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."
