This one came about after the incident with Sully Sullenberger, the airline pilot who finessed an emergency landing of his distressed plane in the Hudson River. This was back in 2009.
The thing was, once again, women and children were the first ones to be let off the plane and to safety. Then, the men were allowed to go.
I have always wondered about this policy. It is not enshrined in law or anything. If a guy insisted on being part of the first group to go to safety, I don't think he could be arrested for anything. He might be permanently deemed an asshole, but I am unaware of any laws being broken.
I began to ask myself some questions, ones which I feel demanded answers. These are uncomfortable, inconvenient questions, and I posted them in this blog post.
Let me know what you think.
See you tomorrow.
