Fanxyred known as Acrush, is a Chinese girl group active in South Korea. They debuted in 2017 and released their first single album, Activate, in 2019; the group is known for the androgynous appearance of its members. Fanxy Red's style is described as androgynous or tomboyish. In 2017, Dazed described the group as "cisgender girls, whose hair, make-up and clothes make them look uncannily like Korean boy bands – which don’t dress like girls, but don’t dress like boys.” In the past, Lu Keran stated "the company doesn’t allow her to discuss her own or her teammates’ sexual orientations," and has since corrected anyone calling her a boy, instead stating that she is a girl. All members are women. Sources: FanxyRed on Instagram TOV Entertainment's official website

Conscription in Israel

Conscription exists in Israel for all Israeli citizens over the age of 18 who are Jewish, Druze, or Circassian. Other exceptions are made on religious, psychological grounds; the normal length of compulsory service is two years and eight months for men, two years for women. In 2013, 26% of potential conscripts were exempt from military service: 13.5% for religious reasons, 4% for mental health reasons, 2% for physical health reasons, 3% due to criminal records, 3% due to residing abroad. The Israeli Defense Service Law regulates these exceptions. According to the Defense Service Law, the enlistment to the Israeli Defense Forces is mandatory for all Israeli citizens who have turned 18. In 1949, after the founding of the State of Israel, the Defense Service Law gave the IDF the authority to enlist any citizen. Draftees would be required to show up for the draft in accordance with the military's decision to enlist them. Under this law, the period of service for men was 30 months and for women 18 months The service for men has been reduced to 32 months since 2015.

The draft requirement applies to any citizen or permanent resident who has reached the age of 18, in accordance with the law, the individuals who are exempt from the draft are dismissed for various reasons, such as incapability, medical problems, military personnel needs, etc. Many of the soldiers who complete their mandatory military service are obligated to serve in a reserve unit in accordance with the military's needs. Economic constraints on the IDF have caused them to reconsider their structure and shift towards a more modern military. A shift towards a professional militia has caused the IDF to adopt more career-oriented attributes, thus becoming more selective than in prior years. Instead of focusing on “role expansion,” Israel, most its government, is focusing on “nation building.” One of the most extraordinary recent developments is a focus on inclusivity of gay and disabled citizens. The IDF determines a medical profile for each soldier; the highest medical profile draftees serve in the five infantry Brigades, Field/Combat Intelligence units, Combat engineers.

The second highest medical profiles are assigned to serve in the Armoured Corps, Military Police, Border Police, Aman. The lowest acceptable level of medical profiles are drafted into the combat support and combat service support Arms, such as the Adjutant Corps, Logistics Corps, the Ordnance Corps. Draftees with lower than acceptable profiles and draftees diagnosed as not suitable for military service are exempted from military obligations; the highest profile is 97. Although the conscription is compulsory, in practice a significant percentage of the population does not enlist for various reasons. Among other things, recent decades have seen a growing, but still rare, phenomenon of draft dodging from military service due to conscience or political reasons. Exemptions have come under attack on grounds of fairness, because of a perceived shortage of combat personnel. Yeshiva students who declare that "Torah study is their artistry" can delay their conscription as long as they continue their studies, under the so-called Tal Law.

In practice, many of them end up never serving at all. This is a controversial issue in Israel and key component of religious relations in Israel. Several attempts were made to change the practice, notably the establishment of the Tal committee in 1999, which led to the Tal Law, implemented in 2002, yet the Torato Umanuto exemption continued unchanged. The Tal Law was ruled unconstitutional in its current form, a replacement is needed before August 2012. Most beneficiaries of this exemption are Haredi Jews. Members of the Religious Zionist sector serve within a separate system called Hesder which combines advanced Talmudic studies with military service in the Israel Defense Forces; the IDF tends to make the military service easier for recruits at an older age and recruits with families, as well as athletes and musicians of note. From time to time a public debate emerges in Israel around the issue of exemption from military service in Israel. A basic law of Israel is the Israeli Defense Service Law.

It lists the regulations of mandated military service in Israel. Some regulation includes age, service requirements, time of service, etc. Chapter 5: Reserve Service: Going Abroad covers the rules and requirements for going on becoming a temporary reserve and going abroad. A person designated for defense service and a person of military age who belongs to the regular forces of the Israel Defense Forces shall not go abroad unless granted a permit from the Minister of Defense. A person of military age the continuance of whose regular service has been deferred for any reason shall not go abroad during the period of deferment save under a permit from the Minister of Defense. A permit under this section may be unconditional or subject to conditions, including a condition relating to the holder's stay abroad. Where any of the conditions of the permit is not fulfilled, the Minister of Defense may revoke the permit and may
