Is Chivalry dead? Do you need it or Do you just want it?
High-end Boutique Etiquette Training with Amanda King at Success with Manners
In modern times we see chivalry as a man who acts like a gentleman. A gentleman is a man who is courteous towards women. The word gentleman has somewhat now replaced the word chivalry in modern times. Chivalry is associated with the combination of qualities expected of an ideal knight, especially courage, honour, justice, and a readiness to help the weak.
If a person were to illustrate courage by texting or posting online something worthy they could be seen has having chivalry. It would be fairly difficult to be demonstrating acts of chivalries online. Chivalry could most definitely exist online if a man demonstrates these qualities but it matters how the individual receives them and this make the person have the action of chivalry.
Chivalry are also acts of kindness however, it is more encouraged and understood that chivalry is an action you do in person. Chivalry isn’t dead but misunderstood and with a society that is pushing towards self-first the nature of chivalry has been sometimes left behind.
Society see’s acts of chivalry, as something of the past, by definition it is an old concept but in modern times we see chivalry in aspects in our everyday lives. The media tend to draw attention to drama and issues that are negative and political.
Chivalry can be viewed from the perspective of a man with good manners, or acting appropriate in a way that's socially acceptable and respectful, display respect, care, and consideration for others. It isn’t often shared publically and there is a movement now to bring back acts of respect and kindness as society has gone too far the other way service selfish needs first.
