Questionable Advice in Esquire Magazine

Four women deign to tell clueless men when we may help them:

A woman is lugging a large suitcase through the airport. Do we offer to help?
Katherine: I think a good rule of thumb is, if it looks like we're struggling, offer to help -- we'll really appreciate it.
Alyssa: As much as I want to be pro-feminist and able-bodied, if I'm carrying something heavy, help a girl out.

Translation, as much as I squawk about principles, I'll abandon them when inconvenient. Shouldn't common courtesy be common sense?
