Ask Ijeoma: Is The “Other Woman” Free To Do As She Pleases?
Ijeoma Oluo

Hell yes a woman should feel bad about getting involved with someone who has a partner, not to mention a family. Actually, she should avoid feeling bad by not doing it in the first place. Not only is it the respectful way to act towards her fellow woman, it’s the SELF-respecting thing to do. Why would one even WANT to be with a man who was too gutless and dishonest to get out of one relationship before beginning another? I’ve always believed that women have the power. Men are going to try and pull their shit but they can’t if we don’t allow them to. If women refuse to get involved with men who already have wives or girlfriends they will have no one to cheat with.
