Do you think some double standards in society are fair? Which?

Which do you think should be changed?

Abuse is OK if it is Female on Male.

Tired of Living... living... living... by these double standards... standards... standardssss...

-AB Soul don't forget the dash

Putting aside the lyrics of a song I love, I kind of think double standards are a good thing... To a certain extent. I think business wise there shouldn't be a double standard but "gender roles" should have double standards.

I think a lot of things are unfair and need to change but some things shouldn't

I don't think guys should look at women as being promiscuous for having a active sex life. I do think there is a certain way a women should carry herself but that's just me.

I honestly think the double standards balance each other out for the most part, but again there needs to be a few changes. Mainly for women, they have it hard.

Abuse is OK if it is Female on Male.

No it's not OK, it is actually viewed as a joke and makes the guy look worse than another guy abusing his girlfriend. IMHO.

@amalgamuniverse: Yeah that's my favorite song from Control Systems. I dunno why but I always forget the name of the song. I usually call it "Opposites Attract Part II." I'm weird like that.

At work, a man's opinion counts more than a woman's. At home, a woman's opinion counts more than a man's. It sucks for both genders.

If a man asks to split the bill he's cheap

If a woman asks to split the bill she's strong and independent

If a woman sleeps around she's a slut

If a man sleeps around he's a stud

The double standards, by definition, aren't fair.

Misandry enthusiasts masquerading as feminists show IMO the biggest double standards with their sexism.

Silly don't you know there is no such thing as misandry? That's just a tool used by men to further oppress women and discredit feminist arguments.

Not an abuser. A corrector. How else are we going to learn?

Of course its wrong but society is too messed up to fix it.

One that gets me is a relatively new, when a woman is a stay at home mom people give her respect like its the hardest job ever which don't get me wrong it can be a difficult job and an important one since you're in charge of the life and happiness of a helpless human. But If a guy is a stay at home dad he's automatically looked down on as a lazy f**k. If anything a stay at home dad has it harder since women are far more naturally equipped to deal with children, that's not sexism its an evolutionary fact.

Men are generic, women are special.

A special kind of Double Standard that completely screws with logic. A man performing any act that seems evil and unfair in, like say, looking at another woman. Meanwhile, a female character can perpetuate the exact same actions but not receive any sort of penalty or negative dividends for it. As such, the end result of this is usually both that male sexuality (and the expressions thereof) are presented as inherently 'wrong', 'dirty' and 'ugly', and that any problems that arise are automatically the man's fault.

This also apply to the majority, just change men for majority and women to minority and you are ready to go.

Judge other society with our society morals, values and point of views, but not judge your society in the same way.

Exactly.

There is no such thing as a double standard being okay -- all the above posts are indicative of that.
