I would guess, when women started jumping down their throats for the merest thing.

I always -always- thank a gentleman for holding a door. Too many women forget that it's ladies who make or break the "gentle" in men.

A priest of his mind set would be more damaging to the Church and its people then just about any thing else one could think of.

I don't think he will have to even consider remaining single as you advise. The choice will be forced on him by all the women who will rightly turn a blind eye to him and what little he has to offer.
I believe you are correct and it is all unfortunate.

Plus as a priest he'd have to talk to women all day long...

This is interesting-- though I suspect long term there are some adverse effects for men as well (though the bad effects for women are quite evident).

That's what someone else alluded to.

I'll bet the two go hand in hand.

Marge, kindly explain what you mean.

This isn't another one of those ludicrous stereotypes, is it?

When women's lib became popular, some men, me included, became reluctant to do things like opening doors, because somebody might consider it sexist, or give me a hard time about it.

I am working to break that mindset, but I picked it up fairly early in life, so it is somewhat ingrained.

Take a blow torch to it, Richard, and cut it out.
You can safely open doors for the majority of American females now. And if you like, I can write you an excuse for any militants you encounter.
"Please excuse Richard for thinking you were a lady. He won't make that mistake again."

You could come to Utah for vacation. The women here expect guys to open doors. In fact, occasionally the lazy or germaphobic among us try to time it so that a guy will open the door for us. Not that I would ever do something like that. laughing
