I gave up on chivalry-over
-equality a few years ago when a random girl at university decided to tell me off for holding the door open for her.
These were heavy swinging doors - The sort you hold open whoever
is coming though after you. To let those door slams on anyone, regardless of their gender, race or creed, would be unbelievably cockish. I suspect she was a mental, but sod it - equality from here on in. Just try not to be a cock.
I still belive in chivalry, but I don't think it is (or should be) the same as it was. I'm quite sympathetic to both feminist and masculanist causes so I don't belive in double standards. Also I belive its bullshit that women are the weaker sex, there are a couple of women at my Wing Chun class that could probably kick my ass.
I only open doors for my elders, the disabled or if someone is right behind me. I'm not going to hold the door open for some bitch that has a perfectly fine working pair of arms and legs.
