Don’t Open The Door For Me!
Often times, women say that they want a man that will treat him like their one and only princess. Being treated like a queen means that a woman will be treated like she’s the decedent of royalty. However, I see many women with the thought process of Daria walking around. She’s a freshman at Laketon State University walking to her 8 AM history class in the Breedwell Building. Dontrel, a home-trained sophomore going to the same building, sees her going to open the door and opens it for her. It’s safe to say that Daria didn’t appreciate it. She even had a few choice words for him.
Daria stopped walking and shot her a nasty look. “I got it.”
Dontrel smiled. “Naw, it’s cool. You can go ahead.”
“I said I got it! Damn!”
Dontrel raised his hands, “What’s your issue?”
She rolled her eyes. “My issue is that I told you that I had the door but you insisted that you get it. Didn’t I tell you I have it? I can open the door for myself! I don’t need you to come running when I’m approaching the door like I’m some weak little girl!”
Dontrel shrugged his shoulders. “Alright, whatever.”
She sighed and went to open the door herself. Dontrel shook his head and walked through the door a few seconds after her, in disbelief. I think no one can argue that Daria was clearly disrespectful to Dontrel. However, there’s a reason why she reacted like that. It’s even seen in her response to him: “I can open the door for myself!” Let’s look into Daria’s philosophy that made her react to Dontrel’s chivalry in such a way.
“Women can do anything that men can do, even the things that they’re supposed to do because they have ‘manners’”
How I handled dude when I was walking to my history class was not wrong! If anything, he needs to fall back. Like I told him, I can open the door for myself. I don’t need any man to open the door for me. I don’t expect it either. Why would I when I never had any guy in my life consistently open doors for me in my life? Sure, I’d always go in before my dad but that’s my dad! How can I expect dudes who can’t even stay faithful to the girl that they’re with care enough to open the door for me?
This isn’t some cute relationship movie! Straight up, I’ve gotten the door slammed in my face walking behind some of these dudes when I have three books in my arm plus my purse and they let the door straight let the door close right in my face. I’ve been on dates with dudes that would be waiting at the door of wherever we’re going as I opened the door by myself!
Women can do anything that men can do, even the things that they’re supposed to do because they have “manners”. Boy please!
