Verified by Psychology Today
Young men abuse alcohol far more than young women. Young white men abuse alcohol far more than any other demographic. But nobody is going to disparage young white males from binge drinking, ruining their health and increasing their risky behavior because nobody gets a thrill shaming young white men. The target of shaming is almost always the same, young women. In this instance, young women are being shamed because they include their alcohol intake in their total daily calorie plan, shame shame.
If young women would only join a nunnery and wear coveralls then society would be perfect. Young white men, they can do whatever they want: Drop out of school, abuse substances, kill themselves with daring acts, it's all good because we'll gladly look the other way.
