Double Standard, Anyone?I was just about to open my email when I saw this article and had to check it out:
Long story short, it's an app called Boyfriend Trainer, where you can slap, electrocute, or mace a virtual boyfriend for what most people would call minor transgressions, including drinking their girlfriend’s drink or leaving his shirt on the ground.
If anything came out featuring men doing these actions to women, it would be taken off the (virtual) shelves, and there would probably be numerous lawsuits and firings as a result. As it is, a lot of people are outraged, showing that perhaps common sense is, at least partly, still at play.
I'm just waiting for the anti-feminists to jump on this one, saying that it's feminism at work. News flash: IT'S NOT. It's misandry at work, and it's ridiculous!
