Grow Yourself a Penis But Don't Become a Cock.

Chivalry is dead. Get used to it.

That's what I've been told about my simple expectations of having doors opened, seats pulled, heavy bags carried and other gentlemanly acts of class and good upbringing.

AND THEN.. men bring up the fact that WE WOMEN want to be independent and equals. Jeez... leave it to them to not be able to differentiate between chivalry and chauvinism.

Just because we want to be equal as human beings, doesn't mean we become MEN. Yes we want to have the rights to vote, get an education, a career and financial independence... that is our prerogative as human beings. But in no way does that mean that we have become Men. There's still a distinction between you and me. Man and woman.

And so, my point is... chivalry should still exist! It is chauvinism that needs to go.
I blame the feminists for this. ( No offense, please don't beat me). Radical feminism is out to destroy the family and the institution of marriage. The very things I believe in.

"Since marriage constitutes slavery for women,
it is clear that the women's movement must concentrate on attacking this institution.
Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage."
radical feminist leader Sheila Cronan

The end of the institution of marriage is a necessary condition for the liberation of women. Therefore it is important for us to encourage women to leave their husbands..."
-Declaration of Feminism
Now, that's just crazy talk to me.
If you want freedom and equality, then be an educated and strong person of good moral fortitude. There's no need for male bashing, no need for bra burning or feigned lesbianism.
Granted. Many men are chauvinistic and are limiting the freedom of women. But life is about choices, we choose what we want to be like and who we want to be with. Choose wisely...Don't choose a man who is a cock.... but that doesn't mean shun all men altogether.
We should work at abolishing chauvinism without taking chivalry, marriage and other institutions down with it.
So I say this to Women who want to emulate men. And to men who still insist on wearing the pants. That's fine. It's your choice. By all means, grow yourself a penis, BUT don't become a cock.

  1. My chauvinistic bf believes that all women are bad drivers and all bad drivers are women. But he opens doors for me and he does the housework. So I suppose that makes him a well-trained chauvinistic slave.. muahahaha

    Why such, Why it should be some chivalry when a woman need a hand, otherwise blame chauvinistic.
    Why it should be voting right for woman when she like to go outside, even so many foolish idea.
    So reasonable for this world. Man makes money and raise mainly for his family so takes leadership.
    Everyone can get leading position if he or she can take the responsiblity.

  4. HI anonymous.
    Exactly!
    I am not saying that man shouldn't earn the money for the family and take leadership etc.
    I was saying that whether he wears the pants or not (meaning whether he is a leader or not), doesn't mean that he should stop being a gentleman.. (eg. stop helping me carry a heavy bag).

    And I don't need a man to be chivalrous whenever I NEED A HAND. Realistically, I can carry my own bags, open my own doors. But it's nice when a man has enough in him to do it. I'm old fashioned like that.
