Selective Service and Transgender People (WARNING: May trigger ed)

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:33 pm

Males still have to register for the hypothetical draft, even if they "identify" as females.

However this must be couched in appropriately diplomatic language. :lmao:

https://transequality.org/issues/resour ... der-people
People who were assigned male at birth are required to register with the Selective Service within thirty days of their eighteenth birthday. This includes those who may have transitioned before or since then. The Selective Service uses Social Security and other databases to determine who they believe was assigned male at birth. As of now, it is unclear whether transgender people are eligible for military service, but you are required to register nonetheless, and this is necessary to gain access to certain government benefits. According to the Selective Service website, "In the event of a resumption of the draft, individuals born male who have changed their gender to female can file a claim for an exemption from military service if they receive an order to report for examination or induction."

Though serious technically they would be ineligible for the draft.

Pitfalls of insisting on going by birth gender.
You wind up with odd results either way.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
