35 Illustrations Proving Society’s Double Standards That You Too Maybe Guilty Of

“All men and women are created equal” That, of course, is a saying that will always remain a saying, it is never practiced in the world we live in where our present society reeks of double standards rampant in every sphere of life. Given the fact that we may have come a long way to the point of recognizing that inequality does exist and there are many stalwarts and social activists championing such a cause, still, the journey is a long one. However, it doesn’t hurt sometimes to portray such human vice through a comical perspective and that’s exactly what you will see here. These illustrations of society’s double standards are the prime example of the problems we face today. Read on.

1 It is ok to titillate a consumer but this in public? Is oh so bad

David Horsey’s illustration accompanying an article in the LA times rightly addressed how hypocritical society is where it’s ok for models to parade half-naked on a ramp or be displayed on billboards to titillate and attract a consumer, but breastfeeding in public and you may get several fingers pointing at you. Get this! Horsey found that 12000 women are arrested every year for breastfeeding in public.

2 It isn’t only the men

Now isn’t this a common scenario in every place, hot men or women are much preferred than those regarded by some as not good looking.

3 Definitely the looks have it

Cute gal gorging on food, yes she is cute, she is pretty, she’s attractive. Overweight gal gorging on food, How Gross!! You need to diet babe!!

4 We are definitely warped as human beings

This image explains it all, draw a female character and it invites sexist remarks, draw a male with little to the imagination and voila, that’s ok. It could be vice versa too.

5 And here’s another one

Judge for yourself if this scenario is true. What most people don’t realize is that the opposites do attract so if you are going to be going ooo la la over a man in tights, let the men do the same too.

6 Look in the mirror first before making a comment

Criticism if constructive is ok otherwise learn to shut up because you should always smell your own armpits first before rattling off about someone else’s looks.

7 When you’re a parent

Isn’t it weird how society has stereotyped gender roles where a woman by default needs to do her job as a mom but a man doing the same in public means he’s doing a favor by being a dad.

8 Society is never satisfied

There is only one solution to such a situation. To hell with the rest!! Just do your thing, be your own person. If you are happy in what you do, the rest can kiss your….

9 Another case of look at yourself first

How easy it is to criticize someone else without really knowing what others may be thinking of you. It is only an inconsiderate person who shoots a mouth full of garbage.

10 The gender gap

Get this!! Man maketh a mistake, it’s a mistake you suck pal. Woman maketh a mistake, not only does she suck, it’s because she’s a woman. Seriously!!

11 Archie has a nice way of saying things

Trust Archie to bring up something like this, and it was aptly titled “Double standard”. But this is so very true in life when society describes the same situation differently for men and women.

12 Game of armor and something really funny

This is a hilarious one as we can’t keep posting serious stuff all the time now can we? But this is so true too.

13 How we see each other

This is the biggest hypocritical act of society. A man with many women is a stud while a woman with many men is a slut. The surprising thing? She is criticized by her own gender too.

14 Justice?? There isn’t any

Well, the cartoon sums it all up. Men can become bowls of lard but if women put on a little weight, it’s either, you’ve gone fat, you’ve got love handles, you’re out of shape etc.

15 A true example of a male chauvinist pig

This is not exactly a scenario only in cartoons, it is very real in societies across the world where women are stereotyped into gender-specific roles and not expected to be what is considered a male prerogative.

16 Believe it or not, it’s all around the world

This is, in fact, an everyday scene in places like India where women from conservationist and traditional families can be as bitchy as hell. This rightly exposes the hypocrisy between modern and traditional women.

17 When roles are reversed

A woman refusing well, she hasn’t right to, she’s so shallow. But when the situation is reversed, then she happens to be desperate??? Hopefully, times are changing.

18 Double standards

Even having a good figure can be detrimental to your health and invite criticism not by the opposite sex but by your own kind and this is so very true. Jealousy is a bane of society and it rears its ugly head in every circumstance.

19 You can never make the right choice because by default you’re always wrong

This is exactly what is happening with women in the world today. If you contemplate abortion, you’ll invite God’s wrath, if you plan to have your baby, you’re a leech on the dole system.

20 The hypocritical chump

21 Men get on the wrong side of society too

Doesn’t this reek of the truth what’s wrong with our society today? Double standards are everywhere.

22 Classic case of inconsideration for others

How convenient. As long as it isn’t your daughter, then who really cares. The moment it involves your family then there’s different attitude.

23 Has this happened to you?

Parents!! Aren’t they always right and retain the right to do things which you should never do!!. This is a classic situation but I suppose, you too can do it when you’re all grown up.

24 This is an all-time classic

This perhaps sums up everything that is wrong with the society where viewing women are concerned. Make up your goddamn mind, you want her all covered or you want her to look good.

25 And another one at work

This is another illustration showing what women actually face in the workplace. Ok fine, it may not have happened to you, but it sure does happen to a lot of women out there.

And another one at work.

26 Typical of society‘s way of thinking

This is what is wrong with our human brains. Everything is stereotyped and taken by default. Even men aren’t safe from social sexism, Let alone women.

27 You can never please

This is typical where women too bitch about others simply because they lack the courage to love themselves and be open and do the things they love in life.

28 This is classic you can’t escape it

But we can if we start thinking differently. Sexual harassment is never a woman’s fault of clothes. The majority of the worst rapes in history were done to women who were fully clothed.

This is classic you can’t escape it

29 Equality for all

Not every time can you be right dear, can you?? There are some men and women who are always hard to please especially those shooting off their mouth how they are discriminated against when they are the ones invariably in the wrong.

Equality for all

30 Sexism goes both ways

This is such a common scenario that women can never be themselves for acceptance but have to constantly hide beneath a mask. Yet men?? It’s the same story always.

31 You can’t always be right

Some people are always complaining how life is unfair without seeing that they too are guilty of the very same problem they accuse others of.

32 Double standards

Of course, how can we accept a woman with unshaven legs now can we? This stereotype and discrimination make all those hair removal companies oh so very happy.

33 Men stare when women bare but when men bare?

Women share of course, that so gross, he’s a bloody pervert. Although of course, it may be unthinkable for a man to bare part of his John Thomas in public but still!!

34 Men should be men

Why is it that a man can’t invite a guy over to hang out, it doesn’t mean he is queer does it? But that’s what’s wrong with society today. Gender stereotypes are fixed in place.

Men should be men

35 What exactly does society expect?

Double standards are everywhere. You can’t escape it but you can choose to fight it and stand up when you see or experience it because what is right is right. In today’s world, you need to care two hoots for people with double standards.
