Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandard: The town turns against Bart to such an extreme degree that Moe ''[[UpToEleven vilifies Homer for not using a condom to prevent Bart's conception]]'', and when Homer stands up for Bart the crowd turns on him until he takes their side. However, none make a similar accusation regarding Marge not taking the pill and when ''she'' confronts the mob, none attack her [[ShamingTheMob and she single-handedly convinces them to stand down]]. Some see this as a gender-based DoubleStandard, adding to the sour reception of the episode since Marge is spared vilification from doing the same things that Homer gets attacked for.
** Not helping the situation is the fact that there is precedent of the writers displaying [[DoubleStandard double standards]]. In the early episodes when the RunningGag of [[AbusiveParents Homer strangling Bart for misbehaving]] was established, when the idea of Homer also strangling Lisa when she misbehaved came up, it was strongly opposed.
