Chivalry

Since the dawn of time, one genre of music has dominated and ruled with an iron fist

I guess that real chivalry would be better defined as respect than protectiveness, what do you think?

There is a great Swedish song about what chivalry really was like (my translation):

Mary walks on the road

Mary walks on the road
Leading to the village
Singing and laughing
At the birds up in the sky
She is going to the square
To sell a little bread
The sun is rising hot and huge
Painting the sky red

Then she meets a highborn lord
And a horse with great mane
He says: I am the king's man
And I take what I want
And you are all too pretty
To not have a man
Follow me to the forest
And I'll show you what I can

She's forced down into the grass
And he touches her body
She wriggles and asks him
For god's sake to stop
But the knight just laughs
Drunk on his own lust
So she takes his knife and stabs
And the knight is dead

They captured Mary
She was stoned for murder
But the knight's memory
Was celebrated every year
The lords become heroes
The people is condemned
And we who see it all
Are told that we dreamt
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

...
Which has nothing whatsoever to do with chivalry, but everything to do with class brutality.

I have a midget who follows me and beats coconut shells. Does that count?

Chivalry is not stabbing a guy in the back.

But what does chivalry say on the subject of ball-stabbing?

That falls under the category of Shivalry.

Chivalry sounds too French. Or horse-like, (Cheval).

Agreed. The first time I heard the word chivalry, I thought it was horseback riding or something. :?

Which, of course, is not manly.
