I have a new bloggie friend, whom I was hooked up with via the Book Swap recently. Kittie Flyn is her name. Pay her a visit. You won't be disappointed.
Her post today has related to a lot of what has been on my mind lately.
Weiner (really?......too easy)
We could go on and on. Men in power who cheat.
Countless books have been written on the difference between men and women. Men are more visually wired. Women, more emotional. You know the drill. I'm pretty sure we all read Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.
So, I'm intrigued with - besides the fundamental differences in our creation - what makes men do it? Have we, as a society, encouraged this behavior? Think back to Clinton's behavior and where he is today. Hell, JFK was (and is) adored by women of multiple generations. Are we too quick to forgive?
I honestly believe that the male ego is simply too infuenced by power and accessibility. I think that most men........who are put in a position with such prestige.......would end up cheating. I do. Especially with the resources they have at their disposal to hide their indiscretions. I am quite certain that - given the politicians and celebrities that have been uncovered - there are countless more who have not been.
***What are your thoughts? Do all men of power cheat? Why or why not?
