Chivalry is not dead
The question has been raised recently if chivalry is dead. Is the gentleman still among us or has he vacated the premises due to fear of feminist rioters? Chivalry was once thought of as a natural way of life and now it seems that it has been shunned and viewed as demeaning.
I am here to make the argument that not only is chivalry alive and well, it's also highly desired!
As I walk on campus, I usually see people talking on their cell phones or blocking out everything around them with their iPods, but even with all these distractions, not a day goes by that some very nice man opens the door for me. This usually happens more than once and always by different men.
I feel like I don't have words adequate to state how wonderful this makes me feel. It's so simple! Opening a door for a complete stranger? Who even thinks that this would make an impact on somebodies day? Well let me tell you, it's fabulous and I'm forever grateful for the men who politely do common acts of kindness with no thought of reward or recognition in return. Thank you men of Southern Utah University. You are truly fantastic.
