    Why are (some) men so defensive of what they do, as if it's only a "mans thing" e.g. sleeping around, that they can do it but women shouldn't. I really can't understand, do they feel threatened by women who can do just as much as them, and just as well? Do they feel the need to let us know they're calling the shots, even when they're nothing to us?

    If there are any men on here who hold double standards, why?

    p.s. This is not a feminist "men are *******s post", i'm just curious.

    You will actually find that a lot of men don't believe that women shouldn't be around to sleep around. BTW this double standard is reinforced by women just as much as men if not more. I know a lot of girls that gossip and call other girls sluts and *****es etc. And how does that example mean that men are threatened that women can do just as much if not more

    Yeah I don't know why men are 'players' and girls are '****s'. Most of the time they are the same and just sleeping around because their heart got broken by the one who got away..

    The lock and key analogy:
    A Key that opens many locks is very useful
    A lock that is opened by many keys is nigh on useless

    The overlying point here is that guys have a unique LAD banter, while women love to gossip and take things too seriously.

    That is just a **** thing to say.

    A girl can sleep around if she wants, it's her choice. She shouldn't be discriminated against for liking a bangin'

    Society is just messed up like that. I don't agree with it. It's pretty stupid when a guy sleeps around he is a "player" but when a girl sleeps around she is a ****. How does that make sense

    It's not fair that guys can shag every girl in a 10 mile radius of his penis but a girl cannot have it with one or two guys. I do not advocate it as such but neither am I strictly against it.

    If a man can sleep around , so can a woman.

    I agree.
    I didn't expect anyone to actually pay any attention to a humorous analogy (courtesy of sickipedia, I believe)
    Honestly, I think it's because men hold a much less mature attitude towards sex and long-term commitments than women. Therefore, when you a girl who deviates from that stereotype...
    Similarly, if in the middle of some LAD banter you declare that you only have sex during meaningful relationships, you will be mocked. Hard.

    I don't make the rules - I don't even like them but c'est la vie.

    Personally, I stay away from these conversations altogether when I can. You'll never hear me declare someone a player or **** in any meaningful/serious conversation.

    It makes perfect sense because being a player is hard, being a **** is easy. To be a player you have to be good looking, clever, funny, kind with a nice car and good job, to be a **** you just need to be there! Thats why you get fat ugly ****s but have you ever seen a fat ugly player?

    Some people find fat people attractive. Being ugly is subjective.
    I don't know any players nor have I met any players.
    On the other hand I remember this one **** in high school and she was pretty hot.

    it's because girls themselves disapprove of sleeping around

    the guys are all like "nice going man! you got laid" but the girls are like "omg you didn't even know that guy, you whore!"
