Women and children first, is that a sexist way of thinking?

The reason women and children first is men are supposed to be the protectors. That's just they way people are wired. It has nothing to do with sexist. Men and women are different and have different rolls.

Its just the way it is.

How could I look myself in the mirror as a man if I took a spot from a woman or a anything, be it a sinking ship or riding the Subway.

Being a man means 2 things: We get the big piece of chicken & Die First.

Children, never, they are always vulnerable.

Women - Today, yes. But in the times when that philosophy was most prevalent it was absolutely not sexist.

It should be children and the weak first, so the strong can help them and then save themselves.

So, in a sinking ship, would you put all senior citizens before healthy and strong?

Haha I dunno, this is getting too complicated.

No, unless you want the women to have sex with the children before you do.

Then it's just wrong...

Praetorianus Fair enough.

I'd suggest children first. They are definitely much more vulnerable than men and women. But adults - women first is sexist in a way. If a ship sinks, those who don't get into lifeboats have to swim, and I don't see why women can't swim as well.
