Sarah Palin wants to go to Sudan for some reason. “…why should Sudan have any interest in hosting Palin? Even if the country weren’t in such a delicate state, what would be the point or purpose of any photo-op with Ann Curry? What interest could the Southern Sudanese have in hosting a governor who fought her state’s attempt to divest from companies working with the genocidal regime in Khartoum?”

Women cheat as much as men do. “When the power imbalances between men and women are eradicated, say psychologists, women philander as often as men do. That’s because sexual infidelity is related to power, not gender.”

    infidelity is related to power not gender…interesting. Then, I wonder why powerful women in the political realm seem to miss the infidelity bullet scandal after scandal. Less sloppy you suppose? Or is the concept of gender- the socially fabricated kind– here in the US so different from wherever the country where this study was taken?

    • it probably has more to do with the very different consequences women in power face. they may be powerful, but they’re still women, and they’re probably still likely to be punished for being sexual beings in ways that powerful men aren’t.
