    Sorry, but that's just plain wrong - in practice and in law.

    I'm not aware of any laws that require people of a certain race to register with the government and keep apprised of address changes - although they legally "discriminate based on gender" by requiring men to do this under selective service.

    If you look into equal protection law, you'll see differences in how it's applied to race as opposed to gender. See for example rational basis review vs. strict scrutiny.

    Gender discrimination is allowable if it serves a "legitimate interest" - racial discrimination must show "compelling government interest," be "narrowly tailored" and be the "least restrictive means" of achieving said interest.

    So if he wasn't a conservative what was he? Liberal or moderate? Doesn't that prove not all liberals/moderates hate the military?

    Just because discrimination happens currently (ala the military) doesn't mean it's *right*. Hence the disagreement and move for change.
