When young men fail to register after turning 18, they are subjected to all manner of punishments.
Registration is important to a man’s future because Congress, three-fourths of the nation’s state legislatures, and scores of county and city jurisdictions have conditioned eligibility for several government programs and benefits upon a man being in compliance with the federal law — registration with the Selective Service System. These include student loans and grants, security clearances, government jobs, job training, driver’s licenses and identification cards in most states, and U.S. citizenship for immigrant men.See here.
Women are still exempt from registration. They do not face the punishments men face for failing to register. Yet for essentially 8 years, Obama did nothing to bring about equality. His party controlled Congress for the first two years of his administration.
In contrast, Obama skirted the law to insure "equality" on campus when his administration promulgated the infamous "Dear Colleague" letter--its real purpose was to make it easier to punish college men for sexual assault claims, actual guilt or innocence be damned.
Obama talked big about a lot of things. He only acted big with respect to those things that appeased his victim group base. Selective Service registration isn't one of those things.
