I'm amazed at where the world is going now, especially with kids re all this. (Not all by any means though).
I remember once holding a door open for a woman (my age) who accused me of wanting to look at her arse.
Currently, I'm unfortunately working with a group of female civilian social workers as the sole Military member, and male. I had one woman deride me for use of the term 'Ladies' and another give me a hard time for using the term 'Women'. Seriously, bloody amazing. The one who hates the term ladies made a scene in public 2 days ago during a discussion on why we don't have females in our Special Forces. She won't be given the opportunity to do that again.
You just have to be yourself, and if they don't like what is reasonable or courteous behavior to you, that's their issue!
Best wishes all.
