Title

Opinion "Chivalry is dead, and women killed it"

Description

This is opinion piece was written in response to articles written by women who argued that men don't take women on "sober dates" or act like "gentlemen" anymore. Adkins says that women are acting "less than ladylike", and proceeds to give several examples he has experienced (including one sexual assault when a woman grabbed his genitalia after he did not buy her a drink). His conclusion is that if women want men to take them on dates, women should "show [men]" that these examples don't apply to them.
