Okay this is no knock on Sen. Obama, but I HATE it when men put their hands behind women...
Advertisements [?]and steer them around. Ron and Nancy were tops at this.

From today's NYT:

"They walked out onto a riser Mr. Obama in his trademark white shirt and powder-blue tie, Mrs. Clinton in a blue pantsuit. He guided her about the platform, his hand in the square of her back."

I know he's trying to be polite, but this is one example of Old World Manners that really bothers me. How do women here feel about it?

19. It annoys me
When I was female it felt patronizing like I was fragile or something or unable to walk unassisted.I don't like being led,steered or herded anywhere.

I tend to be very self directing in the way I walk I walk ahead of men or beside never behind unless it's just where I ended up in a line,so most men didn't DARE do that hand on the back to me thing. One did one time and I got irritated I asked him what in the hell are you so pushy about? and he removed his hand immediately.

It's a mild form of domination.That's why it irritates me.


What a bunch of clowns.

What idiots. I love being treated like a lady. These feminazis are making life difficult for the rest of us.
