    Default Double standards

    A high school student who has already slept with 10 people enters a new school. What people will say about this person's sexual experiences depends on one factor: gender.
    If this person is a male, he will be admired by his fellow males, and perhaps even desired by females. Guys will respect him and girls will be impressed by his experience. He is generally referred to as "the player."
    However, if this person is a girl she will most likely be subjected to ridicule and disrespect by her peers. Males will try to use her, hoping that they can get her into bed, and females will despise her out of disgust, or in some cases, jealousy. She is generally referred to as "the (insert name here)."

    Thoughts?

    Feh. If you ask me, it's just the way our minds are wired as mammals. A successful male is one that can spread it's genes to as many mates as possible; a successful female is one that can mix genes with the strongest or smartest male, hence the female must be more selective with her mate.

    Of course, the introduction of contraceptives and the relatively new concept of gender-equality have made this manner of thinking obsolete. But that doesn't mean the way we think will change overnight, because people (especially young people) are still basically animals.

    Not necessarily, I'd think of both of them as... well, I wouldn't think too highly of them if someone told me about it. Then again it's up to them as to what they do with their lives and it's not much of my business.

    To me sex is nt a game. Hence I don't care how many females you slept with, it just means you can't hold fast in the battlefield of love. Not to say that love is a moral constant, seeing as its very components fashion a conundrum, I at least have more respect for guys who don't USE females for sex.

    Same with females too. I know how it feels to desire that intimacy, but why should you sacrifice the happiness of a female who might have pure feelings for you just to put another notch on your bed post?

    Buuuut, we are just animals, and opinions are just opinions. I just happen to believe in a sacridy that this up and coming Brave New World is dusting off... Commitment and loyalty.


    Perhaps the world was never meant to make perfect sense.

    that's an absurd statement.

    I do agree sex (as it is portayed in the media, TV etc, is overrated, though.)

    The double standards exist all over, and not just for women.

    That standard usually only applies to amongst men. If a guy were to say "You know I've had sex with alotta women in my time" she probably won't call him a "rake, womanizer, etc. (from Wikipedia) but she will look at him as untrustworthy.

    Plus, it's not quantity it's quality. I could have had sex with alot of unpleasant women and be called a player, but I rather be with three or four attractive women. That's just me.

    -Brief sigh-

    Hypothetically speaking; if such a thing is becoming the standard in our world, or at least America, then it would appear as though our society has taken yet another significant step back from the days when men were respected and honored for their respect of women rather than how many they've managed to get into bed.

    I ask you, what respect is there to be found in a man who has x number of women under his proverbial belt? I don't know how this misconception got started, but it's exactly because of ill-conceived trains of thought like this and young boys can get the wrong idea and get into a whole mess of trouble.

    I do believe the good Immanuel Kant would take it as a personal blow to his idealism of the powers of reason and logic inherent in humans if he were to see how so many young people succumb to the instincts of animals, as you so stated, and lined themselves up on the proverbial chopping block later on in life. What I mean by that is that the ill-conceived mindset of sleeping with more women gets you more women hardly works as well in the real world as it does in Middle School/High School where girls' minds are still developing and naive about such things.

    I would like to believe that we are not just animals. Graced with the powers of reasoning and logic, I do think it is an imperative that humans hold themselves to a higher standard.

    As disappointing as this world can be sometimes however, there are still the far and few between that hold the concepts of honor, loyalty, and commitment strongly in their hearts. The very fact that we can talk about such things, here and now, is proof that there is still hope.

    My thanks to Xey Oiz for the awesome new set.

    I still would view the boy as someone who would never take a relationship seriously and only try to get me into bed. And I would still view it as disgusting.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    The only part of (western) history that sounds even vaguely like that is the Victorian era, and even then only if you ignore that there was absolutely no respect for women they were seen as baby-making pets to be indulged.

    The only reason I bring this up is because I have a cousin who made a ...few mistakes and I hate seeing her be taunted by her peers whenever I drop her off at school. She feels the need to validate her existence with physical intimacy and all that junk. I don't really understand all that psycho babble her shrink spews out.

    I really could care less about how many people somebody probably slept with, it's their business and should stay their business. Who knows what could be festering around their genitalia...
    I now know what hell sounds like; I recommend a tactical nuclear strike on my position. Tell my family I love them.
