Federal Judge Rules Male-Only Draft is Unconstitutional

This was only a matter of time. The draft is more of an academic exercise for everyone born in the last 30 years or so, but including women just makes sense at this point.

A federal judge in Texas has declared that an 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 registration process in 1981. In Rostker v. Goldberg, the court ruled that a 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 an all-male draft was unfair.

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

    including women just makes sense at this point.

    Oh, really?  Under what definition of “sense”?

    We can all Thank idiotic leftist policy, idiotic feminists at this point.

    I don’t want my wife or daughters drafted into military service. That is a man’s job.

    If they want to voluntarily join, fine.

    This is what happens when idiot leftists and their anti- “toxic masculinity” concepts drive military policy.

    Gives us a society of liberal idiots.

  3. dad29

    All of this comes from the Left’s determination to erase Nature and re-make it to their own design.  No longer “male” and “female,” now perhaps some mixture of each, or none…..

    The elimination of Nature conveniently eliminates Nature’s Maker, too–so now money, or sex, or food, or …whatever….can be god.

    “That is a man’s job”.    As always, a sexist comment from the font of ignorance.

    Based on your extensive military experience and training, could you explain to all of us what this means:

    “This is what happens when idiot leftists and their anti- “toxic masculinity” concepts drive military policy”.




  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    It says exactly what it means.

    Idiotic leftist policy has set up our wives and daughters to be subjected to the draft!

    That is immorally disgusting.

    Man is the protector of the woman he marries and his daughters. If they want to serve in military, great.

    To set them up, by force, to be in a battle situation where they could be raped or killed by the enemy is a reprehensible repudiation of manhood.

    Have you repudiated your manhood by shoving the women in your life in front of you, as a shield, toward the enemies coming at you? If so, shame on you, and turn in your man card.

  6. Le Roi du Nord


    What policy?  Show where there was a leftist policy decision.  Betcha can’t.

    And you still haven’t showed how your extensive military training and experience qualifies you to make such a claim.  And I’ll bet you won’t.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    Liberal stupidity and feminism has set females up for a potential draft/selective service…that is the problem.

    Many women are not insane feminists.

  8. Le Roi du Nord


    So there is no policy?  Just your ill-informed opinion?

    The problem, long in evidence, is that you feel that you have the right to bully and harass anyone that disagrees with you.   To bad you didn’t get drafted or enlist.  Any DI worth their stripes would have had a blast with you….

  9. Kevin Scheunemann

    Oh Nord,

    Yes, Yes, I’m the bully.

    You are OK marching women into the battlefield, and when I say that job should just be for men because we should be the defender and protector of our wives and kids…l’m the bully?

    Liberalism truly makes the world insane.

    I guess the last vestige of the need for men has truly been destroyed by liberalism.

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    Great, you finally admitted it.  That is the first step in recovery.

    If you haven’t noticed, women already march into battle.

    Again, you can believe anything you want.  Facts are optional for you.  Carry on.

  11. Mar

    Quite frankly, we really don’t need Selective Service anymore. Drop it and save some money.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    There is a difference between volunteer service and draft/selective service.

    That is the part you are not comprehending.

    If we have a major war and a draft of young men is needed….I think it is disgusting to draft women.

    Women can volunteer if they want, but a draft? Any man advocating that, should turn in their man card.

  13. dad29

    K, you’ll note that LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEroy will not address the argument from reality-world.  Rather, he attempts to defeat your argument with some BS about ‘military service.’

    After denial of God and God’s nature, the mental disease just gets worse.

  14. jjf

    Come now, Dad29, saying”God says” isn’t really arguing, is it?

  15. Kevin Scheunemann


    Says the godless liberal…

  16. jjf

    Well, actually Owen and I agree here, so…  but hey, Kevin, go right ahead and take this opportunity to change the discussion to remind us how Godly you are, because that’s what Christ would want.

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    I don’t think Owen was advocating a draft of women, but indticating it is the the natural reasult of leftist feminist ideology infecting society.

    If Owen was advocating a draft of women, I disagree with him on that.

    If you are agreeing with Owen on something, I am perfectly fine with my disagreement here. However, I think you are misreading what Owen is saying.

  18. jjf

    I guess you’ll need to ask Owen.  I only read what he wrote.
