A friend of mine whose mother died recently was going through her parents memorabilia and unearthed a Western Union telegram from 1954 that her father sent her mother just before they married. Heres what it said:
Darling, I shall be waiting for you at eight. With a lifetime of expectancy. My heart will be coming with you down the aisle. May God be with us tonight as we pray we will always be with Him. Thank you for becoming my wife. My love forever yours, Henry
Several days after Id read this note, I came across this miserable tripe on Facebook: Chivalry is harmful to both men and women, relays the woman in the video. because it reinforces this idea that women need to be helped or saved by a stronger man. And it takes away a womans agency.
The video is part of an "Unpopular Opinion" series on Facebook, a concept that in theory Id support. But theres nothing unpopular about a video that sells the same tired message feminists have sold for years and subsequently became the status quo: that men and women are equal and should therefore be treated the same.
Women can open their own doors, pull out their own chairs and take care of themselves, women have argued for years. Im strong enough to do all these things, notes the woman in the video, who identifies herself as Emily Panic, as she flexes her arm muscles to viewers.

God rest it’s soul.
They killed Chivalry AND their BABIES!!! I as a woman have very little respect for 99% of women!!!
They are easily led by nitwits and phonies like Oprah and their insipid, trend following girlfriends!
They take the word of other women before they would their husbands....if they still have one.
I have had to work with women who say “G..damn men this. G...damn men that” and a few minutes later they say “Will one of gentlemen stay late and take out the trash.” One of them told me that she could not work late because her husband would not allow it, therefore I would have to stay late. I think that is called having your cake and eating it too.
Not dead, but in a great deal of pain.
Militant feminists, not “women”, killed it. Nor is it completely dead, but it has been coughing up blood for the last several decades.
Chivalry is a warrior code. Thats why they are trying so hard to destroy it. It wont happen in my lifetime. Ill see to that.
Well said. This woman agrees.
Worked around quite a few of the ones you mentioned.
It wont happen in my lifetime. Ill see to that.
Good bless you, sir.
A misogynist is a man who hates women as much as women hate women.
And the grateless females who used shaming tactics to denigrate and diminish men everywhere have made the world a coarser and less civilized place. Courtesy and demonstrated chivalry were once cherished ideals, not much that common even in the height of their supposed glory. There was a lot of pushing and shoving at the lower levels, and little regard for the rights of others, but to conflate and equate this peasant behavior with the high manners exhibited by the more educated and cultured people who were in positions of influence is to mistake correlation for causation.
“Me first” has always been a rather unattractive personality trait.
Well said, L.
Aye aye Capn’
In order to get the upper hand, first they had to get rid of all kinds of things...traditions, civility, manners, in tact families, morality ( in every aspect and meaning of that word ), religious freedom and belief, education that was geared to teaching facts and factual history, and patriotism. And they managed to mostly do all of that and more.
Personally, I’d expand this concept to include courtesy and manners and the denigration of all 3 by the barbarians who decry them as malign. While I would not require every gathering to be guided by Emily Post’s Etiquette Guide or by Robert’s Rules of Order, nonetheless these books are compilations of centuries of good operation and to toss them out is the mark of delinquent and despoiling behavior.
Interesting how it appears that these actions appear to be the tools of the LEFT, no?
Exactly. People forget, or do not know, that the feminist movement is largely lesbian. It was taken over by the far left in the mid-70’s, just as the Democrap Party was.
The result is the rapidly increasing MGTOW movement.
Its called being a woman.
