I'll never forget it. I was dating this guy who had this brother. They lived in an apartment dedicated to stereotypical maledom. Black leather couch, black mica entertainment unit, framed sport prints on the walls, and a fridge full of Bud Light.
One morning, the brother straggles in, and when asked, says he won't be going out again with the women from the night before because she slept with him on the first date.
"Uh, you did the same thing," I said, stating the obvious.
His comeback? "It's different for girls."
I remember wondering if she'd be hurt. I remember hoping that she'd realize she'd dodged a bullet. I remember thinking, Geez, I hope he was at least a good lay.
The sexual double standard is completely ridiculous.
Look, I don't do casual sex. So a match for me is someone else who's not looking to hop right into the snack either - and there are PLENTY of guys for whom that is the case.
Just like there's PLENTY of women who enjoy a robust casual sex life. I suppose you can called them sluts if you want to, but I'm going to laugh at you for using such a funny, nonsensical word. Oh, those women who have sex whenever they want with whoever they want! Almost makes you think women are free and equal or something.
over at The Chokkklit Shop: The Dreadful Dating Double Standard.
The first time a woman has relations with a guy she's crazy about is an exciting and special time. Still, the question remains; when? Well, it depends.... Some women are happy to get down to business the night they meet; others will wait weeks or months before doing the deed. Whatever a woman's decision, I had to ask: Does the double standard still exist today? In other words, if a woman gives up the cookie to a guy too soon, does she automatically nix her chances for long-term love or is that old-fashioned nonsense in today's modern-day dating scene? To find out, I have interviewed men and women to get different perspectives on the subject at hand.
People should do what feels right and appropriate for them. Sometimes that will mean waiting, sometimes it won't. Whenever you meet a guy that thinks one set of standards applies to him and another set applies to you, the only right and appropriate thing to do is to run for the hills! Get as far away from him as possible!
The teacher (who will have been a single girl in her 20s, most likely) got up there, unwrapped a piece of gum, started chewing it (some of you may already know where we're headed with this), took it out of her mouth, and asked if anyone wanted it. Of course, no one did.
And why did they not want it? Because it's been used. it's not good anymore. And when we break the law of chastity, see, we become LIKE USED GUM. There was no mention of the Atonement, no shiny new piece of gum to show what we can be like after repentance, none of that. You're just a dirty, used, whore. A couple of girls tried to bring up the whole Atonement thing but the class just could not move on from the gum analogy.
