Day by Day is a daily read, and today, he makes the point that chivalry is a credo that required as much from women as from men.

If you want to be treated like a lady, act like a lady.  Chivalrous men will respond in kind.  It's a point that Instapundit makes frequently, and it's one that I stress in all my relationships.

Chivalry isn't about opening doors.

Excellent point! You get treated like you treat others...

This is the most defining thing that Mason & Dixon's Line shows us. Below the line, the two-way principle of Chivalry (from French, "like Knights") prevails, while above the Line, it is not the rule, gets scarcer the farther one gets from the Line.

Quod erat demonstratum, est.
