What happened to the knights?
Today, we use ‘chivalry’ to describe a gentlemanly act that a man does for a woman. Common practices are things like holding a door open for a woman or helping her carry books or groceries. However, acts of chivalry are by no means limited to those 2 acts.
But today, the simple gesture of opening a door for a woman is a rare thing among young men. I once read a quote that said, “Chivalry isn’t dead; men just choose to ignore it.” In some cases that may be true, but I would guess that young men today aren’t gentlemen because they are letting fear or their own comfort stop them. I think also that many young men today are not being taught by their fathers how to be gentlemen. Children are going to imitate what they see their parents doing, and if they don’t see their father leading and being a gentleman, chances are pretty high that the son won’t be a gentleman either.
