My respect for a woman has nothing to do with how long she waits to have sex. I see how she treats others, namely other women, and that’s usually a good base for me. How would her waiting a month to fuck mean she is respectable? Half this niggas would call her prude anyways. But that begs the question, what makes a man respectable?

and then sexualize her for that pain?
