"Double Standard Quotes" refers to a phrase that highlights the existence and consequences of double standards in our society. A double standard is a set of principles or rules that are unfairly applied in different situations, often based on factors such as gender, race, or social status.
This quote serves as a reminder of the inconsistencies and biases that can be found in our everyday interactions and expectations. It prompts us to reflect on the potential harm caused by these double standards and encourages us to challenge and address them in order to promote fairness and equality for all.
Below are various double standard quotes with their meanings/explanations;
“We cannot use a double standard for measuring our own and other people’s policies. Our demands for democratic practices in other lands will be no more effective than the guarantees of those practiced in our own country.” - Hubert H. Humphrey
Democracy is one of the most cherished values in the world. It is an ideal that many people believe in, and it is something that we as a society have strived for throughout our history. In theory, democracy is a system where everyone has a voice and can participate in the decision-making process. However, when it comes to applying democracy to our own country, we often have a double standard.
”It’s a double standard. They say these management guys are so valuable. They are not. This is typical corporate greed.” - Bobby De Pace
The harsh reality is that these management 'gurus' are anything but. The vast majority of these individuals are not nearly as valuable as they would like you to believe. In fact, they are often nothing more than glorified managers with little to no expertise in the industry they are working in.
“There is a double-standard between men and women. My father was a major league baseball player, and I grew up thinking I could have the same attitude on the field that he did. When I did that in real life, people thought I was a total bi-atch.” - Katie Uhlaender
There is a double-standard between men and women. Women are expected to be delicate, sweet and submissive on the one hand, but tough, independent and strong on the other. However, this is not always the case in reality. Many women have the same ambitions, desires and skills as men, only they are not given the opportunity to prove it.
“Fox doesn’t treat me any differently, and that’s one thing I’m very lucky with – my network treats me like a woman, but they never make me feel like I don’t fit in or anything like that, which is great. But within the industry, yeah. It’s a double standard, but it’s something that you have to deal with or try to make better; turn into a positive.” - Erin Andrews
She is lucky to have a network that treats her as a woman. She never feels like she doesn't fit in or anything, which is great.
“When I kiss a girl for a part, people think it’s sexy. But if two guys kiss, suddenly there’s a backlash. It’s a double standard.” - Olivia Wilde
When it comes to sexuality, there's a clear double standard when it comes to kissing between men and women. For example, when a man kisses a woman for a part in a movie or TV show, it can be seen as sexy and charming. But if two men kiss, suddenly there is a backlash against them. People claim that it's a form of assault or that it's not 'normal' behaviour.
“It is vain to expect virtue from women till they are in some degree independent of men.” - Mary Wollstonecraft
They must be allowed their own sphere, and not be crushed under the weight of arbitrary authority. A woman's natural timidity must be aroused, and she must be taught self-reliance and reliance on her own powers. In this way she will acquire the qualities which are necessary for moral excellence.
“My mother told me, you don’t have to put anything in your mouth you don’t want to. Then she made me eat broccoli, which felt like double standards.” - Sarah Millican
Her mother told her that she didn't have to put anything in her mouth that she didn't want to. But then she made her eat broccoli, which felt like double standards. She supposed that if she could eat broccoli, then anyone could. It was a hard lesson to learn, but one that she eventually got over.
“The double standard of morality will survive in this world so long as the woman whose husband has been lured away is favored with the sympathetic tears of other women, and a man whose wife has made off is laughed at by other men.” - H. L. Mencken
There is a double standard of morality in the world. When a woman's husband is lured away by another woman, society sympathizes with her, while when a man's wife makes an honest mistake and engages in an affair, society looks down on her. This double standard will continue as long as women are favored over men in terms of sympathy and condemnation.
“Treat all as your own self. Do not have a double standard.” - Sathya Sai Baba
Too often, we have a double standard when it comes to treating others as we would want to be treated. We expect people to act in a certain way towards us, but if someone does not behave in the same manner towards us, we often think that person is wrong. This is not only unfair, but it can also be harmful. The best way to overcome this problem is to learn how to treat all people as if they are your own self.
“I will not calm down! Women are allowed to get angrier than men about double standards.” - Liz
The speaker in this quote is clearly frustrated with the way that society imposes different expectations on men and women. In particular, she points out the way that women are often expected to be more mellow and temperate than men when it comes to dealing with frustration or anger. This is a situation that she firmly rejects as unfair and unjustified.
“We have a double standard, which is to say, a man can show how much he cares by being violent see, he’s jealous, he cares a woman shows how much she cares by how much she’s willing to be hurt; by how much she will take; how much she will endure; how suicidal she’s prepared to be.” - Andrea Dworkin
At first, it may seem unfair that we have a double standard when it comes to violence and care. After all, men can show how much they care by being violent, while women must show how much they care by being willing to be hurt. This is, however, not always the case. In fact, there are times when a woman can show how much she cares by how much she’s willing to be hurt.
“A man can define many things beautifully in his life, but his character is one beautiful thing that can define him instantly and completely.” - Anuj Somany
Character is one of the most important things in life, and it is something that cannot be measured or quantified. No one can truly understand another person until they get to know them on a personal level. Character is made up of many different aspects, such as moral values, beliefs, and habits. But what makes a character really stand out is how they deal with difficult circumstances. The way someone handles adversity defines their character.
“Most people sell their souls and live with a good conscience on the proceeds.” - Logan Pearsall Smith
There is a dark side to the soul-selling industry. For many people, it's a way to make ends meet and live with a good conscience. However, there are also those who use this practice to exploit desperate people. In this article, we look at the pros and cons of selling one's soul.
“Now look, all I’m trying to say is that there are lots of things that a man can do, and in society’s eyes it’s all hunky-dory. A woman does the same things-the same things mind you-and she’s an outcast…All I’m saying is why let this deplorable system seep into our courts of law where women are supposed to be equal.” - Katharine Hepburn
In today's society, it is considered perfectly acceptable for a man to do the same things as a woman and be considered an "outcast". However, this is not always the case. Throughout history, men have been seen as the dominant sex and have been able to do whatever they please without retribution. In recent years, however, there has been a resurgence of feminism and women are starting to break free from traditional roles.
“Leaders scan the future so it can be free of doubts and fear. They do so by not living a double standard life in the present.” - Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders who seek to understand the future are not living in a bubble. They are not living in a world where they can disregard what is happening in the present and only focus on the future. Leaders understand that they must live a double standard life so that they can have a clear understanding of what is happening and what may happen.
“A politician is a man who will double-cross that bridge when he comes to it.” - Oscar Levant
Political operatives know that a politician is a man who will double-cross that bridge when he comes to it. This is not just a cliché - it's the reality of politics. Even though politicians are often depicted as upstanding and honest people, they will often exploit any opportunity to get what they want. In order to win elections, they must be able to flip-flop on critical issues, and sometimes this means breaking promises to their constituents.
“Many of us believe that wrongs aren’t wrong if it’s done by nice people like ourselves.” - Unknown
People often believe that wrongs done by nice people don't count as wrong. In fact, many of us think that it's okay for people to do things that are harmful or hurtful to others if they are considered nice people. This is a dangerous idea, and it needs to be stopped. There are countless examples of how this thinking has led to horrible consequences, and it's time we change the way we think about wrongdoing.
“We always blame the woman when a man falls in love, as though no man had the courage of his inclinations.” - Samuel Taylor
This is not only unfair, but it also ignores the many ways in which a man can fall in love. Some men are drawn to strong women who can take care of them; others find comfort and solace in gentlewomen. The truth is that love is not just something that happens to women; it's something that happens to men too.
“Apparently, when it’s two people, it’s quirky and funny, but when it’s a person doing the same stuff on her own, it’s rebellious and antisocial.” - Katie Alender
This is especially true if the person is considered odd or unpopular by most people. However, there are some who see the uniqueness in this behavior and appreciate it for what it is- an act of defiance.
“If I dare to tear up or shed a tear, then I’m criticized for that as well! It’s a horrible double standard, but quite frankly, I don’t have time enough to fight that battle and fight crime. I chose to fight crime and ignore the rest. I just keep going to the best I can.” - Nancy Grace
Many people believe that if you dare to shed a tear, then you are weak and that you don't have the strength to fight. This is a horrible double standard because it is not okay to be emotional, but it is okay to be tough. It is also not okay to cry, but it is okay to be angry. There should be balance in life so that everyone can feel comfortable.
“Let’s not have a double standard. One standard will do just fine.” - George Carlin
We need to have a single standard for our country, instead of having double standards. We should not judge one another based on our skin color or religion. We should all be treated the same, no matter what our backgrounds are.
“I’m amazed at the adolescent nature of some of the religious fanatics in our government. And they’re full of double standards.” - Dar Williams
Fanaticism of any kind is not only juvenile but also shows a lack of wisdom. In the case of religious fanaticism, it often manifests in unhealthy and irrational beliefs that contradict reality. Unfortunately, this is especially true in cases where people in positions of authority support these beliefs. This was clearly illustrated by recent comments from a high-ranking government official about religious fanatics. The official said that they are "full of double standards.
“We live behind our faces, while they front for us.” - Michael Korda
The hidden life of people is not always what they show the world. In fact, many people go through life without ever really knowing what's going on behind their masks. This is especially true for those who are often considered to be successful and well-liked - people like politicians, celebrities, and CEOs. Behind their facades, these individuals may be dealing with personal struggles, secrets, and anxieties that most people would never know about.
“She was flabbergasted by the backward thinking of humankind. The damaging double standards that fueled gender disparity infuriated her.” - Wiss Auguste, The Illusions of Hope
She saw how women were treated unfairly and how they were often limited in what they could achieve due to their gender. She was determined to change the way people think and act, so that no one would ever have to go through the pain and anguish she had experienced.
“We have two kinds of morality side by side: one which we preach but do not practice and another which we practice but seldom preach.” - Bertrand Russell
The two most common definitions of morality are self-imposed and social. The former is when a person imposes their own personal code of conduct on themselves, while the latter is the code of conduct that is generally accepted by society. Although these two definitions appear to be opposites, they are in fact quite similar. Both require a person to adhere to certain standards in order to participate in society.
“The women always get blamed. Have you noticed that? The wives are nags. The mistress is a bitch for betraying the sisterhood. And the men just fall through the cracks in between. We expect so little from our boys, don’t we, Grace?” - Louise O’Neill, The Surface Breaks
It's no secret that women always get blamed. Whether it be for nagging, being too demanding, or betraying the sisterhood, we expect so little from them. Women are constantly faced with societal expectations that make it difficult to be themselves. We're supposed to be nurturing and supportive, but at the same time we're expected to keep our mouths shut and not rock the boat.
“There’s a double standard between writers and readers. Readers can be unfaithful to writers anytime they like, but writers must never ever be unfaithful to the readers.” - Peter Schjeldahl
This is because readers are the ones who give writers their audience. Writers without readers would not be able to continue writing, no matter how good their work may be. Readers should also be faithful to writers, since they are the ones who provide them with entertainment.
“I think it sucks that in our country [the USA] there is such a double standard education-wise. Which part of the city you live in, or something like that, determines if you’ll be successful, and that’s not fair.” - Charles Barkley
In the United States, one's wealth, or lack thereof, often determines whether or not one will have access to a good education. However, this isn't always the case. For example, children who live in wealthy areas of the country are more likely to attend prestigious schools than those who reside in poor areas. This double standard is called socioeconomic status (SES). SES is based on factors such as where someone lives, their parents' occupation, and their race or ethnicity.
“If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?” - Abraham Lincoln
Two-faced people are often depicted wearing a mask that covers only one side of their face. This mask is meant to represent the person's true personality and what they feel on the inside. Ironically, wearing a two-faced mask can be just as dangerous as not wearing one at all. The mask can deceive others into thinking that the person is genuine when really they are only half of who they really are.
“You hear things like, ‘People shouldn’t know about your life because you’re creating an illusion on-screen.’ But I don’t see other actresses going to great lengths to hide their heterosexuality. That’s an unfair double standard.” - Elliott Page
In the world of Hollywood, it seems that there is a certain code of conduct that dictates what actresses should and shouldn't do when it comes to their personal lives. Actors and actresses are often expected to keep their private lives hidden, even from one another. However, it seems that this isn't always the case. For example, it's not uncommon for actresses to be open about their heterosexuality.
“I think there will always be a double standard between males and females, so I think that an actress is more likely to protect her public persona, so to speak, than an actor would be.” - Mila Kunis
An actress is more likely to protect her public persona, so to speak, than an actor would be. This is because actresses are often judged more harshly than actors and their careers are often shorter. Actors can often take risks and be more open about their personal lives, which may make them less guarded. Additionally, many actresses receive training in how to behave in front of the camera, whereas most actors do not.
“When a man gives his opinion, he’s a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she’s a bitch.” - Bette Davis
In today's society, it is commonplace for both men and women to express their opinions openly. However, there is still a prevailing belief that when a man gives his opinion, he is respected and taken seriously, while when a woman gives her opinion, she is automatically seen as foolish and uneducated. This notion is not only antiquated, but it also holds women back from achieving their full potential.
“Michelle Pfeiffer hasn’t been finding a lot of work recently because she doesn’t like what a woman her age is offered. That’s a real double standard. You get Sean Connery, who gets older and older, still playing opposite young ladies, but it doesn’t work the other way around.” - Denzel Washington
Michelle Pfeiffer is one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood and has been working for years. Despite her many accomplishments, she has not been finding a lot of work recently because she doesn't like what a woman her age is offered. For example, she has not been cast in any major films in the past year because they are all focusing on younger actresses. This is a real double standard because older actors still get opportunities to appear in popular films despite their age.
“The moral world has no particular objection to vice, but an insuperable repugnance to hearing vice called by its proper name.” - William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair
The reason for this is not difficult to understand. Vice is something that we would rather not think about or be forced to confront head-on. We would much rather keep it hidden away, and pretend that it does not exist. But this is a false comfort.
“All a woman has to do is to slip once and she’s a tramp. A man can kill, lie, cheat…” - Joan Crawford
All a woman has to do is slip once and she's bad. She's dirty, vile, and unworthy of being respected. Men can kill, lie, and cheat, but somehow women are always to blame. Society tells us that women are the weaker sex, that they can't be trusted, and that they must always be watched lest they do something wrong. The message is clear: women are not equal to men and should not be treated as such.
“When I see you, I think “I wonder which face she sees when she looks into the mirror.” - C. JoyBell C.
This quote is often used to describe how people can't help but be drawn to others. It's said that we are all attracted to others based on what we see in them. This quote is a great example of how people can't help but be influenced by what they see.
“’Tis not my talent to conceal my thoughts, or carry smiles and sunshine in my face, / When discontent sits heavy at my heart.” - Joseph Addison
In the wake of a heartbreaking loss, one woman opens up about the internal battle she wages every day to keep her emotions in check. Telling her story she describes how difficult it is to maintain a positive facade when her heart feels broken. Despite struggling daily with bouts of sadness, she maintains a positive outlook and refuses to let her negative emotions win.
“No one is talking about the man behind the ass. It was a lot of ‘Miley twerks on Robin Thicke,’ but never, ‘Robin Thicke grinds up on Miley.’ They’re only talking about the one that bent over. So, obviously, there’s a double standard.” - Miley Cyrus
Robin Thicke, the seemingly innocent singer behind the smash hit "Blurred Lines" has been accused of sexual assault by actress and model Paula Patton. For years, many have speculated about the man behind the flashy persona, with many concluding that it was all an act. However, recent revelations suggest that this may not be the case at all.
“I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.” - Jane Austen
Too often, women are portrayed in popular culture and the media as delicate flowers who should be handled with care. This is far from the truth. Women are just as capable of making rational decisions as men, and many of them are brave and powerful individuals. Unfortunately, society still expects women to act in a way that is traditionally seen as feminine, such as being docile and polite. This makes it difficult for women to achieve success or make a positive impact on the world.
“It is forbidden to kill; therefore, all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.” - Voltaire
It is generally forbidden to kill, with the exception of in cases of self-defense or during executions carried out pursuant to a legal order. This rule is upheld by most societies, even in cases where it may lead to the execution of murderers. This is because all murderers are punished, no matter how few people they have killed or how distanced from their victims they were at the time.
“Some people’s blameless lives are to blame for a good deal.” - Dorothy L. Sayers, Gaudy Night
Some people's blameless lives are to blame for a good deal. They don't know how to take advantage of the system and wind up getting what they deserve in the end. Others do know how to take advantage of the system, but because they're charming or have good looks, they get away with it. Whatever the reason, some innocent people wind up paying for the bad decisions of others.
“Morality is what the queen expects from the hive, not from herself.” - Marty Rubin
Queen bees are in charge of the hive and they have a strict set of rules that all the bees must abide by. These rules help to keep the colony organized and safe, but some of these rules may seem strange or unfair to humans. For example, the queen expects the other bees to work hard for her, but she herself is not required to do any work. The queen also expects obedience from her subjects, but she herself is not required to be obedient.
“Ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.” - St. Matthew
The Bible speaks of the wicked as if they were a type of the whited sepulcher. Just as the outward appearance of a sepulcher is beautiful, so too are the wicked considered to be righteous by many. In fact, their righteousness is often what draws people in. However, once inside, all is revealed: dead men's bones and uncleanness. The wicked are nothing but an empty facade, and those who interact with them will soon realize this.
“We weep for a bird’s cry, but not for a fish’s blood. Blessed are those with a voice.” - Mamoru Oshii
The voice of a bird is often revered more than that of a fish because birds have the potential to use it for communicating with others. The use of language is one of the defining differences between humans and other animals. Birds use their voices to engage in conversations, warn others of danger, and attract mates.
“We cannot negotiate with people who say what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.” - John F. Kennedy
There is a fundamental difference between negotiating and bargaining. Negotiating is taking the time to understand the other party's position and finding a mutually agreeable solution. Bargaining is focused on getting as much as possible from the other party in a short amount of time. This difference can be important when it comes to interacting with people who say what's mine is mine and what's yours is negotiable. When negotiating, it's important to understand the other person's goals and motivations.
“I think we cannot have a double standard. We cannot see our art as different from the reality. We cannot use two different sets of judgment.” - Ai Weiwei
We cannot have a double standard. We cannot see our art as different from the reality. We cannot use two different sets of judgment. Our art must be judged on its own merit, not by how it compares to the world around us. Our art must be judged for its artistic value, not by how realistic it is. We must be open-minded and accepting of other people's creative ideas, no matter how different they may be from ours.
“Single vision produces worse illusions than double vision or many-headed monsters.” -Donna J. Haraway
Double vision is common, but it's not the only type of illusion. Single vision produces worse illusions than double vision or many-headed monsters. Researchers used a virtual reality environment to compare how people see different types of illusions. They found that single vision people see more false images and are more likely to get lost in the illusion.
“I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being really good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.” - Oscar Wilde
Hypocrisy is when you pretend to be wicked, but in reality you are really good. It can be a very dangerous thing to do, because it can make people think you are really tough and that you do not care about them. If you are trying to lead a double life, it is important that you remember that people can see through your act. Make sure that you are truly wicked and enjoy hurting others, so they will know that your evil side is real.
“People can’t handle the truth unless you speak to them with a mirror.” - Lakia Echols
The Mirror Effect is a theory that suggests that people only can handle truths if they are spoken to in a mirror image. This is because when we look in the mirror, we see ourselves objectively, without any emotion. This allows us to confront our flaws head on, which can be difficult for some people.
“All I can say is, if you cannot ride two horses, you have no right in the circus.” - James Maxton
The circus is a unique and exciting way to experience the world. It requires a great deal of skill and athleticism to be able to ride two horses at the same time. Anyone who cannot do this has no right to be in the circus.
