    House drops plans to make women register for draft

    http://www.airforcetimes.com/story/m...pped/84481376/


    So, the CONgress critters have decided that there was too much blowback and this wasn't a good time to follow the IDF model and implement the "Drafting of America's daughters" in the name of "Equality" thing.

    As everybody knows, this won't be the last we'll hear of it. Now that they've floated the idea and got a little movement going.... They'll come back to this poison well after the election.

    It's not following the IDF model. It's the fact the ONLY reason that women haven't been forced to register is due to the combat exclusion policy. Now that is gone there is no reason for them not to amend this law.

    Either get rid of it completely as it's not necessary to even have a draft or make everyone sign up.

    How about we just change the current rule to gender neutral language. Instead of men change it to read citizens. Like when they gave voting rights to robots in 2032.

    The Model of Effective Frequency states that the average person needs to hear new information at least 3 times before they're even able to remember it.

    Now I know we've been over this multiple times before .... But, Maybe the 3RD time's a charm...... Here goes nothin.....

    THERE WERE OTHER VALID REASONS....

    1. agreement by both civilian and military leadership that there was no military need to draft women and

    2. congressional concerns about the societal impact of the registration and possible induction of women.

    Rain.. If there's no military need to draft women, wouldn't that also thus mean there is no need to draft men? Ergo why have the Select service still exist?

    And 'concerns about societal impact', but is that NOT the same logic to extend to keeping on disallowing females in combat arms? If that 'impact is no longer there' cause we ARE now pusing to allow women Into those combat arms roles, then shouldn't that also mean that the impact is not there for 'them being drafted'?

    Yep. I completely get your whole, " You Want equality? OK, you're drafted!" viewpoint.

    But, If you changed the M/F ratio of the Army to 50/50 today, then it'd just be the men picking up the slack anyway. Think of all the problems we already have.

    Face it. Drafting teenage girls and putting them on the battlefield are just more rapes, pregnancies and mental problems waiting to happen. Surely, you can see that this will not end well?

    Life's not fair. The military is not the place for social engineering projects & there's no reason to be trying to cram square pegs into round holes, just so that the Man-Hating Rachael Madows of the world can declare yet another Victory over the rest of society.
