The bus was completely packed, standing room only, when a 30 something, stiletto wearing wall street ready woman stepped on the bus. I literally saw men look around for available seats and when they realized none were left, they buried their heads in newspapers, pretended to be deep in conversations or allowed their eyes to look everywhere except at this woman standing. When did this happen, when did the time come when men no longer stand when a woman enters a room, or offers his seat, pulls out chairs or opens doors? I have heard some men claim that women have made it clear that we can do all of the aforementioned activities for ourselves, and we can, but that doesn't mean we all want to forego the polite gestures of men.
I can't speak for all women but I know that I appreciate a man who at least attempts to be chivalrous.
Is chivalry really dead? Men would you have offered this woman your seat? Ladies how do you feel about a man offering his seat, are you insulted or do you willingly accept his kind gesture? I just had to get that off of my chest, now back to our regularly scheduled beauty reviews below.
