    Sexual feudalism: a history of the male sex role (as White Knight)

    "The gynocentric customs guiding relationships between the sexes originate in old Europe in the form ofchivalry and courtly-love. The tradition began in 12th century France and Germany and spread rapidly to all the principle courts of Europe. From there it filtered into popular culture, being transported eventually to the new world on the wings of colonial expansionism Ė to the Americas, India, Australia and so on.

    Why is this history important to men? Because itís a history we continue to enact today, unconsciously, and its consequences for men have far reaching psychological implications.

    In the medieval model men offered themselves as vassals to women who took on the status of overlords in sexual relations Ė this because women were widely viewed as menís moral superiors. As evinced by the first troubadours, men pledged homage and fealty to women who actively played the part of manís superior. This feudalistic formula, which I will tentatively label sexual feudalism, is attested by writers from the Middle Ages onward, including by Lucrezia Marinella who in 1600 AD recounted that women of even lower socioeconomic classes were treated as superiors by men who, she recounts, acted as servants or beasts born to serve them.

    i thought chivalry was something the guy who wrote King Author and the Round Table made up while he was in prison.

    Chivalry was chiefly concerned with battle and social etiquette.

    Not sure where the romance aspect came from, probably from various 19th century poets and authors.
    I work in financial planning. I am interested in metal (all kinds), miniature painting and PC gaming. I live in Scotland.

    I think it was through books like Le Morte D' Arthur.

    Actually, the concept of chivalry towards women came back from the crusades, which is why it shows up in the 1200s. This is a middle eastern tradition; I believe originally Persian. If you think Islam is the patriarchal religion you need to study it more. The man is the slave to the wife in Islam. Any money she makes or has is hers while any thing she needs or wants he has to provide. They haven't gone as far bad as the western world has, but as in all societal structures, gynocentrism is the driving force. All societies are based on serving women and are built on the dead bodies of men. It has always been thus. Any feminist attempt to paint the past as male oppression is, as usual, total BS.

    Chivalry had two parts [it's dead now].

    The first was an honor code among combatants to not use low weapons and tactics like crossbows, cheap shots and dirty fighting like ambushes. Also it extended to granting mercy, parole and ransom towards what amounts to the rich fighting among themselves and sometimes killing the men-at-arms. Chivalry also gave the commoners a reason to spare the noble's lives [ransom].

    The second element was to extend courtesy and protections to those who could not reciprocate
    Courtesy towards women who were never expected to be combatants
    Courtesy, duties towards the weak and the poor but humble folks and the elderly.

    So essentially it was a beta strategy code of behaviors designed to harness / channel strong otherwise alpha types into performing behaviors and restraining their desires while also serving the king or a lord [the real alpha who was all too often treacherous, deceitful and most certainly would use any tactic (in secret) to win]
    First date: A job interview in which a slot-c tries to determine a man's financial suitability in relation to its desire for children.
