An idea developed first by Queen Eleanor of England. Basically, it encouraged gentelmenly behavior between knights, and proposed a system of courting ladies to gain their hearts instead of dragging them home by their hair (sarcasm).
The White Knight very politely sliced his opponents head off and carried it back to his lady. He slept on the couch that night.

Something that true feminists hate and bitchy feminists complain about being "dead." It's basically being a gentleman, but no longer persists frequently because modern feminism has caused many men to give up on making women actually satisfied with the respect they receive.
Guy: *Doesn't open the door for a stranger who just so happens to have a vagina.*

Stranger (SJW): Ugh. Chivalry is dead. *types #killallmen into phone*

Feminist: If you want to be truly independent and free of the shackles of the so-called patriarchy you talk so much about, why do you need a man to open the door for you?

Stranger: OH-EM-GEE. I am SO triggered right now. I need a safe space where my bullshit won't be questioned.
