I'm not holding the door for you because you're a woman and I'm a sexist pig forcing you into a gender role, I'm holding it for you because I think you're too stupid to operate a door by yourself.

See, I just hold the door because it's polite not to let it swing back into the face of the person behind you. What irks me more are women who think because they're women they /don't/ have to do the most basic polite thing.

I like to bow and use sweeping gestures when I open doors for people. It confuses them.

For reals?

I let people hold doors for me anytime, and thank them for it.

I hold the door for people regardless of gender. I was taught it was a polite thing to do.

Same here.

I think some people are just looking for an argument. If you hadn't held the door, it would have been something else.

Me, too. I was taught that, when someone holds a door open for you, to smile and say "Thank you" because it is a polite gesture. Especially if my arms are full of books. :-)
