Women: "Why do all men leave the toilet seat up? Its not that hard to flip the seat down."
Me: "soooo...why don't you do it yourself?"
Cause guys splash pee all over it when they go and we don't want to have to touch that shit.
That's why we (I hope it's not just me) use some toilet paper to clean that off the seat. We pee with the seat up though, so that's kind of beside the issue. I put the seat down out of habit, but how exactly is it smart to not look where you're about to sit? That's how woopie coushions became popular.

when I was in highschool (all girls) the world of sex and all that because VERY confusing

being a "slut" is bad....but being "fridged" is also bad?

its ok for guys to sleep around but when girls do its bad?

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?
I believe I know why there is a double standard when it comes to sluts. It's easy for a girl to do it, and it's really hard for a guy to do it.
Thats the misconception though. Its not that easy for a girl unless she looks like a model (I mean it could be if you were into fugly guys with no standards that you could just scrape off a bar floor).

Have you ever worked in retail? It's common for ugly girls to be walking through with their kids. Honestly, a woman doesn't have to be a 10 to get laid. They tend to be more selective though. Some girls unfortunately go for anything that comes along because they don't think they have a chance with most guys. Stop that. You're beautiful and don't let anyone tell you different. I know I almost went off topic but it was all in the point.

It's only okay to derail a thread if it's to piss on what people believe.

Seriously, some people came to read about the actual topic.
Not going after beliefs, but how people defend said beliefs.

Topic is about Double standards of all kinds, including how some people defend their beliefs.

It is apt to discuss these things.

That's kind of my point though, that people do not distinguish between theories and facts, and then ridicule others.
In regards to the Creationism vs. Evolution, creationists only have word of god to go by, while Scientists can demonstrate the process of natural selection (the process by which Evolution would occur) using fossil records and experiments with bacteria.

Scientists can prove natural selection, they just can't prove the theory of Evolution, that natural selection is what caused us. Just in the same way that scientists can prove that things will fall towards earth, and measure the effect of this mysterious pull, but have no explanation for what causes it.
Now you're confusing evolution and abiogenesis. Natural selection is what causes evolution, abiogenesis is a theory concerning the origination of the first lifeforms.
I don't really blame you though, it seems to be a common mistake, as well as one that unfortunately tends to start ridiculous discussions on it's own.

I'm not saying they have to be a ten to get laid, but people saying its really easy for women seem to think that any guy will be willing to shag any willing girl, which is just darn silly.
Men have standards and preferances just like women do. Nobody is everybody's cup of tea.

At first, yes, but a lot of it ended up as just a pissing contest.


Anyhow, as for the actual topic:

why is it okay for minorities to be racist?

Speaking more of this topic, in fiction, if a white girl is perfect in every way, she's a mary sue. If a non white girl is perfect in every way, she's a revolutionary character.

When women pee sitting down it's totally okay, but when I do it I'm a pansy?

Fuck you, it was designed to sit on so I'm sitting on it.

Not only ponies are evil though... (Just having a bit of fun, I'm not taking this seriously)

this... it reminds me of the movie apollo 18


and it further reminds me that, these 'ponies' tend to crawl inside you just to burst out of your chest.

vile creatures. your move...
Your picture isn't working. Your move >:)

If you do get it working, here's my card...


Why are we even having a battle of creepypasta fan art again? Just asking :D

Okay then. Where did the universe come from? tiny dot, right?
where did that tiny dot come from?
Exactly, it existed because somebody said it existed.

Why is the "theory" of relativity accepted. because it came from Einstein.


Why is it okay for the pot to call the kettle black?

Wait, see that part where I actually made that related to double standards, instead of just a flame war.

Let's do that.
The universe came from a dot. Sure. Where did the dot come from? Science has no clue last time I checked, but that doesn't automatically make it god.

The "theory" of relativity is accepted not because it came from Einstein, but because it is easily observed in our every day lives. Without it, GPS satellites would not work.

I KNEW I wasn't hallucinating when the pot insulted the kettle. You raise a good point, we should try to stop our pots insulting all our kitchen supplies. Equality for all pots, pans and kettles!

Now to add one of my own. With siblings, sibling A can do something like, say, go out and spend a fortune in a club. Sibling B spends a little more than intended (and nowhere near the amount sibling A spent) and gets chewed out for it.

What kind of men have you shared a bathroom with? They need to get a laser sight attachment, because it's really not hard for me to aim the thing.

A flashlight attachment would come in handy at night...

Unfortunately, there's a lot of double standards.

Frankly, far too many people I meet are perfectly okay with something if it benefits them, but utter hypocrites ten minutes later.

To be blunt, I see most of the double standards when I deal with women, though by no stretch of the imagination are any race, color, or creed innocent.

Controversial one?

I saw a group of 'african-american teens' gathered in front of my place of work, where Loitering is in fact illegal and posted so.

When I told them to leave, there of course was a storm of complaints and demands for explanation, and of course the Race Card. Thing is, they know it's not racist. They know it's nothing to do with it. They claim it as a cheap, bullshit power play to get their way.

Here's the double standard I hate the most:

"You can't judge me just by my chosen appearance and how I act!"

In the above example:

a) this particular group had chosen to dress and act as close to the media stereotype of criminals as they could.
b) they were committing a crime (Loitering)
c) due to a) and c) they are actively frightening other customers and their children.

So, Double Standard: No one can judge *them* by their appearance...but if you attempt to enforce a clearly posted law, *you* are judged as a Racist.

(I'm running out of creepy Adventure Time fanart! Actually, I have run out. Why is there such a deluge of MLP scary fan stuff, whereas the MORE messed up show gets barely any! Guess it's because of the innocence of MLP)

People who will go home after work or spend a majority of their days off watching hours upon hours of garbage on t.v.- but will tell ME I am wasting MY life because I play a couple of hours of video games during some of my free-time. Makes me feel all ragey inside.

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.
Did you even read what he wrote? Your comment really makes you look ignorant of the main topic he is trying to impose.
I never said he took his social ques from porn, just that I wouldn't know how to respond to somebody who did do that. Get off your high horse.

SNIP! Also, spoiler your pictures. It's just common courtesy and those are pretty disturbing pictures.
I admit defeat. This battle had been fought well. What we have learnt today, is that Adventure Time has much less creepy shit based on it than MLP. We have proven something that nobody would ever want or care about! We have done a good thing today!

Now let's have a discussion. Why do you think people make more creepypasta and creepy fan arts of MLP than they do of Adventure Time? I reckon it's because bronies are a much bigger fanbase than Adventure Time. We're also a much more creative fanbase, with a lot of people willing to do fanart. Also, it's the internet, nuff said.
