hmm, I thought ladies liked gentlemen. Oh well, I'll stop holding doors if it makes them feel better
Wow, I really could set my watch by you for predictable responses.
Here's a clue for you: hold the doors for everyone
, regardless of their age, sex, race or disability. Do it because it is the polite, courteous and correct thing to do, do it without even thinking about it, and then go on with your life.
Don't hold doors for women simply because they are women, hold doors for them because they are human beings
, and no-one likes having a door slam shut in their face. And especially
don't crow about how you totally hold the door for ladies and expect nothing back, because the very act of you crowing about it shows that you want validation for being oh-so-chivalrous. That's not very gentlemanly.
Yes, you analyzed me perfectly. I only
hold the doors for women, and I do it because I know that they are weak and frail and that only me, the strong man, can help them. I don't hold the door for my male friends, I slam it in their faces. Because they, unlike the frail female gender, can take the pain. It's like you analyzed my entire 19-year old life out of one comment (that I changed before I even read your reply to it) and got everything spot-on.
I never bragged about holding doors for women, I just said that I was nice to women as a simple act of kindness, as proof that don't dislike women. Now you are accusing me of being disrespectful of women... by being kind to them?
I don't thinka nyone I will say will change your mind, you've got your mind set on me being a horrible misogynist who has devoted his life to protect the "weak and frail women". You're searching
me for faults so that you can attack me. And I
were the one who had to apologize.
