while we all know the pc mechanism of how respect works, it has been my experience that men overall, receive more respect just by virtue of their gender.
i'm talking about respect from dr's and other higher ups.
now, maybe it's because men 'tend' to be more assertive, less wishy washy and therefore, command it...
whereas women 'tend' to be the opposite.
yet if a woman does assert herself, she's labeled a b****.
double standards still exist.
before tempers flare, i'm speaking generally...not every man, not every woman...generally speaking.
my experience, my observations.
