The New American: “Once Secretary of Defense Ash Carter issued an order in December for the armed forces to open all combat jobs to women, it was inevitable that the question of whether women should be forced to register like young men would be thrown into the lap of Congress.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1981 that it was constitutional for Congress to exclude women in draft registration. Their reasoning at the time was that since women were excluded from combat roles, it followed that registration did not need to include women.
The United States ended the military draft in 1973, but Congress reimplemented registration of men at age 18 at the urging of President Jimmy Carter.”
Opinion: Memo to Editor: I know this has nothing to do with this blog – but I couldn’t resist.
If the ruling is that women are exempted from registration, then Sec Def Carter also has to take into consideration men that are transitioning or men that identify as women.
On the other hand, if the ruling is that women must register, then men that already transitioned to women have to register as women, and women who only identify as men but are still women have to register as ?
But the real confusion is what happens when men and women start identifying as animals – bringing to mind one of Vason’s videos from the other day:
