Any time I hear that word my mental jukebox punches F0312 and Aretha Franklin starts to play. I saw this the other day on a friends feed and it was took good not to crib.

Sometimes people use "respect" to mean "treating someone like a person" and sometimes they use "respect" to mean "treating someone like an authority", and sometimes people who are used to being treated like an authority say "if you won't respect me then I won't respect you" and what they mean is "if you won't treat me like an authority I won't treat you like a person" and they think they're being fair, but they aren't and it's not okay.
