Yesterday I was in a shop and there was a woman carrying a lot of luggage. I was standing by the door waiting for someone. When she went out the door she looked back at me as if she expected me to open the door for her. A similar thing happened a few years ago. I was in a shop and a woman was carrying many bags. She got offended that I didn't open the door for her and she turned round and said, "What's wrong with men today not opening the door"?
But here's the thing: I've come across many women who get offended when I do open the door for them. I used to work in a retail store and on two occasions I ended up holding the door open for another woman who also worked at the store. On both occasions she gave me a dirty look and grunted as she walked through the door. Other times, women have just completely ignored me and didn't even smile or say thank you. So now I don't bother.
This is the brain damage that feminism has done to so many women. Over here in the UK where I'm from, there have been articles published in the mainstream newspapers that say, "Holding doors open for women is sexism, according to new studies." There was another article published in the UK that claimed that if a man smiles as a woman it means he is sexist.
Now, anyone with a brain will know that this is complete garbage, but sadly there are too many women who swallow this garbage and believe it. If I see a woman carrying a lot of luggage, I just don't know how she is going to react if I hold the door open for her. My experience has been 50/50. Some women appreciate it, but far too many women get offended and treat me like crap. What a great job feminism and the media has done on women.
What is your opinion on this?
