And so, “Chivalry” now means
–Men must give me whatever I want, whether that be free meals, drinks, entertainment, nights out, commitment, relationships, marriage, and access to his resources, without question or hesitation. They must open doors for me, lay their coats across puddles for me to walk upon so my feet don’t get wet, offer to pay for everything, and allow me to control all aspects of our relationship.
–Men must never ever question me about anything, ever.
–My husband is not allowed to expect anything of me in our marriage.
–Men are required to make my life safe, to remove or neutralize all hazards, and permit me to do and say whatever I want, when I want, how I want, with whom I want. If there are any consequences, men are required to bear their costs.
So why is it accepted that women are owed? Because that is what it amounts to. There really isn’t any way to deny it.
Is it because,
I. Men created the Evil Patriarchy, and they must pay continual reparations?
II. Women are just so wonderful, that what else would one do?
III. There is Evil in our midst, and this is a manifestation of it?
IV. Women are selfish and men won’t stand up to them?
V. Women are like children and want the equivalent of adults to fix everything?
VI. Hillary and her minions hate you and this is their revenge?
VII. The reason is unknowable?
Please feel free to add your own reasons.
