10 Examples of Double Standards Many People Still Go Along With
Applying different standards to one set of individuals than to another in a given circumstance is known as using double standards. Although they exist in many areas of our life, gender-related issues are perhaps where double standards are most prevalent. The most startling thing is how frequently we apply such norms to individuals around us without even realizing it.
We at votreART urge the abolition of all double standards now in use, but let’s first assess our own adherence to them.
We have totally different attitudes toward dads and moms.
Dads are often praised for whatever they do for their kid, while a mother is often criticized for the same actions.
We tend to reproach “those days” whenever we see a woman in a bad mood.
The body hair topic is still a heavily discussed one.
We relate differently to debates between men and women.
And, of course, we relate differently to the appearance of gray hair as well.
Even in fictional stories, when a man flies he’s a hero, but when a woman does that she’s a witch.
We believe it’s ok for a woman to release her stress through tears and we consider a crying man a dweeb.
We justify every mistake a man makes and generalize women’s mental abilities when it comes to tiny mistakes.
We have different body standards for genders:
We have a “You go, girl” attitude toward curvy girls with skinny guys and accuse slim girls of being materialistic when we see them with a heavier man.
Do you find yourself guilty of any of the aforementioned double standards? What other existing double standards can you come up with?
