NYT’s Dowd skewers Justice Alito as ‘holier-than thou preacher' obsessed with reining in 'female sexuality'

Dowd’s piece condemned Alito’s opinion as the Puritans’ “greatest victory” in 400 years and described him as a “holier-than-thou preacher” focused on reining in “female sexuality.”

Dowd presented her column as a commentary on America’s dueling concepts of sexual liberation and “priggishness.” She claimed this notion manifested itself to her when seeing simultaneous news stories of Kim Kardashian “actually wearing Marilyn’s [Monroe] dress” at the Met Gala and of the Supreme Court leak. 

“As I was contemplating the comeback of this sartorial symbol of American seduction, I got another news bulletin: The Supreme Court was going to yank away the right of women to control their own bodies, strapping us into a time machine hurtling backward,” Dowd wrote.
