Double Standards


I got this picture off of a blog I came across (Craziness You Say? Reality Hurts, Deal With It!). This reminds me of a past occurrence involving Jennifer... back in high school when Jennifer was competing in a debate tournament, an arrogant judge said something to her very similar to what this picture depicts. He told her that when a man in forceful in debate, people call him powerful... when a woman (he now directing this to her) is forceful in debate, people call her a bitch.

It's been years since this occurred, and it didn't even happen to me... but it still upsets me quite a bit! I know all to well that life's not fair, but I just hate double-standards and hypocrisy! And I especially hate the fact that some pompous ass (who's not me) called my sister a bitch!

That picture just shows one half of the double standard, take devorce for example the woman gets everything and the guy gets the debt. I have never heard of a guy getting rich off a devorce.

Well, it's usually the guy who cheats on his wife!! Plus, the man is also not usually the one who ends up with the kids

It's thinking like this "judges" that hold this country back. I don't care if someone thinks I am a bitch. If they think that because I am voicing my opinion then they are obviously an idiot.
Also, I actually know a man that got rich off a divorce. They were only married one year.

So we have one man who got rich, good for him. Even if the woman gets the kids she gets child support the house and half of the guys net wealth, this is bullshit.

Josh-boy, the reason why woman typically appear to get half, is because traditoinally men held most of the assets in the marriage. For example, when Jennifer becomes rich, I'm going to sit on my ass eating Wonka cakes all day. But, i can claim I supported her before she got rich, so I would get half.

My other point is that you're an asshole.
