As shocking as it may seem, a website dedicated to helping people find extra-marital dalliances is used almost only by men! Who could have seen that coming. The tag line for the Ashley Madison website, much in the news this past week or so, is, “Life is Short. Have an Affair.” Dubious advice to be sure, but it attracts mostly men: Duh!
Out of 5.5 million female accounts, roughly zero percent had ever shown any kind of activity at all, after the day they were created. The men’s accounts tell a story of lively engagement with the site, with over 20 million men hopefully looking at their inboxes, and over 10 million of them initiating chats. The women’s accounts show so little activity that they might as well not be there. … we’re left with data that suggests Ashley Madison is a site where tens of millions of men write mail, chat, and spend money for women who aren’t there.
Why would anybody be shocked that men are from Mars, and women are from Venus? Modern liberals/progressives, descendents of Marx and communism, have a hard time accepting that human nature is not malleable, and the stubborn fact that women really are fundamentally different than men. Feminism was built on obliterating these differences, and the successful effort, so far, to redefine marriage is part and parcel of the same movement.
Those who are familiar with their Bibles should never be shocked that men are sex obsessed and women are not. All the way back in Exodus 20 we see that the Tenth Commandment says, “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.” I guess women have never been real keen on coveting their neighbor’s husband. Lamentably Jesus takes this one step further in his Sermon on the Mount:
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
I guess women looking at men lustfully is not something Jesus felt the need to address. Not only does the “textbook” on human nature, the Bible, tell us the way men and women are, so does all of history, our experience, and plain old common sense. As Genesis 1 tells us, God created man in his own image, male and female he created them. The two make one, perfect complimentarity, and no amount of social engineering, wishful thinking, government dictate, or deliberate obfuscation will ever change that.
