Amanda Marcotte wrote this on her twitter:

Female infidelity is worse than rape, according to panicked MRAs.http://j.mp/pZSJHi

What this is in reference to as you can tell from the link is how male feminist (mangina), Hugo Schwyzer, had sex with a woman he called “Jill” years ago.  “Jill” was seeing a man called “Ted” and had sex with “Ted” and Hugo in a short window of time.  “Jill” ended up pregnant, but never told “Ted” that she was having sex with another man.  “Ted” and “Jill” get married because of the baby, but “Ted” could be raising and paying for a kid that isn’t his.

Amanda Marcotte is acting like the only people who have a problem with Hugo’s behavior are “panicked MRAs” who can’t deal with “female infidelity”.  She has lied about what really happened here.  Yes, there was infidelity, but what (potentially) happened here was FRAUD, specifically paternity fraud.  Amanda Marcotte is trying to hide the real issue of FRAUD by claiming MRAs just want to control female sexuality.  At some level she knows that she has to defend Hugo’s behavior in those terms because otherwise what Hugo did looks like any other type of fraud that is illegal (assuming the kid is Hugo’s).

No one should let Amanda Marcotte get away with pretending that FRAUD isn’t the real issue here.

  1. “I’m free to go fuck whoever I want to.” does not equal “I’m free to make men pay for babies that aren’t theirs.”
    anymore than “I’m free to fuck whoever I want.” = “I’m free to (voluntarily) knock women up and then abandon them.”

  2. I am referencing this piece in my blog post that goes up tonight
