|Gentlemen need not wear a suit or tie. They are ordinary folk like you and me.|
"Chivalry is dead. Gentlemen are a rare breed."
I often read or hear these words nowadays. It is frustrating to hear such words from people who probably don't even know what the words "chivalry" and "gentleman" mean and where they originated.
In today's generation where feminists fight to be men's equal, opening doors for women or offering to bring their heavy bags are laughed upon. The men are promptly labelled "chauvinist pigs".
Today's view of what Gentlemen have changed from what they were back then. From "Men who give respect to the people around them" to "Guys who are there for the convenience of women."
And you wonder where the good guys are. Gentlemen have enough self-respect to know that they are not there as your plaything or your servant.
Today when men offer to go above and beyond their call of duty for their female colleagues or friends, it is seen as "flirting".
Again you wonder where the good guys are.
Well I'm pretty sure there are still a lot more out there. The thing is, the news is so full of players and heartbreakers and badboys to notice the little acts each of them do every day.
You'll have to look closer and more carefully to find where they are, because in today's society, beating up a woman is more newsworthy than a man giving up his seat for a woman.
