    I went to collect my Daughter from Brownies and there was a lot of wee lassies doing their Brownie promise, so the place was dead busy with parents and stuff. Loads of people not just doing the collecting thing but watching them doing their promises and us doing the clapping and supporting and stuff.

    Anyway, I was there early to pick her up, because I always am. So I sits down to enjoy the festivities. Of course loads of folk start to turn up and I am like, there you go missus wummin, have a seat. She says thats OK and I'm like, no way get yerself sat down.

    Anyhow, from what I can see I'm the only chap who does this. So I have to ask you younger dudes, have I in fact turned into a sexist without knowing. It's just the way I was brought up, manners and so forth.

    I'm particularly interested in a burds perspective on this one.

    Not at all. You were being considerate.

    It could have gone either way for you. Sadly there are women out there who would have accused you of being sexist for letting them sit down. I would be quietly shocked and pleased that someone did that for me, because it doesn't happen very often. Women like being treated in a chivalrous manner, but for women my age it doesn't really happen because men are afraid of being called sexist, or just don't consider it.*

    Do I make sense???

    To not have behaved in such a manner would have been totally foreign to me. I couldn't have done anything else, whatever anyone else would have thought.

    Two other absolutes for me. I could never walk thro' a door before a woman, I would always hold it open. I also couldn't walk on the inside of the pavement. When crossing the road I always make sure I am on the outside when we get to the other side.

    To me both of these are unspoken, one simply does them in an almost unconscious way.

    Perfect sense, btw.

    I don't walk through a door before a woman, and I hold it open for everyone, even though I just get an annoyed grunt every time I do it.
