This is one definition that doesn't speak for everybody, but is a universal common sense definition. Knowing that everybody is not the same, doesn't think the same, doesn't do things the same way without trying to convert the other person to your way of doing things is respect. Once you try and convert other people to your way of doing things, you don't respect them. This applies to people who wear masks, it also applies to people who dont wear masks, and try to run off the people who do wear masks. It also applies to race and statues. Thinking someone should respect your race and your martin luther king statues while trying to get Confederate statues removed is not true respect. Expecting someone to compromise before you can respect them is not respect, it's the opposite. Compromise or expecting others to compromise is also not a sign of growing up.
Elementary school kids learn how to call people sir, ma'am, mr., and mrs., and doing so is not a sign or a symbol of true respect for somebody else, which is why false respect or pretending to respect someone is not better than no respect or disrespect, and is sometimes the exact same thing.

Do you really think you deserve if you're a bunch of fat whores letting the staff of your establishment fuck one of the cripples in your farm?
Is it respect you deserve? Or is it a painful death?

Respect is when you talk to people with respect.Kindness.You have to treat people with respect like teachers, friends,parents, and others.When you do not treat people with respect they will not treat you with respect either. When you are mean to people like your friends they will not want to be your friend because of the way u treated them. People in my old school did not treat people with respect and they were mean to their friends and their friends did not want to be their friends.my mom told me a story and she said in middle school she and her friends did not get along
Makayla Green: "I respect you."
