One of my more fun things to do to mess with male colleagues' heads: nip past them and hold the door open when they've proven to have a habit of holding the door open for women. It takes a couple of goes before they grasp I'm actually being polite ;)

I've only experienced this once but I did hold the door open for a woman who got all huffy and haughty and proclaimed her equality. I told her I fully supported equality, that I held open doors for everyone regardless of gender, age or ethnicity because it's simply common courtesy. I then let go of the door and let it hit her.

I'm an equal opportunity gentleman/jerk. I'll hold the door for my colleagues when in the mood to be polite. Doesn't really matter what gender they are.

I've noticed women very eager to help me with doors, things I'm carrying, etc but ONLY if they know me. I find this understandable, though.

Im going to be really honest now and I hope no one will get mad or something.

That Thicke song and video is one of the most *i have potty mouth* up things I ever seen in music.

Then you clearly haven't heard many songs or seen many videos in your apparently sheltered life. Both the song and video are so pedestrian and tame that I'm still amazed there was any "outcry" at all.

Joseph: The existence of greater crmes does not make lesser crimes non-criminal / non-existent :)

I still fail to see the "crime" in this song, especially over others. And the crimes committed against the other gender are under-reported or ignored outright. Just saying... ;)

Now... let's not get Marcus too confused.

That's not an issue with feminism, that's just further proof that the current social set-up doesn't work.

Who said it was an issue with feminism? Human beings are a flawed species. No social set-up will ever work because of that.

Have you seen the video that got "censored" where women run around topless? For no appearent reason. Not to promote cancer or something.

Also, I do open doors for women and men. And there is women who enjoy some good old chivalry :) I met a few at the institute of history at uni. People come in many shapes and forms. To know who or what they want will be impossible. But I open doors to everyone.

Yeah, who the heck would censor that kind of video. No apparent reason at all indeed :look:

I suspect the only time I show true "gentlemanly" manners is when pitching in where my superior physical strength actually makes a difference between a trivial task and hard work. Heavy lifting etc.

But thats what I mean, If one see the uncensored version. One notice even more how far this thing is going.

Should we blame Thicke? Or the company he manage to sign up with and cannot say "no" to without harsh counter measures from lawyers? Someone linked me one of his older songs. It was just another classic "Tears, hearts and without you I die" kinda song.

I'm honestly not sure where you're going Marcus so...

Point is, as I see it, some people just like to whine and complain and take offence. A lot of things offend me but I just keep my thoughts to myself or share with a few friends. I see absolutely nothing offensive in Thicke's song, at least no more so than I find offence at women ripping on men. Ah well, live and let live. Or whatever.
