Piece Of Cake

Lately something I’ve been thinking a lot about how often times in life we want what we can’t have. I feel that many individuals “want to save their cake and eat it too” to barrow the colloquialism. It hit me when I was on a crowded bus and a middle aged man stood up so a woman could sit. The woman was replied “no, I’ll stand.” Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve been brain washed by “liberal Seattle.” However, this got me thinking about how people would say “women need to be treated right” yet at the same time they refuse to let be treated “good.” I’m sure the man wasn’t trying to be sexist nor the woman a feminist but I find it interesting how our society seems to have many double standards. The trick is to sort through these standards and create our own. Together we can change society.
