In this article, the writer notes that gender equality in the United States has achieved tremendous strides, particularly since the middle of the last century. However, the writer discusses that the gender-based double moral standard for sexual conduct is one specific component of sexual inequality that remains a fixture, even in the 21st century, throughout most of American society. The writer argues that the gender-based sexual double standard is logically indefensible on any level. The writer concludes that it persists throughout most of American culture, and sadly, its manifestations in the Western World are infinitely more benign than the cruelty it inspires elsewhere.
