Double Standard

So I was thinking the other night about Will and Boogie "playing" Janelle and Erika. W&B's actions are seen by most as great "game play". I agree. But the thing that got me thinking is if Janelle and Erika were the ones "playing" Will and Boogie we would be calling them whores.

Listen, I'm the first to admit that I would be!! And I'm a girl!!

For instance I called Erika nasty and whorish when she started doing more drastic things with Mike so that he would vote to keep her and etc. She was doing the same thing he has been doing this entire game, but we don't see her gameplay as great, most people just thought she was a tramp.

Same thing with Allison a few years ago when she "seduced" Nathan into using the POV on her. People called her a slut!!

In BB5 Drew wasn't seen as a slut for using Diane to get to the final 2!!

My Question.... Why do we have double standards in this game in regards to women and men using flirting and/or sexual manipulation to get further in the game? Or is this just me?

Well yes I am pretty darn sexy, but that's not what you are asking is it?

I guess you meant sexist. :P

To answer the question. Guys play women by being smooth and cool. Woman play men by using their feminine charms on men. In the end. Guys look cool and women look cheap. However, you gotta do what you gotta do.

It is common practice for physically and intelligentlly repulsivemen to call women Whores.

You see, when a man spends all his free time buffing his Darth Vader helmet and only surfaces from his parents basement to attend classic cars shows, any woman who sleeps with him would have to be:

1) Be doing it for payment (prostitute)

2) Have so little self esteem, she's willing to take what she can get (attention whore)

Both common brands of whore.

After a while this takes a toll onthe aformentioned male, and gradually he starts to see all women as whores, because those are all he encounters in his life.

But rest assured, the joke is on him. Because through his hatred of women, he is unable to feel true love and the warmth a woman can bring to his life and as such, there will be nobody in his parents basement to dial 911 when the time comes, and all that will remain for his dear mother when she walks in, will be 7 porn windows open on his PC and the trickle of Taco Bell hotsauce from his mouth, from the meal that finally did him in.....

So really, you need to think about his Mom.

you do have a point, i hated alison in BB4, and a lot of people still hate her because she was such a 'slut'

but now i see a lot of will/mike fans that have no problem with the fauxmance stuff

they say they are making good tv, but i quit turning on my live feeds over a week ago

well, i think boogie is a whore no matter what. a whore and a pig and a disgusting excuse for a human being.

that being said.... yes, there is a big double standard when it comes to men and women. makes me glad that i have a much higher "ick" factor than a whore factor. i just couldnt use sex or anything touchy feely to get something i want... well, unless i wanted the man! if i think a guy is "ick", there is nothing that can get me to cross that line...

boogie is "ick"

Will..... not so much :unsure:

I guess it all depends on where the boundaries in the relationship are. If I recall, Allison didn't really have any boundaries. Erika and Mike go pretty far , but at least they have a boundary. From what I see, Will and Janelle boudaries are pretty tight. No kissing, no petting, just a lot of touching and flirting. And Diane and Drews' boundaries were even tighter, I think. Of the 4 women, the only woman that did anything that gave me pause was Alison. Erika makes me raise my eyebrows, though.

I'd never call a woman a slut, even if she was one. But of those four women, if I was that type of guy, Alison would be the one who would most deserve the lable.

But I guess all of us have different boundaries. To me, she was the only one who actually used her body for the purpose of advancing herself in the game. I know Erika is "kinda" using hers, but I think it's just because she's a kind of a horndog, not to advance herself, although some would disagree.

As for the guys, it's just assumed that ALL of us are horndogs. And people who make that assumption are absolutely correct. So it's kind of overkill to call us male sluts.

I'm not even sure that made any sense----- :D

I completely agree with your argument. There is a double standard, but we perpetuate it. For her part I think that Janelle is playing Will just as much as she is playing him. But some just can't bring themselves to stop calling her a 'whore.' That double standard you mention is alive and well.

You just realized there's a double standard with sex? For us, sex is awesome and our only goal in life, hence one who is successful at sex is dubbed a player by his comrades.

For women, sex should not be what they live for, that's a ho.

Double standards apply for more than just sex though, you see, boys and girls are different...

Women desire sex just as much as men do. We just have to pretend that we don't because we pay such a price if we say we do. THAT is the core of the problem. Men either don't want to accept this truth or they want to punish women for it. Until men accept women as their equals, there will always be this double standard and women will always be labeled "sluts" and "whores."

Double standard is alive and well in lots of things If a man has 4 kids with four moms he so good blah blah blah but a woman has 4 kids by four daddys she a slut a ho whatever unfortunatly though the double standard will never die women will never be able to do stuff that a man can do and not be looked down on
