Why does a gentleman stop and allow a lady to pass before him?

As a human, w81507_ladygentlema_lge are all born of women. I had a mother (despite persistent rumors to the contrary) and have an obligation of reverence and gratitude to her. This obligation applies to all women, for I would have all individuals give honor and respect to my mother, and therefore am willing to provide it to all the others of her sex.

As a man I am grateful to the benevolence shown to me by women who have found it in their hearts to love a less than perfect (tragically flawed in fact) man. This gratitude is extended to all women who by their very nature love freely and benevolently, if given the chance.

Finally, the euphoric beauty to be found in women of all ethnicities and ages is cause for rejoicing and contemplation by men. Every woman, every one, carries that spark blatantly displayed, carefully or profoundly hidden but yet is it there and may be observed if one will only stand and wait.

Therefore men of honor stop and allow ladies to pass by, so that they may behold them both coming and going in wonder, awe, and reverence.
