Top 10 Worst Double StandardsFor those who don't know, a double standard is a rule or principle that is unfairly applied in different ways to different people or groups. Some of them are so stupid and hypocritical that it's amazing how they're accepted by society. None of these are in any particular order. If you have one that bothers you the most then feel free to add it.
The Top Ten
I'm a non-white, and I made an entire list dedicated to this. - yungstirjoey666
I found a video of some Japanese women saying they are glad they made the Ghost in the Shell characters white. Joan of Arc as a black woman is just ridiculous. - 445956
I am now starting to think a black person will play live-action Kim Possible. - 445956
2014 Annie ring a bell?
If you truly hit someone, you deserve to get hit back, I don't care who you are - RustyNail
I don't think casual violence should be accepted unless it is truly deserved at all, - Phillip873
Since when is people hurting each other funny?
lol chill - judo8alex
I'm just saying that women have suffered years of mistreatment and have not been treated like they should be, so one little hit is really nothing, and saying this is "beyond sexist" is a immense exaggeration, there is way more sexism towards women than men. - judo8alex
And let's not forget when a black person calls another black person the n word when they're referring to a friend. Oh, and black rappers using the n word in some of their songs. I just don't get it. Why would Americans of African descent use a word that insults their own race as a way of everyday conversation? I understand it's free expression, but the ways it's used by most African Americans is kind of vulgar, if you ask me. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Racial slurs in general are not okay! - Phillip873
I'm not saying that we should murder, I'm saying that we need to kill in self-defense, especially if we were in a situation where there's people trying to kill us.
The different is, if you a murder a random person, that person did nothing to you and did nothing to deserve being killed. but if you murder someone in a war, that people signed up for the army knowing they could be killed. - RecklessGreed
Come on! Not all guys are perverted pigs who prey on a woman's body. Have a little more faith in us why don't ya?
It depends if the crash was on purpose or accident - RustyNail
Considering the Muslim population in the US is only ONE percent, once investigators get to the bottom of it, that's pretty much always the reason. Otherwise, when you are talking the other 325 million possible people, the number of reasons a car jumps the sidewalk are innumerable. FYI, the number one reason is heart attacks/strokes. Quite often the driver is dead behind the wheel.
I feel really bad for Muslims since they get an awful reputation for being bloodthirsty terrorists (and this is especially bad for my best friend on this site who is also a Muslim).
Babies need to feed on the mother's milk because milk contains a lot of nutrients that are essential for growing babies and children. If you don't like seeing a woman trying to feed her child them simply walk away. It's not like she's gonna breastfeed her baby for the next 24 hours while she's out in public.
Nature. Our women have breasts to feed 'our' babies: LET THEM BE FED!
It's not right to make fun of anyone. Didn't you learn that in first grade?
No men don't get praised for sleeping with other women. And people who shame women for this are other women. - Aguythatpeopleignores
Maybe it's just me, but wouldn't that technically make the man sexist in a way? Just saying.
This is totally true, I've heard many stories of this - Phillip873
This actually began to reverse about 25 years ago, and for at least the past decade it is exactly revered. Atheists are allowed to attack and ridicule religious people at will in virtually every setting, and they actively do so without fear of any kind of reprisal.
Good point. People are free to believe in whatever they must. No one should force their own beliefs onto anyone and instead share them. And if they don't agree then it really shouldn't be a big deal.
I don't hate religious people at all but society needs to know that we atheists are in no way evil or corrupt. We do care about living moral lives. We just don't like how people have used to religion to do bad things.
I really despise this idea, it's incredibly bigoted! - Phillip873
This one is not good. Halsey is my favorite singer, but it is not right that she copied Lana Del Rey.
What's so bad about caring about equality, healthcare, care for the poor, etc? What's so bad about progressing society? - yungstirjoey666
No, if you're a conservative, you get called a racist and a sexist.
Pure hypocrisy at its finest. More often that not, I'm more likely to stumble upon a place where you're called out for being a liberal and generalized as an SJW. Sure, there's some places where you're called out for being a conservative and generalized as a redneck who doesn't believe in global warming, but social media seems to have more people mocking liberals than conservatives. A few examples include YouTube, Twitter, and... TheTopTens too, actually. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Yeah. From a general perspective, it's either conservatives ganging up on liberals or the other way around with liberals rallying against conservatives. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Not all Liberals are LSJW's and not all Conservatives are CSJW's - 445956
This one I don't get because those aged 18 are still not legal enough to get into pubs or clubs because of them containing alcohol.
This sin't a double standard. It's the law...
It may be, but keep in mind that this item is saying that even at 18 you're still not fully legal enough to do other particular things like enter a pub or a club for example (mainly because those types of places serve alcohol in which you still can't consume at 18 or even 20).
But why would you be wearing that shirt if you aren’t?
Am I the only one who thinks 20 is still a bad age to date because you're still not legal enough at that age? Just saying.
I honestly never got why dating someone as young as 18 is considered gross. They're legally adults so it's not like much physical harm is being caused. I'm JUST saying.
I don't see the logic in this one because even 20-year-olds still aren't legal enough to do other certain things either. Why would you wanna date someone who's not legal enough?
This double standard is so hypocritical. I remember Scott Disick dating a 19-year-old in his 30s and everyone flipped their lid, but Camila Cabello dated a 30-something-year-old guy when she was 20 and nobody bated an eyelash. Even at 20 you're still not legal enough to do to her things. Just let that sink in.
Nobody posts on facebook anymore - judo8alex
Nobody goes to Facebook any more, its too crowded.
Oh the irony...
Nobody thinks either... do they?
�" what - EliHbk
Now, listen, I'm not into it (keep me away from it kthx), but some people are, so...
Not exactly a double standard - mattstat716
I'm Christian and I don't think this.. - EliHbk
Only Muslims think this way.
If you are a good man...if you’re good, then you aren’t bad!
The internet in a nutshell - yungstirjoey666
This double standard is AWFUL. This is why feminism and equal rights are important.
