I really hate the “don’t expect respect if you don’t respect yourself” bullshit. People will decide for you what constitutes self respect. Then they base their treatment of you on that decision. That guy is a hobo? Obviously he has no self respect so I don’t owe him common courtesy. That woman is a stripper? Obviously she has zero respect for herself so it’s okay if I gawk/harass/treat her like an object. You don’t get to fucking decide who respects themselves and if you’re a decent fucking human, you respect everyone until they’ve given you a personal reason not to.
