before making judgments, to value the truth over personal agendas
or the immediate benefits which falsehoods may offer. No wonder some of you can’t be considered “real men”.
to act with keen moral judgment, to maintain high standards of conduct. A man is a strong as his word, so if his word is weak, so is he.JUSTICE--to defend the helpless, to challenge evil wherever you encounter it, and to come to the aid of those who are so doing. A lot of people won’t do this unless it comes with a reward for themselves.VALOR--to have not the lack of fear but the ability to set aside self-interest when faced with evil, to be willing to fight for what is right, regardless of what other people may say or do to you. Ha! as selfish as some of you are now?! If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.PROWESS–to have the discipline to train body, mind and spirit
for the work of a knight and to eschew (to avoid habitually especially on moral or practical grounds) the self-destructive behaviors
which tear down physical and spiritual health. Key word here; Discipline!LOYALTY–to choose for yourself the Worthy One or Ones,
whether they be your God, your loved ones, your country, your leader
or your cause and to dedicate yourself to the protection and fulfilment of those Ones. There is a thin line between Loyalty and Stupidity when it comes to whom you dedicate yourself to, I don’t think you really know what loyalty is.
LARGESSE--to give freely of what you have without impoverishing yourself, to show generosity to friend and stranger alike, to be merciful and fair in all your dealings.
COURTESY–to be polite and mannerly in dress, speech and carriage, to treat all people as equals, to be kind to animals, and in war or competition to follow the rules, lose with grace and win with humbleness. This is where you put other people first and stop being so selfish.
NOBLESSE–to be diligent in study, enhance your knowledge of the world, practice your skills, use your natural gifts to generate goodness, thereby enriching your life and the lives of those around you. But if it ain’t making you money, or look good you don’t care huh?
HUMILITY–to have all the above qualities without ever proclaiming them, to bear the heavy burden of Chivalry without so much as a breath of exertion, to be a silent strength
which supports and sustains us all. Being humble, men who are upstanding and gentlemen without needing recognition, if you’re putting on a show just for recognition you failed before you even left the house, real men wake up and just do.
Being chivalrous in today’s world is not about laying your coat over a mud puddle so that your lady does not get her shoes wet, but instead showing her your respect and that you appreciate her company. Being chivalrous is not just a way to impress a woman but a way to live your life. It is about being aware and appreciating the people around you.
Eh, chilvary is dead. I personally don’t believe in it for a few reasons.
1. The time when chilvary was the norm was not a tme when you wanted to be a lady (equality wise)… (For the most part)
2. Bimboos always get the wrong idea when you are trying to be nice.
3. And many more reason I don’t care to explain.
Truth is. That list you made isn’t a list on how to be chilvary. In fact both sexes need to be more like that listen because it explains “how to be a good person.”
I’ll hold a door open for a guy just as much as I would for a lady.
Chilvary is dead. It shouldn’t be revived either. We should all just strive to be good people that just help eachother.
The list created (not by me) addresses what it means to embody chivalry, so yes that list can apply both ways, that list are the things that are chivalry (for whomever). Most people in general do not have most or any of these qualities, you admitted you’d hold a door open for any being (btw, being chivalrous isn’t exclusive to just women) So in doing that, does it not make you in some ways chivalrous?
Just because (back then) a female wanted equality it gives males a pass to stop living up to (what was then) a standard for being a MAN? So now, the women, in this day and age, who appreciate and WANT a man who embodies that quality just gotta deal with the fact, men decided to stop being men, as well as teaching the next generation how to be as well. Great.
2. Like you said BIMBOOS get the wrong idea- not real WOMEN, know the difference, and stop f*cking with those birds.
3. Do MEN (not males) not have the same etiquette and manners that could otherwise be seen as chivalry? If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck is it a pig?
4. Do I believe chivalry is dead? Nope, cause you just said you yourself do some of the things that IS chivalrous, I do believe its not as forward and obvious as it once was.
Wait so where did that list come from? And we are just going to agree to not see eye to eye on this one.
The list was written in the 12th century, The Code of Chivalry was a moral system which went beyond rules of combat and introduced the concept of Chivalrous conduct. A Code of Chivalry was documented in ‘The Song of Roland’ in the early 11th Century Medieval period of William the Conqueror. The ‘Song of Roland’ has been described as Charlemagne’s Code of Chivalry.
I know where the list came from that’s my point. Let’s look back before that time… I’m sure ppl still did those things. Its called “being a person.” And also let’s look at how women were treat back in that time when chilvary was a big deal. Yea… A woman’s opinion really didn’t matter much back then. I could go on and on about how much bullshit this is but whatever. I’ll be a sack of bruised from bent on just being a good person. Lmao!!! P.S. Thought you need other things to make you a man. (Just saying)
