Gender roles are just degrading and annoying. It's unfair that men are expected to do things like, hold the door for women, pull out a chair for women, escort women, protect women, text women first, pick women up for events/dates etc. Women can do all that themselves unless physically incapable to do so. Though out of curtsy women can do it for men too! Most men feel as if they need must be superior to women and do everything for them when women can do it all by themselves, instead of it always having to be the "Big Man" to do everything. Forget the idea of men being the ones doing everything. Therefore, instead of expecting just men to have courtesy, why not expect women to do so too? Nothing's wrong with splitting up the check after the dinner date or allowing the women to pay every once in a while.
I think that some people do need to do things for themselves when they are with someone or even alone. But when it comes to a man holding the door, paying on the first date or something that's a sign of how nice a guy is and isn't like those jerks in the world. Now women have to learn to be lady like too by not burping in front of anyone, chewing with your mouth closed etc. Also i know many ladies who have been with someone for long and they pay sometimes when going out.
Hold on... "Women have to be a lady like too" So, are you implying there's a certain way to act like a lady? If burping and chewing with your mouth open is so rude for a lady to do in public then why not just get away from the woman who's doing it? It's not very polite, but men do it so it had absolutely nothing to do with being or acting like a lady. Though, I do agree with you for implying that paying for a date and stuff is a way of showing kindness unlike the other jerk offs in this world, but a woman doing the same thing would be just as kind and honorable as a man. If a man can pay for dinner and hold open doors, then so can a woman! If she makes her own money and has 2 working hands and arms the let her do what the men are expected to do!
I think that PEOPLE need to say excuse me or hold it in if they burp in front of people, otherwise that would be disrespectful. Also when i would leave school with my dad and the door was closing ladies would hold the door for him and he would reply with a thank you. I mean I see ladies doing nice things to for men all the time in public, ask your'e friends or family its not just mean who do these things. Also i think men do need to take the chair out for women to sit this goes with what i was saying about showing that not all men are jerks and he is trying to show that.
Well a girl can also pull a chair out for a guy. It's not right that men are expected to do everything for women as if women can't do it all on their own. I understand it's polite and out of curtsy but it shouldn't just be expected from a man, because women do it too, all the time except for some reason people expect it to be the other way around.
women do things for men too i don't know what world your living in but i see women holding the door for men all the time, i see women paying on dates, and more. so its not just men who do those things plus no matter how much you say that men do things all the time, you wont have proof because i mean who takes statics of which majority gender does specific things for each other.
