Why Do We Always Blame the Girl?

I was listening to a CD of 60s hits and heard a pair of Lesley Gore Songs.

From Its My Party and I Can Cry If I Want To:

Judy and Johnny just walked through the door (walked through the door)
Like a queen with her king
Oh, what a birthday surprise
Judy's wearing his ring

From It’s Judy’s Turn to Cry

Aww when Judy left with Johnny at my party (my party)
And came back wearing his ring
I sat down and cried my eyes out
Now that was a foolish thing
'Cause now it's Judy's turn to cry
Judy's turn to cry
Judy's turn to cry
'Cause Johnny's come back
To me

Why does Johnny get a pass for two-timing her and Judy gets blamed?

Do we expect more from our girlfriends than we do from our boyfriends/husbands/lovers? There is an unwritten rule that the man in your life is supposed to be off limits to your girlfriends/sisters/any female close to you. However, why shouldn’t the two-timing jilter also get part of the blame?

Eve has been blamed since she and Adam got kicked out of the garden of Eden. Since then, the evil seductress has been accused of tempting some poor male beyond his feeble attempts to remain faithful. Remember it takes two to tango-no matter what the tangle ensues.

So quit living life like it is a pop ballad where Johnny gets a free pass rather than the kick in the ass he deserves.
