During the Tuesday, June 14 session of Congress, an expansive military bill was approved that, amongst other matters, starting Jan. 1, 2018, women from the ages of 18 and 26 will be required to register with Selective Service, the same as their male counterparts.

I'm sure a bunch of sexually frustrated guys will be in favour of this like "Bitches wanna be treated equal and all". But where do we draw the line and admit there are differences between males and females and besides what tumblerinas and other idiots who sexually identifies as something other than human has to say about it, it's okay. It's okay that men and women are different. I too, am in favour of equality but I think its wrong to draft females in the army simply because for the most part, men are stronger physically. The requirements for women even have to be lowered because of this, all just to have a politically correct gender balance. Why does there need to be a forced gender balance in the first place? Can't people understand that because men and women are different, they typically like different things and would rather work somewhere else?

On the subject of lowered requirements and women in the battlefield, she is only going to slow down her male counterparts. This isn't a movie, this girl isn't Milla Jovovich, she is only there because they had to lower the standards for her, thus impacting the overall effectiveness of the squad. It's the same story in the Police Force, whenever things get bad, the females back out while the men go forward. Is this an instinctual reaction, or some silly social construct that has been made up (and I guess for animals for the most part they must also of made up this social construct).

Or maybe it all has to do with how no matter what you do these days, its considered wrong in the west. It seems people have gotten so comfortable with their boring lives they complain about everything. Cute and feminine? How dare you be so delicate and weak, you should be a strong single mother like I am. Strong, tough, stubborn? Pfft what a douche, you should buy a checkered shirt like me and become a door mat to protect our fellow m'ladies. You think just because I'm a girl I like romantic comedies? That's sexist! (no bitch, it really isn't. They're directed at women).

Will the line ever be drawn? What's your thoughts?

Don't know, I haven't been here for a while. This was also passed a week ago so stop exaggerating. I am also talking beyond the draft too.

Who said that this was lowering any requirements for front line jobs? I think most people assumed that people who aren't capable of the work would primarily get assigned to non-combat work.

People don't want to accept that men and women are different at a basic level.

I'm pretty sure that if you looked at it strongly, there are even bigger problems with women on the frontlines than even a 'physical' handicap. Reading a book by this chap called Tom Kratman, I think, as part of a series of books about a chap who does a lot of war stuff on another world. Military science fiction. In this particular book, the character Carrera, forms a 'tercio' of a 'legion' out of women. In order to get them through, they have to adjust everything about how men are trained in order to give an equal amount of strain to the women, and they still had to give them many accommodations in order for them to be even vaguely effective. How true to life any of it is isn't something I can judge, but it does touch on a lot of things, I guess.

The line will never be drawn as long as people bend over backwards to please the weak. As long as the weak use their weakness as a crutch.

I assume that would be the case...



I don't really think the draft has much use at this point anyway.

Op makes some good points.

Its true, they want equal rights then they should have to fight, however, i wouldn't want females who were unable to carry me to saftey if i were injured in battle around me if my life depended on it, if i were in battle.

At the end of the day the'/re not physically equal to men. And they could cause distraction to male soldiers also, etc.

It's dangerous grounds really.

This question would be better phrased as "Is the center of the table--- the edge of the table?"
