I’m not sure if you’ve heard this story or not. I think I’m the only one I know who doesn’t find it funny. It’s the four women who used super glue to glue a man’s genitals. This story isn’t even very new. It happened back on August 3 but it’s been on blogs lately and it’s been on Dr. Phil and ABC News just last week.
I’ll agree that this *sounds* funny. I’m not sure why I didn’t laugh nor did I think the man deserved this. First of all, the ringleader in this whole thing, Therese Ziemann, was/is also married. So let me get this straight. You’re cheating on your husband with a man who is also married but you get mad that he’s got more than one of you on the string? What if this were reversed and a group of men did this to a woman? I can hear it all now.
I think this is about revenge and I think it’s a double standard. Why is it that men get blamed all the time for cheating? It seems like everyone always blames the men but come on, face it, they are cheating with women who are often married also so why is it just the man’s “fault?” Don’t get me wrong, I’m not sticking up for anyone nor am I saying in any way, shape or form that cheating is okay but this is about more than just burning his clothes in a bon fire. These women could to jail and everyone is getting such a big laugh out of it and I’ve heard people say he deserved it and I’m wondering how they can say that. How can this be more his fault that hers? They BOTH had a spouse so how can you “blame” one of them more than the other and how can you possibly think this kind of physical violence is fine and okay and worse, funny?
I also know that some things just sound funny. 4 women super glue a man’s genitals *sounds* funny but do people honestly really find humor in this story? I find it pathetically sad and I find it sadder yet that other people find it funny or find that this man deserved it and I’d really like to see the flip side of this coin and the man had been the one to set up the woman and super glue her genitals. Then I don’t think there would be any humor in it. I even saw them talking about this on The View and 3 of the 4 woman on the show laughed at this and said the man deserved what he got UNTIL it was brought out that this woman was also married. I’m not sure how many people are aware of that fact.
Maybe I think this way because I have boys. My grandma had all boys. My cousins had all boys. I have two grandsons. I’m not sure but I just feel this shouldn’t be about what sex you are but what’s right and what’s wrong.
So what camp do you sit it? Do you think anyone, man or woman deserves this kind of thing?
