I can't handle listening to her. Sounds like "blame the rape victim" type mentality. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
I wonder if she feels the same way about women who cheat? That husbands are to blame?

I really don't know why she calls herself a "doctor". Sometimes I wonder if she suffers from some sort of mental disorder. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I mean, come on, she really doesn't seem to have a grip on what reality really is. I watched her show when it was one TV just to laugh at her-but I was only 18 at the time. Now I don't believe I'd be able to stand it without throwing my TV from the window. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

I listen to Dr. Laura every afternoon. She doesn't let men off the hook. Really, she doesn't let ANYONE off the hook. I think that our society need a hefty dose of a sense of personal responsibility - which she provides.

Did you hear the broadcast the OP is refering to? Did she mishear or is there some aspect to "women cause their husbands to cheat" that involves taking personal responsibility.<br><br><br>
As an aside, I can understand why Laura, who had an affair with a married man, would like to make it his wifes fault.

She can; she has a doctorate. It's just in physiology, right? She's totally and completely untrained and uneducated in all the topics she's actually talking about. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">

That explains quite a bit! It was one of those morning shows this morning... I think NBC? It seemed pretty much straight out, women cause their husbands to stray by being "unloving" and men aren't right for doing it, but it never would have happened had the wife loved her husband as she "should" have. Blech... even typing that makes my feel icky and slightly amused that such a twisted lady is called to give people advice... sad sad world.

I didn't hear the broadcast in question. I have no doubt that she said it though. It pisses me off that she presents issues as 'women cause EVERYTHING bad that happens to them'. I wonder if her opinions about women/men are based on the people who call her show...the vast majority of them unable to wipe their bottoms without assistance. She has no middle ground (but then again, what big talker does?). My favorite moment was when she said that she's not opposed to gay adoption...just that <i>those</i> parents should be placed lower on the list than say, a same faith, opposite sex, married couple. You know, so the gay folks get the extras. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
I did like <i>The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands</i> though. I wish it was written by someone else so I could get people to read it and not think it's BS because she wrote it.

She better be careful...Karma is a boomerang. I have a bad feeling that we might be hearing about a Dr. Laura scandal with her husband visiting prostitutes or something. You can't say such a blank arrogant statement...because more often than not, it comes back to bite you in the butt.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry">

Cheating isn't as clear cut as some would like to make it.<br><br>
Contributing factors can come from the person themselves, issues within the marriage, severe traumas, you name it, it can all contribute to a person going outside their marriage.<br><br>
I listen to Dr. Laura now and then. I may not always agree with her, but she does often challenge my way of thinking.<br><br>
She has a doctorate, so she has earned the title of Dr. She has done clinical work in a therapuetic setting.

So..... women cause their husbands to cheat because why?..... we aren't subservient slaves and instant sex kittens?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"> Give me a break.....<br>
Talk about personal responsibilty? Tell men to be responsible for their own actions!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">
