Could be true but I doubt it and could be razorback hogs from Arkansas. Go to the Master Chief of the Navy's Office in the Navy Annex and you will see Playboy Centerfold material.

@Lyzza

Are you concerned about the gender imbalance in draft registry? That is, as of yet, males are the only sex required to register.
Thanks from Jimmyb

The caliphate? The caliphate predates Pres. Obama (& the US, & the Europeans in the Americas) by a lot - it was set up after Muhammed the Prophet died, 632CE.

& as for stopping the modern caliphate, all we really have to do is find/invent a viable alternative to fossil fuels, especially oil/natgas, & license it out to the industrialized world. Without the income to prop up ISIS, the families of suicide bombers & etc., they'll all dry up & blow away - or go back into the mountain fastnesses & dream of the Crusades.

Back before the women's movement was co-opted by state forces, most feminist leaders wanted the draft and draft registration of men abolished...rather than whether or not women should be added to the draft rolls!

If this dormant thread really needs to be revived, I'll just say that "Women AND MEN in combat is a mistake!

@right to left

I would argue; Either (A) Nobody registers for the Draft (M or F) (B ) Everyone registers for the Draft (M & F)

One would think this issue should be amongst the very top of Feminists priority list(?)

Some things are obvious. Men are larger and stronger than women so yes. They can carry heavier loads. They can probably carry a 200 pound man out of harm's way, but can female mechanics in aircraft, for example, squeeze into smaller spaces? Lead patrols? Work as a gunner? Secure valuable intelligence by speaking to Afghan women who won't speak to men? Work undercover?

There are plenty of jobs in the military, including combat units: snipers, drive tanks, fire mortars, lead, strategize. Women can most certainly do well in those positions.
So Clara votes Women's lives dont' matter..

Sending them into combat to die is okay.

All males are required to register their name if there ever is a draft again--females are currently exempt.

No one sends their troops, of whatever persuasion, into combat to die.

As Patton is quoted:

I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor, dumb bastard die for his country.

Spoken by George C. Scott in the film Patton.

(My emphasis - from https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/George...ird_Army_(1944) - which says this is a misattribution. But it has a nice ring ...)
