So, there was this blog on CNN this week asking “Is Cheating Ever Deserved?”
The short answer was, yes, it is. I agree. I wouldn’t even be referencing this if it was a typical ‘men cheat’ article. I could frankly care less, and I am bored with that. But this was a new twist. Too many times when men cheat, they are blamed and demonized and the women are treated as victims (the only political woman who didn’t let that happen was Hillary Clinton, and may have lots to do with her personality). This was a good point:
“…If people vow when they marry to stay faithful to and respect one another, shouldn’t the vows be of equal importance?….The larger issue is one of equality. If we’re going to point fingers at men behaving badly, we have to take a look at the women’s behavior that may provoke it. Most issues — especially those within a relationship — are rarely ever black and white with a clear-cut victim and oppressor. People cheat for a variety of reasons, very few of which are strictly because they’re horrible human beings.”
Preach! Now, if women could only believe that. They don’t. Too many are comfortable as victims. Thoughts?
