Me, I don't see all the brouhaha. I think this sordid affair should be a private matter between a man and his wife. And the rest of the world should just butt out. Don't tell me you purchased Tiger Woods endorsed products because he's a committed family man. Bullshit seriously.
But obviously not everyone's ready to let go. Even our radio deejays have jumped on the wagon with daily morning discussions on his racy adultery - and his seemingly endless line of buxom mistresses.
Deejay : So what do you think about adulterous men?
Woman : Well at least it's other women.
Deejat : You'd prefer he sleep with women?
Woman : Imagine if he'd slept with men instead! Wouldn't that be worse?
The tic at the edge of my mouth started twitching. You can imagine how furious I was to hear that.
And more than a little puzzled.
Wonder whether she knows I'm sleeping around!
Better an adulterer than a homosexual?
Shouldn't it be the other way around? For a woman, isn't it worse to be cheated on by her husband with another woman? Wouldn't she be more pissed if he was stepping out with another woman? Wouldn't that mean something was seriously wrong that he'd have to find solace in another? As all women do, she'd probably start soul-searching with a bucket of rocky road and end up questioning her feminity. Was she not sweet enough? Was she not clever enough? Were her boobs not big enough?
Husband : I'm cheating on you with another woman.
Wife : Fuck! What the hell does she have that I don't!
But if he had bonked another man... she'd probably just shrug heedlessly. Eh, the husband's gay. What can she do about it after all? Not that it's much consolation but at least the problem's clearly on his side.
Husband : I'm cheating on you with another man.
Wife : So it wasn't me! You're gay. No wonder!
So what do you think?
