Got an interesting email from Bonnie, who is a regular listener and asked if I would pose this question as a social dilemma. It was something she experienced last week, and it really bugged her so I told her of course I would put it out to you. Here's the deal. Last week Bonnie was in NYC, riding the subway. Bonnie, along with several other women in their 40's were all standing up holding on to the straps while a good lot of younger or same age men were sitting down. Not one of the men offered to give up their seat to her or her friends. And Bonnie was a bit upset about it. She thought it would just be the nice thing to do, offer a woman your seat. For me, I think it would be nice, but I don't think it's necessary. When I was in Disney last month, a mom had her young son offer his seat to me while I was standing on a bus, and while I thought it was sweet, I didn't want to be thought of as someone who needed to get the seat. Now if someone is disabled or elderly, that's different, I think we all should be offering our seat, but to just have a man offer a seat to a woman, I think it's nice but not necessary. What do you think? Should a man always offer his seat to a woman or is that part of chivalry dead?
