I think the knights were really onto something: they would send their sons off to serve other knights as pages and later squires so they wouldn't be around their mothers, who would spoil them.

Just look at today's kids - they're there because they're raised by women.

Dude, I don't think you know what the fuck you're talking about. Clearly the halberd is the ultimate in child-raising.

You've got a hook to drag the children back, you've got a spear tip to poke them to get them moving, and you've got an axe to chop off their gangrenous limbs.

Europeans don't have any damned PTA meetings. If a knight has a problem with the way the school is running things they just go in and kill the teacher, set fire to the school to get rid of any demons that inhabited it because surely only a demon could cause a bad teacher, raid the nearest unaligned village for a suitable replacement teacher, and then build a new school out of mud, stone, thatch, and shit.

Like they had public education anyway. Education for most people consisted of going to church, and having your parents hit you when you did something wrong.

Education existed for the upper classes, and involved a fairly similar amount of getting hit, but interspersed with opportunities to hit other children, learning to sing and dance, poetry, horseriding, and most importantly, social graces. Failure in any of these endeavors involved possible ear boxing. And don't think that princes and such didn't get hit. It was considered wrong not to punish children. And whoever was in charge of the kids got to hit them. (And don't smarm about faggotry and poems. It was all epics and heroic tales, like Beowulf, and Carolingian stories, or in England, Arthurian stuff.)

Samurai families were also really tough on kids, and made them do things to man up, and be respectful.

>> No.12619855

>Education for most people consisted of going to church

All church services were in Latin, which common people did not speak. All education the average person received was from their family, and related to the family business, which was usually farming.

I know. I should have elaborated and said it was really the general atmosphere of religious sentiment, and being vaguely harangued by the village priest occasionally over matters he probably didn't really understand himself in any systematic way beyond what the locals felt anyway.

The whole element of strong religious sentiment should not be ignored though. Sure, a lot of it was apocryphal, but it was a big thing for everyone in medieval society. So I really should have included that in European noble education. Piety, Social graces, and your essential adult functions like killing things, or sewing, or possibly becoming a priest (only if you were kind of a wimp of course, or so insistently and annoyingly pious it was the only option.(The cultural stuff was partially cultural, and partially educational, really. A lot of the idea people had about what constituted what to emulate came from stories and poetry after all.)

Regarding chivilrous behavior, it only counts if you maintain it at all times, even (especially) when you don't actually like the person, so it doesn't really seem like simpering servility, but rather instinctual altruism.

No, I really don't. One of my guy friends has a drop-dead gorgeous magnificent-bastard for a friend who did exactly that to me on multiple occasions. He actually came up to me one day and say, "You know what, one day I'm going to sleep in your bed."

To which I said: "Fuck off, I have a boyfriend." This was after I got to know that he was a humongous asshole, and stopped kidding around with him when he was forward with me.

You know what that asshole did when he realized it was NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN? He literally SLEPT IN MY BED one night when I was away visiting my boyfriend. I knew, because when I went to put away my suitcase, I saw that my sheets were all fucked up and someone had turned down the comforter, which is not how I make my bed.

I asked about it, and he comes up to me and goes, "Told you I'd sleep in your bed."

Now, I will admit that early I was curious about him on a purely physical/sexual level just because he's an attractive guy, but I would have felt that way regardless of his personality. But when I even think for an instant about all of the girls he's had sex with, and the fact that (in all likelihood) he's probably infected with something, and that his behavior is absolutely appalling - it ruins it for me completely.

If I were just cruising for a good fuck at a bar, yeah, I'd take whatever was the most attractive and as far as I could guess had the biggest cock - but when it comes to relationships, absolutely not.

And since I don't have sex outside of relationships, well . . . there you go.

Women with self-esteem problems like people who treat them like trash. I prefer someone who doesn't treat me like a piece of meat, since I'm not a fucking 17 year old.

I hate to rain on this, man, but I think you took it kind of personally. Chances are, he was just a goofball that didn't really know how to deal with being an adult and tried handling things the best way he knew how, i.e. like a harmless goofball in high school. When you didn't react the way he expected, he probably got hurt and dealt with it badly, hence the awkward forwardness.
