most of them women and children

I'm glad you made that clear because I think we all know that men deserve to die in a stampede.

This commonly used discriminator pisses me off because:
  1. it suggests women are as weak and helpless as children
  2. it suggests somehow women are more innocent and blameless than men (I'll grant children probably are more innocent)
  3. it suggests the loss of a woman or child is a greater loss to the world than the loss of a man
  4. I'm a man
