Re: Double standard on being single Lies. The standard is the girl is "just saving it" until she's 18. If she's still a virgin by 22, then she's weird and crazy and probably unmarriageable unless she's Mormon. I hate the feminist double-standard. Feminism is about free choice for women. If you choose to be a lawyer, you're a shining pillar of feminine power. If you choose to take care of the home and make cakes all day, you're a failure and an embarrassment to women everywhere. Men who smoke are cool and sexy, but women who smoke are disgusting whores. I don't get it.
