I wanted to know how many of you guys hold doors open for ladies etc..?
As for ladies Do you like it when they do acts such as these?

I don't call boys.... It is just something I don't do...anywhos I was talking with someone about this and it lead to talking about holding doors, giving up chairs, avoiding "certain situations" etc... then I was told I needed to rebel, I was being bound by invisible people, screw everyone over thirty, and I am a fail teenager..... B) I love people

Well I do; but I might do it for men as well. Courtesy is one of the things that makes life easier and more pleasant for everyone

Modern culture paints rebellion and discourtesy as freedom. In fact it tries to lead you into slavery.

Everyone who sins is a slave to sin. "Do you not know that if you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness?" - Romans 6:16
[Jesus] "whose service is perfect freedom." - Anglican Book of Common Prayer
"Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft." - 1 Samuel 15:23

Everyone around me always does these things...I thought it was odd. Such as making a lady walk on the side of the street with the cars...

Oh thanks I am going to the camera store tonight to buy film and then I should have new ones soon.

Traditionally, the man would walk on the right, so as to keep his sword arm free.

I see you have a lot of black and white shots. Do you use B&W film or are they scanned and then altered?

For myself I use a digital camera, which means I don't have to worry about the cost of film and processing. I can afford to take 30 shots and throw all but one away. Here are a few of mine.

A picture is worth a thousand words...

Great pictures, both of you.

Tico, what is F i l m? :blink:

Your question about how I treat women is tough because I don't really treat them any different than anyone else and this is a cultural thing, I guess. I do try to be polite and open doors for people and I would consider myself polite but I don't pay attention to any etiquette.

Boarding a crowded bus in Korea, I had an old woman, loaded down with shopping bags vacate her seat for me. Each of us thought the other was a bit crazy.

I was driving in Greece (on Levkas) and saw an old couple and a donkey trudging up a long hill. The man was on the donkey and the wife walking behind :blink:

There is a long cultural tradition in the West, of which the chivalric attitudes demonstrated in the Arthurian tales are the peak. But they are based on the bible, ultimately

Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her to sanctify her by cleansing her with the washing of the water by the word, so that he may present the church to himself as glorious - not having a stain or wrinkle, or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.  In the same way husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.  For no one has ever hated his own body but he feeds it and takes care of it, just as Christ also does the church, for we are members of his body.

It's not worth the risk. On the bus I'd rather see a pregnant woman standing than a fat girl sitting down, crying

1.) "There are bandits in these hills. Keep a sharp eye out."
2.) "I mean it! You're not coming out of there 'til you fix my bike."
3.) "I need exercise." "Shoot honey, I need it worse'n you. But go ahead."
4.) "'BYOB' means 'Bring your own beer - not your wife's."
5.) Maybe the term 'wild women' wasn't just made up.

LOL, the captions put alongside those pics could be classic. But seriously, just on their own is a painful, but funny sight.
