Double Standard of Morality
Double standard of morality gives the impression of men being superior to women. In as much as we
would like to practice gender equality, the rules for human conduct and human appropriateness are not
alike for both sexes as practiced in most areas in the Philippines.
a. Boys and men are permitted to stay out more and up to a later time than the girls and women.
b. Women are expected to remain virginal until they marry, while it is generally acceptable for men
to have sexual experience before marriage.
c. Women are socially judged and legally penalized for adultery and for having children out of
wedlock.
d. Men who stay at home to do household chores instead of having jobs to earn money for the
family are considered by some as under de saya.
VIRGIN
refers to a person who has not had sexual interaction
VIRGINITY
is the quality or state of being chaste
Staying virgin until marriage keeps you…
SOCIALLY - free to develop appropriate relationship with others
EMOTIONALLY - free from exploitation by others
- free from guilt, doubt, disappointment, and loss of reputation
PHYSICALLY - free from pregnancy & venereal diseases
- free from having to choose a hurry- up wedding and an illegitimate child
