Did Women Cause The Death Of Chivalry?

There’s an article on Elite Daily called “Why Chivalry Is Dead, From a Man’s Perspective” by John Picciuto (http://elitedaily.com/dating/sex/why-chivalry-is-dead-from-a-mans-perspective/ ) which is about his ideas on why chivalry is dead. In summary, to Picciuto chivalry is gone, men no longer take women out on fancy dates with deep conversations but more like to bars with small talk. Picciuto also says that men are no longer treating women the way they were brought up to. He goes on to say and I quote “women, for one reason or another, have become complacent and allowed men to get away with adhering to the bare minimum” and I completely agree.
I’m going to say that the reason why women aloud men to lack with chivalrous acts is because they want equality and equality means to be treated the same. Is it right of me to say that I want equality and chivalry? Chivalry is dead because women have aloud it and most men have stopped doing these things because women feel it is as if to say women are the weaker soul. Chivalry towards women does not mean they are weak; they’re basic acts of kindness, gestures of affection and are definitely needed to pursue relationships. If women could just see that these little acts of kindness aren’t there to belittle them but are there to make them feel nice then maybe the divorce rate would decrease and maybe there wouldn’t be such a confusion with equality and just plain being nice. I don’t want to go bars for small talk; I want a 3 course meal with meaningful conversation and I want they guys to open the door for me all the while, I want the same salary, I want the same opportunities but with just a little bit of appreciation. Women need to allow men to show kindness with chivalry and that’s all there is to it. Chivalry will be back in no time if we change our ideas on it.
