    Do you respect Women?

    I just-a thought about it, an-dah...., after much thinking and remembering, I just found out that I don't respect Women. I just don't know why but every now and then I disrespect them, though not externally.

    I don't know why. Maybe I enjoy it. Maybe I like it. Maybe I get satisfaction. But the exact reason I don't know.

    If I haven't respected them for the last 16 years, will I respect them evv-er in the future?

    From what you say, you didn't realize that you had a lack of respect for women for all those 16 years, for whatever reason. However, now that you are conscious of it, there's every chance that you will change.

    Well if they havent shown you a reason to respect them, the chances are you wont i guess...

    I dont particularly respect them, i dont disrespect them. It depends on the person not whether they are a woman or not...


    Probably the most neutral response ever

    Liam, it just isn't as easy as it seems. No matter how hard do I try, I just get back to Square One (whatever).


    The thing is women should be respected. Most of us won't agree with that, but that's the truth.

    You must continue to try. Don't give up. You'll get there.

    i give them about as much respect as men (only in different ways). they don't deserve any more and they certainly don't deserve any less.

    Pointless question... The only people I don't respect are Surrey fans...

    Yes, I do... unless they give me a reason not to respect them. But that goes for everyone, not just women.

    Well, look at it this way...

    1. You're 16.
    2. You feel women should be respected.
    3. You WANT to respect women.
    4. You're trying to respect women.

    Someday you will.

    I always respect women. At the beginning.

    However, they can lose my respect, and many have successfully done so.

    respect as a gender issue has never crossed my mind.

    yaju, people don't expect to command automatic respect (i dont think) your actions dictate that. respect also doesn't need to be a big thing. the fact that you think women should be respected means that you respect them (i mean us). respect isnt a big thing, it just means that you would treat someone decently i guess.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    completely agree. generally everyone is inclined to have a crak at the other gender every now and then some often used examples:

    Women:
    Guess it's that time of the month
    Alot of insults on shopping

    Men:
    Alot of jokes on how insensitive they are
    Also alot of jokes on how we are unable to do more than one thing at once :duh:

    But TBH i think all are done in light-heartedness and only erally feminisists have something agaisnt the other sex (there aren't too many men's one's. but i think there are some). ATM in the Western World I think it's pretty fair in terms of rights and anything added on now is just swaying towards women having more rights.

    But really respect is something earned. In my book I don't care what anything(like race,colour, gender etc.) you are. Respect is something earned not automaticallly recieved. So by that sense i have been disrespectful to women, but i have done the same to men.

    As Lang said hinted, once you ensure that you don't disrespect women, all is good. It's human nature that we feel the need to earn respect.
