Sorry, liberal ladies, you can’t have it both ways

For 40 years, our liberal/feminist culture has told us that male chivalry and deference to women is an expression of traditional male supremacy over women and must not be allowed. Now women and the liberal media are shocked and scandalized that the men on board the overturned cruise ship in Italy, particularly the crew members, rushed to the lifeboats ahead of the women.

Laura Wood will not allow the liberals this unprincipled exception to their own liberalism. She states with simple and unanswerable logic:

Modern women have no grounds for expecting deference. There is no reason why they should go first.

But Laura also says that a decent man would disregard the feminist ethos and help the women.
