Double Standard.....

I would like to know what you people think about the term "Double Standard"?? Does it really exist? The dictionary states the meaning to be:

1. any code or set of principles containing different provisions for one group of people than for another, esp. an unwritten code of sexual behavior permitting men more freedom than women.

Have any of you had any experience with this term?? Who was the person that decided what was good for men wasn't necessarily good for woman?? I'm really curious on this. I'm guessing a man, considering its the male that gets more freedom than the female. Also, where did "Whats good for the goose is good for the gander" come from?? And, if the above rule applies, that statement should really be..."What's good for the goose isn't necessarily good for the gander. It depends entirely on the situation and the temper of the goose." Am I correct?
