Do you think there are a lot of double standards between men and women when it comes to scandals?
For the most part, yes. Let’s say that a squeaky clean female child star is involved in a sex tape scandal. The public would be in an uproar. “What a terrible role model for my child!” She would probably be fired. It would be a publicist’s nightmare. It’s probably difficult to see the All-American girl in the same light after a scandal.
So if a young male star was in the same situation, the public probably wouldn’t bat an eye. We expect men, celebrities and regular guys, to have escapades. Hardly anyone has a problem with it.
Why don’t we hold men to the same standard as women? Why are women either viewed as wholesome or whores? There’s not much of a middle ground.
I don’t have the answers today. We probably won’t have answers tomorrow. It will definitely be a topic for discussion.
