Real ass dude of the week
Yes. Most of this "double standard" people complain about is due to this reason: women get pregnant and have to take care of the baby, also, nobody can deny the baby it's HER baby.The basic underlying reason for this double standard:
T.I. expects that if his daughter has sex and a pregnancy results, he and her family will be on the hook for 100% of the expenses and the effort of raising the baby, because the boy will vanish.
T.I. expects if his son has sex and a pregnancy results, his boy will take plenty of breeze on the girl and at worse T.I. will have to pay child support if the girl successfully sues for it. But the family won’t have fuck all to do with this baby.
You have to examine where these assumptions are coming from.
One's woke, one's broke, go figure.An intriguing comment on the T.I. affair from a Black Hebrew Israelite. He's not wrong.

I agree, generally, although from a PR standpoint I suspect it would have been smarter to not directly address it and then leave it a couple months to go on a breakfast show or some other totally controllable appearance where they wouldn't ask hard questions with his quite fetching daughter and make it clear that he actually was a pretty chill guy.Assuming that this isn’t just saving face, good for him for owning up and listening his daughter. I can fairly easily buy that the guy just had basically foot in mouth moment, even if it was absolutely baffling one. Seriously he didn’t think that broadcasting very very private medical thing wouldn’t be sensitive? And that anything to do with sexual privacy of someone under your care isn’t a great topic for embellishments or exaggerations? That really made him sound like a total creap or at least an idiot. Not a great move and I think he deserved the backlash but he seems to have been trying to fix the mess. People do incredibly dumb jokes once in while and sounds like he and his family had pretty reasonable reaction to him saying something really really stupid.
How many times do you think dad tried to skip out but couldn't because looking at the kid was like looking in a mirror?Yes. Most of this "double standard" people complain about is due to this reason: women get pregnant and have to take care of the baby, also, nobody can deny the baby it's HER baby.
But, with a man, in older times where this "standard" was born, there was no way to prove the baby was HIS.
The reason virginity and abstinence in women was praised was based on how it was impossible to prove if a man was actually the father of the baby his wife it's expecting. If you married some floozy, there was no way to prove you were carrying another man's child. You could only trust in your wife's virtue and good upbringing. This wasn't applied to men because 1. they can deny it and 2. they could just pay some sort of 'child support' and move on with their lives. They wouldn't force their wives to raise another woman's child as there was not a real reason to separate a woman from her baby. If the mother was dead, the baby was often raised in another household, not with the family.
