I miss the days of doors being opened, seats pulled out and actual gentlemen. This seems to have flown the coop in our gender cofused society these days. At one point, men knew how to treat a lady. What a messed up modern day society we are in which most kids will never be able to experience. Maybe most people can't seem to come to grips with the fact that obligation, responsibility and genuine care take as much work as an everyday job, especially after the newlywed phase..

Our culture does not support those notions anymore, as they are castigated and maligned as being the artifacts of some supposed iron-fisted patriarchal paradigm of which all vestiges must be destroyed. As to myself, I still do those awful, oppressive things, like opening doors, pulling out chairs, etc...but they are more force of habit than they are a sense of higher ordered thinking. I refuse to be bullied into thinking that this is wrong by any snotty-nosed new-agey punk who thinks they have all the answers to life. I shall continue in this horribly oppressive behavior until the Politically Correct Storm Troopers arrest me and haul me off to Patriarchy Prison; I would go, gladly.<br />

This society does not value deference or even being polite to one another. Such behavior is considered suspicious, at best. This is especially true withing the dynamics of gender relations, as any sort of example that purports differences between men and women is considered border-line criminal. Don't blame the idea that men have changed; society and its values have.

For what it's worth, I think it's the sign of a gentleman when a man opens a door for me. Sorry your girl doesn't appreciate it.

Best Answer

Never allow another human being to stop you from being who you are. Gentleman are almost always appreciated so you might want to reevaluate your choice of who you are seeing.
