 What a great discussion.  I love the guy that held the door because he is a gentleman :).  I think chivalry is excellent, and it can be simple politeness.  I am thankful when I meet someone who is chivalrous!

Yes it should be brought back. What happened to good manners?

Men don't have to anything: people can be chivalrous, and no gender distinction is necessary.

If the person behind you is coming through the same door, hold it open for them without checking their underpants' contents first.

I think we should bring common courtesy back.

Common courtesy should be a must for all people. Chivalry is wonderful though.

I would love to see it come back.  I try to teach my kids to be kind and its about leading by example.  I try to model helping and courteous behavior.  I hope when my kids get older they will do the same.
