This — minus the clever asides — could have been written by some fratboy college paper columnist who calls his conquests “whores” and then wears a nice polo to church on Sunday. Virgin/whore much?
Tiger Woods’ cheating isn’t a “symptom” of anything. The fact that anyone even cares about his cheating is the real symptom. I’m sure this is really crappy for his family, but that’s their business to begin with, not mine, or yours.
And as an aside of my own — I hate this “family friendly” image that athletes have to maintain in order to get and keep advertising deals and such. It makes hypocrites out of everyone, including people who act gleeful when they mess up.
(And sure, you know, I use words like “skank” and “ho” all the time, and am a hypocrite as much as anyone else, but I try not to employ them while delving into cultural analysis — because I feel weird making those kinds of statements about entire groups of women, or men)
