My SO and I recently found ourselves discussing what we would do if we found ourselves in a hostage situation (we're not, btw). We were talking about who should be released first. I said that parents and carers should be released first. My SO agreed, but said that after that women should be released before men. His reasoning was that men tend to cause more trouble in the world. I said that he might have a point, but it's not very likely to apply to a specific group of people.
Any thoughts on this hypothetical situation? How would you go about deciding who got released first?
