even as a kid i knew respect *as it was said to me* was bullshit. "respect me and i'll respect you" meant respect due according to the power hierarchy in the speaker's head. weird how the speaker always seemed to be at the top of the hierarchy that they made up.

*standard acknowledgement that i know there are good ways to use respect, it's just that people who held power compared to a child never used those forms when addressing children*
