Is chivalry dead? Or has it just changed shape? One man weights in. "When I'm feeling jaded I can't help but agree with Dave Chappelle's assessment that chivalry is dead—and women killed it. Don't get me wrong, I honestly enjoy opening the door, picking up the check and planning dates (OK, planning dates can get a little old). But what really makes me nervous are all of the obscure rules, most of which seem a little antiquated to me."
The content in this week's "What On His Mind" isn't all that different from what on our own minds this week. They're rating sexy bloggers, we're rating 10 men hotter than Hugh Jackman. They've got tips on how to kiss, and so do we! Hmm, maybe gender differences are a myth, after all...
What surprised me, a feminist, about vampire young adult novels? It was hot how both young men in the books I read were so chivalrous to their ladies. I don't just mean the "life or death" protection. The boys opened car doors, pulled out chairs and even defended their ladies' honor in front of schoolyard bullies. Both of these vampires were teenagers in different centuries and practice centuries-old gender roles. Real teenage boys? Chivalry is dead, my friends, and it can't decide who should pay for dinner.
