Have women sacrificed chivalry for civil liberty?
Is there a happy medium between gender equality and traditional romantic ettiquette, or is chivalry unrealistic this day in age?
I think the levels go up and down from time to time. But I don't like that picture at all. It is irritating to say the least.
The picture is all too typical, also. It reminds me of bycles built for two. The big guy always sits in front blocking the smaller woman's view from the rear. Same on the back of motorcycles--what a stupid place to ride.
Well I would rather have the man drive the motorcycle than me. Think of it that way. I want to look at the world flying by instead of focusing how to drive a tiny machine.
Would you, as a woman prefer the levels up or down Iburmaster? I'm glad the picture got your attention, sorry to irritate..to say the least. Not the best seat in the house Dr. Billy Kidd!
Chivalry inherently has always contained a small amount of sexism or “weaker sex” aspect to it. There have also been studies which have proven the more “attractive” a woman is the more men were willing to help her. I suspect some women have always felt a little uneasy in modern times with men, strangers in particular bending over backwards to pave the way for them. It created a sense of “indebtedness” or forced them to engage in conversation with men they would rather not. In essence chivalrous acts were a sly way to “break the ice”.
There also was a challenge for any woman who was seeking to climb the corporate ladder. She knew in order to be considered (equal) she would have to shed (the weaker sex) or being (special) mentality. If men did no pull out a chair for other men she did not want them to pull one out for her.
Chivalry has not died. It’s primarily reserved for women that men are “interested” in. Too much (unwanted) attention towards a woman a man barely knows can be considered sexual harassment. By and large if a woman is “into” the guy there is no such thing as too much chivalry.
I think manners are manners, and shouldn't have anything to do with equality.
