  • thats a tough question to answer but no i dont believe all cheaters are scum, there are many different levels to cheating, what was the environment like when it happened, etc. etc. so in some cases, they arent always just down right scum
  • yeppers!!!!!!
  • Scum is a little strong. More like weak people with very little discipline. That's not to say people who cheat AREN'T scum. I just don't feel you're automatic scum for cheating.
  • Actually the fault is not in the cheater himself but in the other of the two in the relationship. It's easier to find GF/BF than to keep her/him. I've met many girls that DIDN'T TELL ME they have a BF until the morning waking after some night activities and after that people that don't know me start thinking that I am a bad person and I sleep with other guy's girlfriends. It really depends on the situation and most people judge too quickly without knowing the facts.
  • sometimes yeah...
  • i do not know i have not met all of the cheaters of the world but i would think that they were
  • I am far more concerned with the value of my OWN behavior in life...it's the only one with which I have control.
  • I think they are wimpy self centered people.
  • No to first timers. Yes to repeat offenders.
  • People that cheat are sometimes scum, and sometimes they are scared people that can't seem to be honest with their current partner because they are too afraid of conflict, and sometimes they are a combination of the two. It really depends on the individual's circumstances. In other words, sometimes a coward can be scum, and sometimes scum can be a coward, and sometimes scum is just scum and sometimes a coward is just a coward.* *(sorry... caffeine makes me ramble)
  • To get a better response, you need to lay a basic foundation:You need to ask a basic question: Why do people cheat? Is it ..because they can; because it's a rush; because it proves they still 'got it'; because it's exciting;etc. etc. etc.. here is a consideration to the question:Are cheaters Scum?...Answer the following questions: Was a human life affected or hurt, or humiliated, or ended helplessly lost and in despair? Now you may answer: Are they scum? Have you been in such a situation? How did it feel? Again...Are Cheaters Scum?
  • Everyone has cheated on a test of two and it is continually becoming more socially acceptable. In terms of relationships though, promiscuity is looked highly down upon. While the rate of sexually deviant partners remains somewhat constant, there is a newly formed rift of people that can accept the fact that their partner cheated. A few years ago, cheating was almost as bad as murder and for a lot of people it still is but others have accepted the fact that we are living in an increasingly sexual world.

  • No. I beleive that everyone makes bad choices from time to time, and sometimes those bad choices are to cheat. Good people do bad things sometimes, it's just a fact of life. However.. If people continue to do this repeatedly and do not learn from their mistakes, then I think they are getting closer to being labeled as "Scum". Sometimes things happen and people do bad things on a whim, but when they have recognized the consequences in their life, and continue to make bad choices then I think they haven't learned from their mistakes and have a major problem with themselves.
  • No but most are. See link: http://www.nomansblog.com/wp-content/themes/3ColumnK2/images/cheetah.jpg
  • Cheaters made the wrong choice but if they continue to make the wrong choice, then yes you can say they are scum..maybe even a scum bucket.
  • Define "cheater". I don't usually consider someone who has cheated once (maybe twice depending on circumstances) to be a "cheater". They are human and they have made mistakes. The important thing at that point is how they handle it and whether they learn from it. Habitual cheaters who continually disregard the emotional and psychological damage they are inflicting, as well as the risks they are taking with their spouse's or s/o's health, are dishonorable people. They are liars who are self-centered. They want what they want regardless of the harm they do to others. That sounds like scum to me. (Note: I am not including those who are in agreed upon "open" relationships under the category of habitual cheaters.)
  • No - I was a cheater - some may look at cheats that way BUT not everyone who cheats will cheat forever - Just because the saying "Once a cheat always a cheat" rhymes doesn't make it correct.
  • Nope. People can make one stupid mistake and I dont think they should be held to it forever. Or kill themselves as TooGrwon4ThisIsh said. Thats pretty extreme. If they do it repeatedly yes they're scum but I still dont think they should KILL THEMSELVES. O__o
  • Yes if it because they just cannot be happy with one person No if its because they are having a hard time. Its still wrong but they might be pushed to the limit. This is not allways their partners fault. It might be the cheaters inability to communicate with their partner and solve problems with them.
  • no. i believe that the act of cheating is scum-like. things happen, there are *few*, and i mean VERY few reasons when cheating is forgivable, but for the most part, the act in itself says a lot about the person.
  • Do you?
  • no they just have a lot of love to give
  • ummm...that would be yes!
  • Most cheaters are human... scum isn't even a mammal. Please, none of this "you do this... and that makes you this... and that's permanent" business! In fact, I'd go so far as to say that an emotional statement (such as "he is scum") can never follow from a factual statement (such as "that married man had sex with another woman"). It's fine if you say that you personally have that attitude toward that man, but let's not confuse an attitude with a fact.
  • No. But what they did sure was.
  • Yes, and I wish they would form their own city so they could all cheat on each other. Scum City. +5
  • I think every one has to be judged individually on that.
