When I turned 18, I didn't have to register for the draft. I didn't even know that people still registered for the draft.
Then Tall One turned 18 this year. Apparently Uncle Sam hunted him down (I think Tall One got a letter, though he didn't clarify how he was "hunted down") to get him to register.
First of all, we don't do the draft these days, and don't have plans to reinstate it, so why do people have to register?
Second of all, how come Tall One had to register but not me? Because I'm a girl! That's sexism that doesn't belong in this century, if you ask me.
Thirdly, Tall One was diagnosed ADD, and last time I checked the military doesn't accept people who are ADHD/ADD. So, why the heck did Tall One have to register???
I don't like the idea of drafting people into the military anyways, and these points just add to my irritation on the issue.
I love my country, but that doesn't mean I like everything that my government does.
