“Women from all political stripes can be successful in business, in their careers, in life, in however they define their success,” said Ross. “I don’t think radical feminists have done anything to protect women from those kinds of crimes.”

In other words, insisting that pointing at men as the perpetrators of sexual indiscretions are a convenient excuse for behavior that actually reflects the degradation of society as a whole.

“Human beings are imperfect and prone to temptation, and every once in a while – maybe more often than every once in a while – we succumb to temptation,” she said.

Dawn Eden, author of The Thrill Of The Chaste, points the knife even more directly at feminists, saying that they are directly responsible for the way women are portrayed.

“I would say that feminism actually creates the problem with the men's having affairs... because if feminists hadn't pushed for the Pill, other forms of contraception, abortion, and the morning-after pill as 'sexual freedom,' it would be much harder for men to get away with affairs.”

“Of course, the wives are victims--but there is also the problem in that the mistresses are participating. So it's not just a question of men using women.”
