Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she is not planning on retiring this year from the most activist court in her memory.

“Justice Ginsburg said she had made a mistake in joining a 2009 opinion that laid the groundwork for the court’s decision in June effectively striking down the heart of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The recent decision, she said, was “stunning in terms of activism.””

But so long as we can learn to love ourselves, I’m not sure how much it matters whether we’re normal or autistic.”
