Most women simply don’t have the physical size, strength, endurance, aggression, and willingness to use violence that men do. Sure, I will grant that there are exceptions, but they are few and far in-between. In fact, it would be very reasonable to guess that 99% of women in the military are inferior to the average man in combat, which means we’re only degrading the quality of our military forces by putting women on the front lines. On top of that is conclusive evidence that mixed units are inferior to all-male units, the fact that mixing men and women in high-pressure situations have proven to lead to women getting pregnant and leaving their unit short and if I may express my benevolent sexism, we care more about what happens to women and that’s a problem. It’s bad enough when our guys get tortured or crippled. Hearing about the same thing being done to women, along with rapes, is even worse. Maybe that’s just old school programming that shouldn’t exist in a time when we’re all supposed to be equal, but it’s how most of us feel.
All that being said, we are supposed to be equal, women are serving in the military and they are allowed to serve on the front lines. That means this judge’s ruling is completely reasonable and rational.
Requiring only men to register for the draft is unconstitutional, a federal judge has ruled.
The Military Selective Service Act states that men in the U.S. ages 18 through 25 must register in case the country needs a military draft. Women face no such requirement. On Friday, a federal judge in Texas ruled that a males-only draft violates the equal protection provisions of the U.S. Constitution.
