110. It is unfair to women, thank you for saying that!
What if I don't want to sit next to a child? As a couple of posters said above, it's like being a "surrogate mommy." And it's an insult to men because it's implying that women are "safer." Utter bullshit. Kids shouldn't be alone on planes anyway.
