For those who don't know, the White Feather Order was a group of feminists in WW who were assigned to pin white feathers on men who weren't enlisted in order to socially shame them (I guess the white feather refers to chicken).

It was a strong social message that translates to "Go men, go to war, fight and die for us"

So women are the preferred sex?

Like in China?

I'm a man, and I'm not "disposable."

What's disposable is a dirty Pampers diaper.

Men are still the disposable gender.

We are a product of evolution. We have twice as many female ancestors than male ones. If a woman dies fewer babies are born if a man dies someone else can get her pregnant.

I've known plenty of women who lament that they are "disposable."

The key, really, is to make yourself "not disposable."

I’m just giving credit to the idiot who started it,a man ,since I noticed you did not.The women were idiots for following an idiot.
My son is NOT disposable.

I think the double tragedy of war is that we lose some of our best and bravest. If natural selection has any relationship to it it's probably somewhat inverse.

What ever happened to humans beings not being disposable?
The whole segregation was based on sex anyway, which I obviously think is ridiculous. A human being should be able to decide its own path, regardless of which genitals it has.
On the flipside, there were women during wartime that wanted to fight, and found any opportunity they could to covertly defend their countries (women of the French resistance come to mind). But they were not allowed to fight alongside their men, because they were women, and obviously not "strong" enough.
Segregation based on sex is just a shitty distinction for everyone involved.
