Chivalry is dead. Actually more than dead. Extinct. Men no longer hold doors, give up seats, or pull chairs out.
I think we need to bring back chivalry! It would do wonders for our relationships. With chivalry comes courtesy with courtesy comes consideration. I believe that lack of chivalry has a lot to do with the lack of commitment and kindness in relationships. Men are no longer forced to show good upbringing and give up a seat and this same disregard seeps into other parts of life. When a man doesn’t feel obligated to give an elderly or pregnant woman a seat it shows a lack of compassion.
Men say, “But women want to be equal!” Equality and chivalry have nothing to do with the other. Equality is a human right and chivalry is good manners. Men need to realize that to be kind to women is not the same as the right to vote, the right to breath, the right of choice. Men need to stop using that sad excuse, man up, and open that car door!
What do you think about chivalry? Is it dead? Should we bring it back? Is it demeaning towards women or can it refresh the relationship between men and women?
