There's no misandry here. Pointing out that war is predominantly a male thing isn't misandry.


War is predominantly an authoritarian thing. This is probably the worst forum to make a sexist argument like that, because war is none of the male's thing here(AFAICT in relevance to libertarianism).  Grin

War is a synonym for "government genocide." So war is a government thing, not a male thing. It's true that more men have done genocide before than women, but that's only because men have had more such opportunities. Just like our gender had more opportunities to be great mathematicians, scientists, philosophers, and businessmen.

EDIT: as for the draft, I completely disagree with it. It is a form of slavery since you're forcing someone to work, and furthermore, kill people. It's genocide by way of forced labor.

I don't think it's just lack of opportunity.  I think men are naturally more aggressive, power hungry.  These qualities have both negative and positive things about them.  We wouldn't be as advanced without them.

Yes, the draft is slavery.
