That people find it "cute" when an adult woman, barely dressed, in a suggestive manner kiss a little kid. People even make comments like "lucky boy!". But when it's the other way around (a half naked man, in a suggestive manner kissing a little girl) everyone's against it.

Let's clarify it, it's wrong in both ends. Little kids shouldn't be put out in a sexualised spotlights.

Guys can go get a vasectomy at an early age to not have children, but I am going to be 40 on Sunday, have had three children ranging from 15-20 and have multiple female issues and am a high risk for uterine, cervical and ovarian cancer and insurance may deny me to have a hysterectomy because I haven't tried "birth control" yet. Ummm I can't have kids my tubes were tied after my last baby because it would've literally killed me and the baby had I gotten pregnant again. So let me just rip out the plumbing to feel better, there's no reason to have a cycle every month to prepare my body for a baby I'm never going to have.

It makes complete sense the countries with some of the strongest armies and nuclear capacity sit permanently at the same table. It gives them the incentive to solve issues there instead of on the battlefield. Big powers have far fetching interests, it's easier to step on their toes. If they would be only observers and the Council decides over their head about their business it would hurt their pride. And it's always a much bigger war if at lease one of the big powers is involved. The good thing about the Council it gives the same voting and vetoing power to smaller countries. Sure all these make it much harder to have things done. But this mechanism wasn't present when the World Wars started. It gives another chance for peace.

The double standards in the American media was super evident during the recent Israeli bombardment of the West Bank. It was constantly referred to as a “conflict”, which does not do justice to the severe power imbalance. During the “conflict”, Israelis were killed. Meanwhile, the hundreds of children on the other end of Israel’s missiles “died”. And it doesn’t end with the American media, the bias is within Israel, too. Inside Jerusalem, the Israeli Courts removed the Arabs from their homes, saying the homes were built without a permit. Ok, guilty as charged, we’ll move out. But wait, what’s this? Jewish settlers get to live in my home, the one you just said was built illegally, and by your orders? The influential Western countries won’t say anything because these are white people oppressing people of color, just look how similar problems in other countries are rooted out so quickly by those same countries.

Men’s clothing is rarely fashionable though. It’s always the same iterations of things.

That's not a double standard, but a result of the law of supply and demand.

Or maybe there is more demand, pushing prices up. But it is not a double standard.

Ooh, I actually have a few.

First, how people can treat… adolescents… without apparent fear of consequences or retaliation.
My parents, for example, have told me that I “should know how to [insert action] by now, because we won’t be there when you’re in college.” At the same time, I’m basically the IT person in my family. Among many other experiences, I’ve helped my grandmother turn off the flashlight on her iPhone- while calling me from the same phone!- and after ‘fixing’ it, she said, “what am I going to do when you’re in college?”
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve still helped them when they asked. I just wish them good luck for the next four years, when I’ll be in college.

Second, how people of different backgrounds are treated after a particular event.
At barely 18 years old, I am a second-degree black belt in Taekwondo. I have helped students older but lower in rank than me with learning material many times, as part of my leadership training. I’ve heard my instructors tell me to put in more effort into my form, yet I’ve also heard them tell lower-rank, ‘older’ students to take their training slow. I’m not annoyed as much by this, but I still find it ironic.

The third double standard that I can think of is simultaneously the most personal and, to a different degree, the most widespread.
I have both childhood brain cancer(August 2013) and epilepsy(May 2020). My prescription has messed with my mind in more ways than one; look up the effects of levetiracetam and lamotrigine for a general idea. Toward the end of this past school year, I lost motivation to do much in school; are 12 years of work and 4 years of not enough sleep really worth some clothes and a folder? (I did end up graduating, so everything worked out.) My resource room teacher seemed to just dismiss my perspective as looking forward to the school year ending, seemingly ignoring my new diagnosis and the fact that we were (trying to) attend classes across screens, 7 hours a day. I don’t hate her for her response- I might have said the same thing in her position, and she is a great teacher- but I don’t know if she said the same thing to everyone else.

Government offices want to avert hostile work environments, but employees at a local office have to deal with both verbal and physical abuse from people in the homeless encampment on the building's property.

Our office has similar issues with homeless and drunks, or just people on drugs. We would get people begging for money or to buy them food. ( I obliged one lady asking for coffee, then as we were walking to the food court she changed 1 coffee for a freakin' Big Mac meal) Our office building is also sort of attached weirdly to the hotel and other buildings. The building owner started locking the doors to the skywalk in the evening, and the doors to the stairwell were then locked so you could still use them as a fire escape but you can't go back to the office. The hotel started doing the same thing. Our office still didn't implement a card access system nor extra security to monitor the main entrances at all times.

I used to be really annoyed by how men could walk around or go running in the summer heat with no shirt on but women had to wear sweat-inducing polyester bras with tops over them. But karma seems to be in effect, at least at the beach now. Women's bathing suits have become so minimal they don't even have butt coverings anymore and 3/4 of their boob can be showing, while men have to wear knee length, bulky shorts. Some guys have 10 times as much fabric on them as the woman they are strolling down the beach with.

Either way, it's not equal. It's not "karma" or "payback" for inequality, it's just creating more inequality.

That having a boyfriend (or just being in a relationship as a teen in general) is trashy and irresponsible or that sex is bad and immoral, but at the same time expecting teenagers (especially girls) to be interested in that type of thing, pressuring them to want to get married latter in life etc. This double standard can make people feel bad about being in a relationship, and can especially make it confusing for lgbtq kids and those on the asexual spectrum. In my opinion it's just kinda toxic to raise kids this way.

The Military tells you to ask for help and talk to someone of you have issues mentally. You ask for help. Then they send you to another unit or discharge you all together. It’s not every time, but it does happen quite a bit.

people use different standards for making inferences about others' abilities based on social status, religious beliefs, and political inclinations. Though people do not approach color and creed directly, that racism exists in them and they sometimes show it by different mediums and then pretend not to.

Being asked : 1. What does your husband do? 2. What church do you go to? Never being asked what I do. Never married. Don't attend church. So so glad about both.
