I Believe That Women Should Treat Men With Respect

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 867 People

    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...

    A respected man provides a respectful

    environment when he knows respect. The respected man prides himself as sincere, dignified, and takes care of everyone of his loved ones and his business affairs. He is responsible, and doesn't abuse his authority. He cherishes and nurtures the ones that love his role and his...

    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...

    Misandry Must Go Out Of Style

    It Goes Both Ways!

    Across The Board

    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...

    Why shouldn't a girl hold open a door

    for a guy if they happen to be behind them? Why should girls automatically assume that because someone has a penis, they automatically want sex?

    "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...

    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
