TTC Diaries: Ashley Madison

12 Dec

Dear Diary,

I’m sure you’ve seen the commercials. A dating website for those committed to a spouse but want something on the side. Well, this sad excuse for an organization was very close to plastering their crap all over TTC vehicles. “Life is short. Have an affair,” is what the ads would say. Thankfully, the TTC rejected AM’s $200,000 campaign.

Of course everyone has a different moral worldview. What may be controversial to one person may be the norm for another, but I’ve always thought of adultery as the standard moral ground. How can something like this be considered good when it causes so much harm? We are not nihilists, this shouldn’t become a standard ideology, and yet it kind of is. Look at Woods and Letterman – men who caused so much harm yet are getting our sympathy. Let them be shamed.

It’s kind of like this:

Instead of being punished privately, mistakes made are a public affair. If it was one “transgression”, as Tiger would say it, I could understand the need for privacy, but repeat offenses? By this time you’re asking for it.

Ashley Madison is too taboo. I’m not conservative by any means but some lines are not meant to be crossed.

That’s all for today, Diary

forever faithful 😉

    Ashley Madison was founded by a Toronto guy. The TTC is really just supporting local business and entrepreneurs. I can’t fault them for that.
