As the word is still in use in both meanings I find it rather strange to have it labeled "obsolete". The second meaning have softened over time, is maybe most often used ironically, and is dated. "obsolete" is however not in accordance with Glossary:obsolete -- Oxel 15:22, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

I agree, and I don't know why it was changed. \Mike 15:18, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
I agree but disagree that it's dated. The concept may have disappeared but how else would you describe it? In that case "historical" would be closer to the truth, but that's only true of the current Swedish culture. The best solution would be to remove the qualifier altogether.

NEO defines the word thus: "(kvinnlig) person som följer med och övervakar ung kvinna i manligt sällskap med uppgift att hålla den manliga uppvaktningen inom bestämda gränser ⟨mest histor.⟩" Diupwijk (talk) 15:41, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
