Welcome x. Mind the pun, but we were just recently discussing chromosomes. Weren't we, Isadora?

Yes, we were and I will follow up on that one as soon as I think of something appropriate.

The Y-chrmosome will not fade away as long as it keeps opening doors, pulling out chairs and subtly convincing the X-chromosome they are worthy of hanging on to awhile longer.

I really wouldn't want to be in a man's shoes in today's world. If you demonstrate some type of chivalry, chances are you'll hear how she could do that herself. If you don't, then you're not being considerate. It looks like a fine line to tread and you're bound to be pushed off for whatever you do - or don't do.

I'm always being called a gentleman.
I'll open doors, pick up dropped items, help women get buggies down steps, get stuff off high shelves for people.
Name something chivelrous and i've done it.

Thrown your cloak over a puddle, so the queen can step on it when she gets out of her carriage?

I have indeed ;)
Nah, she shouldn't be so bloody stupid as to not walk around the thing! She is the queen after all.

As you said - she is the queen after all... She's expecting you to be there with the cloak. And she probably won't pop for the drycleaning bill either.
