Capturing the mundane to create interesting stories

Chivalry

S-Chivalry-003DSC 2019-martosc

….at its best. No rain, no sun, I will still put this umbrella over your head.

 

 

Side Story:

I met an over-sensitive extreme-feminist sometime in the past. She said that ‘chivalry’ is a disgrace to women. It’s a disrespectful act towards women.

I can only scratch my head because all I do was opening a door for her as act of courtesy — not because she’s a woman, and certainly not because I thought she was too weak to open the door herself.

I was born and raised by a strong mother and two independent elder sisters, and now am married to a super wife — and they all have my utmost respect.

 

 

Men and women are definitely different, and my respect is not gender-based.

By the way, today is Mother’s Day in Indonesia. Happy Mother’s day!

    • Thanks, Hesty. Iya, interest saya ada di dokumentasi sih… jadi biasanya berhubungan dengan manusia. Terkadang foto lanskap juga. Macro? Not my cup of tea… and don’t have interest in it either.

      • I like your human interest capture and interpretation either. If you start capturing bugs, I will stop visiting (yes this is a “threat”, I don’t wish to see a fly up close and personal :)).

  3. I agree with you as well. I find it nice when a man open door for me. My husband would open the car door for me when it’s cold – I think that’s nice.

    • I guess there’s a thin line between a gentleman and being disrespectful to a feminist :-)
