If you are a living human being, that means that you are completely aware that we live in a world full of all kinds of unfair double standards. There are so many double standards in our day to day, that it has just become a part of our lives. But when you stop and think about all the double standards that we face and are expected to live by, we are like "Hold on! What?"
Recently the hashtag #NowThatsADoubleStandard starting floating around the Twittersphere and these tweets really make you stop and think. Let's make 2018 the year of change, and we may as well get a head start. Let's stop ignoring these double standards and let's be loud!
Some of the tweets were old classics like this tweet.
Why is a man praised when he has sex with multiple women, but a woman is seen as a slut when she is promiscuous? Well, ladies. I think this is the year that we own our slutdom and take that word back! If we make slut into a good word, then who cares when we are called one? Cheers to having as much sex as you want in 2018 with as many people as you want. Just don't forget to wrap it up!
Women are put on such a high pedestal that people expect us to always be perfect. And because of this, we also think that we need to be perfect. We think that we need to look perfect and act perfectly as well. And God forbid we have a bad day, then we are crazy or we must be on our period. Men can have a temper, no problem! You want to see how we want to act when we are on our period? I didn't think so. Don't go there! Just don't go anywhere near there.
I am really mad at whoever started this whole "men don't cry" thing. Do you know how cool it is when a man cries? Men that are in touch with their feelings are the sexiest men in the world. We need to accept that men should be able to cry it out when they need to. Go for it, boys!
In our society, women are torn down...a lot. We are consistently working on trying to find our confidence and owning who we are and knowing our worth. When we get there, it can be seen as being bitchy or conceited when really it's just pride for loving who you are.
As a woman, I wish that my greatest worry was having a bad hair day or messing up my makeup. But women have much, much worse things to worry about. We women need to call a friend and tell them who we are going with and the address we're heading to and give them as much info as possible, assuming that we just may die and the cops will need as much information as possible to help find my body. It is so freakin' annoying.
Yes, gray hair on women became a trend recently, but we are talking about gray hairs as a result of aging. Men are called a Silver Fox and women are just seen as old. I want to find a sexy name for women who have gone gray. Gray Gardens? Silver Swan? Yeah, those names just aren't as sexy. If you have any ideas, let me know.
We know better than to fat shame, but do you know how rude it is to tell a skinny girl to eat a burger? First of all, you don't know that woman at all. You don't know if she was born that skinny or if she worked really hard to lose weight. You don't know if she is trying to gain weight and hates the way she looks. You just don't know.
See, there is this thing called science. You may have learned about it in first grade. And there are people called scientists and scientists do studies and there are different kinds of scientists that study different things. Also, polar bears are dying and climate change is real. Any questions?
We need to give the not-so-cute people a chance, too! THEY ARE PEOPLE TOO, DAMMIT. They may be "not-so-cute" to you but that doesn't mean that they can't be awesome and totally win you over with their super fun personality. Unless they are actually being creepy. If so, they need to back the F off.
Women, if we don't want to be catcalled, we must leave the firemen alone. Did you hear me? I said leave the firemen alone! I know that he is so sexy and we think that he is "asking" to be drooled over, but LISTEN TO WHAT I AM SAYING. IT IS NOT OKAY.
Yes, yes I know what you are going to say. What about Superwoman? What about Supergirl? Okay okay, I get it. I hear you. But this girl has a point. Also, witches are boss babes so don't make witch a dirty word.
I think ladies should just let it grow, let it grow, let it grow! Ladies, how much time would you save every day if you didn't have to shave your legs or pits or other areas? I say we get those hours back and let it grow, baby!
Why can't we just get to point where people can marry and love whoever they want? Why can straight people get married three, four, or five times and people don't honor the relationships of same-sex couples? I will never understand it.
We should all have the right to speak our minds but everyone else that doesn't believe in what I believe in is WRONG!!! But I am right so everyone let me speak but don't speak because you are wrong. But I am right. But say what you were going to say. Go ahead.
