“I like to think they wouldn’t, but then again, seeing man after man in power trying to get away with it, that brings it home that they would.”
— Sarah, Prospect Heights

“Oh, not every man — about 60 percent of men would do it. I’d like to think that 40 percent of men have a conscience, though it could be just a weak libido.”
— Kimberly, DUMBO

“Yes, they would. Just because they are men.”
— Anna, Park Slope

“No, not all men. Men who cheat are probably not happy at home or with themselves.”
— Joanne, Park Slope

“No. There are plenty of men in the world who respect what family and marriage is. … But when they’re in a position of power, they think they can get away with it.”
— Rebecca, Park Slope

Reports that Gov. Eliot Spitzer hired prostitutes was the talk of political insiders all week. But the man on the street — in this case, the woman on the street — was talking about the story a little differently. Our inquiring photographer asked Brooklyn woman a simple question, “Would all men cheat on their wives if they knew they could get away with it?”

Reasonable discourse

bn from brooklyn heights says:
Hey Brooklyn Paper -

I'm a man. Just curious whether you think it would be cool and funny to run a front page questionnaire asking the question: ARE ALL WOMEN COWS? Yeah, people cheat. Men, especially. So you have two choices: You can either accept that that's what the world is like, and stop crying about it. Or, you can indulge in infantile, name-calling to make bitter, angry women feel smug and vindictive. Why are all men pigs? Because of the kind of ——y, sexist crap you're peddling.
