    Is Chivalry Sexist?

    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...

    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.

    I Know It Is

    Chivalry is rare but is still very alive. My grandmother & grandfather instilled basic old fashioned values in me that are totally ingrained into my being. From basic acts like opening doors & pulling out the chair, to fighting to defend a woman's honor (I have the...

    YEPPER Still Alive

    I love when even figuratively a man comes to my rescue.  Recently in my life I have experienced a lot of this chivalry.   I have a lot of male friends and sometimes when they perceive that someone is trying to hurt me they move to get between me and that...

    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.

    I Hope To See It With My Own Eyes

    I hear about chivalry a lot on EP and see some stories, I've never been on the receiving myself in the real world, do you have to be a certain type of girl or woman to being it out in a guy? Is it only reserved for ones who seem ladylike? Or more vulnerable than the average...

    I find chivalry a dying act. Not only are guys being total di**s to woman but it reflects badly on those of us who do practice it

    I'm not saying you have to be "Mr.Nice" but open a door, carry a bag/book/coffee/etc. Be helpful. Chivalry is not dead but he's definitely ill. Revive him.
