Would-be draft dodgers cannot simply pretend to identify a woman in order to duck their duties, because biological men who identify as women are still required to register with the Selective Service System.

"Almost all male US citizens and male immigrants, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service," the agency notes. "It's important to know that even though he is registered, a man will not automatically be inducted into the military. In a crisis requiring a draft, men would be called in a sequence determined by random lottery number and year of birth. Then, they would be examined for mental, physical, and moral fitness by the military before being deferred or exempted from military service or inducted into the Armed Forces."
