Depends on my age. In my family I don't get a seat because I'm female. I'd get the seat because we have younger children who may not make it on
their own, and my DH would believe that was the right thing to do. He'd also want it to be me because he knows that there are lots of people who
would try to undo this decision and he would believe that it was up to him to make sure that they didn't win.
Were I under the impression that some of these guys on this thread were on the same boat with my children, and I didn't feel like I could deal with
them when they went snaky I'd insist my DH go. (mind you, he might refuse. He's stronger, but I'm way meaner and far more vicious.)
It isn't because I'm female. It is because I'm Mom.
If I were older, or my children were almost adults, the equation would change. I'd probably do the same and make sure our children had what they
needed, and I'd help him fight if need be.
Were I pre-children, well I'd have probably given my seat to a guardian with children.
Oh, and I am a feminist. A big bad feminist. In my family tree I have one of the Famous Five even. A slathering egalitarian.
I'd like to congratulate myself. All the guys I respect (maybe not agree with) and thought would make good husbands and whom I find I read because I
find that respect "attractive"....I was right. To all the boys who hate women on here, and think its all about looks and power. I can spot a good
man through a monitor. Nothing is more attractive than a clear headed man with values.
