The "Chivalry is Dead" Myth Debunked by New Study

Chivalry is dead, men operate on a bias against women, men care less about women than they do about other men.
We've heard all of this before and we are hearing it constantly as the "war on women" rhetoric reaches a fever-pitch but this new groundbreaking study shows that both men and women would sacrifice men in order to save women if they had to choose.
This is why there will never be military draft that includes women in most countries. Quote:
"We’re More Likely to Protect Women Than We Are Men
We’re more likely to sacrifice a man than a woman when it comes to both saving the lives of others and in pursuing our self-interests, a team of psychology researchers has found.
“Our study indicates that we think women’s welfare should be preserved over men’s,” observes Oriel FeldmanHall, a post-doctoral researcher at New York University and the study’s lead author....
In the trolley scenario, subjects read one of three versions of the dilemma, where each vignette described a man, woman, or gender-neutral bystander on the bridge.
The participants were then asked how willing they were to “push the [man/woman/person] onto the path of the oncoming trolley” in order to save five others farther down the track.
The results showed that both female and male subjects were much more likely to push the male bystander or one of unspecified gender than they were the female bystander."

Girls Use Indirect Agression to Manipulate and Shame Competition.

    While it's that boys do tend to be more direct with their aggression, girls on the other end, learn through their verbal skills how to manipulate people, form groups in order to pressure or shame others.  Boys do tend to bully but girls are the ones who use the most peer pressure, and peer group in order to bully each other:

This was found in a study titled, "Do Girls Manipulate and Boys Fight?", where they have revealed that girls as young as 8, tend to use indirect means of aggression; such as passive-aggressiveness, manipulation and using groups to intimidate rivals. While not prevalent to girls of that age, the trend and frequency skyrocketed by ages 11 through 15 - which the study also revealed that adult women were the biggest users of indirect aggression:


And from another study title, "Do human females use indirect aggression as an intrasexual competition strategy?" women have been found to use the same types of passive aggressive strategies in order to exaggerate their own sexual value by shaming or defaming another women to other women, or the men they  target for sexual selection:

"Indirect aggression includes behaviours such as criticizing a competitor's appearance, spreading rumours about a person's sexual behaviour and social exclusion. Human females have a particular proclivity for using indirect aggression, which is typically directed at other females, especially attractive and sexually available females, in the context of intrasexual competition for mates. Indirect aggression is an effective intrasexual competition strategy. It is associated with a diminished willingness to compete on the part of victims and with greater dating and sexual behaviour among those who perpetrate the aggression."
