Yo refusing to walk through a door because a woman is holding it open for you is not chivalry, it’s called being an asshole.
When you hold a door open for someone, it should have nothing to do with their gender/sex/identity and everything to do with you just being a considerate human being.
I actually had a guy grab my waist, physically pick me up, yank me off of the door handle, and carry me through the door because I did this.
I reflexively open doors for folks and older dudes seem to hate it the most.
Most of the men I work with will step behind me to take the door from me. Very obnoxious. Won’t stop me from trying and constantly doing it until they figure it out. I have the patience.

"People are perfectly happy to see women as sex objects, but the actual biologic of our bodies is apparently gross and unmentionable."
- Our Bodies, Ourselves.
Female bodies must always be:
- naturally beautiful (but hairless)
- sexually available (but not slutty)
- curvy (but not skinny, and certainly not fat)
- fertile (but not menstrual)
So… good luck?
This is simple to logically smash. The same magnitude of expectations are put on men. Please, stop, you’re just making yourself look stupid.
Are men socially expected to shave their legs or armpits? Does their sexual value depend on how they shave their pubic hair?
Are men shamed for having too much sex? Or is a “male whore” simply called a “player” (if even given a title at all) and perceived as the ultimate male?
Are the political achievements of powerful men (ex: Barack Obama, Mitt Romney) belittled by conversations about their bodies like their female counterparts (ex: Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin)? Do interviewers ask male actors about their dieting techniques on the red carpet?
Are men defined by their ability to produce offspring? Or are their successes independent from marriage and children? Are they asked about their family plans in job interviews?
Look, men certainly have their problems. There’s no denying that fact. Masculinity is a hugely limiting construction that crushes boys and men while encouraging the oppression of girls and women. And that’s why feminist analysis of masculinity is hugely important— see the work of Jackson Katz, Michael Messner, Tony Porter, and Michael Kimmel for more.
But what’s important to note is that critiques of men are framed as failures of masculinity (aka bridges into femininity). Think of the insults: “pussy,” “fag,” “bitch”… They all equate failure with women.
So yes— men are oppressed by patriarchal structures. But they also benefit from them. Gender oppression is not an equal battle.
