If I don’t want to be in the military I face up to five years in jail and a fine of up to $250,000.
What do women face? Nothing, because we as a society think that females have no role in the military and as a result there is no draft for women.

…..You do know feminists were the ones trying to pass the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) in the 1970s, and that anti-feminist scumbags LIKE YOURSELF convinced conservatives that it might mean women will be drafted.
SO. Actually. You’re wrong. Just, you’re factually wrong. Not your opinion, sexist as it may be, but your facts. Here are the facts

^

When men fear the draft as much as women fear being murdered, raped, beaten, and denied healthcare, employment, pay, and housing, then maybe we can talk. The military draft ain’t fucking coming. There hasn’t been a draft in 50 fucking years, and the US has been involved in lord knows how many wars and occupations since then. But like 10 people were raped in the United States just in the time it took for me to type this post, and those are just the reported ones. In conclusion, shut your fucking mouth.
