The laconic defines "Double Standard" as "Sexist tropes". You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means*.

Hey listen. I'd just like to thank whoever made the list of tropes involving cases of sexism against men. It really just made me realize that a character from a television show (Lucas or "Dark Oak" from Sonic X) that I thought had a near impossible psyche to probe was just an amalgamation of different anti-male stereotypes.

To be direct, what I thought was depth was really just prejudice. It actually confirmed to me (when I tried thinking of ways to portray him in fanfiction) why his character was so difficult to execute without him remaining a complete monster or overly whiny (due to guilt).

I know the above sounds sarcastic, but, well, him being a walking stereotype in the series really does explain why putting depth to his character (outside of the context of a very hard to redeem villain) had proven so difficult.

Please, if anyone here has any counter arguments, I would be happy to discuss them.
