Ruth Bader Ginsburg And Her Necklace of Dissent Signals Fangirls

Did you have any idea that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a style icon who sends messages by the subtle use of different collars over her black robe? No? Me, either. It is well known that she was besties with the late and beloved Justice Antonin Scalia. I just always saw her as a doddering, old pro-baby killing liberal.

Apparently, Ginsburg’s necklaces or collars are like a Bat Signal to the legions of legal fangirls out in Liberal Land. Google “Ruth Bader Ginsburg Necklace and you get nearly eight million (8,000,000) hits. The Ruth Bader Ginsburg “Dissent” necklace is really popular. Fox News reports:

Earlier this week, Banana Republic announced that they’d be reissuing a black, bib-like collar necklace with faux-jewel detailing that the “Notorius RBG” first made famous in 2012. The retailer said they that planned to “proudly” donate 50% of the purchase price to the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project – and the item quickly sold like a hotcake.

“In just a few hours, we pre-sold all units of the necklace that were made in limited edition for January delivery. Given the overwhelming response, we are working quickly to create additional quantities,” reps for Banana Republic wrote on Instagram just one day later.

According to ABC, 85-year-old Ginsburg first received the stylish accessory from the VIP gift bag distributed at Glamour magazine’s “Women of the Year” gala in 2012 and has worn it many a time since.

How did Ruth Bader Ginsburg turn a very common looking mall necklace into a “dissent” necklace? From Town & Country magazine:

Ginsburg pulls out her notorious “dissenting collar” whenever she’d like to communicate her condemnation. (The day after Trump’s election, she wore it to sit on the bench, even though the court didn’t issue any decisions that day.) When Couric asked the Justice why she had selecting this particular jabot to express disagreement, she explained that “it looks fitting for dissent.” It’s become so popular among RBG fans that it’s even spawned fan-made merchandise.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is hot hot hot right now. There is the “Notorious RBG” book and documentary and a movie, “On the Basis of Sex”. And, in a true contradiction in terms, there is the RBG action figure. What’s the advertising tagline? “The RBG action figure comes complete with “dissent” necklace and permanently constipated look.”

Check out this little swipe from Harper’s Bazaar:

Because we all have reason to frequently show our dissent these days, Banana Republic is reissuing the Supreme Court justice’s original collar necklace for a limited time. The brand is donating 50% of proceeds from each necklace sold to the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, which was co-founded by Bader Ginsberg to advocate for gender equality and women’s economic rights.

Yes, you read that right. Fifty percent of proceeds are being donated to the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, co-found by Bader Ginsburg to advocate for those women who make it out of the womb.

Fortune Magazine even made a fashion icon YouTube video for Ruth:

I had no idea RBG was a fashion icon. I thought each year she just crocheted a few new doilies to wear around her neck.

This new look at her has given me a couple of ideas for marketing, like Bader Bladder Oral Arguments Pads for those long days on the bench, or the Ruth Buzzer collar for when you fall asleep at the State of the Union Address. There is money to be made out there for this cult of personality that has arisen around a totally empty personality.

It’t fun to poke fun at someone as evil as Ruth Bader Ginsburg strictly on the basis of her abortion stance. We should all wish her a continued life and good health…just not on the Supreme Court.

    By whipping the women and children in our factories in eastern Crapistan even harder, and withholding their gruel until they have met the new quotas.

    Nothing says fashion icon like a 85 year old living fossil. Live long and prosper, RBG!

    As if I needed another reason to disrespect Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    There is a reason judges wear black robes. They wear them to eliminate their individuality and signal their neutrality. That is why they are plain and generic. It is a visible representation of their impartiality.

    But Ginsburg feels the need to telegraph herprejudice through her apparel. How is a person arguing before the court supposed to react when one of the judges is wearing clothes to indicate that she disagrees with the argument?

    Ginsburg is petty, vain, and not very smart. This is outrageous.

    Imagine Justice Kavanaugh wearing a MAGA hat on the bench. Would that be any more outrageous? How about Justice Thomas wearing an NRA pin? Why not?

      Let’s see. Obersturmf- I mean Special Prosecutor Mueller, wore nothing but white shirts at the FBI, reportedly, because this signaled integrity. If I understood the hagiography aright, the idea was that if sone days he wore a blue shirt, this might be taken as a signal of some sort to the contrary, i.e., that today he was taking bribes or was throwing the case.

      Whatever ridiculous thing he meant, he and Justice Ginsburg are evidently on opposite sides of the integrity vs wardrobe consistency argument. Wonder which one is wrong.

    Time for the old troll to go under that giant bridge in the sky

    It’s not a necklace, it’s a lace on her collar.

  • Jared Black says:

    A few weeks ago, I bought some bottles of wine in the duty free shop in the Dubai airport. Each bottle was wrapped with a plastic netting to prevent breakage. That netting looks just like RGB’s neck accoutrement in the last photo above. Very stylish.

    Best of all, you don’t have to explain what exactly you’re dissenting against, because this may force you into explaining why you’re doing it and sound like an idiot.
