It's okay for women to be very insecure, but not guys.

Why is it during 3-somes with a man and 2 women, its called just that...'a 3-some'...but when its a woman and 2 men, its called a GANG BANG or stated how a 'train' was ran on the female?

I have never been called a ho..and I've had more sex partners then most men I've been with..
As for 3sums..no..im not willing to share whom Im with during sex.. not with anyone..only I'm allowed to please him in bed..

Men are expected to like women based on sexual features like breast size and butt bubblyness, but when women like men based on muscular bodies or penis size, it is deemed shallow or slutty.

Women want to be financially equal to men, but don't want to be financially equal when with a man.

It's because you ARE infact, "Dating"

I have observed, when women do it... it's not 'Yea, we are dating' the Casual way men view it as...

And that's where it goes sideways.
Yes, sideways as in, "I'm gonna agree with this woman that we're only friends, not romantically involved, spending some time together, but behind her back I'm gonna tell every male over 18 in our area that she and I "have something going on" This will chase off any other males interested in her and I'm in the clear to convince her I should be her boyfriend".

Sideways as in, "The woman found out about this BS manipulative game and told him to never call her again."

Well, as long as men have an infinite number of sperm and women have a finite number of eggs, there will be double standards, so you might as well get used to it.

My Favorites:

Man cheats: "He's a low down, dirty dog!"
Woman cheats: "Well, I heard they were having problems."

Men have to register for Selective Service.
Women do not.

Woman is a virgin, she's of high value

Man is a virgin, he's a loser and no woman wants him

It is totally fine for a woman to dump a guy for having a small penis.

It is totally wrong for a guy to dump a girl for having a big lose vagina, flat chested, cellulite on her butt, etc.

Finding one's partner to be sexually attractive and satisfactory in bed goes without saying.

What men find sexually attractive (good looks) is universally accepted however what women find attractive (success and confidence) is often subject to suspicion.

Directed towards the OP..

I think double standards do exist..it is what it is..but is it universal? No, I think alot of individuals break this mold all the time and hopefully will conitue to do so..

The examples you brought up? Very valid and so true and tragic.
A man can continue to roam this free world and be a 50 year old bachelor and it is seen as normal..I cannot count how many times a man will come onto me and be in his late 40's or early 50's and have no children let alone wife and state they have not found the right one and somehow this should be seen as normal?

Yet a woman in the same age group can be held to same caliber and instead she is seen as an old maid, totally worthless, a difficult women or barren?wow?

The same goes for sex...the more women a man gets means he is a sexual man and has not found the right one to tame him?
Women like this fill the career as an escort or hooker..Instead of a woman whom loves sex much like their counterpart and have not found a man she truly feels she can settle down with?

As far as other double standards...There are jobs made for men and not for women and if there are sexual harrassment laws put in place to protect women this means women are asking for too much?
NO...as a daughter of a father whom is a viet vet and no a capt for the dept of corrections..my father states honestly "There are women better suited to be correctional officers because they can exert judgement that is not testosterone driven..better to see a situation and behave accordingly to the law yet need extra protection due to their size...sexist? No honest, he can see the world for what it is and gives credit where credit is due..

Not sure if it was mentioned yet, but one double standard I've noticed is that when a female farts, everyone's all, "GROSS! YUCK! EWW!", but if a man farts, it's funny.
