Will Women Now be Forced to Register for the Draft?

Someone sent my sister this a couple of days ago.

I also thought the following Onion clip put it into words. (skip the ad--foul language)

I'm sure we will see a court chlkenge

to registering for the selective service, because of the equal rights clause. Sorry ladies, but you too will be denied everything Goverment from school loans to ? if you don't register. Oh and that doesn't mean you have to accept those Goverment programs.

Welcome to the good ol' boys club, you now have the possibility of getting your rear end shot off for some unconstitutional war somewhere just like us men.

Welcome, welcome to fantasy island.

forced to register for the draft?

people aren't forced into the draft
the selective service paperwork does not have to be sent
back in(this is what gives them your name to go to war
but it is not forced upon people
don't want to go to war? then do not send that paper
work back in

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Has Hillary Clinton's campaign begun?

Can a woman be considered a serious candidate for U.S. president—commander in chief—unless women are required to register with Selective Service, can be drafted into the military and serve in the infantry/combat?
That's a question Hillary will be required to answer should she make another run for the White House.

First, I am against the draft...

First, I am against the draft, I still have my draft card from Viet Nam. But if there is going to be a draft and we all have equal rights, then we all have equal responsibilities to our country. Drafting women should clearly be a part of equal rights and responsibilities for everyone. I do not have a problem with women in combat as long as they meet the training standards and requirements of male solders. If they do no qualify , they do not qualify, it is that simple. Lowering standards for inclusion is an unproductive weakness in civilian life but it is life threatening for combat soldiers. One positive unintended consequence of drafting women is that our government might be less likely to go to war. If their daughter and granddaughters were being sent into war to die then they might have second thoughts and find a diplomatic or a trade solution with other countries.

Except the decision makers

Except the decision makers get exemptions for their progeny and can manipulate assignments for their benefit.

I am not a

Military worshipper, as I believe the wars we're in now are completely bogus acts of U.S. thuggery, lies and aggression. If they came to conscript our boys and girls for this? - no way!

If it was a legitimate war in my eyes, such as China cold-cocked us, or Russia invaded us- yes I would gladly fight, and would be proud of my boy for defending our country too. But I'm not going to allow my country to use my boy in America's wars for NWO.

Accd to the 14th amendment women MUST be

The equal protection clause really doesn't give any wiggle room here. Women must be eligible. This was already the case but them being allowed in combat brings new light to the matter.

Of course the draft itself is unconstitutional by the prior amendment which outlaws slavery.

Twarn't women in the July, 1863 military draft riots!

Twarn't severe like twas the July, 1863 military draft riots!

NY City Severed: How the Draft Riots Tore New Your City Apart, July, 1863. 3 minute dramatization. The draft sparked horrific riots in Northern cities. Particularly, New York City Irishmen violently opposed draft conscription into the Hell of War! Riots red glare!

July 1863. As the Civil War dragged into its third year, the Lincoln Administration was faced with a severe problem. Casualties were mounting, and it became clear that the government needed more troops. A draft was instituted. Congress passed a law implementing a draft in the spring of 1863. It was the first conscription act in the United States, and it was not popular... All men from 20 to 45 years of age to register

I Loved Your Sermon

I loved your sermon praying for victory in war. Maybe you need to write another one asking for women to be up to the challenge of being soldiers.

Next, we'll need to remove the age restrictions, although the main thing, I think, is to send Congress into the field (along with their children and parents).

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Against all Drafts

I'm a huge believer in Men are men and women are women, Viva la deference
The goal of this world order is for all between the ages of 16 and 65 owe time for the good of the many. It falls under "Community Service" for which we will all HAVE to "volunteer" by signing your name In the small print states you will do this or that in your community UNLESS we are at war in which case all between 16 and 45 will be in armed forces, man. woman and child. The elderly will be baby sitters.
How do I feel about it? If our freedom is at risk, I would do whatever I could to help. If a 'just' war, you need no draft, people would volunteer. That's REALLY volunteer.
As far as drafting period? No way!
As far as drafting my son? No way !
As far as drafting my daughter? No way in hell !
I'm sure there are women out there who could take on a man physically in battle, but few.
Just as I'm sure there are young girls out there who THINK they are equal to men physically but aren't.
What, pray tell, would the troops be fighting FOR? Freedom? Hardly, that's being taken away domestically. To protect your home? Crap, for many that's been repossessed. To protect your mother, wife, children? Nope, they will be out there in harms way too!

One time

I read a book where people were debating whether feminism discriminates against men. One of the guy's points was that only men are eligible for the draft. The counter-argument was something about more women wanting to be able to sign up for combat duty. It seemed like both authors were pro-drafting everybody. At no point did anyone argue for getting rid of the draft entirely.

Isn't it infuriating when you're reading/watching a debate and both of the people are wrong?

Yay, the feminists win.

Ps, loved the onion clip.

When you have a minute... Ya know, because there is so much testosterone on this site so it would be nice to hear from another female.

What are your thoughts on this? Does it frustrate you that some females think this kind of stuff is a "step in the right direction?"

Also, I kind of don't mind them lifting the ban on women on the front lines because if that is what a girl wants to do, I think she should be able to, how do you feel about that? It's the drafting I have a problem with.

im still pissed they are letting gays in now

Faking gay was my plan to get out if there ever was a draft.

Ha

Maybe you can fake transvestite instead? I do not know if they are accepted as part of the umbrella of gay?

I would be completely useless on any battlefield. I mean 100% absolutely completely useless. They can draft away, but I promise no results.

It goes back to freedom of choice. We can choose

to do what we want, but we cannot choose the outcome. I found this illustration on another site...

"If I place before you water or an extremely toxic liquid, libertarianism says that you have a free will and can drink either or neither liquid. But when you’ve made your decision, you have no say in the consequence. The LAWS of nature dictate the reaction. Try as you may, you cannot decide your fate if you choose to drink the poison. And try as you might not to, at some point, you’re gonna have to pee if you drink the water. And if you don’t drink either, well you’ll get dehydrated. The law prescribes the outcome."

We won't have a strong military if we allow women in, it's just the fact of the matter. Also, it puts someone else's life in danger--so it's really not right.

As for my feelings on feminism, you can read my past post here. Also look for my comment on the post.

Thanks for asking. If I didn't give you a satisfactory answer let me know--I will try to do better. :)

No, it was a great answer

I hear ya. It's freedom. If I want to march off to war... I will (which I would never do, I'm not a fighter). I don't think anyone should be drafted, but I really don't think females should be drafted. Reverse sexism? Maybe... I'm going to read your other post now.

It does bother me

More people killing for the government is progress? More likely than not we will have to pay for their abortions too when they get captured and raped. I do not like it.

Hey wait...

Hey wait, I remember Ronald Reagan running on the idea that as soon as he became president he would eliminate draft registration along with the Dept of Energy, and the Dept of Education.

Do you mean that he lied to us?
