A double standard: a rule or principle which is unfairly applied in different ways to different people or groups.
Of course men have had an unfair advantage over the years and even at present. Voting, higher pay, larger number of permissible sex partners, etc. I find it brilliant that women have pushed themselves to the front line of the limelight. We must continue in that light.
I am a firm believer in respect for women. We are not all sex symbols, looking for a man to suit our needs or expecting a male shoulder to cry on. We are not the weakest link in the office and we don’t all need 5 hours in the salon. But that does not mean that we have all men figured out either. That does not bridge the gap in our fundamental differences and that does not make it’s OK for us to shove some idea of female supremacy down a man’s throat.
STANDARDS: THE DOUBLE STANDARDS:
men need to let us earn the same X men need to pick up the tabs after eating out
men need to stop objectifying women X all men are dogs, think with their balls
I don’t depend on any man X Men need to stand up for women to sit, open the door and carry the shopping bags.
The truth is we are not equal or unequal, we are just not the same: There is no one running things without the other and there is no hypothetical scale that will provide a real measurement of supremacy for us. Women deserve respect, love and care as much as the next guy. Men deserve a stroke on their God given ego every once in a while. (Please don’t argue about the ego…no boob carrier has that much testosterone in their system).
Don’t objectify women or men. But feel free to call someone what they are: A lazy, selfish man is just that… not the entire male population. A gold digging ***** is just that…“her” not the entire female population.
Ps: in your quest to be an equal (or equally opportuned) try not to subdue men, ridicule their ego or make generalizations about who they are and what gets them going.
But do not stop fighting for what you deserve.
