Cartoon #158 Push-ups?

158

I wonder: in the past military service was compulsory for men.
Did transmen in the past ever get a letter, or a call for compulsory attendance to join the armed forces, once they required legal male status?

Edit: Read B’s response in the comments, apparently transmen did have to deal with compulsory conscription!

    I did! Must have been in or around 1995. I didn’t go to the military exam(ination) though. I’ve requested VUmc to write a letter in my favour. If I had been a bio-boy I would have been a ‘weigeraar’.

      Really?? We had no idea!
      Such a strange world we live in. Where the army is homophobic but loves to have men of all sorts enrolled.
