There is a belief that some men value a woman just because of her womanity, not because of a respect toward a so called 'holy' and honorable creature. Please imagine you as a man respect all women because you respect this gender not because of their sex, but because this gender is considered as valuable and precious one for you as a man. Suppose you are in a train give your seat to a young lady and when you stay up, your friend says humorously (but with a bad intonation):
- Hey man, did you like her? [smilingly]
You want to tell him that what you did was only out of respect and nothing more. There is a way in my mother language to indicate such a message. I need to make sure if it works in English too.
[Direct translation]: Steve, I don't look at all women like a hole. (meaning that I didn't have any sexual intent]
[No matter how old are they, such a sentence can be used between friends.]
If it sounds a bit off or wired, then I would appreciate if you could let me know what a native would say to indicate the same thing.
