Isn't it just normal to hold the door open for anyone? I'm a female and I hold a door for male, female, older or younger because where I'm from its not an act of chivalry but courtesy.

#33 I do the same thing . . . unless I am not paying attention . . . in which case I feel like a complete jerk for a few hours before I forget about it . . . then there are those frustrating times when you hold the door open for someone only to find them a lot farther away than you originally determined and so you have to wait for them to leisurely approach and pass through the doorway . . . but that tangent aside, I find that sometimes men won't pass through the door if I open it . . . like they are convinced I have enchanted the door so that when they walk through it they will instantly become gay and fall in love with me . . . or they give me this offensive look like I am questioning their manhood . . . but to address the OP: Do what kindness you deem appropriate, not what others tell you is appropriate. If you like to open doors for people, then open them, and care not for ridicule. If however you don't like doing it at all, then don't do it. Lives will (most likely) not be ruined by this simple slight.

I feel as if holding the door has nothing to do with chivalry, it's just something you do because you don't want to be rude. I mean come on, no one wants the door swinging back and hitting them in the face. (:

#33 I see it a little different. Holding a door open for anyone behind you is normal, just so they don't walk right, face-first into the door. But holding a door open for a woman and let them pass first, is more like chivalry, well that's how I think about it.

150 I think you're looking at the gesture in a wrong way since I always hold the door, especially when it's closing somewhat fast, and regardless of whether male or female

I always hold the door open for women and have been scorned many times, but I always respond with "I'm sorry, I meant no offense. Hope you have a nice day". Now, usually they've stormed off to probably text up their fellow femin-azi's about some you guy having the GALL to open a door for her. Some people just can't handle kindness and/or being courteous.

I don't mind feminism, I don't. I'm happy with what they're doing for us females. But when they get angry over the smallest things, it's the most annoying thing. One of my favorite artists drew a picture including males and females and many feminists on the site it was located took offense because the females were jutting out their hips and showing some thigh. It's just a picture of fictional characters, what does it matter!?

I'm a woman, and I find feminists annoying. It's just a damn door, it's just damn chivalry. It's not like a door-holding man is trying to make you less equal, he's just being polite. Go find something more important to bitch about. Your boss won't give you a raise because you're female? Go feminist on his ass. But seriously... to be offended by someone holding a DOOR open for you?

Personally i think women signed away all prefered treatment the day they got equality. I will treat you as a person not a "man" or "woman" because that just encourages me to think of the two as very different species instead of two equal sides of the same coin. That being said i am always very polite to everyone that i meet. I will admit that i do treat women i have an interest in in a somewhat chivalric way. This is not because they're a woman but because i wish for another human being who just happens to have rather attractive qualities such as a sense of humor and the ability to bear children to enjoy my company.

I always say thank you because honestly it doesn't happen so often anymore that a guy will go through the entire act of opening a door and letting you go first.

I agree. I'm a woman and I hold the door open for people coming behind me. I expect others to do the same. I don't expect men to hold doors open for me and stand aside so I can enter first. Anyone that returns politeness with rudeness is a bitch, regardless of gender.

I think the distinction is that it's chivalrous when you hold a door open and let the woman go first, but it's common courtesy when you hold the door open for the person behind you regardless of their sex.

Well woman wanted equal rights. They open their own door. They stand on a bus when all the seats are taken (unless there are other circumstances). Equal rights also mean. Woman slaps man, man slaps woman. That's equality.

  onlychildFTW  |  33

Yeah probably not. It was just an example because I seem to hear a lot of stories where girls and slapping guys. I don't know why but I seem to hear about it frequently.

Also, men and women are biologically different, no matter how equal they are perceived to be socially. Typically, a man is capable of inflicting a lot more damage on a woman. This is why it is generally more frowned-upon for a man to hit a woman, because he can be seen as having an unfair advantage. But from a moral standpoint, hitting someone else is wrong no matter how you slice it.

If a man hits a woman, she can walk it off. It might hurt, bit she'll survive without any real permanent damage. If a woman hits a man in the balls hard enough, he'll be grovelling on the ground for an hour or more, not to mention potential loss of the ability to have children. What was that about men being able to inflict more damage? On a side note, I do agree that hitting someone is wrong "no matter how you slice it" though.

42 - according to equal rights activists that is totally untrue as that would mean men are also more capable of performing work duties which involve physical labor... Hitting ANYONE is wrong, regardless of gender, however in the times we live in now a man hitting a woman is no worse than a woman hitting a man... Women who think otherwise have extreme feminists to thank for that.

notsorandomguy: No. Absolutely not. "she can walk it off" Are you high, or just pain stupid? Even if you think a girl can "walk off" a slap from a guy, is it not still common courtesy (or common sense, even) not to raise your hand to them? My goodness, if this is the mindset of my generation then give me a one way ticket to the next galaxy. Bottom line, nobody should be hitting anyone. But a man most definitely shouldn't raise his hand to a woman. Fool.

I hope you all realize how society thinks its funny when women beat men, but horrifying if a man beats a woman. They're both bad, and I'm sickened by double standards of reverse-sexism.

61 you're comparing two completely different situations? You're comparing a man maybe slapping a girl in the face with a small amount of force because she put mayo in his sandwich, to a crazy bitch of a woman out to kill the guy. Let's try putting an average man and an average woman in a cage. The woman killed the man's wife, and the man killed the woman's son. They're both pretty pissed. Who inflicts more damage? I don't know about you, but as an average woman, I'd probably back out of that fight.

165- You've got right. If a man hits a woman, she can hit back and if a woman hits a man (or kicks him 'there'), he can hit back. If someone wants I hurt someone, regardless of gender, they should be hit back. And if a man opens a door for a woman, and there are two doors, (a door, then a walkway-room-thingy then a door) she had damn better open the door for him, unless carrying a lot of stuff and that's why he opened the door in the first place. Vice versa on the man and woman. Equality at its finest.

Well I just hold the door for the people behind me, but I deem that so "normal" that I would be surprised if they thanked me. "Thank you for not throwing the door in my face" ?

229 - women say it all the time not realizing its sexist, they try to prove theyre tougher than a man by saying that since they can stretch their hoo-hah out to pass a child through it and endure that pain then they are tougher than men...

Wrong. these were two seperate responses from two women. so neither one was contradicting themselves.

I'm still a believer in chivalry... The last girl I was with was a complete bitch though... She was totally un-grateful for what I could offer her and she took advantage of my niceness... I was still a nice guy even after she broke up with me... I learned a lot to say the least... Chivalry still exists for me :)

Thinking that a special kind of action is sexistic is usually more sexistic than the action itself. Be yourself and hold whatever doors you want to and don't give a fuck to the world!

Next time ask permission to hold the door open. Might work
