A double standard is the application of different sets of principles for situations that are, in principle, the same. It is often used to describe treatment whereby one group is given more latitude than another.

A double-standard arises when two or more people, groups, organizations, circumstances, or events are treated differently even though they should be treated the same way. Margaret Eichler, author of The Double Standard: A Feminist Critique of Feminist Social Science, explains that a double standard “implies that two things which are the same are measured by different standards”.

1. If a man and a woman are both too drunk to consent but have sex anyway, the man raped the woman.

2. If women do a typically male job it’s admirable, but if men do a typically female job it’s funny.

3. It’s ok to shame a guy for being short, but not ok to shame a woman for being overweight.

4. If my small-chested friend walks around in a tank top, nobody says a word but when I wear one, it’s automatically slutty just cause my breasts are big.

5. Crying men being seen as “weak”.Men think women don’t want to see them cry and feel shame showing emotion.

6. Worse if that’s considered a sign of homosexuality as if that’s a weakness. At one time, homosexuality was considered to be mentally disordered. Since the 1970s, however, major medical associations in the U.S. have labelled homosexuality as a normal counterpart of heterosexuality. Those medical associations have proposed that their homosexuality-is-normal claim is based on “scientific evidence.

7. “Respect your elders”. Meanwhile, grandma’s being an ass to everyone. My stance, on the whole, respecting your elder’s thing is simple and is pretty much what most in this discussion is saying. Respect is always EARNED. The elderly tend to get it due to their time on this earth giving them a fair deal of wisdom, however, there are many exceptions to this. I’ve seen teenagers wiser than 70-year-olds and 60+ year old be like children.

8. Men can’t hit women but it’s not a big deal when they hit men.

9. Parent: “stop wasting time on your phone” followed by the parent watching TV from morning till they go to bed.

10. Hot guy flirts with women, it’s ok. Ugly guy flirts, it’s harassment. I’m not going to sugarcoat things, because that’s a waste of everyone’s time: if you’re attractive, your advances are more likely to be mutual. If you’re unattractive, your advances are less likely to be mutual. Especially in a situation where you’re chatting up with someone new, who knows little about you other than what you look like.

11. People saying you can’t be racist against white people.
Facts are facts. The only way around this is to pretend evolution and biology and psychology don’t exist. Yes, all else equal, women like men who are tall and handsome. BUT. What’s going to be a lot more important than that, in the long run, is his ability to provide. That he has mature and masculine qualities. That he is a loving, considerate, compassionate individual.

12. When people think being rude on the internet for no reason is ok,
but act all outrageous if someone does it to them IRL. Woman and members of ethnic minority groups are disproportionately the targets of social abuse, including death threats and threats of sexual violence. Where these identity markers intersect, the bullying can become particularly intense – as experienced by black female MP Diane Abbott, who alone received nearly half of all the abusive post sent to female MPs during the run-up to the 2017 UK general election. Black and Asian female MPs received on average 35{65d74b771b6ceff07eaefc19ffed56e0ab6ea89ffc0f0b38516c35f1ac414386} more abusive tweets than their white female colleagues even when Abbott was excluded from the total.
