The Tiger Woods Story

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 4:33 pm Sun 21st February 2010

Tiger Woods is a victim of domestic violence, but he’s the one who makes a humiliating apology and begs to be able to continue providing his violent wife with a billion-dollar lifestyle. The media have largely ignored the domestic violence, and the public are only interested in how genuine and remorseful his apology seemed. Imagine if the tables had been turned; if Tiger Woods had attacked his wife with a weapon after finding out she had been sexually unfaithful, if he had injured her and chased after her as she ran for her life, if he had attacked and damaged her car as she desperately drove away so frightened and distressed (and unable to see through the windscreen he had broken?) that she soon crashed the car into something. Tiger would have been charged under the US Violence Against Women Act, even if his wife did not make a formal complaint. The propaganda-soaked public would have focused almost entirely on his violence and her victimization, and those who sought to draw attention to her infidelity as a provocation would soon be shouted down with “violence is not OK” slogans. No way would she be going on television to apologize! Rather than losing advertising contracts, new offers would be rolling in especially from purveyors of products for modern women who are “worth it” enough to put their own needs first. Women’s magazines and other media would outbid each other for interviews with this brave survivor of domestic violence. Judges would uphold her right to be unfaithful because it’s not against any law. Feminist laws have ensured that her unfaithfulness would be sanitized through no-fault divorce, full relationship property entitlements, the ongoing right to occupy the family home, and close to certainty of keeping primary custody of any children and therefore ongoing financial support from her ex-husband. Indeed, if he had so much as raised his voice in objecting to his wife’s infidelity he could expect to have his civil rights and his relationship with his children further damaged through a protection order. In some countries including New Zealand, any claim by him that he was provoked by her infidelity would be rejected legally, and instead would probably have him judged as “victim-blaming” and therefore deserving of increased punishment. In fact, nobody should ever dare try to mention her infidelity because a woman will be protected from cross-examination concerning her sexual history. Aside from all of this, his wife would blame her unfaithfulness on Tiger’s insufficiency of some kind and the public would nod their heads in recognition of her hardship. And the only thing she is likely to be criticized for widely would be saying that her wishes now were to save her marriage and to protect her children’s family unit.

Ah, but that’s the way stories go when wives are unfaithful and husbands react. When the genders are reversed, we get the Tiger Woods story.


  1. Right on every point.

    I was reading an article on Women buying sex on overseas sex holidays. The excuses given – by women – were:

    a) Its ‘different’ for women;
    b) They were looking for the ‘tenderness that the world witholds from them’;
    and a real top-flight one,
    c) buying sex from poor native men helps their families and local economy.

  2. Mind you……

    I do not in any way approve of Tiger Woods’ behaviour. A man who is a serial cheater in the most important relationship he can have – far more important than with fans, media or sponsors – deserves a whack with a nine iron. I would have used a Driver, myself.

    From an MRA perspective, Hans is spot on pointing the egregious double-standards and bias, but also we MRAs have to lift the male game. We need to establish defensible Standards.

  3. I’ve tried deliberately to ignore the Tiger Woods crap being published everywhere. I couldn’t believe it when one of his sluts appeared on my TV as NEWS! The sickening whore (oops! ex-whore. She quit her job in the porn industry for him….apparently) fronted up with her female lawyer, playing the victim, seeking some of his wealth no doubt. The trollop had no shame that she was an equal party to almost ruining a complete family and instead put on a what-about-me-I’m-a-victim-too act that can only be described as below average. And she reckoned she had quit the porn industry? Yet she’s still trying to leverage her va-jay-jay for money….sickening!
    I even heard Tiger Woods denying that his wife had ever assaulted him, ever. He’s pussy-whipped by an abuser holding his children as hostage. WTF is the World doing looking for terrorists dressed in Arab clothing when the terrorists are walking amongst us dressed in Western clothing? I think I’ll switch my TV off when the News comes on in future. I’ll switch it back on when I hear ‘Bullshit at Six’ being advertised.

    Women have monopoly on violence, guns and jails.
    Every man is a phone call away from ruin.
    The only helpless woman is who wants to protect a man.

    The “Rule of 2 Women”, valid in all feminist countries:
    If one woman wants to ruin a man, and another wants to protect him (eg: angry wife v. his mother), then, our feminist dictatorship gives guns to the woman who hates him.

    The Rule of 2 Women is the foundation of our feminist dictatorship – the man-hating woman has to win.

    I am posting this fact to increase understanding of female violence, because it’s maybe 1000x higher than male violence, and we are all victims, one way or another.

    Majority of men don’t understand the Rule of 2 Women, while majority of women do understand it.

  5. What’s even worse, this groveling apology of Pussy Woods further reinforces a public expectation that men who get caught cheating must get down on their knees, beg forgiveness and take every blow visited on them. This used to be a peculiarly American trait, but Woods is helping propagate this bizarre form of male self-loathing around the world to save some fortune that he probably doesn’t even need. He’s a traitor to all men everywhere.

    What’s wrong with American men that they can’t say ‘none of your bloody business what goes on between me and my wife’? Have they completely forfeited any claim to a private life? Even their own president Bill Clinton acted as if he was owned. Can you imagine Hilary being answerable to the public with regard to her sex life? Helen Clark? Margaret Thatcher? I don’t think so.

  6. Reply to R.C

    ……I have to concur with everything you have said…Awesome to have some else that ‘speaks’ and ‘says’ exactly what they ‘mean’ and ‘think’…..well done Good Sir

    However ‘Traitor’…Hmmmmmm….Okay ‘rc’ that your opinion, and so be it…..I would rather say to Woods preferably to his face.. ‘Stand up an be counted you pathetic ‘Feminism’ Wimp’…..
    Also just my humble opinion I think Woods said this ‘Humble all my Fault’ sorry bit, to keep the remainder of his sponsors happy..and to try to win back the sponsors he lost

    Kind regards to rc John Dutchie

  7. Just a bit of ‘In political’ correct humour….’Tongue in Cheek’ I sure the Kiwi Feminazi Feminists will have a laugh too…..Not…!!!!!

    ‘A man is in a queue at Tesco and sees this busty blonde staring at him, he
    can’t believe she is staring at him, then she starts waving. ‘Excuse me do
    I know you?’ he asks. ‘Yes I think you are the father of one of my kids’
    she says.
    The man thinks back and remembers his one act of infidelity and says ‘Are
    you the bird I shagged on my stag night, whilst your mate whipped me and
    your other mate stuck a brush up my ar * e?’
    ‘No’ she replies ‘I’m your son’s English teacher!’

    What’s the ideal weight for a mother-in-law?
    About 2.3 pounds including the urn.

  8. Interestingly “women’s magazines” in North America do not carry gossip articles. We know it’s simply female bullying – perpetuated by the old boys … seems to be an English thing to put others down in a futile attempt to raise one’s own standing. Tabloids carry gossip. Women’s magazines feature articles for women. I for one, could care less what Tiger Woods does. It doesn’t change the statistics.

  9. what statistics?

    Comment by Scott B — Tue 23rd February 2010 @ 9:36 pm

  10. “seems to be an English thing to put others down in a futile attempt to raise one’s own standing” True they are the worst but there is plenty of it in NZ as well. If I were president…

  11. I’m not sure how the content of women’s magazines is related to this thread. And I too am interested in what you mean by “It doesn’t change the statistics”.

  12. I very much doubt we’ll get an answer!

  13. Just fixing up your typo:

    Angela says: We know it’s simply female bullying — perpetuated by the old boys …

    We know it’s simply female bullying — perpetuated by the old boys girls …

  14. I take exception to this slur of the English, Angela. Putting people down is a universal phenomenon and not limited to the Englsh. Americans do it, so do the French and Chinese. Australians have a term – -‘Tall Poppy Cutting’. I think you are being a tad bigotted. I could do that too, if you like.

  15. Told you we wouldn’t get an answer!

  16. Participants of this forum concentrate too much on unimportant details, instead of concentrating on essential aspects of gender relationships.

    The reference point, to understand all relationships is this: WOMEN EXPLOIT MEN.
    No man can find an exploitable woman, not even a cost neutral woman.
    The only choice a young man has is to minimize exploitation by finding a modest woman who exploits little. But he can never avoid exploitation. Men are proud to be exploited and to sacrifice themselves for women, up to a reasonable point.

  17. i didn’t know that Tiger Woods is a womanizer too;-.

    Comment by Angel Baker — Wed 29th September 2010 @ 6:41 pm

  18. It seems Tiger Woods got exploited too.

    US$100,000,000 payoff BEFORE ‘child support’ payments!

    Yep. You read that correctly – One hundred million dollars.
