Our culture does not support those notions anymore, as they are castigated and maligned as being the artifacts of some supposed iron-fisted patriarchal paradigm of which all vestiges must be destroyed. As to myself, I still do those awful, oppressive things, like opening doors, pulling out chairs, etc...but they are more force of habit than they are a sense of higher ordered thinking. I refuse to be bullied into thinking that this is wrong by any snotty-nosed new-agey punk who thinks they have all the answers to life. I shall continue in this horribly oppressive behavior until the Politically Correct Storm Troopers arrest me and haul me off to Patriarchy Prison; I would go, gladly.
This society does not value deference or even being polite to one another. Such behavior is considered suspicious, at best. This is especially true withing the dynamics of gender relations, as any sort of example that purports differences between men and women is considered border-line criminal. Don't blame the idea that men have changed; society and its values have.
I do. Count me in.
I try but then im only a "c" student
yes it is a shame
I'm so sorry none left. They're all beyond repair.
yes but never realy gets me anywhere . to be honest you hold door open for a younger woman 20-40 you get a smile and thank you you hold a door open for old woman nothing not even a thank you. especialy them on those stupid scooters try run you over than scoul at you
well i allways open a door for a women etc,i was brought up to respect women.but im seeing a women at the min,that said she can open the door herself,she finds it odd that i do that,she even said it to her sister,that i open doors for her etc,in a way i was hurt by that
For what it's worth, I think it's the sign of a gentleman when a man opens a door for me. Sorry your girl doesn't appreciate it.
no she doesnt.does she,,does that make me a fool to be seeing her?
