    I think you do need to elaborate because now I really don't get it.

    uh oh, r/mensrights is leaking here. gross.

    A number of traditions are founded on (or entirely) sexism, and a lot of people resist changing tradition. A lot of the "ladies first" types of things came about because women were seen as basically very expensive, fragile and helpless brood mares for future sons, not because they were valued more than men in any way. This attitude is kinda the opposite of feminism, so uhhh.....not exactly a convincing argument.

    (I would prefer to have men and women treated equally in each of the scenarios you mentioned, other than in scenarios where physical strength is relevant, and even there an effort can be made).

    that seemed to have turned out pretty much ok, since she spoke her mind and the leader of the opposition had to resign. also, that gave her a lot of media coverage (and, by extension, maybe also to the *ahem* "feminist cause)
    lastly, she may be a feminist, but she's a homophobic prick.

    Besides, I'd rather change a tire because I think I'm more likely to do it properly.

    I used to work on my own car (I don't have one anymore, I prefer walking, but none the less)
    I worked in a factory making car parts, so I figured why the hell not?

    I'd use a pipe over the end of the lug wrench for mechanical leverage, but hey, work smart, not hard.

    I much prefer to split the bill or take turns paying. I never understood guys who always insist on paying in full.

    As far as tires go, I usually have someone do it for me. Not because I'm female, but because I'm mechanically challenged and clumsy with tools. If I'm stranded out the in the country alone, I'll try to change it myself but it's not what I prefer to do.

    Ha! These two make me glad to be a female. Especially when your gender can save your life. Not to mention that women also have a longer life expectancy.

    Points of explanation -

    The Leader of the Opposition still has his job and is very likely to be our next Prime Minister.

    And our Prime Minister is homophiliac rather than homophobic.
