The University of Illinois at Chicago recently completed a study on sexual double standards. The study revealed that most college students judge males and females by the same rules when it comes to casual sex. The study found only 12% of students lose respect for women (but not men) if they have frequent casual sex. Meanwhile, 13% of students judge men more harshly than women.
What is truly revealing about this study however is the persistent feminist hypocrisy in US academia. The researchers, professor Barbara Risman & Rachel Allison expressed contempt for those students judging women more harshly when they act promiscuous. However when explaining why 13% of students felt men should be judged more harshly for promiscuity, Barbara Risman stated “Women who hold to this reverse double standard are invoking a kind of gender justice, They are critical of men who treat women badly and they do not accept a ‘boys will be boys’ view of male sexuality.”
This is classic feminism. If a man does the exact same thing as a woman a different set of rules apply.
She then tried to justify her female chauvinism by explaining that many fraternities have an adversarial double standard against female promiscuity. She claimed that Greek brothers are at the top of campus social stratification and end up holding a great deal of social power on campus. Since sorority women living in Greek housing were the most likely group to judge male promiscuity harshly while accepting female promiscuity Risman claimed the women were challenging the "boys will be boys mentality"
Risman is an obvious sexist bullshitter (in other words, she's a feminist). Claiming its acceptable to judge males more harshly than females is narrow minded Additionally, most students do NOT look up to fraternity brothers. The term "frat boy" is often used in a derogatory manner. They have little social power on campus. Finally sorority girls have a reputation as self centered princesses who treat men & even other women poorly. Their attitudes are no different than fraternity brothers.
The female chauvinist culture in American academia mirrors traditional feminist hypocrisy concerning sex. Feminist claim women have a right to engage in frequent sexual encounters. These women are said to be exploring their sexuality. Anyone calling them sluts is labeled a misogynist. However if a man does the exact same thing, these women's groups promote their arrogant female chauvinist double standard by labeling him a womanizer, player or dog.
The conclusions of the University of Illinois researchers is another example of the lack of objectivity that persists throughout American academia as a result of feminism.
