A huge shout out to my friend Marcia for sending me this video. Check it out, it’s brilliant. And kind of sums up my day today.
First time published on HuffPo, gotta say, it was a love fest. I just posted practical how to’s on what not to do if you’re cheated on. You know, my standard, don’t be a chump.
Next article, I said — hey, general public, don’t assume betrayed spouses KNOW they are being cheated on (i.e., “Surely you must’ve known.”) Apparently, not a popular message. Seems that betrayed folks have Unresolved Issues that make people cheat on us. One woman said that marriage doesn’t mean that you own the other person’s genitals. (Really? Crap. I thought I got the owner’s manual with those.) The predictable — we did not evolve to be monogamous Darwinian Theory of Douchebaggery — was presented. And of course the proponents of open marriage, swinging, and polyamory weighed in.
Finally, rounding out the haters was a man who told me my aura was “gray and brown,” that my ex cheated on me because I did not “fulfill his needs,” that I was angry and bitter, and — touche! — my hair is “overgrown.”
Okay, I will cop to the overgrown hair.
But the color of my AURA? Really?
So if you feel like commenting on HuffPo, go have at the haters. I think I’m going to go draw a bath later, have a soak, and watch this video over and over again.
