So I was over at Kenyon the other day (local college, pretty liberal). I struck up a conversation with a girl that I know is pretty feminist. Now, being the way I am, I'll argue something just to argue (6 years of mock trial ****s you up lol).

So we're arguing about equality etc (note that I'm TOTALLY for equal rights) and I'm sitting there and I was just like, "Ok, if you want to be my equal, should you, nay, WOULD you, sign up for the draft when you were 18, just as I have to do? "

I don't think she knew what to say. That concept is pretty scary - you're giving the country the ability to put your life on pause and throw you into a battle with a gun whenever they may choose.

So pit, I ask you, what are YOUR feelings on this?

vvv BEFORE CUSSING ME OUT IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT, READ THIS vvv

*Note: Believe me, this is not to start sex arguments etc, just wondering how people feel about it. This is not necessarily something I believe in, either.

EDIT: Please guys, this is no place to argue if the draft is wrong/right, and don't bring up iraq.

Exactly. I support the soldiers fighting the wars, however (especially with the war in Iraq) I do not support the war itself. It really shouldn't be fought, and therefore there really shouldn't ever be a draft to sign up for.

It's sexist not to make them sign up

I always have this arguement with one of my friends. I treat her just like everyone, but she says that I don't. I think that if she wants equal rights and ****, she can't use the fact that she's a girl for every little problem. She's one of a kind though, women are generally not like that. She complains about everything.

No, because women cannot be infantry and cannot be placed in combat situations, given that there are some women officers that can be

Yes, but in the current environment, men are being discriminated against by being forced to sign up. To rectify that, it should be made optional or women should be forced to sign up.

This is one of the reasons the Equal Right Amendment didn't pass in the 60's... Women don't want to be drafted, but they want every other bit of equality as men.

I agree with a post a few places above mine, no one should have to register for the draft, but if men are forced into it then women should be too.

There is much more to the military than infantry. They don't have to be put in combat roles, there is many other positions for them to fill.

There should never have to be a draft. But without it the allies might have lost WW2.

The draft should be absolute last case scenario if there are no troops to fight or not enough to protect the people of a country.

There's no point for any war, and I don't think anyone should have to sign up.

whats wrong with being sexy?

No, because then I'll have to go to war, and that doesn't sound like very much fun.

Anyway, all of my female frriends and I are weak as hell and have dreadful co-ordination. If we fought for our country, it would lose.

Seriously, I'd much rather just stay home and cook.


Do you like your freedom? Maybe you should just move to Saudi Arabia.

exactly.

It's like saying, if I have to risk my life for something against my will, shouldn't a girl have to also? NO! Because neither of you should have to.

I think they should but if there are children then one parent should be left behind.
