My girl and I had a massive argument about this the other day because she reckons that us guys have it easy and that society tends to overlook most of our shortcomings and the multiple double standards, especially when it comes to dating and stuff

As much as I hate to admit it, it's true. Noticed how no guy wants to wife a girl that's been with everybody? But us guys are allowed to play the field until we decide to do the right thing

Oh yeah - my favourite: A girl that's been with a lot of guys is a slut BUT a guy that's been with a lot of girls is a stud. Imagine that

We can't deny that's changing though. Women are becoming more liberated and there's even been a shift in the traditional gender roles. No longer is it the case that the man has to be the breadwinner and the woman the homemaker. All of this double standards nonsense will come to pass

Yes, there is intention of change, but it is glacial, and there will always be some kind of differentiation when talking about gender roles due to socialisation. Note that I say"gender", as it does influence both sexes in everyday life due to how we were raised as kids.

There is positive change in terms of regulation and law, yet, socialisation is what is preventing the stereotypical gender roles to evolve. So yes, by law a woman can work and be the breadwinner of the family, yet socialisation still tells us that the man needs to take care of the family. So even if a man chooses to stay at home or be unemployed, it will have a negative impact on his masculinity and image as a member of society. Just as a woman's image willbe scrutinised if she decides to work instead of stay home with her children.

This is just one example of countless of others.

The stereotypical roles of gender is still so evident in everything that we see and do on a daily basis due to socialisation. Which is why any hopes for change is but a distant dream, until our society starts accepting and practicing gender neutral roles.

There is definitely a double standard, and a lot of us do certain things accordingly without even thinking about it. Our behaviour and perception of the gender and the separate roles and rules of the sexes is completely distorted. Yet we have become so accustomed to this way of thinking through socialisation that it is just the norm, and is just accepted to be how things are.

A twofold standard is characterized as"a decide or rule that is unreasonably connected in various approaches to various individuals or gatherings". In today's general public, individuals are frequently contending about the twofold gauges that both men and ladies confront regularly.
