Why is it, that when a women sleeps around she is considered a hoe/slut/whore but when a man does the same he is considered a pimp/player/ "the man"? I have heard many sides of this debate but what is yours? Explain your answer

I do agree that men don't put each other down when it comes to sex, but its not only women putting down each other, its men putting down women too!!! Men look down on "loose" women too. Just as they have conservative women they have conservative men
Men don't care that women put men down! That's the point I'm making! Why do women care what men think about them? If women stopped caring about what men thought or said and (stopped putting each other down) there would be no double standard!
dashingscorpio that is not what i am talking about did you even read my comment .. I didn't mention women putting men down at all. Reread my comment. By the way I don't see your point, I think we differ over the definition of double standard ........
You said. "but its not only women putting down each other, its men putting down women too!" That's why it's (double). Most women dislike men who are players but since men don't put them down only (one) gender disapproves. What if women did the same
dashingscorpio, a double standard is "a rule or principle that is unfairly applied in different ways to different people or groups." In this case it has been more unfairly applied to women then men. There is a more unfair stigma to women's sexuality
