The study >> http://pwq.sagepub.com/content/35/2/227.full#T1OPINION: I am a feminist. I also like men to be chivalrous, kind to women and open doors before I walk through them. It's polite; it's manly and it's darn bloody sexy. So you can imagine my surprise when I came across a new feminist study the other day, which claimed that chivalry should be banned and that men who practise it are guilty of so-called benevolent sexism.
Say what!? Yep, according to the study, titled Seeing the Unseen, carried out by psychologists Janet Swim (of Pennsylvania State University) and Julia Becker (of Philipps-University Marburg, Germany), men who open doors for women are guilty of sexist behaviour and they should be stopped immediately.

Should chivalry be banned?
