A whore like his mother : How many of us hold arbitrary opinions that we have not examined and cant defend?

this is what got me started. –
My aunt was surprised when I told her that I had run into an old neighbor and her son, and that the son was flirty.

She shared with me that he was a whore like his mother.
I was blindsided.
“How is she a whore?” I asked.
“Well, she used to have that man over. he would spend the night.”

“Oh my!! really were was her husband?”
“Oh this was after he died.”
“So her kids were little and in the house?”
“No, they were all grown or away in college.”

Now I am confused. “Wait, the man was married?”
“No, he was single, divorced.”

Now I am screaming –
“Where is the whore part?!
They made porns?
Did it on the front lawn?
Where is the whore part?”
She answered me confidently…”he used to take her out and comeback and spend the night.”
So a widow and divorced man with adult children having sex, made her a whore… that just didnt make any sense to me and as I walked my aunt through the story she couldnt defend her position.
