It’s a Matter of Respect.

(oo)What you want
(oo) Baby, I got
(oo) What you need
(oo) Do you know I got it?
(oo) All I’m askin’
(oo) Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit) when you get home
(just a little bit) mister (just a little bit)

The famous lyrics and song of Aretha Franklin’s Respect have been running through my head since the NeW Gentlemen’s Showcase arrived.

Think about it-that’s what the showcase is all about-respect between the sexes.

Danelle’s last post on how ladies should treat gentlemen was great, because it’s an important part of how the sexes should treat each other these days. It’s all about respect. šŸ™‚

Being a gentleman, or a man in society, doesn’t mean he has to always open the door for women or always surprise her or always do everything for her. Being a lady, or a woman in society, doesn’t mean she has to take a submissive role and wait for a man to come and do something nice for her.

Both men and women should want to and can do nice things for each other.

Yes, it’s the 21st century and things have changed since we fought for women’s rights….I am thankful to those women who fought for what we have today but it doesn’t mean that we are completely equal….and it doesn’t mean men and women should be equal either.

Men and women are biologically and inherently different. Because of our differences, we approach situations differently-like relationships and the way we treat other men and women.

Respecting our differences, respecting the sexes, respecting each other….leads to healthier relationships in society…leading to a more respectful society.

Try and show someone a little respect today-your neighbor, a friend, a stranger…no matter who they are or what they believe in…we all deserve a little respect.

Oh (sock it to me, sock it to me,
sock it to me, sock it to me)
A little respect (sock it to me, sock it to me,
sock it to me, sock it to me)
Whoa, babe (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)
I get tired (just a little bit)
Keep on tryin’ (just a little bit)
