Hey SONIA SOTOMAYOR—What Did You Think Of My Comrade's LESBIAN PHOTO SPREADS?

Yesterday we reported on Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s fascinating 1995 ruling on whether My Comrade magazine (from which this website originated) could be classified as pornography. 

 

In her detailed analysis of the Winter 1990 issue, she concluded that the magazine was “intended more to amuse than to arouse" (despite the presence of a couple of "erect penises").

 


But  why didn’t Sotomayor chime in about the magazine’s lesbian content?  At that time, My Comrade was two publications in one—the flip side was its Sapphic counterpart Sister!



On the cover were boutique owner and future super-stylist Patricia Field and scandal girl of the moment Sukhreet Gabel.

 

 

 

We would have loved to find out Sotomayor's opinion of Pat’s plunging neckline…

 

 

 Or Sukhreet’s nipple action…

 

 

Or performance artists Shelly Mars and Katie Krocodile cavorting in “Girl Scout Cookies for Nursery Diesel."

 

 

But Sotomayer opted not to comment on Sister! and its lesbian titillation whatsoever.

 

Guess she prefers to keep those kind of feelings to herself...
