    Equal Society or Double Standard?

    in Entertainment

    Every one of us has decried a double standard at some point. If you’re kind of perplexed by what we mean when we use that term, think of things like gender roles, for example. What do you think of when you hear that the trash needs taken out? The man, right? What about cooking dinner? Cleaning the house? The woman, right? What about double standard in the workplace when it comes to paying women? There are some much more common double standards that we rarely complain about since we're too busy obliviously believing in them. But you’ve likely come across some double standards that have always driven you nuts! Join us on the FAB Hour as we discuss some double standards that became trending this week.
