Chivalry is when a man respects a woman. It doesn't have to be standing when she walks in a room, (though that is one form of it) or opening her door for her, (again, that's always nice) it's just means that you recognize that she is a woman and thus deserves some respect. In today's culture this could mean not calling her "hot" or "sexy" but "beautiful" or "gorgeous" instead. Not grabbing her butt like she's some kind of animal, or whistling and cat calling when she walks by. It's just plain rude and degrading, and most women find it offensive.
When I think chivalry, I think a pure gentleman.... or Rhett Butler.....

Something women complain is dead even though it cannot logically exist in an equal society, which is something women wanted. It's one or the other.
Jesse lamented about the death of chivalry while she lambasted the days when men oppressed women which was a time when chivalry was common. Makes perfect sense.

something that's dead and should stay dead.
Son: Daddy, why do I have to let her go first? she's a creep to everybody.

Dad: Because, when somebody has a certain chemical called estrogen in their body, they automatically deserve more respect than you. It's called chauvinism, I mean chivalry.

Son: BULLCRAP!!

6.
The act of a self-deluded sucker. Self-destructive self-sacrifice in favor of those seeking to exploit or destroy the practioner. Self-debasement to those seeking exploitive profit and lack of due recriprocation. Often stupidly misconstrued by those practicing as honorable or altuistic.
Many travesties of justice, self-destruction, and the concealment and promotion of evil have come from the chivalry of fools.

Choosing to not rape a woman, just because you want to.
Me: "Hey, Jonathan, that bitch is fine."
Jonathan: "Yeah, but in the name of chivalry, we probably shouldn't rape her."
Me: "Yeah, you're right. Damn it."
