Double standards do no one any good. Life without balance is just that, lopsided, out of sync, breeding corruption as the falsehood of normalcy is created.
We see the lies as they are exposed and the seriousness of the imbalance shows. Too long people have been led to believe what is right for one is not for the other.
When I was 15 my 3rd ‘dad’ told his son (who was 14) he was too old to get whipped with the razor strap. A week later he was pissed about something and wanted to whip me. I firmly told him NO! I am not going to lay down for that! If my step brother is too old, then I am too, for I am one year older! He was furious and proceeded to throw me on the bed and began punching me. My mom came running and yelling and finally he stopped.
This two sided bull crap is something females have been dealing with since time began. Who is it that decided she would be dominated? I call bullshit, always have.
Shortly after the razor strap experience I got my first boyfriend, he was a prince for the first year. He moved in with my ‘parents’ and I and then the beatings began, at least one a week. I fought hard against him, breaking the hold was difficult. Two years this lasted and then I had to actually leave the state for he was trying to kill me, and the police did nothing, my ‘parents’ did nothing.

I am reminded of Lilith, who fled the garden when Adam tried to dominate her … we’ve been living this story ever since. Lies have been told about Lilith as her children over time have been slain, and lies have been told about us.
Infidelity, and being used as sex objects has been the norm for the female, as she is beaten and abused and lied about and tormented and killed.
This original hatred, this egoic bruise that mankind has suffered is the actual cause of the pain of this world. Nothing more than an immature boy who is upset because his ‘rules’ are not obeyed, because his ‘partner’ wishes to be seen as an equal contributor and asset to the whole rather than as a slave.
Women have been battling this behavior since time began. Many strong women have rebelled against this lopsided view forever. And we will continue until the end of time, and beyond.
Little boys must grow up and behave as men if there will ever be peace. Give credit where credit is due and stop trying to rule the hearts of people. Rather, behave in a manner that allows people, women in particular, to wish to be your partner once again.
