Women could be forced to sign up to US military draft by 2018

Women might be forced to sign up with the US military draft by 1 January 2018 if government approves a new proposal from the armed services committee, moving one step closer to ensuring both genders would be subject to serve during war.

“Because the Department of Defense has lifted the ban on women serving in ground combat units, the committee believes there is no further justification in limiting the duty to register under the Military Selective Service Act to men,” the bill summary read.

“Furthermore, each uniformed chief of the services testified to their personal support of including women in the requirement to register for selective service.”

  • Didn’t they get rid of the draft in 1973 because it was unpopular?

      Yeah, we only have registration.
      You have 30-days from your 18th birthday to register, or you get nasty-grams from the Feds and you are also suddenly ineligible for almost all government programs too, so the compliance rate is almost 100%.

  • Now they can share showers with men on the front lines of battle.
    Careful what you ask for, you just might get it!!

    Actually I can fully see feminists pushing for this. The odds of the U.S. ever having another draft are pretty much zero. People today would never stand for it, so it would successfully take away one of the clear-cut arguments people have when trying to point out how women have more/better rights than men. Most of the others are statistical analysis of how laws are enforced and not so clearly written right in the law.

      No Draft and No War—-
      That is why Ladies demand access for equality in the Military.

      Yeah, it’s going to be just like this. One big adolescent wet dream. Showering together, sleeping together – all those ta ta’s. With lots of bug squishing:


      On a more serious note, what’s good for the goose… lots of non-combat admin positions one could fill with draftees. And if the SHTF at the level where you are using women then conscription will probably be nothing more than a formality anyway.

    Did you notice how ugly the Muslims are?

  • BillyHW

    Modern women are a joke.

      They certainly don’t live in the real world.

      I thought that Muslim women where just muslim men who washed out of terrorist school.

  • Hard Little Machine

    It’s an empty gesture since most, nearly all women will run out to get pregnant or get a doctor’s note saying they’re disabled on the day they’re ever drafted.

      I figure if society can force men to fight in combat situations, it can force women to have depo provera shots.

    we should have the draft in Canada too, women and men over 18, and extra service
    for women in their 50,s 60,s 70,s so they can continue to be strong and independent
    and kick the shit out of any little pricks who try to bully them or perpetuate male dominated rape culture

  • Clausewitz

    First you say you’ll draft women. Then when you only go back to the old ways and draft men only, well then everyone draws a sigh of relief thinking they dodged a bullet, literally. In the end they reinstated the draft, which is what they wanted to do all along.
