Should women be required to register for the draft?

Now that women can serve in all combat roles in the U.S. Military, should they also be required to register for the draft?

Ya, if woman are allowed in the military, they should have to register. But family’s with both parents eligible to be drafted should have at least one parent be able to stay home.

When feminists say they "want equality", that means men still do the asking out, pay for dates, mow the grass, fight the wars, and do the dirty "man jobs" around the house.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander, and in this day of gender equality, vice-versa.

Not being required to do is blatant sexual discrimination against men.

Should women be required to register for the draft?

If we are going to have a mandatory registry for the Draft, which we do, then it certainly should apply to all citizens--not just half

Yes. If it's good for us horrible oppressive males, then it's good for the angelic, equal females.

Men are pigs.

Women are equal to men.

Any feminists on here who want real gender equality should support the requirement for women to register for the draft. If they weren't required to do so, wouldn't that actually be institutional sexism?

If you're a nation with both genders already represented in the armed forces and you're going to have a process for a draft then it's only fair both genders be in the draft.

Diaper Boy you are saying there is only 2 genders ? I enjoy watching how totally confused you Progressives are from day to day !!!!!!!!!

No. Anyways, there will probably never be another draft because so many people sign up for the military anyway. Also, in the modern age, you don't need as many soldiers. Go to war with any country, and we have enough troops as it is to take care of the problem. Also, trying to bring it back, would be political suicide.

I think that woman want to be equal to men in the ways that benefit them, but not have to do all the hard things men do. What do you think?

Let me preface this by saying that I do not believe women should even be ALLOWED in the military. There are numerous reasons why, and I can explain if necessary.

As for the answer, as it stands, women are allowed to participate in the military, and have the right to vote, therefore they should be required to uphold the other side of responsibilities and defend their country if necessary.

And yes, I do believe that women should not have the right to vote if they do not want to be included in the draft. The right to vote was created so that those who want to aid in governmental decisions such as elections are those who are also able to be willing to go to war for their country. If they can not meet that basic need, then they should not be allowed to vote.
