I encountered two male feminists this week as I happened upon a scene I have witnessed before and said nothing about (although I was irritated by it.) I went in to a chemist (pharmacy) shop and handed the pharmacist a prescription to dispense for my husband.
I knew I would have to wait for some minutes. There were two seats provided for the convenience of customers and two young men were sitting on them while two ladies stood when I arrived.
I was immediately irritated and annoyed to see two lazy, unchivalrous non-gentlemen sit while two ladies (and I made a third) stood. This is what feminism has done to society (and to men) in that males no longer think that women are deserving of nor desirous of chivalrous behaviour.
I decided there and then that I would confront these two young men and I said to them, “You sit while ladies stand.”
I continued my “lecture” with ,”Whatever happened to chivalry?”
To his credit, one of the young men rose from his seat and offered it to me but I declined the offer, telling him it was too late and that he shouldn’t need to be told to offer a woman his seat (or words to that effect.) The other young man was of a harsher countenance and totally ignored me. Soon they left, their business in the shop completed.
To you men reading this, bring back chivalry and please don’t sit while ladies stand. Don’t allow feminism to make you forget your manners.
