I didn't think about the extreme feminist angle. I find that attitude from women to be strange and stupid and counter-productive. If I'm the first person to the door, then I hold it for the people who are immediately behind me.
For the record, I was already prepared to buy my own ticket, I guess I was expecting him to at least offer to pay. Not like when one of my fellow grocery baggers asked if I wanted to see Raiders of the Lost Ark (first run). I assumed that was Dutch Treat. (I mean, those tickets cost four whole dollars!)
