Despite passing an executive order mandating that military members be treated according to their gender identity and not their biological sex, the Biden administration still requires biological men who identify as women to register for the military draft, while those who are "born female and have changed their gender to male" are off the hook.
The Selective Service tweeted a reminder recently telling parents that even "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."
The tweet elicited a range of angry and confused reactions, with many parents suggesting that their sons would identify as women to avoid the draft.
However, according to a
chart provided by the Selective Service System, almost "all male U.S. citizens and male immigrants residing in the United States who are 18 through 25 years of age" are required to register, and individuals "who are born male and have changed their gender to female" are expressly included.
On "The News & Why It Matters," BlazeTV host Sara Gonzales and guests Alex Stein and Chad Prather wondered when the Biden administration remembered that there's actually a biological difference between men and women.
