Unless you’re a golf ball sinking in quicksand, you know about Tiger Woods’ situation. About how he cheated on his wife and whatnot. About how he seemed to have a penchant for blond women. Many blond women, but that’s besides the point.
It may not be the most kosher thing to cheat on your wife. While that may not be right, its also not right for the media & paparazzi constantly tearing him down as if its the latest blood sport. Well, yeah, okay…no one likes a two timer. However, the mass media isn’t any better. Who are these people to cast the first stone? Many people within the paparazzi industry also have skeletons in their grubby little closets. Let’s take a bet, how many members of this mass media are failed actors, musicians, athletes, etc. Not all, but some. As they report about the sex-a-bouts, they’re secretly venting their bitterness of never been. After all, the pen is mightier than the sword.
I’m not the type of person who says “oh that’s racist!” Yet ever notice that when David Letterman confessed about his infidelities, it lasted probably about like…a half a month. Let’s not forget that Letterman slept with his co-employees! Then Tiger Woods’s little car crash happened. Suddenly, Letterman’s scandal got swept under the rug. Even today, the media continues to pick this Tiger carcass down to the bone.
Okay, so Tiger got busy with a lot of tanned blond cocktail waitresses. So what. So fuckin’ what. (No pun intended) Like you never cheated on your significant other. Maybe you didn’t, but you know someone that did. Not saying that its cool to cheat behind someone’s back. With everything else that’s going on in the world, couldn’t we find more important news to talk about?
In the end, who are we to cast judgment? Clearly we forget that unless we are Tiger and his former model wife, we will never know the whole story. Could’ve been nothing but an illusion for all we know. Cheaper to keep up appearances than some expensive divorce. Perhaps they’re staying together for the sake of the kids, hey, you never know. Remember this; there are three sides to every story. His side, her side, and the truth.
Perhaps Tiger melted under celebrity pressure. Perhaps there’s only so much temptation to withhold from. It’s not always so easy to live under a perfected microscope. For example, how many people in high end stressful careers burn off steam by going to a dominatrix? That’s one example. Cause deep down inside, sex is psychological. Loneliness, sure, sometimes. Many times people participate in kinky games like domination and submission as stress release. It doesn’t matter what side you’re playing on. The point is, sexual fantasies are commonly used as an escape from everyday dilemmas. For example, take the film Secretary. In this movie, the main character is a mousy office worker with various emotional and mental issues. Somewhere between the interaction between her and her boss, she learns how to channel this energy into being a submissive.
You don’t even have to get extreme as with the whole S&M/bondage role playing trip. I was just using the aforementioned as an example. Tiger, crumbling under the pressure of sponsorship, competing, what have you, he escaped with fair-haired maidens.
So really in the end…who are we to cast judgment? If Tiger Woods is nothing but a low down dirty dog, then don’t worry. He got his already. Karma got served on a silver platter. The main course was public humiliation.
Leave the man alone. Woods and his family suffered enough already.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone…
