Feminists/leftist often demand people respect others for whom they are.

Is respect something that should be given to everyone? Or is it something you have to earn?

i mean i kind of respect feminists for taking a stand for themselves and preaching about gender equality , that respect only goes when they cross the line and do something extreme

Respect is earned, as proven by this image:

It's not that hard to treat people as people. Have some decency for your fellow man.

lol...this is actually a nice example. In the virtual world you feel gratification when you earn respect...why? because you worked "hard" for something that has value. What value would respect have if it were given out for free to everyone in the virtual world or the real one? no value at all.

I'm just gonna go ahead and assume you got this talking point from Jordan Petersen.

Other than GTA being a terrible example in which you usually commit crime to earn the respect that of others (and also, video games are not hard work), respect can often be unearned. You cannot say to me that you have never had irrational respect for someone before. I know I certainly have - still do - and I sometimes have irrational distaste for others as well. Most of the time, respect is earned, but respect can be really random, and is not just based on the character you make, but also much of what you're born with.

I think your main issue is your desire to put people into extremely large, vast groups. There is more than one kind of leftist, and there is more than one kind of feminist, and not all of them believe that people must be nice to them at all times.

Most people are just saying that they want a fair chance. If you want to go far in life, be respectful towards those that deserve no respect at all. You'll make more friends that way, and they could change for the better.

Or don't. Being an ******** can be fun sometimes.

Not everyone deserves respect. Respect is earned. If everyone went around mindlessly respecting everyone respect itself would lose all value. Imagine it like printing more currency; the more you print the less valuable is becomes.

....lol love it! ...logic is universal!!! This guy is honestly starting to grow on me. He likens respect to currency. Its a nice comparison. what value would currency hold if it were given out for free to anyone who demands it? it would hold no value whatsoever. He also notices a contradiction in this whole "respect me for who I am" argument. Respecting people for whom they are and the choices that they make requires you to respect me for whom I am and the choices that I make. It requires you to respect me for not respecting you. Respecting people for whom they are is a self defeating contradiction...lol this guy is genius.

I feel like this kind of has two meanings. Aren’t having respect for someone and treating someone with respect different things?

Respect = admiration
Showing respect = courtesy, being polite

Respect is more of a feeling while showing respect is action. My answer is yes, everyone deserves to be treated with respect.

If someone shows you respect, you should be a decent human and respect them back. If someone does not, then you don’t either.

Did you notice the quotation marks around the word "hard" in my previous comment? These imply that I do not agree that its hard work.

In this game you earn respect by committing crime. Do you get respect the moment you turn the game on or do you have to complete tasks to earn respect? You have to complete tasks. This gives the respect value. If it were given out for free, the moment the player logged onto the game it would hold no value. That was my point.

When we give respect to people who do not deserve it our respect is misplaced/wrong, i feel.

My "desire" is the opposite of this. I want people to be treated as individuals. Each person must earn respect to receive respect. The idea that we should respect people for whom they are is what puts people into large groups e.g. the idea promoted by feminists that all women deserve respect...etc. wouldn't you agree?

There is more than one kind of leftist, and there is more than one kind of feminist, and not all of them believe that people must be nice to them at all times.
They all share a belief in the same fundamental principles. There are many types of Christians. They all without exception believe in Jesus.

Thats not what they are saying my friend. They don't want a fair chance. They want people to give them respect for doing disrespectful things. That in your opinion is fair?

(Original post by munchm_)

My goodness. Respecting people for doing disrespectful things is promoting and encouraging their wrongs.

How can people change for the better when you are giving them admiration for doing wrong?

I give a provisional amount of respect to people regardless of any initial factor until they prove one way or the other if I should continue to do so. It's a simple approach that has served me well throughout my life.

I don't want to treat people with decency. You need to respect me for who I am. I hope you see the flaw in your logic.
