    Not a negative, but it is funny that she'd make the comment that the "rude" guys must never get any nookie.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    worse side of having mannerisms is you attract older ladies + if you are a kinky in language by nature, they will be too.

    Needs a master to handle that politely

    You aren't opening doors to people. You're opening doors to "women". So, it's not about the individual, but the group.
    To the individual, it is about them. That is what you miss by your self-centered perspective. By denying respect to only those you achieve a certain status with, you are effectively snubbing everyone else.

    What's your definition of respect? Everybody's different in the modern world of luuuuve.

    Adhering to social mannerisms prevents one from getting laid?

    I have now concluded that cultural norms are harmful to society because they render people offspring-less.

    There are just varying social values held by different people. I would say that you make friends with people who's values are similar to yours. Everyone has someone to be with, everyone has someone that they will conflict with. No one is correct.

    Actually I wasn't necessarily agree with BlackCat on it all.

    I pride myself of being very impartial in matters of respect. I simply don't equate holding the door for you as respect BECAUSE it's not something you'd do to a man. So the social etiquette is already snubbing people. It's creating a certain hierarchy and useless protocol. It's dividing.

    Recognizing difference is not the same as creating hierarchies.

    Saying that one does not believe in this good manners or that people must take one as he is, for the sake of being real, that's nothing more but a pathetic excuse.


    It is sad indeed that society today offers the perfect opportunity to disguise one's indisposition of practising and even acknowledging good manners.
    Years ago, such behaviour would have been instantly deemed as inappropriate.
    I would think that one should be self-aware enough to realize that they had best reach out to prevent the door from hitting them when they clearly see it closing.

    Table manners are useful in that eating with one's hands is an awfully unsanitary way to eat, yes. However, concerning courtesy, the very fact that it's taken for granted these days is negative. People need to learn to appreciate it when given, and sadly, most do not learn that without the absence of it.

    On another note, I find it disappointing that most have turned this into a dichotomy.

    Not holding a door open for someone should never be classified the same as slamming one on a person. Yet they are given the same label of "bad" manners.

    Is indifference really such a malevolent sin?
