4. I don't support it


I won't beleaguer the reasons why I am against it. I have no desire to be labeled a 'sexist', a 'misogynist' or a part of the 'patriarchy'. It is obviously a done deal though the consequences have yet to be determined.

What would make me support this?

1) All women aged 18 to 25 must now sign up for Selective Service.

2) All PFT requirements and entry requirements for combat arms must be gender neutral and NOT gender fair as they currently are in the military as a whole. Gender fair will diminish the combat effectiveness of those units.

Will either of these occur? Not likely. So this is not 'fair', and it is not 'equal'. It is gender politics and really just about advancement for a small percentage of females in the officer corp. It is just the same old same old.
