Women are faced with the most ridiculous double standards. Some I can deal with, some I cannot.
Having sex with a plethora of people equals “Ho”….Acceptable for safety reasons
Frowned upon for abandoning your child…Acceptable because it’s harder to abandon a thing that lived inside of you. I guess.
But one double standard I cannot accept is that women have to look pretty for damn near forever, but have to be okay with their men being out of shape ug-mugs.
Women are always looked at with fault for letting themselves go when meanwhile fat husband and pretty wife (at least a high 6) is seen as the norm in most sitcoms and in general life.
I know that the woman is supposed to be the pretty one in the relationship, but do women really have to accept men looking like Carl Winslow while the men expect women to look like booty models?
This is an unspoken rule, but it happens and I’m tired of it.
The first thing out of a man’s mouth when a woman does not get into shape quick enough after childbirth is that she let herself go. But when a man packs on numerous pounds for no reason at all or is even a little ugly in the face no one ever questions him. It is perfectly fine for him to be a butterball, no definition having slug of a man and expect you to be bad forever.
Why is nobody is ever disappointed in men for not looking like Tyson Beckford?
Men get yourself in shape for your women.
Go to the gym.
Go run outside.
Go ride a bike.
Do something to give you a place to criticize her if she’s not looking her best.

You can’t be regular money
Jay-Z and expect a Beyonce. Even rich Jay-Z shouldn’t expect Beyonce, he better count his blessings.
