    House committee votes to require women to register for draft

    There Congress finally got around to it. Issue resolved. Can people stop bitching about how women aren't required to sign up for Selective Service now?

    To be clear, the House Armed Services Committee has approved bill language. The issue will likely be included in the House version of the NDAA, this isn't law yet ... a good step ... but not law yet.

    I just realized that after it was pointed out on a friend's FB page. I find it funny that Rep Hunter, who proposed it, was doing so simply to bring up discussion on the draft and trying to reverse the decision to open all MOSs to women. Apparently it backfired...

    True. Its a step in the right direction. BUT until (and unless) it gets signed into law, its somewhat overstep to say its 'resolved'..

    Horrible step. I hope I'm around (really hope I'm not) when the first 18 year old girl gets drafted. I have a feeling that the ratio of women to men in Canada would increase greatly.

    I'm certainly not for it. I think "feminism" got its name for a reason: it's designed to feminize men. Hence, why so many men are bitching about the draft not applying to women and are now applauding what's going on now. The draft applies to us because, as men, we're supposed to protect women and children. Now, we're eager abandon that and force women to fight in order to decrease the likelihood of a man having to step the fuck up and assume his responsibilities.

    Hopefully, unlike men in the military, civilian men are smart enough to know not to have unprotected sex with a woman that they know is deploying.

    But you are ok with men getting drafted and being sent overseas to fight and die...

    Bull. Just cause i want women to have to be held to the same requirements as men, does NOT mean i am 'abdicating my responsibilities'..
