Great to know you would push four year old children out of the way so you could give your daughter water 30 minutes earlier then everyone else... Your an amazing man... Your mother would be proud

I agree with your point that it's cowardly for a man to push women and children out of the way in order to save themselves. However, I just wonder would the thought "my children need me" ever go through the heads of some of the men (fathers) who agree with the "women and children first" rule. Would you think about the fact that your children would have to cope with losing their father if you sacrificed yourself? This is why I agree with the "families with children first" rule the most.

But if you want to be treated like a perpetual child then you have to accept the limitations of rights that goes along with that. Other wise it leads to a situation of mass social unfairness, which in turn leads to social collapse/dark age.

most people here jump in (no pun intended) and say women and children first. but pause a moment. a percentage of those women will be poor contributors to society. especially in this late age we live in. some men will be far better morally than some of the women. how to judge? some women will be quite selfish. some men will be excellent hunters or endowed with excellent wisdom. a definite plus in society. and consider the following example.
a whaling boat sights 2 whales, a male and a female. which do they shoot first and why?
they'll shoot the female first and the male will hang around wondering whats wrong with his mate and ----bang, he's gone too. that's 2 whales!
shoot the male first and the female regards the male as of no further use and clears out. result, only 1 whale.
so which gender is the most selfish? don't get sucked in.
