What would Julia think?

A major justification of male only selective service registration is that combat positions are only open to males.  With the recent women in combat change, I can see a judge requiring women to register.  If that happens, the Democrats are not going to be popular among all those self-indulgent girls who supported them because they wanted to be Julias.

  1. Uh-oh. The National Organization for Women (NOW) has always opposed women registering for the draft although they support women in combat.

    No, I can’t explain those contradictory positions by NOW.

  2. When politicians pay tribute to members of the U.S. armed forces, they almost always refer to our “brave men and women,” a recognition of the fact that women now constitute 14.5 percent of the nation’s 1.4 million active-duty military personnel. But even though women are permitted to serve, the nature of their service is limited because Defense Department regulations exclude them from most combat positions, a policy that primarily affects the Army and Marine Corps.

  3. “Julia” might not cotton to spending a year operating out of a dusty hooch along the Ho Chi Minh Trail and then coming home to a lifetime of nightmares and the inability to explain to anyone else what happened to you during that year.
