That statement implies that people not subject to or required to register for Selective Service (that is, females) have nothing worth living for. As a man you might find this an acceptable conclusion, but females will probably raise the occasional objection. <sneer> As I pointed out earlier, the cruel and violent practice of mutilating the male genitalia indicates a deep-seated (although perhaps subliminal) societal aversion to men and masculinity, and especially a fear and hatred of male sexuality. Of course, in a heterosexually normed culture, officially sanctioned violence toward one sex more than toward the other, meets with very little opposition. Nevertheless, careful observers can detect the anti-male sexism inherent in female-oriented society at large (with the exception of a very few -- and tainted -- pro-male enclaves). --J. R.
