I Am Tired of Double Standards

They suck 382 People


    I am tired of the double standard when it comes to the clothing we wear. Women can wear any type of clothing they desire and nothing is ever said to them. It is fashionable for young women to wear guy shirts and hoodies. It is sexy if a woman wears a man's dress shirt and nothing...

    In Today's World

    The many double standards that plague the world today have made it hard for many to find their way without some type of guidance.  Many times, we are faced with legal challenges that have come to being simply because people are demanding that they be first above all else.

    It Just Doesn't Make Sense

    short and simple---double standards don't make sense--at all. Stop branding people, labeling them, stereotyping, discriminating. It just freakishly does not make sense.

    Too Little to Late

    People are just now seeing the double standards that have been forced upon us by those that feel we have suppressed their abilities.  There was at one time simple standards for everything.  It wasn't until lawyers, psychologists and people that felt a need to complain...

    A Recent Encounter With Sexism.

    Double Standards

    I think at times that the glass ceiling really does exist.  Why is it that one of my male co-workers was given Tenure and I'm stuck as an Indef - we both started at the same time, I do more work then he does, and most of what I end up doing is correcting his mistakes...

    I get so sick of the double standard

    where I have to put up with constant lectures about putting the economy above my own interests, and making sacrifices to get by, and work within this greedy, human degrading economic system. Yet, if I speak out against this greedy economic system that care more about profit...
