It's easy to fall into the trap. That a woman is someone's mother, someone's child, someones sister, his girlfriend, so when they are doing something you don't seem "correct", as long as you remind yourself of those "human" traits, you can stop judging and disrespecting her. But a women's connection to someone else matters just about as much as how short her skirt is or how many people she's slept with. The idea that you should respect a woman because she is anything but another human being is one of the most telling problems of gender inequality. Women should ALWAYS have your respect, not because of her connection to someone, but because she IS a someone.
Think of it this way, when a man does anything wrong or "socially incorrect" the defense is "well boys will be boys." Not; don't judge too hard, he's someone's son. Sounds stupid when it's reversed huh?

@buddyed that's totally how it should be! Like it really shouldn't be so hard to not treat humans like garbage because they're a different gender (or race, or class, or any other thing) but there's this weird superiority complex that comes in all these different ways and shapes so many of our interactions
@shannonl5 I know, right? how hard is it to show a little courtesy to each other?
@shannonl5 @buddyesd yes i agree completely!! like everyone should be treated with respect because they deserve it!!!! its insane that that isn't a normal concept, its really not that difficult.
@LizArnone not at all, in fact it's one of the best things you can do is treat people the way you want to treated. for example I'll hold a door open for someone regardless of gender because I got there first. usually that person will say thank you and if there is a second set of doors they return the favor. it's a small thing but it makes an impression on people
look guys I see your points..but my dawg is rocking those high heels
