Do women even want chivalry any more? I've been given the stinkeye more than once for offering to help a woman with what might seem to be like something she may like assistance with. It doesn't deter me. I will continue to treat women with the consideration I believe they deserve. But I believe a lot of women are destroying chivalry themselves and that its not entirely a man's fault for not holding the door open or offering to carry the boxes. If chivalry is going to work, there has to be a sort of ,"understanding" among the sexes.
