I saw this article in the latest issue of Esquire and found the author's POV sort of interesting but also kind of dickish. Citing the public comeuppances of "Tiger Woods, Larry Craig, Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Gary Hart, Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer, and all the rest," including Petraeus, his thesis seems to be that we should stop punishing powerful men for having sex, even adulterous sex. Further, he says, social condemnation of extramarital affairs hurts women not via the infidelity but because "we have indentured our wives in the role of prison guard, in which she is expected to condemn the person she supposedly loves for the vitality that he is slowly killing inside himself." Not ever having been in the marital prison guard role, I don't have much of a dog in this fight, but the article is more than a little distasteful to me with a soupçon of MRA. What do you think?
