Costa Concordia

A lot has been written in the manosphere about the accident of the Costa Concordia and the aftermath. Women seem to be complaining about the "Women and Children First" practice not being followed to their liking, while men have been commenting that after decades of feminism, it is no longer realistic to expect this. My take on this is a little different: I think the problem that women are having is that men were not rushing to sacrifice themselves for the women on board; this pokes holes in the ideology of feminism. In a push-comes-to-shove dangerous situation, a woman's "specialness" is just not apparent.

I don't think that women are complaining about a lack of gallantry, I think they are complaining about a lack of servile behavior from the men.
