We asked, you answered: Should men open doors for women?

On Wednesday, Hoda and Willie showed a clip from the new Steve Harvey movie "Think Like a Man," that suggests that men who don't open doors for women should be shipped off to a special island for horrible people.

We asked you to weigh in via a poll and Facebook comments, and you responded in droves. So, should a man open the door for you? The consensus was a resounding "Yes."

In our vote, over 90% of you said that it's a chivalrous act and women love it, while around 10% of you said you could do it yourself. On Facebook, the general sentiment seemed to be that you should open the door for ANYBODY — it's the job of the first person at the door to open it. INTERESTING!

Here are some of your wise remarks. Agree? Disagree? Weigh in over at Kathie Lee and Hoda's Facebook page, and in the comments below.

"Should he? No. Would it show he has class.... Yes!" - Tricia Suglian

"Yes. Good manners never goes out of style. On the other hand, I will hold doors open for men — or anybody, too." - Joanne Cummings.

"It's always nice but I would rather have him take out the trash." - Stella Johnson Kalb

"Only if he wants to or feels it is appropriate. Just like women should not feel obligated to do things they don't believe is appropriate." - Teresa Hagerman

"Just like carrying a case of beer, if I can drink it, I can carry it. If I'm gonna go thru it, I can open it." Alicia Smith
