    Definitely not the worst, but one that is super annoying. People of my generation (millennials) being called lazy and financially irresponsible when it is extremely difficult to find jobs (even after college) in an economic environment created by the financial irresponsibility of the generations above us.

    I wouldn't call that a double standard; I'd call that ignorant people being judgmental and ignoring the facts.

    Here's my worst double standard: Politicians making it very difficult for women to get abortions, yet doing NOTHING to help young women avoid becoming pregnant (i.e., sex education in schools and access to birth control) and NOTHING to help women keep and raise their babies once they are born. And doing it all in the name of "women's health."

    It's okay for a woman to hit a man but it's like a social sin for a man to hit a woman.

    Gays who trash other gays who do something that they would never do but it has no effect or bearing on them. For example, getting pissed on (golden showers) would be a turn off for me, but if two guys want to do that it, it has nothing to do with me or anyone else so I don't see why people feel the need to get upset about it.

    And they don't seem to realize that it's no different than straight people getting upset about two guys having sex together.

    If someone likes to do something that turns you off but doesn't affect you or anyone else, keep your mouth shut.

    Women who complain about:
    1) Less pay for the same job
    2) Celebrate in song "I slashed the sides of all four tires, carved my name into his leather seats.." and "Earl had to die" and laugh online about an alleged cheating guy getting his stuff slashed, thrown into the yard in the rain and his car vandalized, while if a man did that to a woman's stuff he'd be in jail before he finished painting 'cheater' on her house
    3) Higher life insurance premiums for men
    and the biggest one
    4) Men have to register for the Selective Service by age 18 or face possible jail, fines, penalties and cannot ever hold a federal job, while females all say they want to be treated the same in the military, yet don't have the same requirement

    all the while women piss & moan about how unequal they are!

    Maybe not the worst, but certainly the latest double standard:

    http://washington.cbslocal.com/2014/03/07/obama-misspells-respect-while-praising-franklin-before-white-house-concert/


    When Dan Quayle misspelled a word, the news media went nuts for months. They succeeded in humiliating him and making the whole world think he was retarded. When Obama misspells a word, lyrics from a song everyone knows, hardly a peep can be heard about it. There's a double standard for ya.

    Yeah, but to be fair, Quayle was a complete and widely known Palin-type. The president is kind of smart.

    Thank you.
    Around 2002, you can't criticize the President of the USA or you're anti-American.
    After 2008, the President is a secret Muslim terrorist who wasn't born in the USA and let's tell everyone we know how whatever he's doing is wrong for the USA even at the times when we (secretly) want the same thing.

    People in positions of authority within a company who do things they would criticise the people beneath them for. It's the worst because of how common it is.

    lol at you if you truly think women are not in clear disadvantage. They do earn less and still have to take care of all the cleaning in their homes. I dont know in military but in any other job they do fuck them up (my sister complains but shes right to do so).

    bonaparts01 saidAnother one is if a guy gets sexually abused by a woman it's no where near as bad in the eyes of society as other way around

    I was going to post something similar. In every one of my jobs, the women can be rude as hell to the men but if the men are rude to the women... holy moly... it becomes a human resources issue.

    There has been no evidence of this in decades.

    Yeah man, he totally lost that one. Oh wait, it's still ongoing and none of us knows what's happening internally or how it will resolve. Oops. By speaking hyperbolically and prematurely I look kinda silly.

    Well, he could do like Bush did and ignore the international community. icon_sad.gif
