There is a lot of focus on the asshole men in these situations. However, my curiosity always lands on the women. In Wienergate it appears these women were just play things that didn’t have much attachment to him either. However, they were women who saw fit to ignore the fact that he was married. They were women willing to violate another woman’s life and family. They were women who were careless and thoughtless AND even as I write that I remind myself I don’t really know. I don’t really know what this man told them about his marriage and his wife.
I guess what I’m saying is simple. As women let’s be gentle, and careful with each other. Let’s take the time to check facts, know the deal, go to drinks, and have the hard conversations with one another. Let’s get real and be loving. There really is no shortage of men and no man is worth that kind of hurt and humiliation.
