We want to be equal to men. In fact we want to be even more equal than men.

While I don't mind the drafty it really should be reserved for defending against an attack/invasion.

So in that sense I understand what she's saying. No one should be drafted not everyone. Two ways to reach equality, end the draft for everyone or force everyone into the draft. She'd rather go the first route.

In sorts it is. The logic behind Vietnam was to stop the spread of communism before the US had to fight an even harder uphill battle. And the only way you can get rid of the draft is to include women into it. Look at alimony, the second some women had to start paying it, states started abolishing it.

That's actually the reason this bill was introduced - the author routinely introduced it to try and get the draft abolished. Except this time everyone applauded the measure of equality, to his complete and utter horror.

Kinda like how affirmative action in Sweden is starting to help Men so now they gotta get rid of it.

The draft wont end until citizens see young women coming home in body bags.

People dont give a fuck about men. When body bags come back from Iraq they think its a bit sad but that's their job. The sheer quantity coming back from Vietnam sparked a bit of outrage, but not enough to get rid of the draft.

People wont stop the draft until they see pretty young things dying for yet another pointless stupid war.

When that happens, the draft wont be used any more except in the most dire, national defence situation.

You're probably right. A picture of a female US soldier limply "holding" her gun, slumped up against a dirty concrete wall in some Arab stronghold, with a rifle sized hole in her head probably won't be allowed to be leaked though.

Just to point out, no one is currently being drafted, so that wouldn't be much of an argument against the draft.

Its a cop-out.

Women have had inordinate political power for a long time. They're the majority of voters, so some legal group could have asked to end the draft. I was looking at a list of feminist related groups a few nights ago, and no surprise, tons of womens legal groups at every law school.

This is the only way to end it.

I understand what she's saying, but if you want equality you have to take equality, the good and the bad. You can't take the good bits and leave the bad bits behind in the hope they'll improve without you, that's not equality.

True. They could draft women. They'd be useful (like you said - in cases of draft, most people are cannon fodder). But they won't. They can't afford to have women seen dying in their war.

They should have been working to help men then, just like how men are expected to help women when they are treated unfairly.

That's the hope though. All the silent agreement turns into actual opposition when it starts to hit home.

The Draft is not meant as punishment. Using the Draft means there is a dirty, dangerous job and the nation needs more people to do it than have volunteered.

In her defense, she meant that NO ONE should be drafted. As in, they should be working to remove men from the draft, not include women. I know this, because I spent 2 minutes reading her twitter. As a man who was in the military years ago, I agree with this. There should be no draft. It should be enlist or volunteer during war time. Who are politicians to TELL YOU that you must fight their war?

They want unequal rights, but call it equal. Selective hypocrites.
