I have read some of the comments on here where so many are about the door, but you are right it’s not about the door. It’s gestures, looks, mindsets, but if we confuse general kindness regardless of gender, aren’t we no better? We then could be possibly offending someone else for just simply being kind. I am very much what I like to call an equalist, my husband shares in the same belief and we are raising our children with those beliefs as well. What that means to me, is that no one will treat me how I don’t want to be treated. I have that power and because of that, I can accept kindness from a man or a woman freely and not try to look for something that may or may not be there. My husband opens the car door for me every time we are in the same car, he feels that is a way to show me he cares, he knows I am capable of opening the door but chooses to go out of his way to show me if anything, a sign of respect. In turn, I open the door to whatever building we are walking into, for the same reason or
