What does that mean?

Chivalry has always been a term used to describe the courteous, polite or gentle behavior expected of someone in certain positions in society – mostly men. There are many definitions on what chivalrous behavior entails but one thing remains true: it is no longer a way for which people behave with each other.

It seems as if we have forgotten how important it was and still can be to show respect, kindness and generosity regardless of gender.
