Should they have to sign up with selective service like men have to at the age of 18? I believe so. Women want equal rights to men, so then they should be called upon like men if a draft should occur.

No doubt they should sign up for the draft is one should come about. They want to be equal so let them.

I am a full supporter of equal rights of men and women. However, it should be done across the board and only in areas that benefit them.

"I am a full supporter of equal rights of men and women. However, it should be done across the board and only in areas that benefit them. "

I am a full blown feminist in this manner. There's no reason to put women ahead of men in anything, they're our equals in the good and the bad.

As I always say when women complain that chivalry is dead: "Chivalry is dead because feminism killed it."

I thought the same way once. I stopped opening the door for my girl, made her take out the garbage and stopped changing the light bulbs but then I got tired of sleeping on the couch.

Ha ha ... no one said such thoughts had to be applied to a personal relationship!

Of course I open doors for everyone so that's not really male or female specific.

Where I work there are alot of "professional" women who won't so much as grumble a thanks when you hold the door open for them. They're possibly the rudist people I've ever met. Men hold doors and say thanks when doors are held for them. Women (in my experience) go out of their way not to hold doors and don't give so much as a side glance when doors are held for them.

Oh well ... can't worry about that. Still don't have an OF.

I'm with you. Next time you hold the door for a woman at work say "After you Sweetie". They love that.

Slap them on the rear end too?

I can't see anything going wrong with that.

I don't really care, I mean if they start drafting again most people who are drafted won't be very happy about it (men or women).
