A federal judge in Texas has ruled that our all-male military draft registration is unconstitutional
You have to wonder if an American government that would frog-march its young women to the front lines is an American government worth obeying. Well, maybe you have to wonder it; I damn sure don’t.
I have been warning this was coming for years. Bush appointee btw. They are going to draft your daughters for their forever wars. https://t.co/vhxQedkzS4

UPDATE: A friend writes:
”Girls, let’s do a refresher course: If you’re going to play a sport (including wrestling) you’ll have to do it against people with a Y chromosome and a penis, and you’ll also have to share bathrooms with those people, and you’ll be drafted into the armed forces to fight the forever wars caused and led almost exclusively by those same people — so when are you going to thank us for rescuing you from the evils of patriarchy?”
I have given up on any illusions that I understand the hive mind of this country, but
- After the appeal, if this decision stands, I think Congress will require women to register for the draft rather than abolishing the draft.
- I will be very surprised registering women for the draft is the straw that breaks many camels’ backs in the U.S. We’ve been pretty supine about women in any roll in the all-volunteer military.
- We’ve also been supine about our (not their; we elect the bastards) forever wars.
- Our supineness is a mark of decadence.
