"I think we should include Women in the Selective Service System!"
Do you think we should do away with the Selective Service System altogether?
I didn't write the article, I'm providing it for discussion and professional feedback!
Here's a litte snipet of the article:
The Selective Service system is an antiquated relic of a bygone era and should be eliminated for all Americans.
Secretary of Defense Ash Carter’s decision to open combat jobs to women caused a lot of controversy among the veterans community and the public at large. Whatever the merits of that decision, the controversy over it hadn’t even subsided before another one started. Now that women were going to be allowed into all direct combat roles, people started to call for them to be included in Selective Service registration.
That’s a seemingly logical next step. After all, if we accept the premise that men and women are both capable of filling any job in the military, then logically, both should be required to register for Selective Service.
But that’s not seeing the forest for the trees. The easier and better way to achieve gender equality in regard to Selective Service is not to expand it to include women. It’s to acknowledge reality and admit that the Selective Service system is an antiquated relic of a bygone era, put it out of its misery, and eliminate it for all Americans.
