These Shocking Pictures Show The Sad Truth About Society's Double Standards
When man began his short journey on this tiny blue planet he felt as though something was missing. A feeling of camaraderie, companionship, unity, whatever name you want to give it, it would not change what all humans needed. A place where they would all belong and feel like they were wanted. This gathering of people eventually grew to have rules and traditions and later into laws and rights. The need for people to be with other people and feel like they belonged somewhere is what gave birth to society as we know it.
Over the centuries society changed with man. It evolved, refined, degenerated and finally became what it is today. Society has had its ups and downs over the years, but one of the worst things that has festered in society over the years is the application of a double standard. A double standard is when a different set of rules is applied to different people in similar situations.
This story takes a look at many such examples of double standards, instead of taking a serious approach we have tried going the other way to show you just how funny and ridiculous these can be. Go to the next page to see more of these funny examples. Share this story to help people understand just how crazy their double standards can get.
#9 Texting :)
While the image shows us a guys reaction to the same message sent by a girl and a guy, what it is trying to say is a lot deeper. Society has made it so that a guy cannot be sensitive and thoughtful without his sexuality coming into question. This can be attributed to the deep seated rules throughout society of men being the hunters and the heads of the family.
While such thinking might have been appropriate for the caveman and most of the animal kingdom with 'Alpha Male' animals, it feels out of place in modern society. Like many of society's answers to its problems this too can be explained by - 'that's just how it is'. That may be how it was in the past. But it can surely change in the future.
#8 Double Standards In War
Double standards are helped along the way by the media and people who can be easily influenced. Double standards used on a national scale can affect each and every person in that country. Double standards are based on prejudice and making an opinion on a certain topic without first getting to know the entire issue.
Making assumptions based on a half-truth often leads to misunderstandings and complications. War is not something which should be waged without any reason. Real and innocent people get caught up and killed just because of a flawed perception.
#7 The Police
What do we do when the people who preserve the peace and order ignore their own rules? We laugh at the joke and we move on. Move on the next page to see other examples of double standards.
#6 Body Acceptance Needs To Cut Both Ways
Why the differentiation? Body acceptance should be adopted by both sexes for both sexes. Men have feelings as well. Even though people consider it inappropriate for them to accept it.
#5 The Same
It's always the same argument. People always insist that they are merely doing what is right and what should have been done. Is oppressing freedom right? Gay marriage is still illegal all over the world. Just how much time will it take for humans to accept change and adopt peace? Maybe forever.
Religion needs faith not proof. You follow a different religion? Yours must be wrong then. How can we all have a different god if there was only one creator? How can you call us different when we're all so similar?
#3 A Group Of...
Where is the line? Who decides just what the difference is between creepy and sweet? Who gave that person the right? Tagging or defining things is where we go wrong. Just try to look at life from that persons perspective to see a whole new world.
#2 What Can We Do?
At the end of the day it doesn't matter what you say or do. Society has become so corrupted that both sides of the coin are just as bad. The answer is not as simple as blaming a group of people for the mistakes of society. It is us, you and me, who need to be the change we wish to see.
#1 Something Horribly Wrong
Humor and cartoons allow us to express our concerns and look at all our problems while taking a step back away from them. There is so much that is wrong with this world, so much injustice that we all turn a blind eye towards. Only by accepting that we as a society have these faults in us can we move forward. Express yourself, stand up for what you believe in, live a little. Share this article if it see just how these double standards affect us.
