In certain quarters of society, the idea that women have become “too easy” is a common complaint. This is generally a conservative position which has the “good old days” as its point of comparison, where women were expected to be modest and chaste until marriage. This traditional model had its most recent heyday in the s, where traditional family values that centered the importance of marriage and “saving yourself for one person” were at their apex. After the sexual revolution of the s, which came about due to changing social attitudes and technological advances like the invention of the oral contraceptive pill, attitudes towards pre-marital sex became looser. The rise of various feminist movements also encouraged women to break free of old social norms throughout the s, 80s and 90s — right up until today. So what’s the upshot of these decades of social change? Basically, women these days are, generally speaking, more likely to openly engage in casual sex than they used to be. But the idea that this makes them “easy” — let alone “too easy” — deserves closer examination. Here are 8 reasons the idea that women have become too easy is wrongheaded, and some discussion of why the rise of more relaxed attitudes about casual sex is actually a good thing for both men and women:

The premise of the post was to simply say we should not judge a woman on her past. Who she was then is not necessarily who she is now. There were many those that greatly appreciated the article but there were also many who blasted it.

I am talking to men of all ages, education levels and walks of life who have been raised outside of Iran and when you get to the heart of it, in marriage with Irooni they are openly or subconsciously searching for their Virgin Mary! You see, I am the traditional one who believes a good man can mold a woman to be his perfect mate.

9 Toxic Signs Of Double Standards In Relationships You Should Never Tolerate
Men and women in the room discussed many topics, including cheating and domestic abuse, but the conversation about double standards in relationships sparked much discussion. Double standards, the rules and expectations that each gender expects their opposite to act, are killing relationships and continue to further divide men and women in our society. These standards can come in all shapes and sizes.
It can be as minor as you expecting your partner to always answer the phone when you call but you refusing to do the same behavior. Bigger double standards, that can transcend relationships, include the standard that men are not as shamed as women are for having many sexual partners and if a man has had many sexual partners, he expects his women not to.

At the time that Darwin’s On the Origin of Species was published, the earth was “scientifically” determined to be million years old. By , it was found to be 1. In , science firmly established that the earth was 3. Finally in , it was discovered that the earth is “really” 4. In these early studies the order of sedimentary rocks and structures were used to date geologic time periods and events in a relative way. At first, the use of “key” diagnostic fossils was used to compare different areas of the geologic column.
Although there were attempts to make relative age estimates, no direct dating method was available until the twentieth century. However, before this time some very popular indirect methods were available. For example, Lord Kelvin had estimated the ages of both the Earth and the Sun based on cooling rates. The answer of 25 million years deduced by Kelvin was not received favorably by geologists. Both the physical geologists and paleontologists could point to evidence that much more time was needed to produce what they saw in the stratigraphic and fossil records.
As one answer to his critics, Kelvin produced a completely independent estimate — this time for the age of the Sun. His result was in close agreement with his estimate of the age of the earth. The solar estimate was based on the idea that the energy supply for the solar radioactive flux is gravitational contraction.
Men are expected to treat women like helpless, delicate flowers one day and then the next, we are supposed to forget that they were helpless and see them as competent enough to make half of the decisions in relationships or the workplace. We are directed to believe women capable of making good decisions. If we note the hypocrisy, we are called misogynists. These are the same independent women who are often overly paranoid of men but the second they get a flat tire at the side of the road or their car gets stuck in the snow, they can magically trust any unrelated man in the city to come along and change her tire for her or push her out of the snow.
Guys kill me about their double standards when it comes to dating. One of the common games guys play besides getting being available by phone before sex and unavailable after they get it is not letting a guy know he’s not interested by calling or texting.

If you showed them a PSA about how smoking is addictive and kills people, they’d just nod their heads and completely agree, as long as “people” doesn’t include them.
Another experiment tried to individually educate people on their risks from stroke, cancer, heart attack and car crashes, but only the stroke and cancer messages stuck. Cancer and stroke are things people tend to see as mysterious afflictions from God or fate, while heart attacks and car crashes are “controllable” things, and no matter what statistics you quote, people are convinced they’ve got it handled — or maybe they subconsciously don’t want to change their lifestyles.

Are You Called ‘Whipped’ or Committed? Our Sexist Double Standards For Dating
A controversial topic between the sexes entails the double standard that exists between both sexes. Men feel that there exists a great injustice or some kind of feminist conspiracy that allows women to get away with everything that men can’t. If there is one thing men keep telling me about women, it’s that they are unfair.
If men approach women it means they want to sleep with them; on the other hand, when women flirt with men all night at clubs, it means nothing. I decided to sit down with some men and discuss what they think are the most blatant, annoying, frustrating — and some said evil — double standards that exist between men and women.
underlying dating double standards bestows greater agency and status on men than on women (e.g., man provides for woman; woman takes man’s last name). Hence, women may be more likely than men to challenge traditional gender roles that privilege men relative to women. Indeed, prior studies.
The 28 year-old Dylan says she was sexually assaulted by her stepfather almost twenty years ago when she was 7 years old. The comparison of the manner in which the similar stories of Michael Jackson and Woody Allen were handled by the media will be all the more easier as the seven-year-old Dylan accused her stepfather of abuse right at the time when Jordan Chandler accused Michael Jackson of the same. However this is where the similarity between the two cases ends as all the rest was completely different.
Of course her article about Woody Allen was a far cry from her series about Michael Jackson which grew more biased and nastier with each new consecutive piece. The intensity of this relationship was once observed by a child psychologist, Dr. Quote from the Vanity Fair: In more than two dozen interviews conducted for this article, most of them with individuals who are on intimate terms with the Mia Farrow household, Allen was described over and over as being completely obsessed with the bright little blonde girl.

Dating with a double standard
Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian.
Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date. Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.
If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart.

She will become angry with me for doing exactly the same thing that she does, and then I get angry because I feel like I I have been treated “unfairly. My wife often does not respond to me when she is playing a game or reading something on her iPhone. I have told her how I feel when she does that, to no avail. So I have learned not to take it personally. The other night I was in bed playing a game on MY iPhone and she cuddled up to me. I continued playing the game. And at the time I was aware that I was doing for the first time exactly what she does to me all the time.
The next day, I pointed out to her that she got furious at me for doing something she frequently does with me. She would not agree that it was the same situation. Then, a couple of days later, I cuddled up to her in bed while she was reading something on her iPhone. I knew she would ignore me, and that was fine.
