    Just get rid of it all together.
    I saw this after my earlier response and I agree.

    Agreed! And since some people actually think fetuses are persons, let's sign them up too!

    360 men and 360 women had sex onboard?

    Re: Should Women have to sign up for Selective Services.

    Damn right women should sign up. My family has a long history of military service and if my eyesight hadn't disqualified me, I would have gone to West Point. I was PISSED that I couldn't get a medical waiver that (according to my congressman who had nominated me) a male would likely have gotten. I wanted to serve, and have had plenty of female friends who have since.

    But if my only child - a male - were drafted, I would be suing the government for sex discrimination because my next door neighbor's daughter didn't have to worry about being shipped out.

    I think we are far from the need of a draft, but if we did, it should apply to every goddamn adult in this country, not just young men. You don't need to be male, hell you could be in a wheelchair and still pilot a drone.

    There should be no exceptions whatsoever. Let the Congresscritters that vote for a draft have to let all their children take the exact same chances with it as everyone else. We would certainly see how necessary they thought it was then.
    Truth is like a diamond. No one owns the whole thing, though it's the same light that shines through all facets. The more we can step back and see other people's facets, the more beauty and truth we can appreciate.

    Nothing here?

    This is again, your personally-focused data attempting to indicate women are at fault. However a more unbiased perspective sees that both men and women on the ships had sex and that many of them didnt use or improperly used contraception. That all applies to both sexes. However only women can get pregnant from that act....seems pretty obvious but the rest seemed to have to be spelled out, so I wasnt sure....

    (Of course, this if we agree with your assumption they were all transferred because of pregnancy, which was not stated.)

    Eliminate (as in, kill all members of) all military forces in the world, and you would have another war somewhere within a year.

    Military training should be mandatory for both sexes. Military service should be mandatory for neither. Under any circumstance.
