My mother raised a gentleman, and my sister is a lady. And if you want to bring mothers into to this, then it’s obvious from the fact that you find compliments insulting that your parents were incapable of instilling proper values in you. I pity your significant other as that person tries to figure out whether what they are about to say is a compliment, or if your new definition of “empowerment” has twisted it into an insult.
Chivalry is about honor, courtesy, and self sacrifice. These principles are universally good. It’s the same principle as giving your last beer to your friend. Sacrificing your comfort or pleasure for someone else is nice. Get over yourself.
LOL LOL LOL Liberals… She’s a woman, that’s called Chivalry… I do it regularly for women who are friends and family, while I myself am getting wet… Because that’s what real men do… We take the rain!
Real men can take the rain? You can take it back to the fucking 1950’s along with your gender roles you pig
Awww did I hurt somebody’s feewings?
Nope but you are a sexist fuckwit, I mean it’s not hurt feelings you’re just a tool is all
And you can clearly tell a tool from one conversation on tumblr, Being a gentleman does not translate to being sexist. It doesn’t mean that the man isn’t fully aware that a woman cannot hold her own umbrella. Its just that he cares enough about her to do it for her, to be kind and open the door, to help her out of the car if she wants it. It’s called being a nice and great man. That is the mark of a great man, who respects the woman he’s dating and wants to do nice things for her. And as someone who knows freeplanetickettonorthkorea so much better than you do, I can tell you he is anything but sexist.
Yes, according to feminists, chivalry is sexist and evil. I guess they would rather that men treat all women with disrespect and disregard. (They want this because that’s how men treat THEM because of their elitist attitudes). As for myself, I will treat women with the respect and deference owed to them by their special place in society; namely the people who make men’s (well, most men) lives complete.
Any woman who is not willing to accept respect and deference from men, doesn’t deserve it.
Imagine if every time a president trampled our Constitutional rights (which he swore to uphold) those serving in the military, who swear to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, removed him from office.
That’d make them pay attention to the law of the land, now wouldn’t it?
I have said for years that the way to make Presidents (and congressmen) more responsive to the desires of the nation is to slash the protective services budget.
People keep saying Obama isn’t responsible for what happened in Benghazi because he couldn’t have known what was going on.
A number of years ago I was the General Manager of a small business of about 30 employees. I hated it and I was awful at it. I ended up getting fired. I hated the job because I was sick and tired of having to take responsibility for a bunch of people, most were part time and didn’t speak English. (That should narrow down the industry…)
They didn’t care, they always cut corners, and no matter what I did, they wouldn’t change. The point is that I got fired because of what my employees did. It was MY RESPONSIBILITY to understand the problem and to fix it, and I didn’t do that, and it cost me my career.
This is true of any organization, from a sports team to a multinational corporation, to a national government. You are ALWAYS responsible for EVERYONE beneath you.
I learned my lesson. I’m not a good manager, and I will never accept another management position. It’s just a shame that the nation isn’t willing to hold the President to the same level of responsibility as a lowly small business manager is held.
You want the big office? You get the big responsibility. Accept it or GTFO.
High School Student gives a lesson to its teacher at Duncanville
why didn’t that class applaud
I am in absolute awe of this kid.
My new favorite person.
I saw an interview with him last night. Turns out the kid is a dropout who returned back with a fervor to apply himself and complete high school.
For those that said he shouldn’t have used the word “bitching”…he used the word in rebuttal to the teacher having used the same word to disparage what he was doing before the rant was recorded. The students also corroborated that story.
I’m very proud of this young man. Our school system is broken because of terrible teachers like this that are just passing along information to earn a paycheck instead of actually engaging their students. We can, of course, thank the Teachers Unions, the worthless Department of Education, and failed standardized applications and testing for its decline. We’ve known the system has been broken for a long time, but now the students are becoming aware.
I agree with this kid 100%, I went to a high school where they taught us mostly that way, I am upset with the education I had received, having taught myself more on every subject on my own than in 12 years of school…
Reminds me if of when I was in HS. I called my “Civics” teacher out on her indoctrination techniques. I read my textbook in advance, found everything wrong with it, and then questioned her on it after researching it myself first. She finally stopped calling on me when I raised my hand because she knew what was coming. She wasn’t lazy like this teacher apparently is, she was a full-blown socialist apparatchik.
That was a great year. And a long time ago.
My History and English Lit teachers were phenomenal though.
Just so you know, this is not an open forum. I am a proud American, I love my country and despise socialists no matter whether you call yourself "liberal", "progressive", "independent", or any other by-word for socialist. This country was built on the backs of people acting in their own self-interest. If you don't like it, I have no time for you and will simply ignore you.
