Why We Should Just Split the Check: Chivalry's End
As the world and society have developed, a once praised concept, chivalry, has dissipated and been called out on the many things that are wrong with it. The most popular error of chivalry is it’s placement of gender roles.
With this being the most reviewed definition of chivalry, it has gained much criticism for making women seem weak. Women have worked for and gained most of their equality, proving themselves strong, and can be chivalrous also. But ultimately, gender roles still cause conflict even with achieved equality of the sexes. Even though it doesn’t have to be specifically the opposite gender, some men or even women still end up behaving chauvinistic and inequality is used as an excuse.
