There’s nothing like a scorned person. Some people can easily walk away from a situation, but others take revenge. In the age of the internet, revenge is as easy as logging onto to website. A new website now allows women to anonymously post information about their husband’s or boyfriend’s alleged mistresses. Wives and girlfriends are now handing “Scarlet Letters” out to women on ShesAHomewrecker.com.
What these women are doing isn’t anything new. There are countless other sites that are aimed at outing the men involved in these relationships as well, but in a recent ABC News report, a woman found her name scattered all over ShesAHomewrecker.com.
Dana Scott, 29, said she found her name and location plastered on ShesAHomewrecker.com after she had ended an affair with a married man three years ago. Since the post about the affair appeared on the site a few months ago, Scott said she has been bombarded with insulting comments, derogatory names, even death wishes, online.
“I looked at it last night for the first time in months and started bawling my eyes out,” Scott said.
Ariella Alexander — that’s her online alias — is the woman who started ShesAHomewrecker.com and said she created it as a way to teach adulteresses a lesson.
“I hate to say it, but it’s going to — it can follow you for the rest of your life,” she said. “You appear on Google, I mean, everyone now knows what you’ve done.”
The website, which has more than 250,000 likes on Facebook, claims to expose the names, pictures and often torrid details about accused homewreckers and their adulterous ways. ShesAHomewrecker.com is a new twist on the booming trend of “revenge” websites, which allow jilted lovers or angry exes to humiliate their former flings.
Some people have called the revenge website another form of placing the blame on women and not holding the men accountable. But there’s always sites like Don’t Date Him Girl, which is relaunching next year, Woman Savers and countless other “bust a cheater” websites geared towards outing men. I guess what’s good for the cheating goose, is good for the gander who’s cheating with him? Oh, before anyone rushes over to the site to post a homewrecker, the site is currently down.
