3.) Anti-Male Double Standards (10%)
This is a widespread issue that’s related to #10. There seems to be the notion that when men break a gender barrier, such as playing field hockey, they’re being aggressive, bent on winning. At the same time, if a girl wants to play football, she’s a groundbreaking fighter for women’s rights. An adult man has a relationship with a younger teenage girl? He’s a disgusting pedophile. A teenage guy with an adult woman? She’s lauded and called a cougar—it’s considered hot. While women seldom go unpunished in cases of abuse, their sentencing is often nowhere near as severe as men’s.
