    I think it is slowly disappearing. Though, I can tell many times where my crush has behaved in chivalry manner with me.

    Nah, I remember when it was pouring down with rain and a male friend offered to give me his jacket when he only had a shirt on underneath. I said "No, no, you'll be freezing" but he was like "it doesn't matter, you're a girl". I was pretty cold so in the end I was just like okay yeah. Don't hate me.

    Chivalry died, when the Church started loosing it's power. I don't get why people equate putting women on a pedestal with knight etiquette.

    Here are the rules of chivalry, notice how brief and vague the bit about women is. "To respect the honour of a woman" that's literally it.
    • To fear God and maintain His Church
    • To serve the liege lord in valour and faith
    • To protect the weak and defenceless
    • To give succour to widows and orphans
    • To refrain from the wanton giving of offence
    • To live by honour and for glory
    • To despise pecuniary reward
    • To fight for the welfare of all
    • To obey those placed in authority
    • To guard the honour of fellow knights
    • To eschew unfairness, meanness and deceit
    • To keep faith
    • At all times to speak the truth
    • To persevere to the end in any enterprise begun
    • To respect the honour of women
    • Never to refuse a challenge from an equal
    • Never to turn the back upon a foe

    Agreed ^ I think it's a good thing though. I'm a feminist and I don't see anything wrong with it, but some feminists think it's a step backwards. (But chivalry doesn't have to be one sided)

    Haha, I suppose it was kinda necessary in this case since the only reason he offered me his jacket was because I'm a girl. Otherwise he could have offered it to the other guy we were with, or else kept it on himself.

    I know lol, im not taking the piss but i honestly would hate to be a woman, 18 years of life as a male has made me appreciate all that i am. But its ok, maybe being a woman isnt for me and is for u and others. Just my personal opinion.

    Haha, fair enough. Being a man does make it sound as though life would be easier sometimes but I couldn't picture being one.

    Feminism. Greater equality in all areas of life. Men are no longer treating women like delicate beings that need to be taken care of. They are treating them as their equals.

    Women are having more casual sex than in the past.
    Men no longer have the incentive to behave like gentlemen. Men who wanted sex once had to acquire girlfriends. Now sex is a right swipe away.

    It is not completely dead. Many men will still 'woo' a women who does not give away the goods easily and that they consider to be long-term wife material.
