Would-be draft evaders cannot simply pretend to identify a woman in order to evade their duties because biological males who identify as women are still required to register with the Selective Service System.
“Almost all male US citizens and male immigrants between the ages of 18 and 25 are required to register with the Selective Service,” they said Agency Remarks. “It is important to realize that even though a man is registered, he is not automatically drafted into the military. In a crisis requiring a draft request, men would be drafted in an order determined by a random lottery number and year of birth. Then they would be examined by the military for mental, physical and moral fitness before being deferred or exempted from military service or conscripted into the armed forces.”
Although there hasn’t been a draft in decades, Selective Service issued a tweet last week noting that young men are still required to register, even if they are the last man to bear their family name.
“Parents, if your son is an only son and the last man in your family to bear the family name, he still needs to register with SSS,” he said tweet written down.
The post drew a lot of attention on the social media platform.
In reply to the post, Jenna Ellis commented“What is a man?”
Someone else wrote“For the purposes of the SSS, my son will identify as a girl from his 18th birthday. Checkmate Fascist.”
But even in modern times, when liberals regularly propagate left-wing gender ideologies, it turns out that “male” in relation to the possibility of conscription in military service still means exactly what it always meant: a biological human being.
“Selective Service bases registration requirements on sex assigned at birth and not on gender identity or gender reassignment. Individuals who were born male and have changed their gender to female are still required to register. Individuals who were born female and changed their gender to male are not subject to registration,” the agency said Remarks.
“Until Congress changes that [Military Selective Service Act] or passes a separate law dealing with transgender people and gender identity, the Selective Service must follow Congress’s intent when requiring only males to register — the registration requirement is based on sex at birth,” the agency explains. “In the event of a reinstatement, according to the draft, male-born persons who have changed their gender to female may apply for exemption from military service if they receive an order to report for examination or enlistment.
