    Men and Women should learn to appreciate and love the differences that were made between us, not hate them

    Why construct a new gendered morality?

    It's a fair point, because if a guy messed around with my daughter and acted all player like when he was with her, i'd do some ****ed up stuff.

    Is that all from the book, or was it your personal perspective?

    So you would try and **** your mum or sister?

    So you wouldnt even consider how attractive you are to the women you want? and not even consider making yourself attractive for them?

    Mix of both, I learnt a lot from the book !
    Whoever mentioned that gender shouldn't come into terms of respect has probably got it spot on!

    I really don't get this, it only works if everyone in the world is the same. If someone is a complete *****, then they shouldn't be treated nicely regardless of the fact that I would like to be treated nicely.

    People should (and do) treat others how they think they deserve to be treated.

    Which in my opinion is bang on the money. Problems only arise when people think wrongly, such as nice people being treated poorly.

    Nope, still applies:
    "Treat others how you wish to be treated"
    - therefore if you treat people like a complete *****, you'll get that treatment back.

    People should (and do) treat others how they think they deserve to be treated.
    That pretty much boils down to "Treat others how you want" - people hold all sorts of stupid prejudices. How you *think* someone deserves to be treated can be hideously unfair and wrong.

    Some people think that homosexuals are inhuman, filthy perverts and deserve to be punished like criminals. Therefore by your logic, they should treat homosexuals how they think they deserve to be treated?

    Fair enough. As I was writing my post I did think to myself "hold on, I've always taken this to be correct, what's going on?". I think I had a bit of momentary missunderstanding of the statement lol.

    I mean more like "treat others how they deserve". Which as I did say breaks down when people's morally 'wrong' way of thinking is involved. This is kind of what the judical system operates by (where an objective 'wrong' is defined), as opposed to your statement. I guess the above "treat others how you wish to be treated" also breaks down when people want to be treated poorly through guilt/masochism or the like.

    I may be talking rubbish at 2.36am, and probably best ignored :P

    EDIT: I really want to rephrase my post. I am just saying that instead of "treat others as you would wish to be treated" it should be "treat others as they deserve to be treated", because the former involves subjectivity and the latter involves objectivity. The problem arises when subjectivity creeps into the latter. Gah.

    i think people in general should treat others with dignity and respect, because of the simple fact that they're human, not because they're a man or a women.

    it's that we're human that matters, and nothing else. i may be a speciest here, but i don't mind. you treat every human the same, regardless of gender or any other factor (which, okay, if they're a rapist or murderer then i would completely support you if you tortured them, but other than that we should all be treated the same).
