Say, this is a bit of a side track to the topic, but I just got to thinking. (a rarity to be sure) What's the sub-context in movies with women helping men with their ties?
Usually seems to be a mothering thing.
It's just easier for someone standing in front of you to tie it, than to tie it yourself cracking your neck to look down at it.

I solved this issue by not ever wearing a tie for the last 15 years.
I suspect it'd be harder to tie a tie "backward" as woman would have to do it facing the man. I think it's a "mothering" thing as well, in showing how the woman would "care for the man," also goes along with the "men are idiots" trope.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
