Why chivalry is dying?

Well the main motivator? Feminism. At this age women strongly strive for equality. They live with the adage, “What men can do women can do better”, or so they say. A number of women now do men’s jobs – firewomen, policewomen, etc., because women want to stand in line with men. Sad thing is most men conceive this poorly. One simple example, a girl standing in a bus and a man having a seat. Most men now won’t offer a seat to a girl standing. Why? Because they think that women want equality meaning women standing on a bus like men do. It’s purely primitive thinking.

Second motivator – Lack of appreciation. Some women now are just taking things for granted. When a guy does a kind act on you, say thank you, okay?! Most men feel degraded when they’ve done something good and women simply ignore it and in result he’ll be afraid to do that again. And to men who were witness to such kind but unappreciated act, it unconsciously scars their subconscious mind that doing a kind act doesn’t end well making them not do a kind act ever again.

Third motivator – Weak men. Even if some women ignore your chivalrous act, please don’t stop doing it. Just because your kind act had a blunt reaction by and ignorant woman doesn’t mean they’re all the same. Be optimistic, maybe she’s just having a bad day. Maybe her mind is clouded by problems one kind act cannot diminish. Or maybe she’s just plainly ignorant. No matter what reason women give, men, we have one big reason why we must keep chivalry alive – it’s the essence that makes us true men. So if you’re not chivalrous, maybe you belong to the other side.

Everything read was just a product of a gentleman’s thought. Any contradiction to your belief  towards the topic is normal so keep calm and keep chivalry alive

    I definitely agree with your reasons here and I share the same sentiment! Chivalry will still be there as long as we still have true men who knows how to define the real meaning of manhood and as long as we still have men who are not overpowered by their ego!

    I remember when I was in the MRT and I was standing. A man offered his seat to me, which I gladly accepted. Two women in front of me kept whispering that the man was discriminating women. I was flabbergasted! I advocate for equal rights among all human beings but that doesn’t mean that everyone has to be the same. Equality of rights doesn’t mean equality in all aspects of life. I still admire chivalry. It doesn’t look down on women as being weak but it’s a way of letting a woman feel like a queen. Or am I wrong on this way of thinking?

      i definitely feel the same sentiment with you Claire. i really feel men must make women feel like a queen. you girls undergo menstrual period and carry our child for 9 months at most, i mean isnt that enough reason to make women feel like a queen? :))

    I can stand on a bus or the train, but I am always appreciative when a man would offer his seat to me. I am a well capable woman, but I couldn’t help but be glad and thankful when a man shows chivalry. For me, it never gets old. In my opinion, some women and men interpret gender equality the wrong way. Just because a man for example is being a gentleman, it doesn’t mean that he is belittling the woman. Some women are really over the top when it comes to being independent and all. I mean, nobody is questioning your capability, but why not let men take care of you from time to time? If they are doing it out of respect or love then why the hell not? And also with men, yes a woman is fighting for equality, yes a woman can stand on a train like everyone else, but does it really hurt their balls if they would offer their seat to a woman?

      Wow those are exactly my unwritten thoughts! So true Marge! We really cant generalize people. But you know, it’s just sad to know that it’s a dying act. Most teens nowadays consider being “bad” boys as cool. So sad

    I truly and definitely agree with you! Glad I do have a boyfriend that value the essence of chivalry and respect women equally. He has a compassionate heart for all the girls, young or old. ( But of course he never forget his limitations. Hahah because some girls *Sometimes* misinterpret the gentleness and kindness ng guys towards them.)

      You’re so lucky Jean! Haha yeeah some girls misinterpret kind actions of a guy towards them as showing interest towards them. But I can’t blame them, most of the time guys do good something good to a girl is because he’s interested :))

    same here, I always appreciate men who offered their seats to women because it shows respect. Glad to know that there are still few men practice chivalry in this time.

      awwe thanks Mhaan! yeah, there’s still a few, but getting fewer by the minute 🙁

    I highly value equality between men and women. But I always admire and appreciate men who respect and take the step to do something benevolent for women. I really hope chivalry will not totally die (I can say there are still some few who practice it).

      Dont worry Arrianne, until my last breathe I’ll keep it alive and spread it to others as well! :))

    Couldn’t agree more. Not everyone understands what Feminism and Equality actually are, so they simply rely on their own perception of it. There’s the argument that, yes, when men are seated and there’s a woman standing, it’s common courtesy to stand up and offer her their seat, but what if a woman is seated and there are men standing up? Should (and would) she offer her seat? Most women want equality, but when the tables are turned, they go back to their “I’m a woman and this is what’s expected of you as a man” attitude. And I’m a woman. Haha. Nice post.

    As the song goes, “they say chivalry is dead (dead, dead)”, I say not. It shouldn’t be. I believe that man should always practice being a gentleman at all times/circumstances.

    Don’t worry, chivalry won’t die. It’s just being misunderstood a lot lately. As long as you don’t discriminate on who to offer kindness to, don’t worry about losing your manliness 😉

      Yeeah. It will definitely not die, over my dead body :))

    Well, I’m really appreciative of men’s effort to please women. But men do the same things listed above as well! Some of them don’t appreciate women, don’t say thank you, etc. Just because they’re used to a gender-equal society (I live in Scandinavia). Chivalry is something personal, a habit, and something inculcated from when someone was born and raised. It’s not something that is forced or demanded. So, if men don’t show chivalry, it was his choice and his upbringing, and not necessarily the women’s fault. Just my two cents. 😉

      We can never generalize but yeah, it’s always the fault of both genders because we’re the only ones who can do so :))
