I almost feel bad ranting in this sub, because we understand how to treat men with courtesy. Clearly, I'm preaching to the choir on this!
I spend a good bit of time at the gym. A few weeks ago I was watching a trainer (late 20's) with his client. She was your CLASSIC upper middle class ENTITLED housewife. Late 40's early 50's? He's making her do some glute work. She finishes her set mind you she's barely pushing any weight around, gets up and look at him with disgust and says "I'm done with this, I can't take it anymore". Mind you, this was said with ANGER at him. Not "oh I'm tired, next time". It was almost threatening. She had clearly reached the end of her rope and did not know how to handle herself appropriately. Like it's his fault she has to do some "hard work". She then walks away from him and leaves him standing there. I felt so bad for him, he was clearly shaken I thought about going up and saying something but figured the LAST thing he needs now is another woman in his face, whether positive or negative. The disrespect was baffling to me. But then, I wasn't surprised. These women are accustomed to getting whatever they want, whenever they want. I understand specifically personal trainers have to take some serious negative behavior dealing with clients. You are trying to help people who can't seem to help themselves, and they are paying you for it.
I see women treating men poorly time and time again. Whether it's cutting them off in line at the grocery store, or at their places of employment (happens to my husband on a weekly basis). They try to assert themselves because that's what modern feminism has taught them, but instead they come off acting like irrational children. I was taught to be "seen and not heard". On top of that I spent a good deal of my childhood in marital arts where any kind of disrespect was NOT tolerated. Sure I had some moments in my teenage years, but overall I try to treat people especially men fairly. Most guys have always bended over backwards for me, even when I was acting like a bitch. No wonder we have so many guys on RP dealing with anger and all these other negative emotions.
We treat them like shit.
