I, and a lot of people, hold the door for men and women, and have never had anybody complain. I think the number of women who would actually complain about the practice are very few and far between and very possibly figments of Daily Mail readers imagination.

I was reading it on twitter and plenty feminists were huffing and puffing about it.
The trouble is, it makes it a minefield for men if you happen to open a door for a radical feminist and she gives you a coating for an innocent act.

Laughing out loud

That's not real life! It's made up entirely of narcissistic pompous self-aggrandising out of touch idiots!

I think the human race will die out. Men will be so afraid to ask women out in case they're accused of sexual harassment. The workplace used to be the place where most people met their partners. Now I suppose men are scared to look sideways at the women they work with.

That time of year again when all you can hear every time you step outside is the pathetic screech of the newborn seagulls taking months to learn how to fly and f**k off. I'm sure they do it on purpose so they can roost at the folks house for as long as possible.

Occasionally get them, BUT the ones that f**k me off EVERY year at about this time are the pigeons sitting on the tops of chimney pots or TV aerials and coo-cooing to each other for about 2 hours from 5 in the morning, and to make it worse they stop for maybe half a minute and you think "Ahhh, at last" as you snuggle into your pillow, then f**k me they start up again. Perverted Bastards!!
