Female infidelity: It’s different from the guys – The Chart – CNN.com Blogs. What… is.. that smell? Oh, it’s patriarchal bullshit, duh.

In a committed relationship nothing hurts more, or is harder to recover from, than infidelity, and this is even truer when it’s the female partner who’s been doing the cheating.  In recent years I’ve noticed a precipitous rise in the number of men who have been betrayed by adultery, and while there’s an overall consensus among professionals that female infidelity is on the rise, the trend doesn’t garner nearly as much attention as male infidelity  That’s surprising, because female infidelity is often much more damaging to a marriage. Don’t get me wrong: Male cheating is definitely harmful. But when a woman fools around, it’s often the death knell to a couple’s relationship.

give me a fucking break. Yes, let’s perpetuate double standards that say when women do what men have been doing forever it’s worse… because it’s not what you’re used to. Cheating is Cheating and it hurts people equally though it may manifest or play out in different ways. what a wanker!

**update***

i saw this article in response to this wanker’s sexist bs, and it’s awesome – per usual at feministe:

And as an actual woman myself, I can tell you that there’s, like, a really cute and romantic cobblestone pathway between the heart and the vagina, and it’s basically physically impossible for a woman to let you try to make a baby with her unless her heart engorges her clitoris with love. LOVE. Otherwise that shit just locks up like a vise and not even in the fun way. So yeah, Ian Kerner, totally speaking to my own personal experiences here.
