I Hate Double Standards

What's good for the goose, is good for the gander! 1,105 People

    Why do men treat women like objects?

    It's completely okay for a man to have a girl give him a picture of her in her bra and underwear and of her breast. But if a girl asks a guy they come off as aggressive or desperate. Double standards literally make me sick.

    I probably didn't think much about it

    until I saw the movie Ex Machine and the movie contains a lot of nude scenes but the thing is when it comes to nude scenes in American movies it's always women...YOUNG and PRETTY women with fit, slim bodies and this disgusts me because you'll almost never see full frontal nude...

    So it's not ok if a man hits a girl

    but if it's Vice versa it's fine and people think she is a strong woman and the man is weak, same thing with rape. If I hit a girl I should get in the same amount of trouble if I hit a man. It really gets me angry 😡😡😡😡😡 and by that logic if a man is getting hit by...

    I feel like black children are often deemed

    as deserving less respect than other children. Specifically white children. And I say that based on both anecdotes and things that I've observed on a larger scale. So it's mainly anecdotal but I think it has some truth to it. Growing up, I'd always notice that in schools the...

    Where's My Ribbon?

    When I was 12 my father taught me how to drive a standard transmission.  At the time he merely wanted help in the hay fields and I was the only body left.  I just wasn't big enough to throw bails around like the others were.  I got the distinct privilege of driving...

    In my opinion, or more like what I was made to

    believe, There seems to be double standards that favors women over men. If a woman looks into a men's restroom, it is considered flirtatious. However, if a man was to look into women's restroom, it is considered disgusting, perverted and obnoxious. (Not that I would consider...

    Today, i wore my favorite pajamas to school

    becuase I can. They are fluffly and warm, but they are 4x my size so they sag. People keep saying "your pants are sagging" "why are you sagging your pants" Its annoying. How is it okay for guys to sag their pants but not girls?

    as men do in this 21st century. It's not the case in my society. Arranged marriages prevail here. And when a guys family comes to the girls house, the girl is expected to come out and stand in front of all. The guys family views her as if they view an item to be purchased. It's...

    Sexism related to clothes and appearance is as stupid and shallow as it gets. If a woman dresses in men's clothes it's no big deal, but if a man dresses in women's clothes there are deranged lunatics who want to hurt you. Much of this hatred comes from misogynists or some...

    I hate small minded people.

    People who think gay people are 'unnatural'. People who think black and white shouldn't be together. People who judge others of their lifestyle before knowing their true story. Also, how people think saying someone is 'too thin' or 'needs to put on weight' or even 'anorexic' is...

    Why are lesbian women more accepted

    than gay men? Why is it ok to see two women kissing but never two men? I don't get it. I see this behavior in men more than anyone. Two people kissing or being in a relationship is the same no matter what gender, yet one is "sexier/hotter" than the other.
