As I read them a few months ago, I savored each one... it was nice to see that even though in today's world we may often wonder if love like this still exists, the thing I learned is that the patterns of early relationships and blooming love are still the same.

We've all heard the expression "chivalry is dead." While I'm convinced true gentlemen are still out there (I happen to be married to one), I do wonder about the younger generation. Now that I'm raising a little boy, I think about the kind of man I want him to be.

Be aware of your privilege as a man and don't use it to be a coward or a sucker by saying and doing things to take advantage. Be understanding, LISTEN to others. In every interaction, be humble and gentle and sincere.

Why As a Girl, I'm Glad Chivalry Is Dead

Unwritten | Posted 08.26.2016 | Home

Of course chivalry is dead; it's an outdated code used by medieval knights, for crying out loud, not a modern day code on dating etiquette. Why is there so much pressure on men to be measured against an unattainable goal?

The women I am among, the ones who have assured themselves I'm not a voyeur, give me a great deal for credit for my photographic labor. I'm dedicated, I take lovely photos, I'm always around. It's a lot of work. I feel duty-bound to acknowledge that my motives are much more self-serving.

Dear Chivalry, Please Die (and Stay Dead!)

I believe these seemingly harmless social norms serve to send a mixed -- and ultimately harmful -- message to men. When it comes down to it, how can we as women demand equal wages when we also expect to be paid for?

How My Single Mom Made Me A Male Feminist

TueNight | Posted 01.10.2015 | Home
TueNight

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
