I get that you think that guys opening doors and letting women off of a sinking ship first is outdated and sexist. But, sadly, your reasons for them doing such things are simply not correct. You said it’s because people thought women were weaklings, useless, helpless. Nope. It is this wonderful thing called “respect.” (Maybe you’ve heard of it? It used to be the big thing.)
Men USED TO THINK that women were more important. They were quite aware that women could lift and carry. They had seen skirted heroines working in the fields, carrying heavy loads. But out of respect for women, they tried to make the workload easier. Also, they knew women could do something that they could never do- bear children! A man would never, ever have the patience to deal with screaming children, get dinner on the table, keep a house decent, all on three hours sleep. Men viewed women with a kind of awe and reverence, as is our due. Thus, just as a servent opens the door for the king, they opened the doors, took the umbrellas, carried the packages, and let them get off the sinking ships first. Also, you must remember… physically, women ARE WEAKER than men. I’m not being sexist, I am simply stating a fact. My brother Pavel can do things that I can’t. And that’s OK. God made men physically stronger and made women emotionally stronger. We have the power to make a man a beast, a slave to his lust, or make him a man- strong, courageous, passionate, a paradigm of virtue. Our beauty is used to sell everything from cars to blenders, because we know that men cannot resist beautiful women. Have you ever seen an ad where a man in his underwear was used to sell a Ferrari? Of course not! People would react with horror!
In modern times, it seems we have given up being better for being equal. Seeing as we have all but lost the respect for true womanhood, we women think that we are exactly the same as men. The funny thing is, the good men… don’t want to be exactly the same as women. The good men enjoy opening doors. Sure, maybe you have never known a truly good man. But get this- a great many are repulsed by a woman who acts like a man! It’s their job! The king opening the door for the servant doesn’t make much sense, does it? We are sacred. We are beautiful, as women. We have a power and mystique to us that drives men insane! Who on earth would want to give up that?! We don’t need men to complete us; we are complete and perfect. But if a man wants to try for our hearts, OK, let him.
So, my feminazi friend, now do you see the reasoning behind this?
