Douuble Standards...

We all use them to our benefit when we can. We publicly denounce them but in private matters they're our friend. We justify them away as long we are not their victim. Interestingly enough I have and surely will again at some point be guilty of using a double standard to benefit myself. I had a interesting discussion on this topic today. Its crazy how it usually takes somebody else to point it out to us when we do it because we become so accustom to doing it. Double standards: a rule or principle that is unfairly applied in different ways to different people or groups. The key word is unfairly. We all say we want equality but as long as certain principles don't apply the same for certain people or groups equality is merely a thought. This can be applied in any social setting you can think of and if one party is given privelage over another it doesn't normally go over well. How can something so elementary be so complex? How can two parties do the same thing but for one its acceptable for the other its terrible? Sounds crazy huh, always remember everything we do in life is a choice or a decision you have an option as whether you want to allow double standards to exist no use in complaining about them if we choose to allow them...
