QotD: Мерзкий сексизм

From Hartley's "Chapter VI: Etiquette for the Ball Room". Вообще не понимаю, как женщины выживали в то нелёгкое время. Хоть я и с некоторым трудом вспоминаю себя и друзей в молодом возрасте, мы совершенно точно не были такими patronizing bastards.

You will pay a delicate compliment and one that will certainly be appreciated, if, when a lady declines your invitation to dance on the plea of fatigue or fear of fatigue, you do not seek another partner, but remain with the lady you have just invited, and thus imply that the pleasure of talking with, and being near, her, is greater than that of dancing with another.
