What i do find funny about discussions of females and military? Is the unspoken notion that 1000s of women WANT to be in frontline combat!!! Really? Not sure most women want to trudge through foreign lands being shot at!
I rrspect that men and women have different qualities. When i mean equality? I mean the acceptance that we are equal value humans. Not that we can all do exactly the same physical tasks.
TannieT, You have completely missed the whole point of this thread. It is NOT about opportunities in the military for women. If a woman volunteers for service, the sky is the limit.
This thread is all about whether women can be, should be, forced to register for the military draft in exactly the same way as men.
If you read my 1st post you will see that at age 18 all males MUST, by law, register for the draft.
