Disclaimer: This post may be controversial. Put you are reading my blog so this is my opinion.
With the birth of feminism came the death of chivalry. Women no longer wanted men to open doors for them, help them put on their coats, or carry their bags. The feminist woman could do it herself and did not need a mans help. She wanted to make her way with out a man. She thought she did not need men. The feminist woman would soon regret what she had killed. . Men were rejected when the offered to help the new feminist woman. She did not need him she could make her own way! The men soon stopped offering to help the new feminist woman and they did not teach their sons to be chivalrous. The new feminist woman saw men as a threat and her competition. She did not want his help. That was a sign of weakness. She started competing with him in the work place. Competing with him for higher wages. He was no longer an ally but an enemy. Feminism killed chivalry. Chivalry is not completely dead. It can be revived. I do not think it ever will be. Feminism is not the only thing that has diminished chivalry. But is has crippled it. There have been benefits in feminism. But the feminist movement has been taken too far. Now when a man opens a door for a woman she is skeptical of him. She thinks he wants something. Woman are surprised if a man is nice to her. Woman are trying to restore chivalry. Mothers, fathers, men, and women need to take steps to restore chivalry and kindness in and to both sexes. I am not a feminist. I am glad I have the right to vote and the right to equal wages.
