Since there is no military draft and the draft is the only reason for the existence of the "Selective Service" with laws requiring ONLY men to register then at least this would be a good time to require ONLY women to register so at least feminist could then have a warm and fuzzy feeling that they actually contribrute something to society instead of just simply being a burden on the society.

Drill Instructors are not a breed of cat they are God and your mother.

Why did you not know the difference between registering with the Selective Service and dying or being disabled in a combat zone ??

Do you think that true equality might have a chance of being realized if ONLY women would fight the wars the next 200 or so years and let men live in comfort and security ??

Draft and selective service are two different things.  If you bothered to read my original posts on this topic, you would find that I think that everyone should do a tour of duty when they're 18, in the capacity that bests suits the individual.

I'm sorry that the only comfort you've gotten from an adult was at the hands of a DI.  At best, they're burnouts.  They are not God.  Lemmy is God.

Do you think that true equality might have a chance of being realized if ONLY women would fight the wars the next 200 or so years and let men live in comfort and security ??

[p]Did you check out Rakkasan's post with the Fred on Everything links?   You know what?  I believe you're just trolling.  You haven't bothered to read a damn thing on this thread.

Good for you !  You finally acknowledged that registration with the Selective Service and 'the draft' are two different things.

Can you come to terms that the 'draft is involuntary servitude' ??

MOST IMPORTANT !!  Can you come to terms with the underlying deep down thought that those that serve, professionally or involuntarily, may be doing so or did so in order that our government remains a democracy rather than a socialistic form of government where "everyone should do a tour of duty when they're 18, in the capacity that bests suits the individual" as you so graciously blundered your opinion.

Rak, I realize that I meant gay males as the distractees, not the distractors.  Like I said, I have nothing against homosexuality, whatever floats your boat I always say.  But I am most certainly hetero-, and I don't know how I would feel or react if some lesbian and I spent way too many hours in a fox hole.  And if I were male and had a gay man eyeing me, I'd DEFINITELY get uncomfortable.  JMO.......

[p]Finally?  Everyone past a certain age knows the difference between Selective Service and the Draft.

Can you come to terms that the 'draft is involuntary servitude' ??

[p]Nope.  Can't say that I can.  If someone doesn't want to be drafted they can move to Canada.

MOST IMPORTANT !! Can you come to terms with the underlying deep down thought that those that serve, professionally or involuntarily, may be doing so or did so in order that our government remains a democracy rather than a socialistic form of government where "everyone should do a tour of duty when they're 18, in the capacity that bests suits the individual" as you so graciously blundered your opinion.

[p]First of all, the military has my respect in regards to their commitment to not only our country, but innocent civilians around the world.  Our military kicks ass and takes names!  

[p]Brent asked a question about whether or not females should be made to register for selective service when they turn 18.  I said yes. That's my opinion, and I'm sticking to it.  I blundered?  How, pray tell?  Fair is fair and freedom isn't free.  This latest generation of selfish spoiled brats could use a little discipline, imo.  The school district where we live has a condition for graduation, stating that each student must volunteer at an approved location/activity for x amount of time in order to earn his/her HS diploma.  Socialism?

[p]I still say you didn't read the original post, or the replies....

SPG

Brent clearly questioned why women should not be drafted and never referenced registration with the Selection Service.

Please try to focus on the subject matter and respond accordingly.

Since you do not think the draft is involuntary servitude then I would love for you to elaborate on what the draft means to you.  Here's a clue.  When the draft was in place many males (not females) 'voluntarily enlisted' to avoid the draft.  

I did not ask if you respected the military or about military prepardness so I'll restate the obvious in hopes of a response :

MOST IMPORTANT !! Can you come to terms with the underlying deep down thought that those that serve, professionally or involuntarily, may be doing so or did so in order that our government remains a democracy rather than a socialistic form of government where "everyone should do a tour of duty when they're 18, in the capacity that bests suits the individual" as you so graciously blundered your opinion.

Back to Brent's original question.  Why should females not be forced to serve involuntary in armed combat ??  And my question.  Why shouldn't ONLY females be forced in this day ... an ALL female combat force.

Again I encourage you to please try to focus on the subject matter and respond accordingly.

Thanks !!

Sweetnsad ...

I couldn't agree more.

Just seeking a response focused on the subject matter.  

Do you have something to offer from Canada ??

Oh gee, let me focus on a non event while our very livelyhoods and national borders are about to be pissed away.

I don't think that the draft is an especially good thing, however if it was REINSTATED, then I wouldn't have a problem with females being called up.

Clue?  No sh*t Sherlock.  Of course only men were called up for the draft.  The smart ones enlisted to avoid becoming cannon fodder.

I stand by my personal opinion that if men are going to be called up, or made to register for selective service, then so should females.  There are many opportunities for a productive life serving this country in the military.  Especially since the giant sucking sound of jobs being lost is beginning again.

Davy, an all female combat force just might work.  You know, that never crossed my mind!  KILLLLLL!.  You still refuse to read the previous posts fom guys who know.  Females certainly do have a place in the military, but for optimal results,  send  big men  into combat:-)

Whoa !  The smart ones ...guys who know.  The enemy did not care if you were RA (regular Army) or US (Uncle Sam;drafted).  US56600771 (2nd call Mar 69) did not have to read any other posts.  Draftee in the Pentagon - yes (special skill set), DAV -yes, accepted gov't job - nope.
CP - of course.  Primary, loving, nuturing, displinarian parent - always.

Why don't you listen instead of shooting off your mouth with your various twisted theories, manipulations and falsehoods concerning subjects you've only read about or think you know about.  You've been watching too much TV.  

BTW...those burned-out DI's you spoke of were primarily war-torned combat veterans (US/RA) marking their short-timer calanders teaching us how to survive.  They were God's vehicles and mothers.  To them you would have been a cockroach and they would have gladly planted a shinny steel toed booth right in your mouth.  

Is a combat zone anyplace for a female ?  Absolutely not !   Should females be drafted for combat duty ?  Absolutely but only if males ARE NOT drafted or serving in the same combat zone.
