called him a sexist for thinking she needs a seat

Men just can't win these days

Mrs May is sexist for giving Trumps daughter an English tea set as a gift according to the papers. I probably came from Harrods at £2,000 or more


Pathetic

I would volunteer my seat to anybody whom I deem to be in need of it, toddlers, elders, etc.

But if someone asks for my seat, the decision would be made solely on the language he or she uses in doing so.
Believe it or not, it's true.

Just this morning on the subway train in China, a young lady refused to offer her seat to an elderly man standing right in front of her who asked her for the seat which has a sign over her head, 'Please offer seat to those in need'!!  And this is not an isolated case, we see that everyday.  Something has gone wrong with education in China!

'But if someone asks for my seat, the decision would be made solely on the language he or she uses in doing so.'

I've been to other countries near China and people invariably offer heir seats to thosein need, like the elderly, without any asking!  Chinese commuters may occasionally do so; most of the time they don't, even when those in need stand right in front of them, swaying about as the train twists and turns and brakes, so disgusting! And all this while the sign above them clearly ask them to ffer their seats to those in need, in addition to the frequent announcement over the PA system calling for the same.
Some commuters are too ashamed to see the elderly and the pregnant standing in front of them,  and pretend to fall asleep!!  Chinese commuters need a lot of education on graciousness!!

Unless for really good reasons like poor health and sudden needs; there is no good reason for doing it!

I can only speak for China because that's where I am;  but yes, your point is taken!
