Imagine you’re on a podcast with Esther Perel. Or it can be any smug Reconciliation Industrial Complex quack of your choosing. Or perhaps it’s an insensitive disc jockey. And you must muster your arguments on this provocative idea: infidelity is abuse.
Not an unfortunate thing that happens to unlovable, controlling, sexless people who brought it upon themselves. But a toxic power dynamic that creates deep trauma.
But, but! Happiness!
But, but cake!
Forgive! Now! Before you’ve even checked the cell phone records!
Take some nugget of the conventional narrative and shred it. If you prefer a cage fight to a podcast, okay. Let your imagination go wild. What does that conversation look like?
This is your TED talk moment.
Happy Friday Challenge!
