Chivalry. Something that is dead.
By Light on 08.14.2013
Chivalry is usually talked about when knights are included, especially ones from medieval times. They need to be brave and kind, heroic and respectful. They need to be handsome as well as muscular, able to fight in battle (and win) and successfully woo a lady.

that is his name.
chivalrous like Lancelot himself. Picture perfect man any woman would be lucky to have in her life.
But no one wants a good boy. No, we all want that bad boy don’t we? That one man we hope to inspire a change in.

Chivalry is dead. That’s what her mother had always told her, anyway. But looking up at him, confusedly eyeing his outstretched hand, she wonders if this time maybe, just maybe, her mother is wrong.
Then she sees the knife.

Well this guy came from nowhere. I mean Oh My God! Talk about fit. He lay down his jacket in the gutter and bowed for me to walk across it. I laughed until I almost pee’d my pants. Everybody else was staring it was just soooo embarrassing.

as related to courtesy, the first evolution of the relations between the sexes. Chivalry is not dead, but it really ought to be by now

Chivalry was what she needed. It was her duty to lead her fellow Vanguards and protect the Talents of the Frontier. She was scared. It was her first day on the job. She didn’t know exactly what to do. She knew that she had to protect…but how?

I didn’t pray to a God that made me feel
as if I’d been forsaken;
and I remember tower doors being held for me,
to walk through with ease.
Oh, how the wind did take my hair,
and greet me with the sun.
The wolves howled at night,
and ever so often, I’d seek the owls.

Er fuhr sich durchs Haar. Was konnte er tun? Sie dachten, er sei der Ritter. Der weiße Ritter, der ihrem Land den Frieden bringen sollte. Wie sollte er das tun? Er, der es nicht einmal fertig brachte, ein Pferd zu satteln.

“What do you mean, a good thing?” demanded his sister. “It’s a good thing that my boyfriend stood me up?”
“I think that most people would agree, there’s a huge difference between being chivalrous and being courteous,” he pointed out. “I don’t stand up my friends. Even if they’re guys. Unless it’s an emergency.”
She pouted. “Well, I still think it’s unchivalrous of him.”
“I just think that’s an outdated concept. The idea that I should wait on you hand and foot just because your a woman kind of implies that women can’t do anything, doesn’t it?”

Who says chilvary is dead? I’d like to think it was very much alive and I like to have doors opened for me and for men to be gentlemen.

The robots’ chivalry exists in a plane outside of ours; that is to say, our men have no clue. We turn to the solar-exchanged titanium men in our garages, our gardens, our kitchens, and find them more willing to nod and bow and please, while all the while standing upright. It is amazing and subversive and now, we know what our mothers knew.

“There is no way that I’m going to let you do that,” he said.
“I can’t imagine why it would be a problem,” she replied. “Isn’t chivalry also a matter of not getting in a lady’s way?”
“Still, it isn’t right.”
“It’s also not your choice.” She smiled. “Besides, you’re too late. I did it ten minutes ago.”

“Is chivalry dead?”
By Jenn URL on 08.15.2013
Torn between the whimsy of wanting to be saved and resentment that she was regarded as too weak to save herself, she resigned herself to isolation.

Chivalry. If a man don’t got it, nope, sorry, there’s no point in being with him. No chivalry basically indicates no respect.
Lessons in life, under a minute.

I passed by an older woman,
On my way to the drinking fountain,
And insisted that she go before me,
Because I am a gentleman, and that’s how I was raised.
Gave me her kindly, old, wrinkled smiled,
And insisted the opposite:
“We have equal rights now.”
I went ahead.
Honoured her wishes.
And we both went on our way.

Chivalry is lost and dead. Chivalry is of old myths including knights in shining armor and ladies whom all feminists would look down upon. These days, women are our own knight in armor. We are the knights of battle in the workplace, education, and at home. There will never be another time when men are able to fulfill the roles that we are stronger and more equipped for. Chivalry is dead.

Chivalry…………..is dead…………..for more people than I like to think about. Especially in the younger generations.
I’m so sorry to see that so seldom.
But when I do see chivalry? I embrace it. I say THANK YOU wholeheartedly. I’m happy to see
that it’s not COMPLETELY gone………..

He held her gently in his arms
in the way that you would expect
all knights to do so
except the only thing
that kept him
from all the other knights
wasn’t the fact that
he had slain the dragon
he slain her as well.
