It was a bit of a surprise and wholly uncalled for, as I do this for both women AND men. If I'm at the door, and it's not automatic, and there's someone coming up behind me, I hold the door for them.

I've always thought it of it as a point of etiquette, or respect.

It think it's important to distinguish between a school of people who were raised into believing in inherent superiority, and people who were just taught "this is polite behavior"
While there may be a few who see it as that way, there's so many more who appreciate it

Anyone who see's that as bad, should be grouped along with those who don't want SGR and basically ignored!
