We live in a world full of double standards! where we accept different yardsticks for different people often based on gender, religion, wealth, color of skin, nationality etc.
Why is that what applies to others does not apply to me and vice versa? We see it everywhere and in everyone, be it schools, offices or public places.
Many of us have a tendency to be judgmental of others. It is like if we are in similar situations, we paint a different picture. A more sympathetic one of ourselves and “ serves them right” picture for others.
Why do he have double standards ? But our society is ridden with double standards, for e.g. “A man can order around and he is treated like someone who is in charge and a leader. But when a woman communicates in the exact same way, she’s immediately labeled assertive, dominating, aggressive.” I fail to understand why in earlier times, boys got a better education that girls, when girls are better at academics and work?
I also wonder why celebrities are treated on a different standard than a commoner, be it at a place of worship, airports, criminal acts and so on. Even justice is delayed or fast depending on your being a celebrity.
Double standard is widely prevalent in the case of women, be it in wages paid for the same work, glass ceilings in offices, selection of women for certain positions, renting houses and ever so many areas
Having a double standard is a negative trait, These situations of double standards arise when we are devoid of sincerity in words and action and fail to see the right perspective. For this you need empathy, and selflessness. Double standards differ from hypocrisy , former is a rule or principle unfairly applied to different ways to different groups in a similar situation, while the latter is when your actions differ from your words
Double standards cause confusion and are unjust. To me having double standards means we are self centred , have a mean mentality and different yardsticks of measurement.
