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

    Yes and No.

    No, because this is a suicidal system for a society to have.
    Yes, because the folly of actually drafting women and sending them to war will hopefully break the back of the insane ideas that feminism is injecting into society.

    An issue apart from the draft that I would like to see happen is the formation of an Amazon Brigade. All the women who think that they are the equal to men get shifted into one unit and they fight together and don't imperil the lives of any men. This unit can then be compared against a mixed-gender force and against a male-only unit and we'll actually see how true it is that women are the equals of men.

    I was making a joke about Bob's thing about forklifts. No forklift and no BS "protector" complex about women? He'll never forgive that.

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

    I absolutely feel that women should have to meet selective service requirements, just like men, as a matter of principle. That said, in my experience, the vast majority of women in the military are absolutely worthless and take a disproportionate number of early advances in rank for all the work they do laying on their back.

    There are many extremely smart and hard working military females I have met, both officer and enlisted, but if it were up to me women would still be doing jobs that aren't forward deployed, like the nurses. Before I was in the military I was completely the other way on this, but then I saw what happens when a carrier goes on deployment and, for one reason or the other, half of all the females are gone within a month (more work/watch and less sleep for the males who remain! Thank God for equal pay!).

    The drop off is definitely less drastic among the officers, but since they don't do any of the work it's a moot point.

    The USA has a military manned by volunteers.

    No one has been drafted in the USA for quite a while.

    That's true but men still have to sign up for selective service. Women ought to have to do the same thing, even if the chances of being drafted are basically zero.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Update the rules so only one parent can be drafted except in extreme circumstances (like overwhelming space alien invasion or some ****).


    Edit: Of course that's probably what it would take to cause a draft again, so it might be moot.

If you fail to sign up you can face jail time, be fined, and is denied aid for college.
    It's a waste of money. I can't even imagine a time when we'd draft men, much less women. If we get in that situation, we could always initiate it. Otherwise, it's a waste of taxpayer money to maintain the information.
