ANALYSIS – More trans lunacy. Men can become women by just ‘identifying’ as women, says the left, and Joe Biden, except when it comes to the draft. This is according to a chart provided by the U.S. Selective Service System.
The chart, linked to a recent tweet by the Selective Service, notes almost “all male U.S. citizens and male immigrants residing in the United States who are 18 through 25 years of age” are required to register, and ‘trans’ individuals “who are born male and have changed their gender to female” are explicitly included.
Apparently, it’s biology after all.
The stark contrast between Biden’s rhetoric and executive action on gender identity and this latest announcement and rules for a potential draft has caused anger and confusion.
As The Blaze reports:
Despite passing an executive order mandating that military members be treated according to their gender identity and not their biological sex, the Biden administration still requires biological men who identify as women to register for the military draft, while those who are “born female and have changed their gender to male” are off the hook.
This specific ruling was linked to a recent tweet from the Selective Service reminding parents that even “if your son is an only son and the last male in your family to carry the family name, he is still required to register with SSS.”
Before diving deeper into the accompanying chart, many parents expressed anger, and some suggested their sons would ‘identify’ as female to avoid registering.
However, Fox News reports that:
The policy pre-dates the Biden administration, but the White House expressed support for all people to be included in the draft last year.
“The administration supports section 513 and the registration requirement for all citizens, which further ensures a military selective system that is fair and just,” the White House said last year as Congress weighed adding women to a measure in the National Defense Authorization Act that would require them to register for the draft.
President Biden ultimately signed the National Defense Authorization Act last year without the provision including women.
Fox News further explained:
Selective Service System spokesperson Micheal Migliara told Fox News Digital later Tuesday that Congress would have to make changes that would authorize women to register with the agency.
“The Military Selective Service Act authorizes the registration of ‘male persons’, ages 18-25. In order for the Selective Service to be authorized to register women, Congress would have to pass legislation amending the current law,” Migliara said. “While there is currently no draft, registration with the Selective Service System is the most publicly visible program during peacetime and ensures operational readiness in a fair and equitable manner. If authorized by the President and Congress, our Agency would rapidly provide personnel to the Department of Defense, while at the same time providing an Alternative Service Program for Conscientious Objectors.”
What is a man? What is a woman? For the Selective Service – ‘It’s still biology, stupid.’ ALD
