@theronaldmcdonald Would you assume a man could change his own tire?
If I see him or anyone obviously struggling to change one, I would think they don’t know how to or need help doing so.

The question is: Is a man morally required to help a woman he does not know who is in distress.
Any person who wants to call themselves morally well adjusted should offer help to someone who looks like they require it, if it is something they can help them.There is no law, written or unwritten that people should or shouldn't help each other, but a decent person will try to help another human if they can.Gender, sex, modern day identity politics, they are all irrelevant to this.
@drsatan So if a 40 year old man had a flat tire you would stop just as quickly if it was a 20 year old girl? Be honest.
@drsatan Also, how does someone "look like they require help". Do women inherently "look like they require help" more than men?
I don't drive, I don't know how to change a tyre. So 40 year old man or 20 year old woman, the most I could offer either is to make a call for them with my phone or check Google maps for something close by that could be of use to them. I would offer this to either of them.
And your second question. In your scenario, they have broken down in the middle of the road with a flat tyre. That's how they look like they need help. Nice set of perky tits or a fat belly and bald head, a flat tyre looks the same either way.
"you alright there mate, you need some help with that tyre?""nah, I'm good, I got a spare in the boot, I've fixed a trye before""you sure?""yeah, I'm good. But thanks for the offer""just checking. Have a nice day!""cheers, man, you too!"
OK, do you think women are likely to stop to help a man? Do you think men are more likely to stop to help a woman?
Some women would stop to help a man, some wouldn't.Some men would stop to help a woman, some men wouldn't.🤷♂️ Some people are just to shy, awkward or scared to offer help for whatever reason. Also, some people are just pricks who don't want to help. Gender isn't really relevant to this.
As a woman, would you "expect" someone to stop and help you? I can tell you this, no man expects anyone to come to his rescue unless they are being paid. Only women "expect" free help.
My gender has nothing to do with it. As a human being, I hope that someone would be nice enough to help me when I need it. 1. Don’t lump everyone in together. 2. If guys aren’t socially functioning enough to expect basic human courtesy, then that’s something that needs to be addressed because that’s not ok.
Only a woman would say "gender has nothing to do with it". If you did an experiment with a young man with a flat tire and young woman with a flat tire, you would have 10X the number of men stopping to help the woman. You cannot deny this. The question is: Does a man have a moral responsibility to help a woman he does not know who is in distress.
Why do you feel the need to keep bringing gender into what is inherently an issue over morality vs humanitarianism? I’ve answered that with my first comment. Learn to read.
The question is gender based. Why is this so hard for you to understand? Gender has a huge impact for things all of us do.
And I keep telling you the issue itself is not. It’s a matter of humanism vs morality in times of distress. You add it on as an unnecessary metric here. If your point is to shine a light on the gender disparity, make a mytake about it instead of using it to rant or complain. So again, read the first comment.
@Agape93 Have you ever seen the videos of men publicly being violent toward women and women being publicly violent toward men? The reaction of people around the incident was entirely different based on the gender of the "victim". Whether you want to believe it or not, gender makes a big difference in many things.
I’m not going to keep responding since 1. You’re not reading my answer. 2. We’ve talked before I’m pretty sure. 3. It’s clear you’re only here to bitch.
"Almost anyone". Would you be more likely to stop to help a 40 year-old man or a 20 year-old girl? Be honest.
More likely? both about equal.I'd skip if it was hitler or trump or something.
What would a setup look like and how could you tell drying by at 60 mph?
It's pretty common here for criminals to use a young or old "helpless" person to get a good Samaritan to drop their guard and then rob them, etc. And why are you flying by this helpless woman at 60 mph, that's dangerous
It sounds like it is better to just roll on by, maybe be a good Samaritan by calling 911 on your mobile phone.
Yes honestly in this day and age, there are many looking to take advantage of good willed people so calling in non-emergency 911 would be best
You say that with a "LOL", but I bet you would not stop to help a man.
"Like you would anyone else lol."
