One Woman Tweeted That Men Should Stop Holding Doors Open for Women and Compares It To ‘Putting a Dog on a Leash’
On 7th November 2020
One woman wrote on Twitter that men who hold doors open for women view them as incompetent. She said that men should stop doing it and that it can be compared to "bucking the seat belt of a toddler / putting a leash on a dog.” But it looks like people especially women are not so pleased with this controversial opinion of her.

It's sad that blatant inequalities still exist between man and woman and the good part is that people are talking about it. But this particular controversial opinion of one woman was not so appreciated by other people especially women.
WHO reports that thirty-five percent of the population of women have faced some kind of violence
World Health Organization (WHO) states that around 1 in 3 women worldwide has experienced physical and/or sexual violence from their male peers – that makes up about thirty-five percent of the population of women.
This doesn't even include the harassment women face on the streets
This doesn't include the catcalling women face on the streets. There are also so many women out there that are trapped in their homes by their very own partners.
Catcalling and being trapped is also harassment and it still makes so many women feel uncomfortable and unsafe
This world needs to understand that women being made to feel scared, helpless, and intimidated by men is not okay.
The sad part is that it has been happening for so long now
But time has changed, we’re living in 2020 now, the younger generation has started to speak out about this unnecessary violence.
The #metoo movement that started in 2017 has given the power to many women.
They are now speaking against the sexual and physical violence they faced.
Women are now standing up against it and calling out those responsible – including some prominent figures.
It's not about being women, whoever you are you have every right to speak up and say no to being treated in such a terrible and dehumanizing way
Awareness campaigns are making an impact and many people are standing against the violence
But despite all this effort to fight back against the injustice, it is clear that it is still very much a problem.
Recently, one woman tweeted a very controversial opinion claiming that she is fed up with men treating women differently
The woman tweeted that she hates it when men hold doors open for women
This sparked some reaction on the internet, people didn't appreciate her views
The strong reaction against her opinion even led Twitter to suspend her account.
That is what she 'tweeted'
But user @UnbiasedKatie wrote,
“Dear Men: Stop holding the door open for Women when entering a store. This implies that you believe Women are incapable of doing things for themselves & that you view them as incompetent. This can be compared to bucking the seat belt of a toddler / putting a leash on a dog.”
That's how people reacted
People want her to know the difference between showing respect and harassing someone
What are your views? Are you angry like these people or think what @UnbiasedKatie wrote was right?
