Does this phrase show our good manner?
Just heard this phrase being cited, and something just hit me. I deem myself to be the old-kind of gentleman. I always try to open doors for my fiancée and I like to treat her like my queen.
It would never cross my mind to mistreat her or to any other woman. I never felt that I had to say it. The same thing goes through my head if I’m in a fight with a male.
Maybe because I’m thirty or maybe because I was never such a physical type of person, but punching or hitting someone seems so distant to me.
I never thought of hitting with fists rather than words.
To be honest, I don’t know what irritates me the most. Is it the clear sexism or the whole aggressive nature of it all?
It seems crazy to me that in our day and age with all the equality and intellectual talk this phase is still used.
I do understand that men abusing of women is still very much a current issue. Nonetheless, we fail to see is that even men get abused by their partners but this goes well under the radar.
I never heard a woman say I would never abuse of a man, and it would sound wrong if she did.
It should never cross our minds, let alone have a cliché phrase for it.
