TOO LATE, SISTER, YOU ASKED FOR IT, YOU GOT IT: If equality means sending my daughters to war, I want no part of it. “In the event of a draft, sending women off to war does not present an equal opportunity to women by nature of the fact that women are physically different from men. As much as we may work to try to level the playing field between men and women, the physical differences between us as created by nature make us inherently unequal and cannot be universally overcome.”
Wait, when people used that as a reason to keep women out of combat, it was sexist, antediluvian stereotyping. But now that we’re talking about drafting women it’s a big deal? Sorry, honey. If we’re going to have a draft, it needs to be equal. If we’re going to go back to embracing the idea of inherent differences between the sexes, well, then, we need to make a lot more changes. . . .
