A Long Overdue 'Thank You' To Men Everywhere Who Prove That Chivalry Isn't Dead

A Long Overdue 'Thank You' To Men Everywhere Who Prove That Chivalry Isn't Dead

Gentleman: a civilized, educated, sensitive, or well-mannered man.

Growing up in the south, a lot of aspects of your life become normal to you. Things like saying “y’all”, loving the SEC, talking a little slower, and of course-the heat/humidity mixture that in the summer months makes you hate your decision to settle down here.

Another thing, especially as a girl, that I have become accustomed to is chivalry.

If you believe that chivalry is dead, go to a small southern town, and I believe your mind will be changed.

However, that doesn’t mean it is always the norm everywhere else, and those men who actually do it, may not always get the 'thank you' they deserve. So, to all the chivalrous boys out there, here’s your long overdue thank you.

THANK YOU to the boys out there who open doors for girls.

Whether it is a car door or a door to a building, you are appreciated. Yes, I can technically do it myself, but you going out of your way to do it for me even though you may not know who I am is pretty awesome. To any boy of any age who has ever opened a door for me, thank you so much, you’re great.

THANK YOU to all the fellas in this world who have lent me your jacket when I’m cold.

I know that if I’m cold, you probably are too, so the fact that you’re giving up your comfort for me is super sweet of you. Any man who goes out of his way to ensure the contentment of another person above his own contentment is a stellar human being, so thank you for doing that for me and other girls everywhere.

THANK YOU to the fine gents who have ever asked to carry something for me that was heavy, especially when you saw me struggling.

Neither of us probably wanted to carry that heavy object but I think you’re rad for offering. I honestly could have carried it on my own, but when you're willing to take some of the pressure off of me and put it on yourself, that means so much.

THANK YOU to all the boys out there who prove daily chivalry isn’t dead.

I realize that it isn't always the most convenient system on your end, but I, and many other girls out there, sincerely appreciate every chivalrous and gentlemanly act you've ever done for us. So thank you, and keep being wonderful.

Look, I Don't Want Your Boy, But 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' Makes Me Feel Incredible

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.


I have seen so many thoughts and complaints that Ariana Grande's new song, "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" is shallow.

Some are even saying, "this song just perpetuates everything that is wrong with dating and relationships in society today."

But, girl, I have to disagree.

You see, just because I sing this song at the top of my lungs in both my dorm's shower and alone in my car, I am not going to steal anyone's boyfriend.

I am simply pretending like I am some kind of bad chick that no one should mess with but in reality, I apologize for walking in someone's direction.

And, let's say, if I were to say something lighthearted or friendly to him and he responds with actions that propose cheating, he wasn't a good boyfriend in the first place.

Listen, girls: stop being so insecure.

You have a boyfriend. He loves you. He chose you. If another girl comes by and his eyes dart her way, his heart wasn't in it all the way.

Not everything is deeper than the skin.

Now, let me be clear, I am not saying that it's OK for girls to go around and try to steal boyfriends. Actually, that's a pretty trashy move that no one should attempt. I know it happens, though. I know it is everyone's worst fear.

However, there is no life living within fear of rejection and being left. If those are the things that linger in the back of your mind, you will never taste the freedom of living.

Truly living.

So am I a bad person, considering that 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' is my anthem?

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

So no, just listening to Ari's new bop doesn't make me a bad person or a boyfriend stealer.

7 Tiny Things College Dudes Do That Give Off Major Small Dick Energy

If you exhibit any of these signs, re-evaluate yourself and your choices.


If you don't know what "small dick energy" means, let me give you the Urban Dictionary definition: "someone who shows off masculinity by being cocky, showing off, overly confident to overcompensate their 4.2 inch fully erect dick."

If you're afraid you might have this tragic disease: let me explain some of the key symptoms:

1. Adding girls you don't know on any social media platform just because you think they're hot.

I never thought friend requests could be so annoying.

2. Messaging said girls with some stupid pick-up-line to start a conversation.

What is this? Tinder?

3. Getting mad and aggressive when said girls don't message you back.

Bonus points for calling them mean names!

4. Getting even angrier when they do message back saying they're not interested.

Your insecurity isn't sexy.

5. Putting others down or not treating others with respect.

If you can't be polite to your servers or other customer service employees, you are the epitome of small dick energy.

6. Cornering girls at bars or parties and making them obviously uncomfortable.

If she doesn't seem interested in the conversation, she's not interested in you. Take a hint and walk away.

7. Any sort of forcefulness, pressure, or prejudice coming from a guy as he's talking to a girl.

BIG indicators of small dick energy and also toxic masculinity!

Now look, I know it sounds like I'm being a bitch, but let me tell you that I, and every other female on this planet regardless of race, sexuality, or anything that differentiates us, has been a victim of men with small dick energy. And it's not fucking cute anymore. In fact, it never was. If anything, it's uncomfortable, it's annoying, and it's concerning.

A girl is not a bitch, a slut, a loser, or any other name you want to throw at her if she doesn't like your advances. Calling her that is probably going to make her want to suck your (small) dick even less than before, if possible. We don't know you, and even if we did, we don't owe you anything. And if your first reaction to rejection is name-calling and blatant aggression, then you are likely a toxic person as it is who's got some deep-seated anger issues that you should probably take care of. And if you think that treating someone like that is okay and don't see anything wrong with that, then you might just be a psychopath, honestly.

Have some class and self-respect, guys, and leave the #smalldickenergy back in 2018.
