After all those years of DADT this should be interesting.
Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., has introduced a proposal that would require biological women who identify as men to register with Selective Service in case the U.S. ever has another military draft.
Burchett proposed an amendment to the annual bill that authorizes the Department of Defense’s spending and policy priorities for the next fiscal year that would change the requirements to register for Selective Service by defining “male person” and “male citizen of the United States” to include a “transgender person who identifies as male.”
Unless lawmakers amend the Military Selective Service Act or pass a separate law addressing gender identity, Selective Service “must follow the intent of Congress when it required only males to register — the registration requirement is based on gender at birth,” according to the website.
“If they want to be treated like men, then they need to do what other men do and register for the Selective Service and get called up like everybody else,” Burchett told Military.com. “This group of people is more protected than any other group, and it’s not right.”
The U.S. has not had a draft for military service since 1973 but requires all males over the age of 18 to register for selective service.
He doesn't seem to realize that many would register, as there is no draft, and it would have the govt not following "sex defined at birth", weakening transphobes' case. https://t.co/p6iP8BjY5Y— Michelangelo Signorile (@MSignorile) July 13, 2023
