Tiger Woods: Why Do You Deserve Privacy?

Tiger, you were made famous by the public. Why do you think it's your right to hide from them?

Dr. Wendy Walsh: A growing number of women have been coming out of the woodwork with stories of mega-athlete Tiger Woods' marital indiscretions, and the media has been having a field day speculating about his infidelities -- and the true cause of his injuries sustained on Thanksgiving night. But is this fair? Do couples having problems always deserve privacy? Well, most do, but not when the couple contains a man like Tiger Woods. Here's why:

Tiger Woods is not rich and famous because he is a good golfer. Tiger is famous because the public paid money to attend his tourneys and tuned in to watch him on television (along with many targeted commercials). He is rich because consumers doled out hard-earned income to purchase products that he endorses -- products with marketing campaigns that highlight his brand -- integrity and character. He also owns a school for disadvantaged children that teaches character strength, and has spent most of his charitable time acting as the ultimate role model to young men.

Well, Tiger, I want my money back!

Not only did you damage my publicly funded fire hydrant, you damaged our youth. Just as President Clinton changed the cultural definition of sexual behavior -- a definition that's changed forever the way middle-schoolers sexually develop -- you have changed any lingering perceptions among young boys that women and children are to be honored and respected. You have brazenly ignored your marital vows, and have created a nest that clearly will be a confusion to your own little girl.

So, do you deserve privacy from media scrutiny? No way. You are a celebrity who has been created by the public, and you have a responsibility to that public. Responsibility. Remember that word, Tiger? It's that old-fashioned word that so few act out these days. You owe wives and mothers everywhere not some sorry explanation that you are "human." What is that, anyway? A way to rebrand yourself toward a "human" market who fails continually and looks for new rationalizations?

Yes, you are human, Tiger. But you are also a MAN. So man up! Get your ass to therapy and spend the time with your wife and kids that you normally spend in Vegas hotel rooms with hook-ups.

Dr W: Do you treat patients. Where is empathy? I hope not. Yikes

The public didn’t make him famous, his great talent made him famous long before he even realized that his dingus was supposed to be used for anything besides peeing!

You need to get a grip and go back to school before you actually try to treat a patient!

You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.
