Letter to the Editor in response to 'Open your eyes, he's cheating on you.'

By Donald Remy

This is a response to the article in The Falcon Times printed in the Feb. 2 issue that suggested all men cheat.

In this world, no one is perfect. Men are no exception to the rule.

On a daily basis we display our imperfections, and depending on our ascension into the public eye our imperfections become magnified for all to see i.e. Tiger Woods, and South Carolina Gov. Mark Stanford.

The author of the Feb. 2 column, Danyelle Carter, failed to explain if men are more prone to cheating or if women are immune to such acts of infidelity.

The point of the previous article was that all men cheat and that all men can’t help but to cheat.

It seemed like the author was implying that men naturally have traits ingrained in them to be unfaithful to their significant other.

In the second paragraph Carter says, “No, there is no evidence to support my theory with numerical data,” and continues with, “my evidence is simply the cries from women and gloating of men when asked about their relationships.”

Really?

How many men did you speak to? Was every man you encountered a gloating cheater? How many women cried on your shoulder? Are you saying that all the women you know are crying about their past and present relationships? Are you saying that not one of these men have been a victim of infidelity? I have a lot of questions because they were brought up and left unanswered.

I know plenty of women who are unfaithful just as much, if not more, than men.   Obviously, men and women are imperfect and we both fall prey to temptation time and time again.

There are several different Web sites or statistics that claim to point out who cheats more, but none seem to be in agreement. The surveys are imperfect just like humans.

When women say men are “dogs” I say that dogs come in two genders, male and female. If I’m a dog, because I am a male, then what does that make you?
