In case you weren't previously aware, the world we live in today is plagued by double standards, which most people are happy to ignore in the name of 'keeping the peace.' When Twitter users were asked by Hashtag Roundup to share some double standard examples using the hashtag #NowThatsADoubleStandard, they disturbed that peace like there was no tomorrow.

Some of them are 'classics' that we're all familiar with; men being made to feel ashamed for crying, women being called 'bitches' because of their confidence, and the debate over who, exactly, is allowed to go jogging with their top off. To save you the trouble of combing through the busy Twittersphere, we've compiled some of the best Tweets to the thread right here on Bored Panda for your viewing pleasure. Or displeasure, because, let's face it, double standards in social interactions are pretty infuriating.

Scroll down to take it all in, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Y'know, because of this stupid double standard, I find out almost impossible to cry when I need to let go of sorrow and pain. There's many a time I wished I could cry but couldn't.

Not all teachers are great.. They are humans and as in all areas, some can be pretty crappy humans. I had some awesome teachers, but also had my share of bad ones..

When I go home with someone, I write a quick Whatsapp to a close friend who I go out with and where he lives. In case I will get murdered the police will has more clues.

This one is especially bad. Grey hair should be seen as a sign of wisdom, not age. Also, i think this is a stereotype because women tend to dye their hair more often than men.

I've met plenty of creepy cute people, and some truly charasmatic, intelligent, funny "not-so-cute" (according to once culture's very limited, commercialised interpretation of "cute") people who I adore spending time with.

This is so true... I have many friends who have had this experience when dating. We often discuss if it's a trend in society today, that people don't want to compromise, but wish for their potential partners to be a perfect match.

I am an avid horror film fan and this has bothered me a lot. I personally find sex scenes stupid and unnecessary and have often found myself to chose a 13 rated film over an 18 because I can expect more gore and less sex. That shouldn't be.

Let me be pedantic and point out that Eric here did not mean "sexually or sexyly kissing". Just a simple pek on the cheeck between two men is enough to make most of the people freak out.

so your only angry American Gis were killed? not all the millions of allied fighters trying to protect the world from at tyrannical regime or the millions of innocent Jews? This is a good point but its worded really badly. All Nazis are evil no matter when they live/lived or what country they are from.

I think that this is completely unfair, so I rebel by only shaving twice a month and only in spring and early autumn, for this is the time when you have to go to school and the weather is hot.

I Romania you can stay all day long on a beach topless, nobody boders you. In mall or restaurant nobody goes in topless, man or woman. But on beach you are free.

I don't really see the double standard here... I'm vegeterian AND I donc "discard carelessly my rubbish", so what's the point ? Is there like an "exclusively vegeterian rubbish polluting the ocean" that I'm not aware of ? It concerns everyone actually, no matter what we eat !

I don't see that as a double standard. But rather an informed critique.
