Should women be required to register for the Selective Service System ?
Males in the US must register on their 18th birthday, (even though there is no active draft), for the Selective Service System. If they don't, they can't get student loans, and risk all kinds of other Federally related consequences, (employment etc). Today some generals told congress women should have the same requirement.

What think ye ?

Better them than me.

I don't have a problem with the idea. Seems fair to me.

I think people should be registered at birth and then if and when needed get their physicals/mentals to determine if or which they are acceptable for battle or non-coms jobs. People can serve even if they are not capable of fighting. If they are mentally or physically disabled they are excused.

RE: Should women be required to register for the Selective Service System ?
While I have always thought it was discriminatory not to require this, if I had been in congress today, I think i would have taken the opportunity to tell the generals : "Ok boys, just as soon as it's proven we get equal pay for equal work, and everyone is safe from sexual assault in the military, you hurry your desk asses back here, and we'll talk about it". But that's just me. Angel

But yeah, I do think it's fair. There are lots of jobs to do ... not necessarily just combat if that's not your capability.

I tend to agree with that.

The mandatory draft is bullshit. If I got drafted, I'd "convert" to some pansy-ass religion like Jainism, and then file for conscientious objection on religious grounds.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

I'd move to Canada or something. I doubt it would come to that of course.
