Chivalry – demeaning to women

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on April 24, 2008

I heard an argument a while ago from a woman who claimed chivalry was demeaning to women, on the grounds that it showed male superiority.

Of course chivalry is demeaning to women, it was invented in the Medieval times. How could it not be demeaning to women?? Medieval times were by definition demeaning to women!

I mean, G-d forbid that a man should open a door for a woman at any time especially when both her hands are occupied with grocery bags, or pick up the tab, or offer her his seat on the bus, or offer to carry her 4 grocery bags 10 floors up when the elevator is broken or simply refrain from raping her. I mean that is really demeaning to women.

Men are by definition demeaning to women, and not their behaviour only, but their very existence. In fact anything male is at its very core a degradation of women. It’s a matter of “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”.

If you do not pay attention to women’s needs, you are a brutish bore, and if you do, you are a misogynist asshole…

But smile, E. – at least you get to choose which one you want to be on any given day…
