Look. He's lonely and here's a good-looking lady throwing herself at him.

What was he supposed to do?

>> "The man's off in a foreign land and he's lonely and here's a good looking lady throwing herself at him. I mean, he's a man," Robertson said in an interview.

He continued describing Paula Broadwell:

"She is an extremely good looking woman. She is a marathon runner. She runs Iron Man triathlons. So she's out running with him and writing a biography."

"I think the term is 'propinquity.'"<<

Yes, I'm being sarcastic. This story actually almost made me spit up my coffee this morning.

32. reality, women have affairs almost as much as men. both minority groups. men wired for it. women?

what about the women? are they just wired for it? cause men sure do not like or accept that idea. but, women are suppose to accept men are just wired.

one contradiction, never answered.

second.

men are wired.

yet, only a small minority cheat. and almost all those people whose parents cheated. but, only a minority.

if men are wired, why do the vast majority not cheat. they are men, wired, and dont cheat.

it is all around bullshit that men (even men not cheating) embrace cause it feeds the all powerful, every present, godlike awesome male sexuality. feels good for a man. to see his sexuality just so damn incredible. even if they do not cheat.

65. I agree, seen your references elsewhere, but have slight reservations

I do believe the majority of people do maintain their vows, but I'm always leery of self-reported percentage studies for "illicit" behaviors. As I've posted before, there has been and continues to be a double standard between men and women that makes it somewhat more difficult for women to admit to infidelity.

People do lie, and when they have (or feel they have) more to lose, they are more likely to lie. My guess is that percentages of women who have cheated is probably about the same as men and both are likely in the 25% area. We'll never really know because many people are in total denial that what they did was actually cheating, and some will just never tell the truth.

It also isn't clear from the studies if "cheating" is strictly breaking your personal vows, or if it includes being the "other woman" or "other man". Also, is it "cheating" if you're in an open/swinger relationship?

I actually don't think it matters what percentages are. What really matters are the expectations and responsibilities that partners agree on and how those understandings relate into trust and respect for each other. I've been in and witnessed some truly horrible relationships that didn't have fidelity issues and known "cheaters" that had strong relationships. It is a much more complicated world and people vary much more than we generally admit to ourselves.

68. there are actually a couple interesting studies on that also. i read a year or two ago....

and i am not gonna go hunting them. not an easy thing for me to do. but, i found it interesting and made sense. that is why they say women are above 16% and men are 21%.

they can get a consistent number on that for men. it is much easier for them to say that, ya they cheated, or not. not so easy for women. this has been found to be one area where women lie. and lie often, lol. all about the lying. and the couple of last studies i read on this does put women about even with men, and one said it is probably higher for women than men. but it is also the reason you state. a man is a stud for the fuck and a woman is a slut for the fuck. meh...

and really, i do not much care about all this. my point, and why i am continually putting this out. i too believed it was much higher. years of living and listening to men be outraged at the accusation of a cheater, the label, their pride in being faithful to wife, their wanting to be heard, their hurt of being thought otherwise, gave me pause. and i actually did research on it.

when it behooves a man, he wants to be all about the "think with his dick". when that stroke of the ego is not needed then you hear men proudly and stridently claim, they do not cheat, would not cheat, no interest in cheating.

i thought that should be honored. and thru research, i found that what i was hearing from men was more correct than not.

so the least we can do is not create a more worse of who we are, than what we actually are.

53. I'm talking too of what the traditionalists will say

Right wingers or conservatives. I don't agree with double standards, but the right wing will tell you happily all about them. Women are not "hard wired" to do things like cheat. In fact we are the ones who make the home and have the babies and that's why we prefer older and stable men (according to this double standard rule) while men want to do as many women as possible to "spread their seed" or such other BS. Which makes it a mystery why they aren't for polygamy. But leave it to conservatives not to make sense.

So that is why a conservative is the one feeling sorry for poor General P. He's hard wired to want other women, what can the poor guy do? Of course he overlooked that she was hard wired to stay home tending to her children, but conservatives overlook that or just rule that particular woman evil.

56. Honestly, most of these affairs aren't even about physical pleasure ...

much less "spreading their seed".

They are about the affirmation of being wanted by someone other than their long-suffering spouse. It is the ego rush and not the sexual rush that is the main reason most people cheat.

And since most people who rise to high-level positions like generals and politicians tend to be narcissists, it should come as no surprise that this happens as often as it does.

Procreation is man's strongest instinct after survival. Beating a woman is learned behavior. Don't think for a second that I'm giving the general a pass on this issue. I've been with my girl faithfully for 19 years, and I'm in a nationally touring rock band. My point was simply that, yes, we are ABSOLUTELY capable of thinking with our johnson's. And, in my opinion, apt to.

No, I don't find it easy to accept. These are willing choices and I refuse to blame biology on anything more than the urge. No matter how powerful our hormones, it is a willing and conscious choice over which we DO have control--both males and females. To suggest otherwise would suggest the kind of pathology that induces sexual predation toward others.

62. Exactly. It's a decision you make.

You make the decision that cheating is not an option, and then follow through. Not hard, IMO. If you cheat, it's a choice you were WILLING to go with, so you must be prepared to accept the consequences, the end. And agree 100% with your last sentence.

I kind of equate it with the decision I made not to spank my kids. I have friends who say things like, "well, I wasn't going to spank my kids but sometimes I just get so mad I can't help myself!" WTF? I made the decision NOT TO spank, ever, and you know what? Once you decide it's not an option, it's pretty easy not to spank. To say otherwise means you excuse those people who beat and abuse their kids because they were 'just so angry and full of rage' they couldn't help themselves.

14. As I said in another thread, men have been blaming women for their infidelities,

weaknesses and transgressions since Adam took a bite of that apple. And after admitting that they mainly think with their little head, many of them believe that women are too hormonal to make good decisions. Go figure!

16. He's such a Christian!

They've been blaming women since their religion began.

24. I don't know...

As for me, I am more towards the point that if he is doing his job well, I am willing to look at this as a personal matter.

It doesn't excuse what he has done, but that is on him and his family.

The only ones I take exceptions with in that regards are those that are hypocritical about it like Newt who went after Clinton for his personal indiscretions. Otherwise, I could care less, and just look at how well they perform in the job that they have.

I will consider such an impropriety as their own mistake and personal failing apart from the job that they are doing. I am willing to give them their privacy and that is about all I am going to say about that.

27. If it's only infidelity

I'm with ya, but it appears to be quite a bit more than merely cheating.

30. Then I'd have a problem

If it involves his job and deals with National Security Information that gets leaked.

33. I think it does.

Apparently the FBI found a BUNCH of documents at Broadwells home that she should not have.
And this scandal is growing by the second.
Who knows how deep this rabbit hole goes.

51. Perhaps

I think there is far more going on here than meets the eye.
There may well be some serious charges brought against some BIG players in the near future.
And who knows how many will "suicide" themselves before it's all over.

37. i do not have a problem with others business until it is about denigrating women. i do not have an

issue, until i am told it is a mans hard wiring. or when someone argues it hurts no one. otherwise, i dont give a shit and it is not a news story.

and i do have a problem with it, when it outs behavior that effects the job.

49. I agree...

I still say he went in to that on his own and it is no one's fault but his own. I tend to think it is still a private matter. If other things come out after this, well, then I might care about that...

But for now, that is how I feel about it.

67. Women have affairs too

Let's not make this just a male thing...Women do this too.

I just recently saw on Craigslist an ad by a woman looking for a "friend with benefits" in order to cheat on her husband.

In fact this UK study showed that not only do women cheat nearly as much as men, but women are far better at lying about it. The study even shows an alarming percentage of men are actually unknowingly raising a child that is not biologically theirs!

77. I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Pat Robertson has his "eyes":

She is an extremely good looking woman. She is a marathon runner. She runs Iron Man triathlons. So she's out running with him and writing a biography

But for my "eyes," it's:



hubba-hubba!
