  Such is not the path to maturing.  You yourself just recently said that
  arguments from authority were not valid.  The authority of "others" is
  just as invalid.  This is not about what other people think, but about
  what _you_ understand.  You can always find someone who are equally or
  more immature than yourself.  Do you really want to relegate your own
  personal development to the existence of less evolved people?  If you
  had at least asked if there were others who thought there were no double
  standards, you could perhaps have had a point, but since you are so
  immature, that is precisely what you do _not_ do.  So, try again.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
