Double Standards

Feminism is a hot topic nowadays. and with the topic of feminism comes a lot of discussion of double standards as you cross gender lines, so lets discuss some of them.

1. dating: a huge thing that gets discussed in terms of men and women is actual dates. The common argument is that women want to be treated as equals in a relationship and in general, but still expect men to hold doors for them, buy them drinks, pay for dates, and things of that nature. To be completely honest, I agree with this argument. It is unfair that we are offended by some gender discriminations and expect others. Personally, I like having doors held for me and guys fighting me to get the bill, and if that means I’m expected to put on a pretty skirt and bat my eyelashes, it’s a small price to pay.

2. objectification: Men and women by nature objectify members of the opposite sex. It’s inevitable. However, women take it much more personally than men. We have reached a point in which women get mad when someone says they look nice. It’s ridiculous, While I do understand that women do not want to be viewed as nothing more than sexual objects, we have come a long way from being practically enslaved sexually to our husbands. I do not think it is demeaning, for example, for a guy to say that a girl has a nice ass. To me, there’s little difference between that and saying a girl has pretty eyes or nice hair. It’s a compliment. Just take it as that. ¬†While women are angry about being objectified, we are just as guilty of objectifying men. Why is it a crime against humanity for a guy to say he doesn’t like overweight women, but it’s perfectly okay for women to say that they want a man who is tall, dark, and handsome. I’m not saying it’s right for anyone to objectify the opposite sex by their physical appearance, but we need to acknowledge that it comes from both sides.

3. Being “K”-ed: I write about this one upon request from my guy friends. Girls are notorious for their texting woes. Any time you are short with a girl or, heaven forbid, respond with just a “K,” you better watch your back. I don’t know what it is about this particular letter, but it just strikes a chord with that second x chromosome. And yet, whenever a girl is mad, all they do is respond with short, meaningless (and quite frankly confusing) messages. For some reason, we think no matter what we are in the right and it is the other person’s job to give in and gain our forgiveness. And might I add this causes a particular conflict when you have two girls fighting with each other. We all know we do it, and yet none of us change.

 

Sorry girls, but we kinda suck. Let’s try and get our acts together. And I know this entire post is basically bashing women, but hey, the title of this blog is The Modern Misogynist.

 

And if I’m not mistaken, this will be my last post (crying emoji). It’s been an honor and a privilege to criticize and insult you. Thanks for reading.

  1. This post is overall just awesome. I am so glad that women have been brought into the spotlight when it comes to the equality of both genders. Something had to be said about the misconception that women both deserve equality in general and the courteous of all men in the world. It is a dilemma that just isn’t fair. The Double Standard has to be abolished. We cannot continue with this kind social injustice.

  2. A comment on objectification: I was just saying to my roomie yesterday as we lay in front of old main literally STARING…gawking at the two shirtless guys tossing a football back and forth, that if we were guys looking at girls, we’d get slapped. It made me feel bad that men really aren’t allowed to appreciate a woman’s beauty anymore. Obviously there’s a difference between creepy and appreciative, but girls, maybe when a guy is gawking at you next time, he might just be appreciating your incredible abs and form and throwing arm………or whatever.
