On basic fucking morality

So I don’t really get this ‘thou shall not have sex with another woman’s man’ mantra. I’m not saying I agree with cheating, I’m just saying the blame is 100% on the actual cheater. Like, if you’re not friends, if you don’t know her, then you’re not breaking any loyalty. You don’t owe her anything. The person who cheated, they are breaking someone’s trust. So if you then decide that you don’t want to sleep with someone who has a partner, because they’re clearly a shitty person for wanting to, that’s different. I don’t really see how the person someone cheated with is morally reprehensible themselves, since the pain their partner will feel stems from the fact they cheated, not the fact they cheated with *you*. So, since you clearly don’t agree, I suppose my question is, why am I wrong?

 

You’re wrong because your moral code is weak, and your position is a perfect example of moral disengagement through diffusion of responsibility.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re friends with the other woman or not. If you knowingly have sex with another woman’s man, you are complicit in the affair. Yes, what he’s doing is much worse, but what you are doing is still wrong. Sorry, but you don’t get a free pass just because you have emotional distance from the person you’re hurting.

And don’t try and make this about loyalty. It’s not. It’s about common fucking decency, and fucking another woman’s man simply because “you don’t owe her anything” makes you a shitty person.

Honestly, this is entry-level morality we’re talking about here. Why is this stuff so hard for you people to understand?
