They should have a referendum to force women to have a baby or pay a tax.

Did they also vote on whether to introduce it for women?

That's because they are a luxury item, leaves and dried grass can be gathered for free.

Moss is softer but that's taxed too.

The game designer whose book I wrote is actually a Swiss citizen through his father. Living overseas (which he has all his life) is a valid exemption from service, but in college he deferred graduation for a year in order to take a specific programming job back at the family home in Switzerland. They wanted him to stay longer, but he had to come back to the States after one year because his exemption would have expired and he would have had to do the mandatory service, which he was not philosophically cut out for.

So until that happens and the vote goes against that, it's not truly sexist, regardless of who is voting.
