You can’t even get on a plane anymore without some lecherous wannabe-BuzzFeed reporter chronicling your every move for millions of strangers around the globe. This is the world we live in.

It's become pretty obvious that society holds women to a higher standard than men.But trying to be perfect is overrated and sometimes…we do something super naughty that archaic authority figures would hate: We lie our asses off to spare their feelings.
