All-male military draft unconstitutional

The inevitable consequence of the drive to put women in the military is on the verge of arriving:
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.
Regardless of what the needs of the U.S. military may be now, we know there will be military drafts in the future because there will be war in the future. And now, thanks to the feminists, young women who don't want to serve in the military will be drafted and forced to risk their lives in combat.

Feminism has always been focused on destroying Christian Western civilization. And turning young women who should be wives and mothers into sterile worker bees and amazons is an important part of that goal.

A society that sends its women to go die in foreign lands or to 'protect' society is one with a very bright future and is not at all insane.

To what degree do nukes make a real war impossible?

Draft our Daughters is meme magic.

I taught a freshman level writing class for a few years. The patriotism I remember from the eighties is gone. Those kids felt as much loyalty to America as the government does to them. That is, none at all. All those strong young women were pretty taken aback at the idea of the draft.

Times have changed though. What seemed a noble calling in my youth has become either foolishness or accessory after the fact in US imperialism.

@ Tars Tarkusz, I pray we never get an answer to your question - it's probably Famine, Plague, and Death, since War will already be mounted and present. Note that strategic bombing ("the bomber will always get through") failed to win WWII in either the European or Pacific theaters. I expect any future participants to have global reach, and this is not exclusive to IRBMs or ICMBs.

@9

On what basis does any court rule that the time has passed for debate?

The fact that combat arms have been opened to women. The debate has been held, the results are established, and this is the natural consequence of that outcome. The purpose of the draft is to obtain personnel for, among other things, combat arms duty. Now that women are officially eligible for combat arms duty, they should be eligible for the draft.

More importantly, on what basis does a District Court think it can overrule a SCOTUS precedent?

Stare decisis means you don't LIGHTLY overturn an existing precedent, and that if you are doing so, it's because you've applied the law as presently written and come to an opposing conclusion.

Again, the situation has changed drastically. Existing precedent was based on an entirely different set of conditions.

@2 I am not as well versed in war as some, but I am seeing a near future where, at the very least, ICBMs 'mutual destruction' nuclear warfare will become next to impossible as more and more countries get more and more advanced missile systems. Sooner or later we are not only going to become a world where war is more common, (nevermind possible), but with less threat of planet wide extinction. At worst, people who are neighbours (looking at you, India, China and Pakistan) may launch short-range nukes at their neighbours and annihilate border positions, which means we may live in a world where nuke use in conventional warfare is more likely, but also simultaneously less devastating as all the important cities and infrastructure will be covered, making ground capture more neccessary. Maybe those with nuclear submarines will try to sneaky-breeki nuke their enemies but then its a game of detection and deterrence.

I am honestly ok with this future because it actually negates the worst aspects of nuclear warfare by means of practicality, while also makes it impossible for one country to dominate everyone because of the old 'I has da nooks' rule. We're still going to get regional hedgemons but we will never again get a situation like America ruling the world again.

On topic with drafting, I have been in favour of drafting because my country is small and frankly, we need every man we have to at least know how to fight and wield a gun, so I am increasingly in favour of national service and tying it to gun ownership (as a way of softly introducing gun ownership into my culture) so only those who go through the psych evals of the military and training in responsibility and use can purchase guns (while also retaining their service rifle). Ireland probably wont fend off an Invasion int he future if we dont invest in our navy but we can damn well make sure occupying the country is an absolute nightmare.

Blogger Ken Prescott February 24, 2019 12:31 PM  

@2

To what degree do nukes make a real war impossible?

Essentially, it means that any great power war will, of necessity, have very limited aims--probably so limited that it would be far less costly and risky to negotiate an acceptable resolution to the proximate disagreement than to fight a war over it.

If the war aims rise to the level of existential threat to one or both participants, then it's going to go nuclear. And the rule about nukes, because of the fragility of both political and military command and control systems, is brutally simple: "If one flies, they all fly."

We spent about 40 years learning those rules. Unfortunately, the guys who learned those rules--the pre-boomer generations--handed off power to the boomers right at "the end of history," and they figured they could ignore those hard-won lessons.

Anyway, the existence of the draft is bizarre. There are a few draconian American laws that are out of sight enough that they survive.

I can agree with that totally. Of course, there is not much left of Christian Western Civilization at this point.

Another worry is; what if they put women in charge of the nuclear retaliatory lunch decisions? I am in doubt that very many men have the cool logic and fortitude to make those decisions. I doubt any women do.

Robert A. Heinlein in one of his stories had the idea that only those who served in the military could be full citizens and vote. I liked that idea. Still do.

The real idea I like is that of returning to the ideas of the founders who designed the present government. Go back to the original design and thus cure much of the decay and wrong headed decisions.

Only men vote. Only those men who own property. Perhaps Bob H's idea of only men who served in the military.

If so, the judge is playing with fire, because in America's demoralized state, this might actually come to pass, and we'll just start losing one war after another.

As a former USMC Infantry NCO, I just cringe at the abject thoughtlessness behind the decision to open ground combat arms to females.

As experiments go, this one is completely unnecessary. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman explains why in On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill War and Society ...

"The presence of women and children can inhibit aggression in combat, but only if the women and children are not threatened. If they are present, if they are threatened, and if the combatant accepts responsibility for them, then the psychology of battle changes from one of carefully constrained ceremonial combat among males to the unconstrained ferocity of an animal who is defending it's den.

Thus the presence of woman and children can also increase violence on the battle field. The Israelis have consistently refused to put women in combat since their experiences in 1948. I have been told by several Israeli officers that this is because in 1948 they experienced RECURRING INSTANCES OF UNCONTROLLED VIOLENCE among male Israeli soldiers who had their female combatants killed or injured in combat, and because the Arabs were extremely reluctant to surrender to women." (pp. 175)

Martin van Creveld also wrestles with the role of women in warfare in The Transformation of War (pp. 179-187) ...

"A field dominated by women by definition does not allow men to realize themselves as men .... there exists a critical point -- say, 15 percent -- beyond which a growing number of women present will cause men to desert to a field, any field, in favor of greener pastures (p. 182)

No need to worry yourself. Male or female makes no difference whatsoever. Jimmy Carter completely destroyed compulsory military service, years after the draft was ended. How? He gave blanket presidential amnesty to those who left the country to avoid the draft, those who refused to take the oath, and those who DESERTED from active military service. What does that mean? It means that another Leftist Liberal president will do the same thing in the future. So if you do not want to die (or get seriously injured) or you are opposed to the war for any reason or you had rather do something else during the war years you can escape to a foreign country until the war is over and the next Leftist Liberal president is elected. This offer is even good for those who desert active military service during wartime. (Ask George Washington or Abraham Lincoln what they thought of that one.)

So you see, there can never be another military draft, nor are they in danger of doing any sort of national service in VISTA or the Peace Corps, unless they actually want to....at the time. Nobody needs to make plans to follow the well-worn path to Canada ever again.

Women in combat would place their male compatriots in grave harm's way. That is because the men would have to pick up the slack for all the dangerous and demanding stuff that the women would be incapable of in the real life situation of the battlefield. Besides I can't imagine how this government would have the moral authority to institute a draft. Everyone would know that it would be to fight for the (((NeoCons))).

The word out of Afghanistan from the attending troops is that in combat shootouts the female soldiers tend to be close to spectators, more inclined to observe than to act. And the men are inclined to help the females out with this or that, which isn't the worst, but effectively the women does not add another member to the combat team.

Of course this is also in a war where most of the time the troops in the field have heavy duty backup, and so are not commonly faced with the worst sort of situations. Provided, of course, you are not one of those who comes back in a body bag.

"young women who don't want to serve in the military will be drafted and forced to risk their lives in combat."

Doubtful. If there is ever an order compelling women to register, then there will be a whole slew of accompanying legislation announcing certain exemptions that, while they won't mention "women" or "females" specifically, will in practice only be able to be exercised by them. Kind of like how Title IX says only that "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation..." but is somehow only exercised to enforce female participation at the expense of males'.

If that doesn't work for the girls, then they can always fall back on the old reliable tactic they used to use to get out of deployments back when I was in: get pregnant.

Blogger Unknownsailor February 24, 2019 4:57 PM  

@77

My experience was similar to yours, except I had the added benefit of having one of them working in my shop getting preggo and not telling the command until the very last working day before we were set to fly out to our carrier and deploy for 9 months.

This was the 2nd time this particular person did that, and come to find out years later that said person had managed to be promoted to PO1.

No, her billet was not filled while on deployment, and being a body short for that deployment really sucked because my squadron did split ops, half the jets on the ship and the other half at Al Asad AB.

I did 8 deployments in total, over 20 years, and every one of them had women in the crew, and every deployment saw at least 20 women flown off the ship due to pregnancies. I won't even get into all the Article 15 proceedings that resulted from men and women getting caught doing what comes naturally when said are confined to limited space.

Unfortunately, manning is such that the Navy will never go back to men only crews, there just isn't enough male bodies for that. Crews are running short handed as it is even with females.

If the Empire gets into a war, and if the Empire's conventional military is losing, it seems to me that makes the nuclear option more tempting. That is certainly a chilling thought.

Many vets here have testified that women and being sort handed in general have weakened the whole of the military. Vets in my own family report the same.

I wonder if there is any way that the Empire would ever withdraw from overseas and adopt a defensive posture. Say protect the southern border and so forth?

Commenting about the specific effects of this case on the military is secondary. The bigger issue is why the damned courts are allowed to have such power over every aspect of our lives, when our government is supposed to be a balance between the judicial, executive, and legislative. In fact there is no such balance.

Leftists would never have been able to prevail in this country if voting preferences by the people had been allowed to stand. However, over the decades the leftist long game expropriated the justice system and overturned it all in their favor. So now we have a leftist kritarchy. There is absolutely nothing the courts are not allowed, as long as they couch it in the proper penumbras and emanations. This latest ruling is simply another click of the ratchet of judicial usurpation.

Trump is an idiot for not recognizing any of this. Every time the courts have tried to stop his agenda, he should have told them to go to hell and dared them to do something about it. Justice is not only dead in this country, it's rotting, stinking, and moldering.

At least when I had to register for the draft some decades ago, I was told that those found to be unfit for military service would nonetheless be put to work in government service in the event of a draft.

In other words, being a low-IQ landwhale does not free you from the grip of Uncle Sam's War Machine. There are a lot of government floors that need mopping.

I read romance review sites. There are specialty review sites for dark erotica. Everyone normal finds 50Shades of Grey to be BDSM. These sites think it's kindergarten. There are tiny, little focused groups within romance. Like, there will be 1,000 readers of a specific genre: it can be a clean genre- "mail order western brides, clean romance, pre- Civil War." There are genres specific to single eras of British history, down to fifty year ranges.

The dark erotica that aims at military women is military women in torture situations with multiple men, for some national security issue or another. The writers are specialized. The readers are all former military. It has trigger warnings all over it, pretty much the same way that albums put warning labels on as advertisements.

My family history has a full range of female military veterans. None of their children are normal, none of them have had a normal childhood. I know 'NAXALT' and that there are female veterans on here with very cherished families and well-raised children. It is, however, not at all within my experience in any way, shape or form. I know I can't bring up personal stuff as data, when it's anecdotal, but I think that there's a range of BDSM erotica that only appeals to military women is sort of an early warning sign of things that could go very wrong.

The ONLY country I know of that sent all-female units into direct combat in the front lines EVER in history was the Soviet Union in WWII. Their experience was nothing less than a disaster. They were perfectly capable of filling holes in the front lines, digging trenches and creating the appearance of Russian soldiers and a manned front. But once the Germans found out that a section of the front was held by all-female infantry, they struck with unusual ferocity. Regular male Soviet formations were always fire-brigade to rescue them and they never arrived in time. The losses were frightful and the loss of battlefield initiative was difficult to recover by the rescuing units. It was a complete failure due to purely ideological considerations.

There are some modern Russian war movies that you can watch on YouTube that show what a bad idea it really was.

Some of the Soviet women snipers were excellent and racked up a lot of kills. Very true.

There were also some squadrons of Soviet all-female air crews, which formed the 588th Night Bomber Regiment...which later earned Guards designation.

Basically, they flew the "flying bathtub" as it was called on strictly night bombing missions. It was called the bathtub because it was very heavily armored for protection. The Germans knew them as the "Night Witches" and yes, they had significant losses, even flying at night. The Germans called them Night Witches because their tactical method was to cut their engine and glide over the target very low and quietly, so they sounded like witches ridding broomsticks in the night.

They were very young and brave, some were even teenagers. Some of their pilots flew over 800 missions by the end of the war and 23 were awarded Hero of the Soviet Union.

The German aircraft found them difficult to shoot down because their top speed was less than the stall speed of the common German fighter aircraft. In fact, the aircraft they flew were originally used for training and crop dusting.

And, no, I don't think ebook romance novels are formulaic or scripted. The ones published by mainstream publishers have rubrics- guidelines for the type of book the editor wishes to publish. Since it is a gamble of several thousand dollars to print each book, and space on store shelves, it's fair to have a rubric. It's like " I want clothes that fit body-conscious (close fit) or standard fit, or oversize."

Self-published romances do not have publisher guidelines. They have a stunning variety of characters. As for plots, would you read a murder mystery if there wasn't a dead body or a solution? Or would you call a haiku a sonnet? I happen to like some books, and I do like reviews. Would you want your legal drama on at 7pm to have twerking secretaries showing off their underwear?

"That's a tight schedule already; they can't afford to let them spend a few years as military grunts."

I'm not going to say that all women in the military are loosey goosies, sluts, and whores who get passed around, but I've never met a one who'd been in for more than about two years that I wouldn't believe it of immediately just by looking at her and cross referencing that with how I've heard them speak and the stories that go around.

Even if she was normal before hand, normal girls get pried open in those settings. Even the other girls come running with psychological wedges in that environment, so fast that I can only think that misery loves company. The only ones not getting pried open are the ones with serious preexisting issues that would prevent that possibility.

If daddy isn't aware of that, he's either not paying attention, or the virtue signal opportunity looks more succulent. If it's via draft, there's no faux-virtue to be had, so you can guess how he's going to feel about that.

"My niece is currently in the Guard"

Guard's probably less of a pressure cooker scenario. Other than that I don't know.

"The OOD was named Lt. j.g. Sarah Coppock, and the Tactical Action Officer was named Lt. Natalie Combs, they weren't speaking to each other!"

Yep. Gouged out her own eyeballs to spite her face. Typical female behavior. The local social standing is more important than knowing what's going on outside while in command of thousands of tons of vessel in the midst of other vessels in the tens of thousands of tons.

That's interesting. You really know your stuff. Thank-you. Do you have any examples of these kind of rubrics? If they express the features that sell, one would be better to study the rubrics then reinvent the wheel.

I wasn't trying to be deliberately condescending. I just have noticed some young women of questionable writing skill who nonetheless sell very well, and I respect that. They know what their readers want, and their readers reward them. It would be really interesting to slip in very subtle red-pills and realism alongside the fantastical elements.

I was reading Colleen Hoover to try and understand why these things sell like hot-cakes. As I said - I think it's because the female psychology represented in the genre is the 'victim-heroine' polarity.

So in this Hoover there is a love triangle between our conventional female protagonist, a former autistic homeless boy now rich chef called 'Atlas' she kept as a pet and an uber-rich pick up artist neuro-surgeon called 'Ryle'. Atlas climbed in her window near death, and she bathed him and turns out he's David Gandy. Ryle is a wife-beater. Our protagonist enjoys the crescendos and pianissimos this entails. Our protagonist opens a goth themed flower-shop that is without explanation a massive commercial success. She has multiple occasions where she suffers domestic abuse by Ryle, until eventually she is rescued by Atlas - who was her pet. She literally kept him as a pet. Hiding him in her room. Keeping him warm on winter nights etc. Feeding him oats. This is why women want refugees. It gives them the sensation of being a goddess, because they are simultaneously victim and heroine - it is romantic for them. In real life, Atlas rapes Lily, murders her, burns her house down. But I understand the ennobling. It is the maternal instinct.

Lily gets impregnated by the wife-beater in spectacular fashion, but Beta homeless boy whose virginity she rape-extracted after giving him a bath white knights to the rescue. There is a rousing joust for Lily's affections. Their child as Lily says, is a perfect combination of Ryle's dashing temperament and vulpine good looks, and Atlas's kind and gentle sentiments. And that gentleman, is why women will tell you the kid that isn't yours, is yours lol.

Lily and Atlas, name the child Dory. Not, the author assures us, anything related to 'Finding Nemo'. Dory is a name, okay?

The book in question was one of the top selling in all genres on Goodread in 2016. Women in giving their reviews say that book was a revelatory experience akin to Saul on the Road to Damascus.

But that is fine. Colleen Hoover is a successful author, and she knows what she is doing. The tone is due to brevity - not dismissiveness.

I think I can write to that rubric. I love these pulsating kitsch names.

That's what I meant by 'simultaneous victim and heroine'. Lily is always the victim and the heroine. Victim of Atlas's need and looks, heroine for meeting both. Victim of Ryle's violence, heroine for trying to change a charming genius.

Who do you read. What do you prefer? You are quite right about the confines of the genre.

As a fan of urban fantasy, I end up reading a certain amount of mislabeled paranormal romance. Like traditional romance, the primary conflict is Woman Vs. Herself, in which she must learn to get out of her own way and let a real man meet her needs (or, alternatively, learn to suppress her conscience and use various men for different ends).

As a romance not-fan, my favorite kind is when there is also an interesting conflict, and there's no reason why not. The fantasy blend has immense innate potential for mysteries, political dramas, and all-out wars.

My second-most disliked trope is where the heroine has an amazing superpower -- the Strong Independent Woman Who Don't Need No Man, on magical steroids -- oh, but she also faints all over the place and is constantly being carried and tended and waking up in strange beds, because of course that's what happens when she overuses it.

My most disliked trope is, of course, alpha fux/beta bux. Which sometimes they make explicitly literal, using werewolves as an excuse for indulging their instincts.

(118) The publishing companies provide the guidelines. They publish them on their websites, or you can query by mail. There used to be big "author's market" books that (I think? maybe? no clue) published the guidelines. A larger house will have several lines with different markets and different rubrics. They build the guidelines on authors they want, sometimes.

There are books in the writing section at the bookstore with general guidelines. The fun way to learn quickly is this book: https://www.amazon.com/Boyfriend-School-Sarah-Birds-Quartet-ebook/dp/B073QJDCXK/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=sarah+bird&qid=1551128612&s=books&sr=1-7

It's a conventional novel by Sarah Bird. A journalist at a free paper in Austin gets assigned to cover a romance writer's convention. She's, how you say, not wrong? in her estimates of the situation, and the braininess of the writers.

Past that, why on earth would you lecture? Women's colleges had professors who succeeded in warping a generation of editors. They lost their careers trying to push, for instance, bisexual, polyamorous urologists as heroines. Now, romance readers, quite justly, did not buy or recommend these books- flyover hardheads, if you will- so these editors migrated to more upscale, more liberal print lines: and you can see the insanity going on, now. IOW: why lecture women who already agree with you?

Nora Roberts, for not lecturing, but being productive, inspirational and informative, sells a book every fifteen seconds or so- right on the same amount as Britney Spears sells a perfume. And while you might have an urge to sneer: Britney makes excellent perfumes aimed at feminine young women who work in cubicles, and therefore need light perfumes with a small footprint of odor: they don't reach the cubicle next door. Which is considered horrifying to fans of 80s big statement perfumes- except, now men wear 80's women's perfumes, and we had at least a decade where it was fashionable to wear extremely mild, watery fragrances and look like death warmed over. The sweet, shy, extremely feminine perfumes are a sign of life and hope.

As it is, independents write their own rubrics. There are sites asking what their limits are. Each writer comes up with her own rubric and elevator pitch, and then writes. Because some of these women are so productive, they functionally have created their own lines within their brand. It's impressive, is an understatement. And, really, all the basics really are under question: amounts of conflict, escalation of physicality, what chapters go in- do they advance the plot? was the usual test- now, they can have a chapter just because they like it. Or the characters: I've seen fat chicks, tattoos, short guys, autistic boys, deaf, PTSD military types, all get their chance to star in a book. It's not the Ken and Barbie show all the time, in indie land.

I mean, one writer I like had a book with no conflict between the two main characters, which is the usual driver. It shouldn't work, but the characters were likeable, the rest of the book had conflict and the sex scenes were smoking hot. So, overall win, but not conventionally publishable. It was sort of like Ryan's Toy Review: on one hand, kids watch hours of these videos. On the other, there's no conflict, everyone is polite and respectful- and on the third hand- if you're a kid today, low to no conflict is just the right speed. Like, Boomers will notice the kid plays with lots of toys. Young kids will notice that the parents play toys with Ryan for hours. That's what my kid liked: he saw a kid learn to play board games, and then he'd play them with the family. He finds Scooby Doo stressful and disorienting.

The extremely high stress, limited goods, high expenditure, world built by the Boomers is gone. This is the cutting edge of the abundance for microgroups via tech, acted out.

You're making the mistake of assuming leftists will abide by the rules they create. They won't. As Steve Sailer has pointed out, the average leftist, being a government employee or client, has a lot more free time to think up loopholes to their own rules than the average American does.

Also, leftists firmly believe, whether it's true or not, that past drafts hit poor minorities the hardest. If there's ever another draft and they have anything to do with it, they will use every trick they've learned from suborning industries and rigging elections to make sure it falls hardest on white boys from red states.

The prospect of Draft Our Daughters is great rhetoric for waking up the masses to the reality of equalitarianism. But don't get caught up in the fantasy that they would ever march a higher ratio of 80-IQ women off to war just because the rules they created said that was fair.
