101. "Pet group" huh?
Look, I think the issue of the draft is one of the last places I'd be looking to push the issue of equality.

I apologize if I've been abrupt, but your posts kind of had the ring of "Oh, boy, those women wanting equality are going to get theirs now!"

The issue of women and equality goes far beyond being anyone's "Pet group". I'm no one's pet group. I hardly think it is unreasonable for women to say, when faced with draft, "Um, how about treating us a little more equally, huh?" Certainly sounds reasonable to me. Not hypocritical in the least.
