Would you guys bow to royalty?
 
Well, I've been thinking about this lately. As a human being, i do not see why I should bow before someone just because they are "Royal". :shrug:

Sure because idgaf

I'd show respect, but if my Queen told me to do things against my will, I'd not do it.

Metallicaxp 12-17-2012 03:33 PM

I'd blow a load on them.

It's a custom, so is saying "bless you" to someone who sneezes. Get over it.

zgr0826 12-17-2012 03:35 PM

Not unless they also bowed to me.

PeZ546 12-17-2012 03:36 PM

I agree with TS. It's the same reason I refuse to shake anyone's hand or say "Hello, nice to meet you"

macashmack 12-17-2012 03:37 PM

I agree zgr0826
and badfish, saying bless you doesn't imply that you are below them. Bowing to someone implies that you are below them as humans. I'm not below anyone, and neither is anyone else.

I never really did like monarchy.

So I bow to them but they don't bow to me?

But that is amongst equals. Bowing is not amongst equals, unless both people bow (like the Japanese custom). The queen of england would not bow to me if i bowed (but she doesn't care if people bow so she isn't the best example).

The point is that it's considered a courtesy.

How is it courteous to debase yourself in front of others?

adamgur96 12-17-2012 03:42 PM

Just because their ancestors were a bunch of cunts that enslaved my ancestors doesn't mean i'll bow down to them.

Banjocal 12-17-2012 03:42 PM

respect is earned not given. and i have no reason to respect the royals

Dregen 12-17-2012 03:43 PM

fuck no.

matsif 12-17-2012 03:44 PM

no, I would not. I don't see someone with a royal title as any different than me other than I grew up somewhere different to them with a different family name. They have done nothing to have earned that title other than get born into it.

If someone had earned a true reason to garner so much respect as to bow to them, then yes I'd think about it. But for "royalty" who have basically done nothing other than be born into a certain family, no.
