Random Question of the Day:

After watching a movie (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) with my friend, we got into a little battle of the sexes debate. She basically said that the cheating girlfriend (who had been cheating for a year before she ended the relationship), didn't do anything wrong "other than cheating." WTF? My argument was that if it were a guy, he would have been chewed out regardless of how likable he was.

Do you think it's more acceptable for women to cheat than it is for men?



  1. I'd have to say that neither one is OKAY but I suppose the reason why it may seem more acceptable for women to cheat is because it is believed that when women cheat, it's an emotional decision rather than just some random impulse or whim. Being someone that has cheatED and been cheated ON, I can say that when I did, it was more symptomatic of my feelings towards the relationship (things weren't going well, etc.) as opposed to most (not all) guys I know that will cheat just for the hell of it.

  2. Not at all! I haven't seen the movie, but I don't believe that cheating is right when anyone does it, man or woman. What I can say is that a lot of times when a woman cheats, she actually has some kind of reason to cheat and it is something that is not's a ratinale decision. Now does that make it right? NO...hell, it may make it worst, depends on how you look at it. Most of the cases (that I know of) where men have cheated, it was just because he was feelin frisky and had the opportunity to get something new for the moment. Most men who cheat on their women and get caught...only stopped because they got caught! They would very well continue to have two relationships; one of substance with their girlfriend, and one of sex with their "other friend".
