wait...having sex is "good" but it can also be bad and somthing to be ridiculed for and can get you lebelled a slut? YOUR the slut not him?.

...waaaaaahhh?
Agreed, and on this note why is it "ok" for women to use sex as a weapon, but if men due it, then it's an immediate insult to the women?

as for real life...is it wrong for a woman to enjoy sex?
Not at all, I'm not going to stay in a relationship if it seems like sex is some kind of (and there is no way I can think to say this, that won't leave me open to ridicule, but what ever) labor that the woman is working her way through.

I have a couple that annoy me.

1. The console war debate. The Wii is the overall winner of this console generation, but it somehow does not count because it is an hyperactive baby toy. When that is pointed out for the Kinect, it is called an innovative device that brings unrivaled amounts of interactivity to game play. They both provide the similar experiences, but since one is "core" and the other is "casual" the core one gets a pass.

Freeberg and Seltzer makes a career out of taking moments and scenes from other movies and they are called hacks. Tarantino does it and he is called a genius.

People who think pop culture from back in the day is automatically better. These people annoy me because they are making a one sided comparison to what they remember back then to everything made within the last 3 years. When you do that, it gives you a false sense of history. I prefer what I like to be good, or at least good to me. I don't care what era its from as long as I like it.

When people talk down about 'gamers' being lowlife non-contributing scum, and then sink another hour into Angry Birds or some completely vapid Facebook game. Bonus points if they look at you like you slapped them when you point out that playing those games makes them, dun dun dun, a gamer.

Anywho:

Why is it that Mac hyper-enthusiasts are bashed for being exclusive Mac snobs, but the hate isn't there for snobby Linux users?

Because the Linux fanbase is smaller, and actually earned their snobbery by managing to use Linux effectively.


Apple fans are exceptionally stupid when it comes to their elitism. Apple products are fairly nicely designed, but that's about it. There's no "elite" to justify their elitism.

Is this really about double standards, or just you overreacting to pony haters? Again.
Overreacting. That's just people having different opinions about different things.

Well comparing MLP to adventure time isn't fair really.

*toss's incendary forum bomb and runs*
Adventure time has more developed characters and is far better written.

Jokes aside

Double standards is a bloody dangerous thing to discuss, but a classic example.

Why do men always leave the toilet seat up why can't they put it down!.

Why do women always leave the toilet seat down why can't they put it up!.

The best thing I've heard to describe this was "A key that opens many locks is a good key, a lock that is opened by many keys is a shitty lock"

There's also "To be a stud, you have to be witty, charming, well-dressed, have nice shoes and a fake job. To be a slut, you just have to be there". Really, I think society's whole view on sex is pretty off, but that's just me.

Doble standard: Atractive females can't rape men.
Yup, I'm guilty of this one too. I think we had a case with a hot nanny and a 14 year old we discussed here at The Escapist last year...

I don't understand the video tag here. Why couldn't this have a normal forum interface?
You know, with pretty buttons that trigger forum code inserts...
The tag here is:

I wish it was the other way too, but not beyond that its fine.

Gender double standards are always stupid.For example..

Guys hire stripper - Sleazy and demeaning to women
Girls hire stripper - A bit of harmless fun

Guy hits girl - He's a bastard
Girl hits guy - He deserved it for being a bastard

Guy sleeps with underage girl - He's an evil Peado who should be locked up/castrated/killed
Girl sleeps with underage guy -

So, we've all seen them and we've all HATED them. Double standards, the "I am fine with someone doing something, but I don't want another person to do the same thing" sort of logic. The ones that basically just piss you off at the stupidity of them, since well they are almost always just hypocrites and people who want to defend what them and them alone like.

Here's a controversial one to kick off the thread. How if an Adventure Time/Regular Show fan goes on a thread or post about ponies and say there show is better, nobody complains. Yet when a brony goes on an Adventure Time/Regular Show thread or post and says that they prefer MLP, then BAM they're a ****** brony shoving their shit down people's faces. It's also fine for people to come onto pony threads and posts, show the rule 34/my little holocaust pictures and denounce all bronies as pathetic lifeforms who should all die. When nobody ever goes on Adventure Time/Regular Show threads and post their rule 34/weird shit side and denounce all their fans as pathetic lifeforms who should die. This just pisses me off since well, the only reason I can think it happens is because they don't like seeing "girly" ponies. Also, I'll believe the argument that bronies shove MLP down people's faces WHEN people stop going onto purely pony related threads and posting hate, shoving it down the brony's faces. But alas, it's much easier to hate than to like something, that's what life is like something and you can't change that.
because everyone knows they are evil
Not only ponies are evil though... (Just having a bit of fun, I'm not taking this seriously)

Main one i can think of is sentencing for drug related offences. Ordinary Joe from round the corner gets caught with a bag of cocaine in his bag - 5 years in jail. Celebrity Carl gets caught for the umpteenth time after passing out behind the wheel, ploughing into a wall and falling out the door with enough coke on his face he looks like he's been flour bombed - 6 months, out in 14 days.

Celebrities get away with blue murder when it comes to drugs. Was there not a celebrity that served less than 48hrs of their sentence before release? When famous people are not punished to the same degree as ordinary people it sends a message that drug use isn't that bad, and that if you're famous you get treated differently, that needs to change. Celebrities should receive the same length of time anyone else would, if not more to send the message that drug use will land you in jail for a long time

Wait a sec, gonna do a quick google search. Funny how much creepy fanart gets done of the most innocent of things...



Also, to round it out, here's a creepy MLP drawing.
The art's very good imo, still horrifying though.

really want you to see how guys can see it as being shameful. All guys don't think this way(myself included) but some do. Most of the time in porno, women are being degraded. Paying them to have sex on screen, but it is not always just that. After all there are pornos where the guy tries to to see how far he can shove his member down her throat as she gags for air. Really gross ones where all the men beat off into a cup, then the women drinks about a pint of semen. Don't think it's wrong for a women to enjoy sex, but the simple act of penetration is where guys start judging them. Of course it's not hard to see why. Some woman has had sex in every hole and some guy finds out about it, he tends to put her on a lower standard if he is not dating her.
but this has nothing to do with porn..I'm talking about real life...they are very different

yeah the natural reaction to somone who sleeps around and apears to have little self worth is negatve <-and mabye theres a correlation there (just going by anecdotal evidence)

but then people can be into all kinds of things, if they want to indulge whatever then thats their thing..regardless of gender
Really isn't that different. Alot of men have shaped their opinions of women through porno. Make it a point to tell me that we don't get influenced by what we see because it is not real life. Pretty much everyone on the planet has been influenced by some other means that may not ring true in the world around them.
.....I...I don't know what to say to somebody that takes their social ques from porno.
Really don't know what to say to someone who thinks I was talking about myself. After all, read what I wrote dumbass. Many people on this site keep doing this, I didn't say I felt that way know did I smart guy?
Then who are your referring to? Seriously, who are you referring to? Do you have friends that do this?
Porn and the affect it has on people can really be quite disturbing and may become a huge problem in the future.
This video goes over the effects very well:

On topic: It annoys me when, in a videogame, after you're done genocideing the villains guards you get a moral choice about killing the main villain themselves.

Advance Wars Duel Strike must be the all time worst case of this, but I'm sure there are plenty of others.
