I don't agree with it, though only with our current environment variables. If women want to be treated as equals, then they should be treated as
equals, period. This means that all of the "perks" go away, along with all of the bad things. However, we have kind of a double standard in western
society. For instance, women want to get equal pay, yet societal norms still dictate that the man be the head of the house-hold. Men are also required
by law to act as head of household through the family courts. Women also demand to be hired equally, yet they want the standards to be dropped to
accommodate them. Now I know it's not all women, but it is enough of them to where it remains acceptable for these double standards.
Also, it is still the societal norm that men have to initiate procreative relationships with women, yet we can be imprisoned or sued for doing so. Men
are literally walking on egg-shells around women, when it is human nature to find the opposite sex attractive.
Women are demanding to be treated equal (and rightly so), yet they are demanding to retain all of the good things about traditional gender roles. You
can't have it both ways or at least you shouldn't.
Retaining my southern charm, I have the habit of always opening doors for women and like courtesies, though in this day in age, I can be sued for so.
However, if I don't then I'm seen as rude and can even be sued for not doing so. It's a lose-lose for us. I guess this is why many men, even
successful and good looking men, are looking to Asia and Eastern Europe for women.
