He's saying that (apparently) there are feminists who do not want women to be forced into the military, and that that is wrong because if they really wanted to be equal with men they should have to take on the same responsibilities.
But I'm ambivalent on the draft. Unless there's a WWIII no one is getting drafted. We already have a huge army and we have a huge reserves force. So really it makes no difference to me whether my name could come up on the draft. There is already (in the U.S.) a system set in place after/during one of the WWs for women to be drafted, it was just never put into action. And I wouldn't mind fighting to serve my country in that I wouldn't enjoy it but if I got called up for draft I would answer because it would be my duty.
But that statistic is wrong. I would argue it's not even most feminists want that. Most women maybe but not all women are feminists. And as I stated before it's a moot point. No one is getting drafted right now.
Dmitri Pendragon: Elytra: Wait, it's actually referring to the oldest post on the Underground? (I never did chase that down in fact…)

Leilani Sunblade: Rose: Welcome to Whitehall/the new Underground! Glad to see you found your way here. As Elytra said, the riddle's pointing towards the old site and, specifically, a scavenger-hunt type game that WTB and CH set up when they first released the book

Leilani Sunblade: Sadly, the game is over, but we still have fun here.
