i'm a woman this doesn't make me less or inferior no one is superior to anyone else, stop letting your egos decide who matters and who doesn't because we all do; and the only one you strip dignity from in these situations is yourself— women are not your property or your broodmares, we don't owe you anything just because you were nice to us; if you're a good guy just for the compensation then you aren't truly good.
