CNN: Shame on You!

Calling all women! This just in on CNN News: The key to maintaining a long-term relationship is letting your man (and even encouraging your man) to cheat! What?! Holly Hill, introduced as a “former mistress,” recently wrote a memoir entitled “Sugarbabe” that details her yearlong adventure as a mistress for rich men. According to Hill, “Men are hard-wired to betray women on the long-term.” If women do not succumb to every sexual whim of their men, then it is “shortsighted and cruel” to not let your man relieve his urges with other women according to Hill. Men are biologically destined to cheat. Ali Wentworth, CNN correspondent, explained that: “Men and women… have different needs… Men, really biologically and physically… their urge is to spread their seed throughout the land.”

Feminists long ago challenged such overly vague, quasi-scientific facts that supposedly justify patriarchal dominance in society. As if anything could be more offensive, there is only a single mention about women’s sexual appetite throughout the entire article and corresponding interview. Bethenny Frankel, Bravo reality TV star, argued briefly that “A lot of women have a big sexual appetite.” Great, we are now depending upon reality TV stars to defend the radical notion of female sexuality. CNN- Shame on you! I trusted you…So much for being the “worldwide leader in news…”
