Subject: RE: Let's update 'Sensitive New Age Guys'
I think people shoud be treated with respect, male or female. Although I tend to hold more doors for women than men, I think that's the result of my childhood when my grandmom drummed into to me that kids stand when ladies or older people enter rooms, men give their seats to ladies on public transit vehicles, and men remove their hats when ladies are present. I am a dunce when it comes to combustion engines. Had a farm gal explain to me how to change oil and spark plugs. Didn't bother me a bit. I have on the odd occasion had females give me dirty looks for holding a door for them, but not often. And in 56 years I can only recall being glared at once for offering my seat to a lady. Hell, I cried when ET 'died'. If that makes me a SNAG, I can live with that.
