    So I was sharing a book about the Titanic with my kid (schoolwork) and we got to the part of “women and children first”. He asked why that was, and I said “Men didn’t always have the equal rights we have today. Nowadays, women can sink with the ship just as well as any man can.”

    My wife wasn’t impressed.

    If you really want to start a good fight, just say "The stacked ones came with their own flotation devices" Then duck.

    nowadays I'll tie the women and children together and form them into a crude life-raft so I can save myself.

    equality is a bitch

    I swear on a roaring 2204, I said (a few minutes later) that I was surprised that chick could sink, with those built in life preservers. She got even pissed-der.

    Never hit a woman! They have some seriously dangerous hatred and bitterness that shouldn't be tapped into. Equality isn't equal.

    You saying women need a man to rescue them?? To give up their spot so “the weak little damsel in distress can get in the boat??

    Geez, dude. I think most women would find that a little offensive.

    I'll put a hot woman first if there is the likelihood of 'return' ...shall we say.

    Other than that ...use your damn 'woman power' and save yourself.

    I liked Bill Burr's bit about it. Men make more money than women because for some reason if we're on a sinking boat, the women and children get to survive

    Last time I opened a door for a thirty year old woman she looked at me
    with an evil eye (yes yes, evil eye!) and said:
    "I can open my own door thank you."
    To which I replied: "It's not even your door.
    It's a store door. Get your own store door and then we'll talk!"
    :dunno:

    Dude. That’s amazing.
    “It’s not even your door.”
    I’m gonna have to remember that.

    An intelligent, non confrontational response, intended to signal that the maker was standing his ground in response to an unreasonably aggressive comment...

    ...sounds like toxic masculinity to me...

    You should have just gazed down at her tits, said nothing, then kept walking.
