Giving the seat to pregnant women in common places, particularly in public vehicles, is considered the standard and surely the correct thing to practice. However, is it decent for a pregnant mother to request seats from another person?

Recently one man has aroused an argument on social media after announcing that he will not offer his seat on public vehicles due to being weary from prolonging duty time. The case began while the man got to a subforum on Reddit to convey his experience. In this subforum named “Am I the A** hole?”, members post multifarious battles and afflictions they have faced, and while online society votes on if the original poster did the correct thing or not.

The thread posted was named “AITA for not giving up my seat to a pregnant woman?“, based on the thread, the original poster has recently refused to offer his seat to a pregnant mother when he is going on a public vehicle working for 10 hours. He queried the online society, whether what he made out was agreeable or not.

Here is the post,

The Redditor informed too that he said the mother that is not on him to give her help as she couldn’t have a car. While this saying was listened to by an older person going on a similar bus, the original poster was blamed.

This post got both plus and minus comments on Reddit. The man’s character was highly censured by a lot of social media followers, with some Reddit members posting,

But some people were auxiliary to the man, posting that nobody, not even a pregnant mother has the equities to ask the seat from another one.
