    Chivalry and Ediquette

    Just something to have fun with on this Holiday weekend. By the way Happy Memorial Day

    I was watching TV this morning and apparently this picture has gone viral on Twitter. I think most of us on this forum are older and I would venture to say that you like I was taught by our parents at a young age...chivalry and proper etiquette.
    What's wrong with this picture?

    The woman should be on the inside and shielded from the oncoming traffic. DUH!

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    LOL, hey now, you don't have to be "older" to understand and appreciate Chivalry. I, for one, am 27, and it took me about 2-3 seconds to get that reference (woman on the outside). And I sure as HELL did not learn that from my parents. In fact, the only thing I've really ever learned from my parents is exactly what NOT to do if you want to be a decent human being.

    Heh, I believe the practice of the man walking on the outside came from Victorian times, when the chamber pot was emptied by throwing it's contents out a second story window into the gutter.

    I think you're right, GTG. I think I've read that somewhere......probably while sitting on the commode !......and no, I didn't throw the contents out the window.

    KJ, I'm 28 and I got what that was about right away. Not all of us young punks are like the rest eh?

    GTG, I think you're right. I remember hearing the chamber pot thing too. You walk outside of the woman relative to the houses. Not the street necessarily.

    Lol, totally BRug. Good to know there are others representing my generation positively

    As for the origin of this specific practice...that may well be true. Of course a quick Google search could reveal this if anyone cares to have a go. However, to me it's the principle of this idea as we see it today. Going out of our way to help or protect a woman, simply because we wish to conduct ourselves as courteous gentlemen!

    Traditionally the sword arm should not be trapped between lady and gent, it is all about protecting the fairer sex from run-away horses, ruffians and splashed excrement. Modern feminist may say it presumes weakness but I think it is still a nice gesture like opening doors, etc.

    Looks like she may be a little cold. He could offer her his jacket.

    In some cultures the visible offense is that she is not walking five steps behind her man in proper subservience, but at least she is carrying all the burdens, the old "god is great" and "corrupting temptresses just get between a man and his god" party line. I prefer the Christian chivalry values.
