I’m a lawyer. My job is to get the best result I can for my client. Sometimes that means sending a man.
If I am dealing with a judge who discounts what women say because a woman is saying it, I call in a token Y chromosome to argue the motion. And there are many male and female judges who favor lawyers who are men.
Is it fair? Nope.
Is it legal? No.
Is it real? Yes.
Bias is Real and We Have to Acknowledge It
I discriminate against myself because the difference matters to my client. It is my job, and I have a legal and ethical duty take everything into account.
