    Females are granted female privilege by not being subject to the draft. They want equal rights? So do I. Draft the females.

    That wouldn't make much sense.

    With a draft you're just throwing out a wide net hoping to get as many usable combat troops as possible, since generally females are physically weaker/slower than men you'd just be producing an inferior pool of recruits and reducing the quality of your people in boots.
