It’s been said that men cheating on women is still a thing because sexism is alive and well, but that's totally wrong. It’s not that sexism doesn’t still exist, it's just that a man cheating on his wife/girlfriend isn't a sexist act. On the contrary, it is those who adamantly refuse to cheat who are sexist.
Why doesn’t a man cheat? There are various reasons, though a main one (or the main one, who knows) is because the man doesn’t want to hurt his girlfriend. He doesn’t want to hurt her by sleeping around.
What a chauvinist.
Does he really think her life revolves around him? Does he think she can’t be happy unless he only has sex with her? Of course he does. He’s a sexist prick. He stays at home and abstains from wild sex with strangers for fear that his partner’s inferior mind will not be able to deal with him thinking about other people. He is not a good person.
There’s also a related phenomenon that is equally as sexist: men who refuse to have sex with married women. Why not? She is a free person. She can fuck whoever she wants. But these people see her as the property of her husband. If a friend of yours ever proudly announced how he turned down a married woman, cut off all contact. These are not people you should associate with. They are relics of a past we must let die.
Don’t think women aren’t terrible also for refusing to cheat. Women who don’t cheat on their partners tend to do so not because they see men as lesser, but instead because they are narcissists. Not unlike the misogynistic males, they believe any act of outside sex will cause their spouse to collapse under the weight of their own despair. But whereas men believe this is because a woman lacks the power to survive independently, non-cheating women believe that they are such fantastic beings that any man who has had the honour of being with them will crumble should she ever have sex with another. To put it simply, they're narcissists. Same goes for gay men and women.
And of course, women who refuse to have sex with married men are only hindering feminism. Here they have a man who respects his wife’s intelligence enough that he is willing to sleep around, and a woman refuses to have sex with him because he’s married. Way to go.
Not that I care for all this mindless sex people love so much. How hard is it just to masturbate? Doesn’t involve any work, and anyone over the age of two should have the intellectual capability to construct an imaginary scenario far more arousing than any a real life sexual encounter. Not to mention the fact that many articles have clearly stated that women are less likely to orgasm during sex than a man, which leads credence to the fact that masturbation is the better option. You can keep going until you climax, instead of having to stop because the other person’s already gotten all they can from the intercourse. And let's not forget you risk catching diseases like AIDS. True, it's possible to get AIDS in other ways, such as sharing needles. But you can always sterilise a needle by boiling it in water or bleach. Try doing that with a human and the result will be far from desirable. Not just because their skin will be melted off, but what if the person is black? Throw them into boiling bleach and you’re literally white washing them you racist!
Still, despite all that people feel the need to continue having sex. And yet many refuse and society congratulates them for it. We need to stop. We need to accept the uncomfortable truth that people are remaining faithful because they think less of their partners.
Of course, not everyone who doesn't cheat is a bad person. If you genuinely have no interest in sex outside of your relationship, it’s not sexism or narcissism. If, however, you lust over everything you see but refuse to act for fear of upsetting your partner, you’re an all round awful human being.
