Is it right or wrong that we are now drafting/conscripting women to fight in the next war. (Please explain your answer)?

I just can't imagine women going through the horrors of war, it would be cruel to put women in a situation/scenario like in the film Saving Private Ryan where soldiers are losing their limbs and body parts on battlefield. Then again women and feminists did ask for equality so its only fair to make them fight I suppose. Although just so you know I dont agree with war anyways but if it does come to it I think its only fair like I said. An girls if you dont know what wars like watch 5 min scene from Saving Private Ryan to have a rough idea what its like.

  • I'm just personally completely against the draft, men or women. Period end of story. However, if it was incredibly necessary, I'd say go for it, if men have to be drafted women should too.
    My biggest issue is if the US did it but other countries didn't. If women became Prisoners of War, that could be incredibly dangerous, as, well, men can't get pregnant if they are sexually assaulted while a POW. Especially if it was fighting a country that had not entirely positive views of women, that could be a really big issue. Also, if it was an entirely male army from an enemy country fighting a multi-sex army of the US, it has to be the question of would that put us at an advantage (are people less likely to shoot a women giving us a leg up or are less men putting us at a disadvantage?) However, if the women can be proven to be just as able as the men, then I don't see why not.

    • People probably aren't any less likely to shoot women.

      If they are, then it's solely because they want to use the women as sex slaves. Then kill them after.

      I stopped believing the "men are naturally inclined to protect women" bullshit when it was revealed that most men want women drafted.

    • @mistixs equal rights... equal treatment. You speak like a woman's life is more precious than a man's. You do know men are also raped? Not just women.

    • Actually yes a woman's life is more valuable evolutionary speaking.

      If you have 9 women and 1 man you can have 9 kids at a time.
      If you have 9 men and 1 woman you can only have 1 kid at a time.

      This is the source of "women and children first," etc. Women are more valuable to the repopulation of a society.

      And don't tell me we won't have to repopulate; with nuclear weapons it wouldn't surprise me.

      And women get pregnant after rape, men don't

  • We're not drafting or conscripting anyone currently - not men, or women. We haven't since Vietnam. You have to sign up and be registered, but joining the military is completely voluntary at this point. We have enough people participating.

    • Well they dont know what its like, women are always crying over the smallest things in todays society constantly asking for privileges because its hard for them. Look I just dont think women could withstand that much brutal violence, its bad enough for men never mind women. Am sorry but I just can't imagine women barbarically fighting to the death on a battlefield where its a massacre. This isn't the movies you know where women are kicking ass... a lot of that is to do with feminism and female empowerment.

  • lol, I just don't understand what people with your stance really expect women to do. I mean when it comes time for war do we just sit around waiting to be killed and raped. I know you live in this western culture bubble probably but there are wars going on in different places, where women are actually fighting just not to be turned into someone elses sex slave for the rest of their lives. We're very privileged for what we have here but if it came down to defending ourselves or someone we loved then we would have to be freaking stupid to just let shit happen to us simply because we have a pair of boobs.

    • Well men are also raped in army but no one speaks about that, especailly femininsts since they tend to focus on their own privileges. Its ok for men to be victimized in war whether its getting injured badly or raped but not of for women like men are nothing and have no value. Am sorry that's the risk soldiers all have in war and should be no different to women. Us men have to face also being captured and put in POW camps we are slaves to enemy and some were raped or some were badly abused. The way the military sorted these issues out were if there was a soldier badly injured (leg blown off) or someone getting raped they usually send them back home.

    • According to my Psych of Sexuality textbook from last year, 1% of men are raped in the military in comparson to 25% of women.

      And in the case of being captured, women are at greater risk than men due to lesser brute strength and thus lesser ability to protect oneself when their weapons are stripped from them, being forcibly impregnated (and, by the way, childbirth has comparable PTSD rates to war) and forced to give birth to the babies of the enemy. That benefits the enemy because they're able to make their army stronger by having the chance to produce more children.

  • Women shouldn't be drafted, sorrynotsorry. Groups of men performed better than the groups of women, this was proven.

    "All-male units were faster, more lethal, and able to evacuate casualties in less time than women. Also all-male squads performed better than mixed groups in 69% of the tasks evaluated. All-male squads, the study found, performed better than mixed gender units across the board. The males were more accurate hitting targets, faster at climbing over obstacles, and better the avoiding injuries."

    I don't know about you, but I'd rather have the more competent group defending the country I live in.

Modern warfare is not like was in the past. I would cite this video for further explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDNyU1TQUXg

    Say what you like about how men or women are, but anyone who goes to war these days is at risk for major psychological trauma. There's a reason so many homeless people are war vets. It will screw you up no matter what shape your genitals take.

    3. We've been lucky in the US that the war hadn't been at our doorstep in a long time. As the saying goes "War is Hell" ... The women throughout history who were being brutally raped by co querying soldiers, or having their villages burned, or being starved in a siege, or being tortured for info would probably have loved some martial training.

    • My idea of "equality" is being treated with the same respect. I wish nothing happened to those men either! It all makes me sick! But I can't stop war. I personally want to be a stay at home mom one day and I believe in the traditional way of things such as, a woman taking care of the house and kids, taking care and loving her husband, a man providing for his family, etc... But I know not everyone agrees with me, and I think everyone should have the CHOICE. If women WANT to go in the army then they should be able to if they don't they shouldn't be forced to, same goes for men. Nobody should be forced. Equality should be having the same opportunity and choice. And I believe in individuality, just because a few feminist do things, does not mean that the rest should be punished for those things. Same goes for people who say that ALL gays, ALL Christians, when they really mean a small group. You seem to hate women and think that all women have no respect for men. But that's wrong.

    • @mistixs

      What "studies" would claim only 3% of men don't meet combat standards? Seriously more than 3% of young men are obese, just to start. And even if women were really not capable of combat roles they should be drafted for non-combat roles and manufacturing. by the way with older men who immigrated the idea is that they were already drafted and received an education in their home country.

    • There is no draft in many countries. So if saving time isn't an excuse for excluding women then it shouldn't be for older men.

      Anyway, it's 3% of men currently in the military, my apologies for not being specific. So probably a higher number of men outside the military, but that means that the number of women incapable of combat roles is also higher than 86%.

  • It's right women have all the rights and responsibilities in society. If one of them is the draft so be it.

    I don't think there should be a draft and thankfully I live in a country where there isn't one. If there was I'd absolutely expect women to take part. In exactly the same way the men do. Discrimination in any way is wrong.

    I don't like wars and I don't like conflicts.
    Women were "participants" in world war 2. They did not actually fight them but they were occupied in industrial places and factories in workforce for war equipment such as the production of bullets for firearms.

    Men die or survive with permanent damage as a result of fighting wars.
    Women get widowed or the news of their fallen/wounded man and remain without them to survive on.
    But who can we blame on these events?
