In a post yesterday I asked about "old values" that post is still open if you want to check it out....
Several people commented that having a door opened for them weakened what women had fought for in equal rights and commented that they were "strong enough" to open the door for themselves.
I too am a Strong, Independent woman. I can fix a toilet, lay tile, put up a ceiling fan, mow the yard (you get the picture)and I do all this around my home...So, I can certainly open my own door.
BUT my husband is a gentleman and he opens the door for me. When I am out with my sons even my 8 yr old will open the door for me and he will hold it open for the people behind us.
Wanting to be treated with respect does not lower my value as a woman, it only increases it.
