According to the Selective Service System website, nearly “all male US citizens and male immigrants, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service.” The website states that all biological males must register for the draft, including “U.S. citizens or immigrants who are born male and have changed their gender to female.”
The website also notes that “Individuals who are born female and have changed their gender to male” do not have to register.
Hilariously, the policy came to light after the Selective Service posted an unrelated tweet that attracted some funny responses.
“Parents, if your son is an only son and the last male in your family to carry the family name, he is still required to register with SSS. Learn more about who needs to register at https://sss.gov/register/who-needs-to-register/.”
Many Twitter users pushed back on the Selective Service’s tweet, writing that their sons will simply identify as women to avoid the draft.
“My son’s a girl now so we good,” one user wrote.
“For the purpose of SSS my son will identify as a girl starting with his 18th birthday. Checkmate fascist,” another tweeted.
Thinking they had found a loophole it was quickly noted that transwomen are in fact men.
Biology doesn’t change with the application of make-up, a new name, costumes, drugs or surgery.
A man is a man is a man regardless.
