    I've heard this question a lot.
    I think that when future historians will think about our period in history, they will think about this question.

    Because the world is full of double standards. Why are women much more likely to get away with rape? There are plenty of double standards for both genders. I'm not saying that it's OK, I'm just saying that it's how things are and will continue to be for at least a few more decades.

    Women aren't more likely to "get away with" rape. Using this as an example is almost like you're describing that as an advantage that women have. NOBODY should get away with rape. Women don't want other women to get away with it.

    Men and women are forced into gender boxes of women = weak and men = strong so people generally refuse to believe that women are capable of rape and that a man could possibly allow it to happen.

    Edit I saw you say you don't think it's okay and I understand. I think you just picked a poor comparison, sorry for my forthright post.

    I was trying to think of a double standard with shock value to help illustrate my point

    I realise this and understand. As I say, I think the comparison isn't quite appropriate but I guess I can't think of a better one off the top of my head.
    Getting away with rape just isn't an advantage for one gender and a disadvantage for another, it's just generally disadvantage all around.

    Yea I personally disagree with this, since you put it this way

    Because traditionally speaking this is what men are meant to do, approach. It's still generally a societal standard, so it's not really gonna be seen as hard work, but more so a social responsibility.

    Whereas with women...it's not really her job to approach so it's gonna look desperate if she does.

    Men also are seen as the sex more focused on sex and not women. So it's weird and still generally unaccepted if she is after it.

    Just sayin, g.

    Certainly historically, but definitely not true these days. For decades women have been liberated, and frankly 'loose' and rampantly promiscuous.

    Gender stereotypes, and let's be honest, females willingness to have the man do all the work, make the initial approach, buy drinks, pay for meals, pay for dates, be masculine, thought right, be funny, chatty, high social status, display a degree of wealth and career standing / education.

    Women just need to look reasonably attractive and stand there, no effort needed.

    Almost no woman has any idea what it's like emotionally, for a man, to approach a hundred women, and get blown off, often real nastily and abusively, before finding someone to date. Women don't need to do that. That's why a guy who has game, and is successful with women, gets respect. Because it's hard.
