50+ Double Standard Comics

Today, we live in a world where we face double standards on a regular basis. What applies to women won’t apply to men and vice versa. What you can get away with when you’re rich might not be the same when you’re poor. We try to be unbiased, but sometimes those biases just sneak in, even if we don’t mean them to.

Double standards can be annoying. They can also teach us about how we perceive the world (and what we might still need to work on). Sometimes they can even be funny, especially if you take them with a grain of salt.

Here are 55 double standard comics that we can definitely relate to.

playground
 
If a dad brings the kids to the park, he’ll get praised for being such a good parent. If a mom does it, chances are she’ll be judged for not keeping a good enough eye on the kids. Moms are just expected to be perfect and get called out when they aren’t. Meanwhile, dads can do a halfway job and get nothing but applause. Some things are just unfair.
work
  
She is completely flattered when the attractive man compliments her. When the heavyset, older coworker gives her the same compliment, she feels as if she is being harassed. Sadly, this happens more often than it should, but hey, a compliment is a compliment!
shirt
They always say that bigger is better, but in some instances, it’s really not. If you have a friend that isn’t as busty as you, but you have the same shirt, obviously, it is going to fit you differently. The clothing industry really doesn’t keep every body type in mind, and sometimes we just want to wear what everyone else is wearing.
no
 
When a girl says no or turn a guy they find unattractive down, they always get judged hard for it, and there is always some reason behind it. Usually, people say that she thinks she is just too good for him, even though it may not be the case. When a guy turns a girl down though, it’s always okay, and it’s usually because she’s just being desperate. Now, that’s a double standard.
chivalry
 
While more couples are splitting the bill these days, there are still some circumstances in which we expect the man to pay for dinner. It’s not usually looked on negatively, but making more money so you can afford to can definitely land any guy in hot water.
