As one wise sage put it, a key which opens every lock is very valuable while a lock which can be opened by every key is worthless. Once it’s understood that men and women are different, double standards apply.

Well for one thing, this: “I know I’ve banged a lot of chicks, but I’m definitely marrying a virgin.” seems almost hypocritical. You sleep around but you want to marry a virgin. Yeah it’s fine to have standards, but I can never understand this particular one. I guess morally speaking, it sounds hypocritical (to me promiscuity is wrong regardless of gender). Now I understand if you want to marry someone who’s a virgin or a woman with a low partner count to ensure that their likelihood of loyalty is high, but then what about the guy in question who “banged alot of chicks”, what about his loyalty potential? I think I went off topic here lol….but anyway.

Also, I admit, I’d side-eye any fat guy who said that fat woman are ugly…I would think that other woman would find him ugly as well.

But in the end, I see what you’re saying.

I think that with the male standards you provided, there’s so much baggage in regards to women’s issues and history. From beauty and the strict standards of beauty that women face to the issue of careers to sex. Any idea or preference that seems to conflict with these things, ESPECIALLY coming from a man, will surely be met with disaproval.

The notion that there is a double standard is rooted entirely in the assumption that men and women should be the same. When you point this out to women, and contrast it with the ideal of equality between the sexes (as I do when I get accused of having double standards), they are usually fairly receptive to the idea – as long as you don’t try to shove it down their throat.

My typical conversational style tends more towards “shock and awe.”

With receptive girls whom I genuinely care about convincing, you are correct that it is pretty easy to offer a few counter-examples and reason them out of their blatantly false blank slatism.
