Should women be forced to join the military draft? According to a federal judge in Texas, the answer is yes. U.S. District Judge Gray Miller ruled that  women should be forced to register for the draft if its ever needed. This is in line with the trend which seeks to minimize major differences between the sexes. But this latest move is likely to hit a brick wall if not biology itself. It should go without saying that the biology and the nature of females is quite different than that of males. Regarding strength, endurance, and  aggressiveness, the two sexes are vastly different. This doesn't mean there isn't a place for women in the military (they currently comprise 16 percent of enlistments). But forcing them to register for the draft is another thing altogether.
