- Is Chivalry Dead?
If chivalry is dead, women killed it.
Years of men doing the gentlemanly thing were suddenly met with women who decided they didn't want it anymore. They demanded that it be stopped, that they be treated like equals instead of lessers, and in exchange the man found it less necessary to treat to woman as a woman.
As a result, genders became more blurred and balance was achieved. Where a man may have bit his tongue around a woman before, he now lashes at her like he would any of his peers because that's the proper thing to do in regards to equality.
Of course, this didn't last. By creating a equal balance between the races, women felt alienated. "Where have all the good men gone," they ask? "Where can I find a gentleman?"
And as a result, the woman created her own misogynist.
...At least thats how I see it. I'm sure that's all wrong and there's still real gentlemen out there. I try to be one, anyway.
