Don't Sit Still Look Pretty...
It's election year in the U.S. where personal affairs literally get skewered all over the media. In American society do women and men get treated differently after the fall-out of an affair or other inappropriate interactions? Do women who were cheated on get judged more harshly in the media and society than men who were cheated on? We read this NY Times article which got us thinking - shouldn't there be equality of judgement AND forgiveness across the sexes? And, what would our favorite modern philosopher, Alain de Botton, say?
This past weekend we watched the Weiner (2016) documentary. It might be one of the most fascinating, outrageous and saddest commentaries on the political machinery and chaos behind an American campaign. Watch and decide for yourself.
