A gentlemenly rebuttal

Victor LeVasseur | Thursday, April 14, 2011

The Men of Morrissey Manor take great exception to slandering of those who identify themselves as gentlemen in Humanity’s Bro’s recent article (Apr. 13). The iconic men Morrissey produces have long identified themselves as gentlemen first, and prided themselves on chivalrous conduct and always being ready, willing and able to indulge the faintest whim of a member of the fairer sex. It is clear that Humanity’s Bro has never encountered one of these upstanding Manorites from the article’s description of a gentleman as a stiff prissy with little self-control and no regard for the comfort of a lady. This is of course nonsense and the complete opposite of how a true gentleman strives to act. However the ladies of Notre Dame wish to dress, they should know that any true gentlemen will treat them in a courteous and honorable manner and anyone who does not is unworthy of the title our dying breed is trying to uphold.
