In answer to your questions:

“Why was one of my staff flashing her tits at me during a meeting?” That is a case for a lecture from HR about inappropriate behaviour. In some workplaces, that would result in instant dismissal.

Yes, you should carry a heavy item for a woman if asked nicely. Why, because men are physically stronger,and you should not want your female colleague to injure herself.

Yes, you should “give your seat up for this pregnant women.” So should the young women, and so should school age children on the same bus. It is the considerate thing to do. I’m now at the age where giving up my seat is often refused by the person I think needs it more, but I still offer.

Now for your statistics:

The bottom line is that Men are disadvantaged in many negative ways, including having shorter lives, but that doesn’t invalidate the claim that Women’s main problems have a common cause, and that is Men. The statistics support the view that Men’s biggest problems are also other Men, so we are still part of the problem.
