This Week’s Fair Game Topic: Double Standards

Ladies and gents! Let’s talk Double Standards. As much as we want men and women to be equal, we have to acknowledge that sometimes we just are not. Double standards go both ways, sometimes in the woman’s favor and sometimes in the man’s favor.

There is the infamous double standard, when a man with a lot of ladies is a “player” and seen as a cool guy, and on the flip side a woman with various men is umm… viewed as not so cool. Can double standards ever shift? What double standards do we see shifting right now in 2015? What double standard do you wish would just disappear? If you’re a woman or a man and there is a double standard that you’re glad exists, let us know!

This Week’s Fair Game Topic: Role Models

Celebrities are everywhere you look these days! You can find them on the cover of a magazine, all over the Internet and even on your personal social media accounts. Does the over exposure of celebrities make us feel like we know them personally? Do we admire them so much that we want to be like them? Are these images even something to aspire to? More importantly, is it assumed that when you are a celebrity, being a role model comes with the territory?

This week on Fair Game, VickyRo, Pierrea Javon and NellyP explore the topic of celebrities being role models.

When you decide to own being a role model it can become a huge responsibility. It opens up your actions and choices to extreme criticism by random outsiders. So who really is a good role model? Who is really ready to take that on? Can anything be done to separate the two? And let’s not forget to acknowledge that some people still have role models that they personally know.
