Should women be held to higher standards than men?

It's 1:00 in the morning, how did you beat me? Were you waiting for it to become 12:01 so you could post? lol

I think not higher standards, but different standards. It's comparing apples and oranges. If a man is dressed a bit blandly or has dirt under his nails I would not consider that strange or "low". Yet with a woman it would seem a bit off.

At the same time women typically can have little to not motivation career wise and this can be considered acceptable whereas it would seem a bit unacceptable in a man. I can't think of any better examples right now...

I think for example, if a woman sleeps with another person it is more offensive than if a man did it. Whereas a man being cheap on a date or towards his wife is less acceptable than a woman expecting others to pay for her etc.

What the bleep is going on here? I thought this first post was Purim shtick - and now we're seriously dignifying it with a this backward response. Sheesh.

I wouldn't necessarily say HIGHER standards, but certainly DIFFERENT ones...

Absolutely not. Why would you ask that?

Moses was held to the highest standard and he was also called the meekest man in the world.

In the redemption price it was 30 shekels for women and 50 shekels for men. Men have to pay a higher price.

It isn't an ego thing either, quite the opposite. It reflects Adams answer to God after the sin.

We can say different does not equal higher, but it's just semantics.

In the end, everyone is judged by the same standards. By the measure of your choosing, the standards are set.

No it's not because it totally depends on the issue. SOMETIMES Men are held to a "higher" standard and sometimes chicks are, but there is no rule across the board...

That's absurd.
Different does not mean that one is overall "higher".

Which makes your previous statement about semantics incorrect.
