Cheaterville: A Web Site for Adultery
Someone told me about this web site called "Cheaterville," and I figured I'd post a link. I don't know much about it, so I'm not commenting one way or the other.
Except for this: Last week I linked to a post written by this guy who not only knocks the romance genre, but also feels as though he's somehow above it. I'm not mentioning his name in this post. I don't want to give him that kind of attention again. But check out the post, and below is a quote from his post.
After my last post about, not only the dreadful writing associated with romance novels, but the often deadly message they bring glorifying everything from adultery to incest,
Once again, I find it interesting to read something like this, especially when most romance novelists and readers stay away from books with adultery.
In any event, check out "Cheaterville." And if you know someone who is cheating on his or her spouse/partner, you might want to examine it even further.
Someone once asked me if gay couples consider it cheating if they've been together for a long time and they aren't legally married. I had to laugh, as if being legally married is where the line is drawn for cheating. I replied with the question: Do straight couples who aren't married and consider themselves in a monogamous relationship consider it cheating when one of them has an affair? What about engaged straight couples?
Unless there is some kind of an open relationship with an agreement where everyone is happy, it works just the same way for gays as it does straights. The sad fact is that people who cheat were wired that way from birth. Most go to their graves this way. I have no problem with open relationships and anything you want as long as both parties in the relationship agree to it. But I have very little tolerance for cheaters and sneaks.
