  • I think it is courteous for him to open the doors, and it saves confusion if he leads while dancing. If his hands are full, I hurry and open the door. Sometimes doors are heavy, and I appreciate the man opening the door.

  • I think its very sweet & love when it is done for me... my dh doesnt all the time, but on occasion he will..
    as for dancing. someone needs to leads. its nice for it to be the man but hey if you are the better dancer, lead! I think if me & dh ever go to a club (ya 10yrs together & hes never went to a club & dances with me -sad) I will lead! UNLESS we go get lessons & he learns .. lol

  • What does that have to do with being a feminist?

  • Feminism doesn't mean abandonment of courtesy. I don't NEED someone to open a door for me though it's nice when my hands are full. As to leading when dancing....well, my husband doesn't dance!

  • I was under the impression that women ruled the world and we just let the men believe that we need them to lead us!!! lol

  • Those things are cultural and have nothing to do with getting paid equally for the same job or having the same opportunities as a man. Yes, I like a man to open the door for me, lead when dancing, and treat me like a lady. But he knows I am intelligent, work hard, and have an opinion that he respects. We are equals in our own ways.
