so then, would giving up my life for 7 kids and a mom to survive be the best way for me to serve my purpose? what if one of those kids should give up their life so that i could live to spread the message.
you're operating under the assumption that you know what is right and wrong, in every situation, and that i have to let one of 7 diabetic, jersey shore addicted, middle school drop out survive to do my part to help? please.
...one of those kids is gonna get thrown over board and i'm gonna float to a longer life...

People in staunch support of this rule seem to be mixing situations and emotions and have not put fourth any reasoning other than women are defenseless little victims that us big strong men have to take care of.

The problem here is no matter how much we try, there will always be the ones that just don't give a sh@t. Chivalry is almost a thing of the past. I live by it, my kids will learn it, my wife respects it, and I will be that way until the day I die. Whether that day is a long time from now, or sacrificing for the greater good.

As a woman I think this rule needs to be thrown out the window. Seriously. Ever go to walmart and see a terrible 'ignoring her childrens behavior' mother with 3+ screaming horribly behaved children? Yea- she deserves to be saved over a man.

The people in the Titannic did not think things thru clearly enough. The mentality that men are expendable is just plain wrong!
The first thing that happened is the first class woman and children got into lifeboats. Since it was unthinkable that they should mingle with lower classes - those lifeboats were mostly empty. Also there was an insufficient number of men to man the oars. The first priority was to get the lifeboats away from the ship.
Most men would give their lives for their woman and children - out of love, not chivalry.
Personally, speaking as a woman - I would gladly give my place to a couple of kids. But as an older woman who has already lived, given birth and seen my grandchildren into the world, I would also give my place to a younger man.
This isn't about manners or chivalry - I have given life and would die to preserve it! That is my birthright as a woman. It is the choice I claim for myself.
So thank you guys - I love love love you all for your gallantry - but you serve my purposes and values best if you survive to bring children into the world. Love them and protect them as men are meant to do.
