    Should Women have to sign up for Selective Services.

    With more and more push to for women to do combat roles in the military should women have to sign up for selective services. For those that don't know Selective Services what male Americans have to sign up for when they turn 18 so they can be drafted if a draft is ever called up again. If you fail to sign up you can face jail time, be fined, and is denied aid for college.

    Women should be equal to men in the light of society....in every possible way.

    While I don't think men should either but if you are going to have it I think both genders should.

    What if both father and mother are drafted?

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

    If men are legally obligated to do something once they become an adult, there is literally no reason why women should not be similarly obligated.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I think our society is deeply in error where it tries to treat men and woman as interchangeable, and to deny the essential, fundamental differences between them.

    The idea of women being subject to the same obligation as men with regard to military service, and the idea of women serving in combat, is surely one of the most blatant areas in which this error can be seen.

    It is the natural role and duty of men to protect women, and to fight violently, where necessary, to do so. This is programmed into us by instinct. Similarly, wherever else the use of violence is called for, this falls under the natural role and duty of men, and not of women. To hold that women should bear the same obligation as men in this regard, is to deny the basic natural differences between men and women.

    In a practical sense, if you put men and women in a situation where they are fighting side by side against a common enemy, it is going to be the natural instinct of every real man who is of any value as a man, to protect the women around him at the expense of the cause for which he is supposed to be fighting. Aside form the obvious reduction in effectiveness as a military force, one has to consider the implications of training men and women for this situation, to override their natural instincts, when they are later returned to civilian society. What can be the impact, in a civilian society, of men who have been trained to override their natural instinct to protect women? What of women who have been trained to engage in violence outside of their inherent nature? Neither of these is going to be good for the society into which these former soldiers are returned.


    I would very much prefer that women not be in the military at all, and where they are in the military, that they be kept as far as possible from actual combat.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    No. We have never needed then to do so before, and we don't need it now.

    My OP was just about this subject manner in the board sense not the small details if such a thing happen. Pretty sure that would be rules in place to make something like that didn't happen.

    If women are equal to men then they should be treated equal in every regard and that includes being drafted.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    In middle of a fire fight, I protect my Marines regradless as of Gender. I see them as Marines and not as male or female during that moment.
