Federal judge rules that any military draft must include women.

Seems fair.

Courtesy of USA Today:

A federal judge in Texas has declared that the all-male military draft is unconstitutional, ruling that “the time has passed” for a debate on whether women belong in the military.

The decision deals the biggest legal blow to the Selective Service System since the Supreme Court upheld the draft in 1981. In Rostker v. Goldberg, the court ruled that the male-only draft was “fully justified” because women were ineligible for combat roles.

But U.S. District Judge Gray Miller ruled late Friday that while historical restrictions on women serving in combat “may have justified past discrimination,” men and women are now equally able to fight. In 2015, the Pentagon lifted all restrictions for women in military service.

The case was brought by the National Coalition For Men, a men’s rights group, and two men who argued the all-male draft was unfair.

Men who fail to register with the Selective Service System at their 18th birthday can be denied public benefits like federal employment and student loans. Women cannot register for Selective Service.

The ruling comes as an 11-member commission is studying the future of the draft, including whether women should be included or whether there should continue to be draft registration at all.

I actually do not think that there will be a draft ever again unless we really fuck things up.

And I have to say that if politicians fear that their little girls might die overseas in a muddy ditch the chances that they are going to support a military action that might require bringing back the draft is virtually nonexistent. 

Still, if they do, there is no reason the ladies should be left out of the fun.

    Silly girls. Im sure there are “some” bad azz women that would like to join the boys in combat but they do not install tampon machines in war zones. Cant wait for the fad and trend to once again be A Woman is a Lady, attempts to raise decent children and a A Man is a man, a dad and gentleman strong. This BS is only harming society and not all women nor men are prepared to fight and die for ignorance. End war. Be happy and raise your kids to be decent humans. Stop fighting to be stupid.

    I would only add one thing: make it AIR TIGHT so that the “fortunate sons” (of bitches)
    can’t weasel out of it the way they did back in space cadet bone spurs’ day.
    Imagine someone like “precious (first) daughter” having to hitch up her britches and fight
    for the country instead of her own bank accounts. OMG I broke a nail!!!!!!!
    Those SOBs are going to prison anyhow. Daddy can’t stop that now and I for one will
    be SMILING from ear to ear the day they do.

    That’s my favorite photo of military women. I’d like to see Trump try to grab one of these ladies by the. . . by the . . . well, by any body part. He’d draw back a bloody stub.

    The term “ladies” is outdated and mysoginistic, as it implies that there are classes of women, i.e., that some women are ladies while others are not.

    It’s never used anymore except by out-of-touch old men like Gryphen and Old Redneck.
