even certain violent acts can be justified, if not celebrated. This ethos cannot help but divide rather than unite, as there is no objective ethos for people of every culture, gender and faith to rally around. In this bleak and Balkanized world, there are only interests and interest groups.
