    The issue of men carrying things up the stains/feats of strength is interesting too.  I wonder if the strip club hires male “door girls” or expects the door girls to do their share of bouncing…

    I had to answer sometimes because of one main thing: carrying tons of bags/heavy stuff on the subway and feeling entitled to a seat. Seriously, when I get on the subway with four giant bags from Target and not one person offers me a seat, I get annoyed.  I think anyone carrying heavy things should be offered a seat, but I think as a woman I need it a bit more just because in general women do not build upper body strength as easily as men.

    As far as free entrance to bars/free drinks, I don’t feel entitled to it but I certainly don’t turn it down when it happens.

    I certainly feel a sense of entitlement as a woman. That’s why I don’t understand a lot of feminists who complain about how bad they have it. Western culture teaches people to be more polite to women. If a man hits another man it’s hardly a crime. If a man hits a woman all hell breaks loose. When I go out for a meal with a man I expect him to pay 99% of the time. It’s considered shameful to curse at a woman (although once again if it was a man saying it to another man nobody would notice). I can get free drinks anywhere i want just for smiling. Men give up their seats for me. It goes on and on. Women are so entitled and they don’t even realize it.

    Bars and clubs have never been my scene so I’m wholly unfamiliar with cover charges.

    The one thing I feel super entitled to is pretty bras. I’ve got a small band size with a large cup size and if I have to put up with these obnoxiously large boobs I deserve to be able to buy bras in colors other than black, white and nude dammit! It is soooo frustrating to be looking at bras online, click my size, and watch all the pretty color options become unavailable.

    In terms of being entitled as a woman compared to men I suppose the one thing I really feel entitled to is equal treatment. I’m stronger than most of my guy friends so I don’t really feel entitled to making them do all of the heavy lifting, door opening and whatnot.

    @MRSsrm85:  +1. I’m always ready/prepared to pay my own way, open the door for myself, stand on the train, etc. But it is nice when I don’t have to!

    Sometimes it is because a guy finds a girl attractive, such as buying a drink at a bar, and other times I’d hope it is just because he’s a nice guy, such as giving up a seat on the train.

    I’ve given my seat to a pregnant woman before and that is not because I found her attractive or she was wearing a mini dress. It was just the nice thing to do.

    I can totally understand how a cover charge keeps the rif-raff out. Esp out of a stip joint.

    When I was in Europe, I noticed women didn’t usually have to pay a cover charge, and men almost always had to because clubs would be overrun with dudesand they would turn into “sausage parties”. In fact, our guy friends always wanted us girls to go with them to the clubs because you could only get in if you had a girl with you (we happily obliged)! I thought it was like that in cities here? Usually clubs want women to enter so they reduce or waive the cover.

    @Barbiestylez:  is it because they are women they don’t expect to pay or is it because they don’t expect a cover charge at all? I know when I go to a bar that has a cover I am usually like oh wow there’s a cover?! What the heck! Maybe they just arent expecting it and it has nothing to do with their sex?

    I don’t feel entitled however my exeperience has been one where I have always been treated with preference by men and possibly had more opportunties due to being a woman cuz you know that men will trip over themselves  to accomodate if they think somethings going to end up on their cock…lol
