I was in a taxi the other day and it stopped to pick up a certain lady. I consider myself a gentleman so I did the right thing. I got out of the car and opened the door for her. In the movies the lady would have smiled and said a polite thank you and that would have been the end of that. But unfortunately this is your typical Kenyan lady; she gave me a look which was a combination of suspicion and disgust.
I guess in her mind she was thinking that I was some sort of creep and that the simple act of opening the door had a hidden agenda.
The so-called Kenyan ‘ladies’ have double standards. On one hand they mourn and whine about the lack of real gentlemen within our borders, and yet when we go out of our way to treat them like proper ladies our efforts are met with suspicion and most of the time they go unnoticed.
Your average Kenyan female wants to be treated like a lady, she would like for the men to pull out chairs for her, open doors for her and not let her do manly acts like changing car tires; and yet she does not behave like a proper lady. You will find her seated at the bar drinking a beer straight from a wine glass,swearing like a sailor and picking fights with strangers. I do understand that we live in the twenty-first century and don’t get me wrong, I support the women’s liberation movement to the fullest but you should not forget your femininity.
Kenyan women (I refuse to use the word ‘ladies’) are wholly responsible for the death of the gentleman. Chivalry is dead because these so-called ladies would not recognise it if it slapped them in the face. You will only be treated like a lady if you act like one.
