It takes two to tango

By Jasmin Jenkins


When a man lies in bed with another woman who is not his partner, we automatically turn our heads at the other woman, instead of accusing the man. Men are put on a pedestal and congratulated when they cheat, but women are shamed and made to look like the problem when it takes two tango.

These women who are being cheated on need to resolve the first problem, which is their man. A man has the choice to say yes, or no; nobody forced them to comply in cheating. Women should not accept the “I didn’t kiss her first answer,” but grill them into the truth.

A big scandal going on right now is the Khloe Kardashian, Tristan Thompson, and Jordyn Woods. Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson have been accused by Khloe Kardashian of cheating together. Jordyn Woods is Kylie Jenner’s best friend and she has been receiving a lot of slut shaming. On March 1, Jordyn Woods went on “Red Table Talk” starring Jada Pinkett Smith to get her side of the story out. She admitted to Smith that she had kissed him, and they were touchy feely but nothing more.

After that interview, Khloe went on a rant on twitter early in the morning on March 1st and said “Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up! After getting some backlash Khloe soon tweeted out the next day, “What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault.”

My question is why didn’t Khloe didn’t take it up with both Tristan and Jordan face to face instead of going on social media and making it known to everyone, basically degrading Jordyn. This is the problem we face: women are treated completely different. This could all be stopped if we hold our men accountable instead of letting them get off with a slap on the wrist. Both parties are wrong, and they know they are wrong so hold them both equally with equal consequences.
