Double standards that many do not understand.

Before I say anything, I want to make something clear: YES, I know women face double standards of their own all the time. I mean come on, who doesn't? It's all over the media for crying out loud. But the double standards I want to point out are the ones that MEN face, the ones few people seem to care about.

Example 1: Women are brave if they hit men. Men are evil, brutal perverts if they hit women (even if they had a very good reason).

Example 2: Women who refuse to marry are strong and self-reliant. Men who refuse to marry are cowardly, immature manchildren who have commitment issues.

Example 3: Women are romantic if they suddenly kiss men. Men are perverted if they suddenly kiss women.

Example 4: It's just a mistake if women go into a men's restroom. Men are pigs if they go into a women's restroom.

Example 5: If a woman stares at a man's crotch, it's flirting. If a man stares at a woman's chest, it's offensive.

Example 6: If a woman wants to split the bill, she's independent. If a man wants to split the bill, he's cheap.

Example 7: If a group of girls chase an attractive guy, it's okay. But if a group of guys chase an attractive girl, it's automatically gang rape, even if the guys are chasing the girl for the same reason the girls are chasing the guy.

Example 8: A woman rejects a man for his weight and everybody and their mother tells the woman that she deserves to have high standards and shouldn't have to "settle" for anything less, and they degrade the man for his body and tell him to "pick up some weights and exercise, fatass." A man rejects a woman for her weight, and everyone attacks the man for having "sexist, disgusting standards of women."

Example 9: If a woman decides to have sex with her husband while he is asleep, it's considered kinky. But if a man decides to have sex with his wife while she is asleep, it's considered rape.

Example 10: If a woman cries, it's normal. If a man cries, he's a little bitch who needs to toughen up.

Example 11: Men are disgusting for using fleshlights, but it's perfectly fine for a woman to use a dildo.

Example 12: "Feminists" fight for a woman's right to wear what she wants without being attacked for it, yet they attack a male scientist who landed a satelite on a comet for wearing a shirt that was designed and given to him by his female friend.

Example 13: Women do get attacked for sleeping around while men tend to get praised for it, that is true. But it's the other way around for men. Men get attacked if they DON'T sleep around, while women are praised for it.

Example 14: Men are subject to the draft during times of war, and they can't say no, simply because they're men. Women aren't subject to the draft during times of war, simply because they're women.

Example 15: Everyone takes the rape of women very seriously, and they should. But everyone also thinks that men can't get raped, and will ridicule him if he tries to tell someone and if he still told someone, no one would believe him. Rape is a very real, very horrid thing that happens to ANYONE.

Example 16: Organizations dedicated to researching, treating, and curing breast cancer receive an average cumulative of over $800,000,000 annually, while organizations dedicated to researching, treating, and curing prostate cancer receive about a third of that. Both cancers affect roughly the same amount of people. I'm not saying that we should stop funding breast cancer, no one in the right mind would say that. I'm saying that we should start giving the same amount of attention to prostate cancer as well.

These are just some of the main double standards that men are forced to deal with, and men get attacked for speaking up about it saying that we're "complaining" and "crazy MRAs." Ladies, we know the crap you go through. We know that you have been severely oppressed for a long time. Just remember that you're not the only ones. We need to be defended too, but barely anyone wants to. Because they think we don't need it, or that we don't deserve it.

  • I'll agree with all of these... Except for a bit of the first one - I think the reason most men are considered horrible abusers when they hit women is because they can really do some damage to a woman - of course I'm not saying its right for anyone to hit anyone regardless of gender. I don't think it's okay for a woman to hit a man unless it's used for self defence if he is attacking her. And I could deal with a guy using force on a woman if she attacked him and he couldn't use his strength to restrain her. Or you know if she came at him with a knife or gun or bat or something

  • You're awesome bro!
