I was in the post office the other day and casually picked up a brochure about the selective service. I noticed that only young men are required to register for the draft. Not women, just men. This is blatant government-supported institutionalized gender bias. In the event of a declared war and subsequent draft, only men are required to lay their lives on the line. Women can do so by choice, and have proven themselves capable of serving, but men have no choice. They must serve or face prison time. It is time to change this clear gender bias. Either include women in the selective service or abolish it completely.
