    They think it is treating women like weaklings and second class citizens that men have to take care of.

    My grandmother and the many various strangers I have held the door for didnt think so. I hold it open for families usually.

    The first time I heard the term "male chauvinist" was when, as a kid vacationing in Minnesota, I held a door open for a woman.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    I honestly do try pretty hard to be respectful. I dont think it is a good idea to shame folks for something they arent.

    It's just one more step in the liberal agenda to destroy the nuclear family.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Since when did being a complete jerk equal masculinity? Both men and women(and girls and boys) are capable of being kind or cruel and those aren't feminine or masculine traits! Either gender has people who choose to be evil jerks, and both genders have people who choose to be kind and gentle. Oh, and meek does not mean weak. Meekness is more not picking certain battles because it's not worth it. Meek is strength under control. A man should look to Jesus to see what true masculinity looks like.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    To nuke the nuclear family.

    Also: Bovine faeces to your claim. In my entire life not once have I ever heard it suggested by any of the tens of thousands of hours worth of liberal and leftist sources that I've listened to and read that it was a desirable goal to destroy the nuclear family. Your claim is just utterly wacko.

    Although I myself from my own anthropology reading would point out to you that an extended family structure has numerous advantages over the nuclear family structure, and that the nuclear family structure is historically relatively new (early 20th century). But I suspect an extended family structure isn't what you're against. Many cultures throughout history have thrived with a massive variety of family structures.

    Great!

    However, as such, many older conservatives would thus view you as having been brainwashed by the SJWs. Back in their day, men were real men (i.e. jerks).
