A Texas high school removed an assignment on “chivalry” that had female students cater to men like in medieval times.

Dallas Morning News reporter Brandi Addison Davis tweeted a photo of the assignment given to female students so they could demonstrate to the school how the code of chivalry and standards set in the medieval concept carries over into modern-day life.

The “ladies” were directed to follow the listed rules to get signatures in order to be “deemed worthy.” Examples of the rules are “dressing in a feminine manner to please the men,” never criticizing a man, lowering their heads, and curtsying for men.

Male students were given a similar assignment but the rules were less subservient, including dressing in suits and ties, helping ladies to their seats, and rising when a lady walks into the room.

Superintendent of Shallowater Schools Dr. Anita Herbert said in a statement to Insider that the assignment had been reviewed and “does not reflect our district and community values.” 

The matter has been addressed with the teacher, and the assignment was removed, Herbert said.
