This is completely illogical.
There are nearly 3.5 billion women in the world, and even at the most conservative of estimates, we could reasonably assume that at least 2 billion of
them are capable of bearing children.
Why on earth would a woman's biological capability to have children have any relevance in a disaster that may only involve a few hundred or thousand
Considering the fact that if 10 women survived from a disaster, they could only bear 10 children for the next 9 months ( excluding multiple births ),
yet if 10 men survived, then they could create 1,000s of children in the same time period.
If we're still using an antiquated and outmoded idea of group survival to guide our actions, then it makes much more sense to let the men off
