    Difficult To Receive

    Not all women are fond of chivalry, and I understand it completely. One might feel offended or think she is treated like a weakling that can't even carry her own groceries.I used to have hard time with men or boys who treat women as 'ladies', doing the traditional chivalry stuff...

    Being a Woman, I Am a White Knight Too

    I think there are still left some white knights in this world.  People who KNOW. People who keep the true values.

    This Is Just Natural ...

    ... for me. I do many chivelrous things without thinking about them. I will always hold doors for others and I let a woman proceed me. The one thing I need to work on is paying attention to when a lady enters a room. This is so I can stand and show her some respect.

    After a year of living with my boyfriend, I'm certain chivalry is alive and well. But after hearing a lot of viewpoints on the matter, I've begun to think to myself: is it sexist? Having grown up on Disney movies I think it was ingrained in me that chivalry is the way it's...
