The Beauty of Being Multilingual: The Double Standard Story
One of the greatest things with being multilingual is that you have that many more ways to express yourself.
But, the fun comes in when you’re surrounded by people who don’t know you know their language.
I was taking my last final yesterday, when two guys were talking about stuff I’m sure they wouldn’t want me or anyone else to know. They were sitting one row ahead of me speaking at the top of their lungs, so it’s not my fault for hearing their conversation. They were saying explicit stuff about girls, in which case I’d usually laugh at them for being a “typical guy,” but this time, the things that were being said really angered me.
For starters, roughly translated, the guy on the left was talking about a girl who “is a giver” and had slept with her boyfriend, and he’s even slept with her at one time. The guy on the right then asked him to “hook it up” so that he can get some too. Now, if they were to be talking about the mere act of sex, I wouldn’t care as much. What they were actually talking about was saying that because the girl was not a virgin (and had slept with her boyfriend of all people), then she’s an automatic whore. Well, I don’t understand why it’s okay for HIM to sleep with a girl and be perfectly fine with it, while SHE on the other hand gets the dirty labeling.
I mean, even with the example they brought up, the girl was with HER BOYFRIEND… not sleeping around with several guys at a time, so that makes their labeling that much more stupider and infuriating. But say she was to sleep with a guy who **drum rolls** was not her boyfriend, as long as it’s a mutual thing between the guy and the girl, why would it be anyone else’s problem? Especially since the guy made it okay for him to sleep around and not care about the girl. I can’t stand this whole double standard most guys put on girls.
Seriously, get over yourselves, and join the twenty-first century.
How do you feel about guys labeling girls as whores just because they’re not virgins?
