    Lately, I have been seeing a lot of sexism toward men, and its the same women who were advocating for "equal rights". It makes me uneasy. I believe that everyone deserves some degree of respect. I do not believe that men are the root of all evil, as they are often made out to be...

    Again, another group

    that I think was made by a man. :p what about men showing women some respect? Respect goes both ways. Maybe the title of this group should be called - "I believe that men and women should show respect for each other." Also, someone will not get respect if they don't deserve it...

    We are not the fairer sex anymore

    than we are the greater see. If we expect respect from men we need to offer it.

    It should be both ways.

    Especially if it's well deserved.

    We all are used to hearing the word "Gentleman".

    Has anyone ever heard or used the word "Gentlewoman"?? It's as if guys must behave all humble and polite and gentlemanly but girls can behave in any which way they want. Why is this bias between guys and girls??

    How many women and men here think

    that women should not be respected by men? I think some women have zero self respect, and those women have zero respect for themselves should not be respected by anyone.

    Misandry Must Go Out Of Style

    I'm a really sensitive guy. Anyone who knows me IRL will tell you that. I've also been harrassed and discriminated against for my gender. The problem I have with this is: it's considered acceptable behavior to humiliate or subjugate males both in public and in polite company...

    "I believe that boys,

    feeling ashamed of their vulnerability, mask their emotions and ultimately their true selves. This unnecessary disconnection--from family and then from self--causes many boys to feel alone, helpless, and fearful. And yet society's prevailing myths about boys do not leave room...

    This title is biased

    but true. The whole truth is we as people and humans should treat each other with respect across the board. I was raised with respect being part of the fundamentals of dealing and associating with others. It was simply a core value. Respect was mutually given and earned and we...

    I believe that relationships must have mutual respect to survive.  Without that then there is not much to build on.  I respect my guy because he is honorable and he loves me like no one else can.  I respect his wishes for me because I know he loves me and has my...

    Nunquam Honorandum Nisi Merito

    I also believe that men should act in such a way as to deserve that respect. I have a grudge against peoples use of the term "respect" I prefer instead "tolerate" -  respect, to me, is something sacred - you don't think 'I should treat that person with respect' It happens...

    Men Need To Demand Respect.

    Too many men today have been raised by misandrist single mothers and educated by misandrist schoolmarms. Too many men today won't demand respect. Too many men accept the constant men bashing, disrespectful language, and misandry without objection. Female schoolmarms have been...

    And vice versa. People should respect each

    other in general. It does seem to me, though, that men do get crapped on by society a lot. So do women, but men are told that they're just supposed to take it and "man up." I hate what society has done to you, and I'm sorry.

    The American Man, A Dying Breed

    Society has made it so difficult for a man to become a man.  We belittle them on television programs/TV commericals, many sitcoms portray the wife running things, while their husbands are idiots worthy of a good chuckle.  We are trained as young girls to demand equality, to go...

    Let's face it: Do unto other is a real thing.

    If you want to be treated with respect, you have to give it. Of course, true respect is earned, so be on the lookout for that. Just because someone seems respectable doesn't mean they are.
