In the todays world it is easy to undermind the presence of chivalrous behavior with hi speed internet and mobile calls. Chivalrous deeds are not noticed but are not dead either, doors are still being opened, chairs are still being pulled. Men are still there to adhere to the demands and needs of women.
But what is the reason for the presence, if it isn??™t being noticed or appreciated. Like many, women never realize the presence of virtues only the lack of.

Men are genetically built to feel needed and represent their masculinity whether its for the same or opposite sex, how could chivalary be dead when it is part of our very fiber of livingHow could chivalary be by dead when it was justly portrayed today when my opponent was asked to have the first word, coincidence or second nature I leave u to be the judge of that.
Countless films have based the screenplay on the courage of men ??? the damlze in distress scene,??? if chivalry is dead, then where was that idea conceptualized Like am sure my opponent would tell u in the mind of man and that imagining and doing are not the same but I say to u madam chairperson didn??™t we imagine to land on the moon if a thought could land us on the moon I find it rather hard to believe that a thought wouldn??™t be able to aid in the opening of a door.Women ask for equal rights but want chivalary to be part of everyday life, if chivalry isn??™t dead which it isn??™t that would women would be treated differently thus not agreeing to equal rights , so in reality women are asking for two totally different things, leading to the question if women are not sure about how they should be treated how can they defretiate between the presence and absence of chivalry if they can??™t defrientiate between equal rights and extortion
