US policy states that transgender women who were registered as males when they were born must register for the military draft with the Selective Service, while transgender men who were recorded as female when they were born don’t have to sign up for the draft.
The unchanged policy garnered attention on Friday when the Selective Service tweeted “parents, if your son is an only son and the last male in your family to carry the family name, he is still required to register with SSS”.
The Selective Service System (SSS) site states that almost “all male US citizens and male immigrants, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service”.
The site says that all biological males must sign up for the draft, which also applies to “US citizens or immigrants who are born male and have changed their gender to female”.
“Individuals who are born female and have changed their gender to male” don’t have to sign up, the site states.
The Biden administration announced its support for including all citizens in the draft last year.

Looks like Joe Biden has just officially confirmed what a woman is and what a woman isn't.
