Let’s see feminists push for female inclusion to the draft.
2. Most feminists, myself included, want to completely abolish the draft and selected service.
The idea of “women and children first” wasn’t invented by women - it was invented by men
Just another part of the patriarchy, I suppose? How dare those men try to stop us from drowning
First of all, it was never even a thing. Women and Children First was not ever a widely used practice for evacuating ships.
In fact, let’s look at some actual facts: While the phrase first appeared in the 1860 novel Harrington: A Story of True Love, by William Douglas O’Connor. [source]
As a code of conduct, “women and children first” has no basis in maritime law, and according to University of Greenwich disaster evacuation expert Professor Ed Galea, in modern-day evacuations people will usually “help the most vulnerable to leave the scene first. It’s not necessarily women, but is likely to be the injured, elderly and young children.”
Furthermore, the results of a 2012 Uppsala University study suggest that the application of “women and children first” may have, in practice, been the exception rather than the rule.
And really. Is this the best yall have? Your best example of sexism against men is a myth about women getting preferential seating in maritime disasters?
