This irritates me so much.Posted: May 18, 2009
Everywhere I look, some guy is cheating on his lady. It’s all over tv shows and treated like it’s no big deal. The gossip magazines are all about this Jon and Kate Plus 8 ‘scandal’ and everyone is saying she deserves it.
It just makes me want to barf.
First off, nobody deserves to be treated like that. If there are problems in a relationship, the answer is not to put your dick into someone else without your partner’s knowledge. If you have sexual problems and you NEED to put your dick into someone else, I think it’s the right thing to tell your spouse. You may get a free pass, you may get a divorce, but at least you aren’t being an amoral ass hole.
Second off, is everybody secretly cheating on each other and I didn’t get the memo? I know I’m just working off of the media here but it seems like it’s a plot line in about every tv show or movie or book and it’s always treated like "Well OF COURSE he put his dick into someone he wasn’t supposed to put his dick into… all people with dicks do that!" o_0 I guess it works the other way too but it’s just not that often that the plot line is a woman putting her vagina on a dick she wasn’t supposed to use.
You know, I really don’t believe monogamy is for everybody but I do think that honesty is for everybody. If you don’t want to be monogamous that’s just fine but you’d better make sure your partner feels the same way. I would think this is one of those major things that a couple has to agree on and if non-monogamists can just take their heads out of their asses and be honest about it, a lot less people would get hurt.
Although, according to tv, no one gets hurt by being cheated on. They just gasp and then say "I want a divorce" and have a good life about 2 seconds later.
