I used to think that my mom made her stand when I was seven in order to teach me to be a gentleman, a concept laden with the trappings of chivalry, often landing at odds with the equality demanded by feminism. Now I realize that she was actually teaching me that it was my job to show respect, keep my head up and look at the world through the lens of others.

Everyone needs help sometimes -- I don't know a single person who has never needed anything from anyone. This doesn't make us a land of enablers. This doesn't make us weak. This doesn't make us co-dependent. This makes us human.

You trust in saving graces like this. You trust that one day soon, you'll be able to laugh about this -- life's tragedy and consequent comedy. Because, at nearly 31, all you can do is accept that this is the life you're living.

Calee Prindle

I don't want my love life to be transactional. I'm not dating to get free meals; I'm dating to find someone who I can commit to -- a partner and an equal. I don't need a man who showers me with meals and drinks; I need a man who showers me with thought-provoking conversation

Ed had been charming and chivalrous for as long as I had known him. One might have expected these qualities to disappear once he developed Alzheimer's, but the opposite occurred. He became even more charismatic than before.

As an independent lady preaching the gospel of Beyoncé, I don't need a man to pull my chair out for me. But you know what I do need? A ride home in the morning and a McGriddle. Oh, and R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Holding the Door Open

It's not just about the door. It's about making a split-second decision whether to connect with another person -- to acknowledge their existence.

Women and Children First

The phrase "women and children" is being used to manipulate people, and it's offensive to me and insulting to males.

En route home, after an evening beach bonfire near San Francisco, my friend's car was running low on fuel. As we headed toward the nearest gas station, our VW rear passenger side tire struck a curb. Because our focus was fuel, we thought little about the bump.

Lauren Jacobs | Posted 11.12.2013 | Women
Lauren Jacobs

Strong, confident women who advocate for themselves all day in the world often find that they want the men in their lives to be giving. They want the door held open for them, a shared umbrella, an invitation to a date planned and paid for by the man in their lives.

Don't Believe All Men Are the Enemy

News headlines and social media would have us believe that misogyny is the rule, rather than the exception.

In Defense of Me

Zach Hunter | Posted 09.11.2013 | Religion
Zach Hunter

Many of us (Christians) think we should voice our objections if we hear or see something we perceive to be immoral according to how we interpret the Bible. And we often do this without being asked, without having a relationship that gives our opinion context, without knowing where the other person is coming from.

Last night, my husband delivered a love poem to me, bringing me to tears in seconds. He had obviously put much effort, care and pure love into it, but then again, from the day we first met almost eight years ago at age 50, he has always had a way with both words and chivalry.

Stand Up!

Keith Bernard | Posted 12.03.2012 | Media
Keith Bernard

Be not deceived. The idea that chivalry's origins lie in the chauvinistic past are incontrovertible. Suffice it to say that men treating women as if they are childish dependents, mental dwarfs, or hapless semi-invalids is a very bad thing... for us all.
