50 Commonly Accepted Double Standards

Double-Standards Everywhere

a set of principles that allows greater freedom to one person or group than to another

These are the 50 commonly accepted double standards according to me:

  1. Virginity is important in women – not in men
  2. If a man sleeps around 100 women – he is a stud. If a woman sleeps with more than 1 man – she is a slut.
  3. Woman showing her breasts in public while only covering her nipple in a sexy dress is acceptable but woman breast feeding a baby is not
  4. If a Christian Man drives a car out of control into a crowd – “12 injured as drivers go out of control”. If a Muslim Man drives a car out of control into a crowd – News Headlines “Islamic Terrorists attempt to kill hundreds”.
  5. People claim God is one but get angry when you convert from your religion to another one worshipping the ‘one god’

  7. A Rich man with a Bentley comes up to you and asks you “Would you like to come out with me?” You smile. The poor man on a cycle comes up to you and asks you “Would you like to come out with me?” You slap him.
  8. Sexy girl posts an update “Life is worth living” – receives 1,000 likes and 490 comments on how intelligent and amazing the quote is. Ramu, ordinary guy posts an update “Life is worth living” – receives 1 like and 1 comment stating “From where did you copy this quote.”
  9. Billionaire posts on Facebook “How is everyone today?” – gets 13,000 comments in 10 minutes. Mark the normal sales guy posts “How is everyone today?” gets his mom posting “I’m fine” after 1 week.
  10. Only your religion is true for which if someone asks your evidence, you call it ‘have faith’ but if someone else tells you their religion is true, you ask them for evidence.
  11. When falling in love – every silly thing your lover does is “Awww”. When breaking up – every genuine thing your lover does is “Manipulative”

  24. Man massaging a woman’s leg is sexy. Woman massaging a Mans’ leg is slavery.
