I have been thinking about what we talked about in class the other day about double standards for women. Ms. King pointed out that even today society still wants women to have a pure image. Although people don’t necessarily think that all women still need to be virgins before wed, this “pure” image is still expected but in a different way. Society still expects women to be more innocent than men. I’ll again use the example that I used in class the other day. When Miley and the “blurred lines” guy performed together, Miley got all the criticism. A guy can always do what ever he wants on stage and is glorified for his originality and braveness. Whenever a woman does half the things that a man is acclaimed for, she gets the reputation of being promiscuous and too explicit. There seems to always be a line for women but not for men. I’m not supporting Miley’s naked “Wrecking Ball” video, but I do think she deserves the same response a man would receive. When the Red Hot Chili Peppers came on stage naked and only with socks on that became their iconic image that everyone loved. They didn’t receive nearly as much criticism as Miley has and that was more than a decade ago. Sorry for contributing to the “Miley obsession,” but it did seem like a good example for a double standard that’s still in our society. Again, I don’t think that everyone should flaunt his or her sexuality on every television show and magazine cover, but I do think that men and women deserve the same expectations and boundaries.
