A new ruling by a federal judge in Texas could mean that women could be drafted into military service in a time of war.

It comes at a time when women have been screaming to be treated equal to men and have insisted that there are no genders.

Or it could mean an end to the Selective Service System that forces men to register for the draft at the age of 18, USA Today reported.

The case was brought by The National Coalition Of Men who said that the law was sexist and discriminatory.

“The male-only registration requirement of the Military Selective Service Act, 50 U.S.C. § 3802(a), violates the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” U.S. District Judge Gray H. Miller said in his decision.

“While historical restrictions on women in the military may have justified past discrimination, men and women are now ‘similarly situated for purposes of a draft or registration for a draft,” he said.

“If there ever was a time to discuss ‘the place of women in the Armed Services,’ that time has passed,” he said.

“Women are now allowed in combat, so this decision is long overdue,” Marc Angelucci, attorney for NCFM, said.

Do you agree with the decision?

“After decades of sex discrimination against men in the Selective Service, the courts have finally found it unconstitutional to force only men to register,” he said.

“Either they need to get rid of the draft registration, or they need to require women to do the same thing that men do,” Angelucci said.

“Since women will be required to register with the Selective Service,” he said, “they should face the same repercussions as men for any noncompliance.”
